Geocache Description:


The cache is not at the given location, but within half a mile. It is a green bison tube.

To the day when the heads were to fall, I might have known this and seen this, and known you and seen you, any time these years. In a Minute, number eight thousand and forty, you had had patience for a month, at most. “I have to give,” the Ghost replied, “the circumstance that some people had lately died in the streets.” The rough mental notes made in the first minutes to the misconduct and most improper behaviour of Mr Mantalini devoted themselves to the families of the important functionaries from the dockyard. I seemed to have boots on, and to be dangling them all against the edges of the stairs.

Congratulations to darkskill for being FTF.


This is a new version of a cache I set last year, where the puzzle proved popular but the location of the final cache was a poor choice. This one should be better.

As far as I'm aware, there's no particular Charles Dickens connection to Cambridge, but his son was a student at Trinity Hall, hence the placement of the cache icon. The final cache is placed near a street name that appears in one of his books, but it's the London one of the same name.


This cache is part of the Master of Mystery #21 Perth, Western Australia.
