Geocache Description:

One of a series of caches hidden in honour of International Pi Day by cachers from all over the world.


March 14th is known as International Pi Day as, if you write the date in the American format (i.e. 3/14), then you get the first three digits of Pi.

We've got together with a number of other cachers across the world to hide the caches in this series. A full list of caches in the series is contained in the list below.

Letter Country / State GC-Code
(Event)
GC-Code
(Traditional)
GC-Code
(Mystery)
A Wyoming / USA GC5NCPG GC5NE8Q GC5NE8Z
B California / USA GC5JYZE GC5MVRY GC5MVT4
D Alabama / USA GC5KJ1D GC5KMCX GC5MVPA
E Cambridgeshire / England GC5GZY0 GC5GZYH GC5GZZP
G/M Baden-Württemberg / Germany GC5MEEM GC5K0MG GC5M52T
H Aragón / Spain GC5K0C5 GC5K0C8 GC5K0CD
X Sachsen-Anhalt / Germany GC5JW95 GC5N76N GC5N773

Each traditional cache contains a numerical value for the letter on the left hand side of the appropriate row. For example, cache GC5GZYH contains the numerical value of E.

The mystery caches in the series can be found by using the numerical values of the other letters in the series.

This cache can therefore be found at:

N 52° (G-100).(X+M+H+20) W 000° (D-20).((6*(A+B))+E+H)

Each cacher in the series has hosted an event in order to mark the day. The event is of no significance in finding any of the other caches in the series and, once the day is passed, will only be of historical interest. We've listed them here purely for your own curiosity.

You may wish to get together with other cachers located elsewhere, in order to share information as to the numerical values, for mutual assistance. Please do so offline via emails etc, please do not list any values on the cache pages. If another cacher approaches you for information as to any numerical values you might hold, please be as helpful as you would like another cacher to be if you were the one needing the information.

For this cache, you are looking for a small lock-and-lock hidden within two miles of the published co-ords. At time of placing, GZ was muddy underfoot in places and we'd strongly recommend wellies if there has been a lot of rain. Suggested parking is in the geochecker.

You will need to bring your own pen.
