Clin d'oeil à Al-cab

Cette cache est un petit clin d'oeil à Al-cab, geocacheur bien connu sur la place de Paris (et surement ailleurs). Inutile de le harceler, il n'y est pour rien dans ce mystère.

This cache is a small snap to Al-cab, a well known geocacher in Paris (and probably elsewhere). No need to harass him, he's for nothing in this mystery (english description below).


3 heure du matin, je maudis l'inventeur du téléphone !

- "Allllô", dis-je encore à moitié ensommeillé.

- "Ah tu es réveillé, super ! Une nouvelle cache vient de tomber. Allez zou, on tente le FTF !"

- "A trois heure du mat, mais t'es pas bien ! Et pour ton info, je dormais."

- "Rhooo, fais pas ton rabat-joie, je t'ai connu plus prompt à l'aventure."

- "Gnnn... bon, ok, c'est quoi l'histoire ?"

- "Une mystery, mais je bloque un peu..."

- "Et tu ne veux pas essayer de l'al-cabiser."

- "Bah ça fait deux heures que j'y suis, mais en plein coeur du bois de Vincennes je ne suis pas rassuré."

- "Ah oui, chaud ! Bon envoie l'énigme, je te rappelle."

- "Super, je t'envoie un SMS."

Quelques secondes plus tard je recevais ce message :


3 am ... May the phone inventor be cursed !

- "Hallllo", say I half sleepy

- "Ah great, you're awake ! A new cache has been published. Come on, let's try the FTF !"

- "You're insane, it's 3 am ! And I wasn't awake."

- "Ohhh, stop being a kill-joy ! You're used to be more adventourous in the past."

- "Gnnn... Okay, Okay... What's the stuff ?"

- "It's a mystery but I'm a little bit stuck..."

- "Can't you al-cabize it ?"

- "I've tried during two hours, but it's right in the middle of the bois de Vincennes, and I'm not so courageous."

- "Ouch ! That's hot... Well, send the riddle, I'll call you back."

- "Great, I'll text it to you right now."

Few seconds later, I received this message :
