250-MULTI-CACHE CACHER [a Challenge Cache]
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
It might appear that not all geocachers are keen to spend some time visiting 1+ stages gathering information prior to finding a multicache, preferring to find regulars to boost their statistics - if so, they would be missing out to qualify for this CHALLENGE CACHE! At the time of siting I have found just over 400 multicaches.
This is a CHALLENGE CACHE - your profile statistics MUST SHOW 250 or more MULTICACHES have been found by you BEFORE you log this cache as Found to earn a smiley. However the geocache rules are such that you can find this cache, sign the log, Write Note on the cache page, and then log Found It on the day that you have found 250+ multicaches - BUT THIS CACHE MUST NOT BE YOUR 250th. I will be checking your profile for your qualifying finds so please ensure that they are available to view.
As this is a multicache challenge, this cache is - yes you have guessed - a multicache! The above coords will take you to a small container in which there is a field puzzle to solve to enable you to find the actual cache. To help, you should not need a maths degree to solve the puzzle [I am not that mean, or capable of setting a difficult puzzle!].
The 1st stage container and final cache are on public footpaths on Ramshorn Down, from which there are fabulous 360 degree views including beautiful Devon farming, Haytor and Dartmoor and our very own (love it or hate it) large multi-department store alongside the A38!
THERE IS NO PEN/CIL IN THE FINAL CACHE = PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN!!!
My grateful thanks to Yukonhuskies for creating both cache containers, although sadly the first stage container has gone missing mid-2018. PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM UNABLE TO MAINTAIN THE FIRST STAGE OF THIS CACHE AT THE MOMENT. MEANWHILE PLEASE NOTE = North final coords are N50 33.(A+B+A). The remainder of the formula is still correct.
