I began with the PuCK Butterfly series and wanted to create more, so here is the Treble Clef Series. It has been created using a theme that most people can find enjoyment in, in some form or another - music. I have tried to include a wide range of styles, but I apologise if your personal favourite is not included.
As the theme is music, the most obvious symbol to use seemed to be the treble clef, so I set about asking the extremely helpful nognod to create it for me, as he is skilled at creating shapes with co-ordinates. He is also willing to help others to create shapes of their own. If anyone wishes to do this, please contact him through his geocaching profile page.
These caches can be solved by older kids and teenagers, but will be a bit of a challenge to the younger ones, I'm afraid, and the puzzles do become more challenging towards the end of the series. But as usual, all of our cache containers will be as big as possible and most will include at least a few swappables, so the actual walks will be enjoyable for all the family.
The caches are set out in 3 separate circular walks of between 2- 4 miles each. Please forgive any "gaps" in the circuits; these exist solely because I've had work around pre-existing caches, which you can also pick up on your way round, if you haven't done so already.
All the caches have been placed with kind permission from the National Trust.
This is a multi-layered puzzle. First, find a connection between songs by these artists. Having found the connection, you then need to work out the "positions" which will then help you to work out the final solution to the puzzle for the final cache co-ordinates before you leave home.
If you wish to check your puzzle answers with me before going to collect the cache, please contact me through my geocaching profile and I will happily confirm if you have solved the puzzle correctly to save you a partly wasted trip.
