Geocache Description:


A Wherigo Cache With a Twist


The cache is NOT at the posted coordinates, but you may begin your search from any point in the world!


The posted coordinates are meant to mask the final location and if you go there you will be moving. However, you might be moving in the wrong direction.

You can follow the instructions below to get you setup your device for wherigo's and test out reverse wherigo's on this cache. Good luck and have fun. This Wherigo converts your player into a virtual version of the "Reverse Cache Box" which tells you the distance to the cache, but not the bearing. You may begin your search from any spot in the world using your Smartphone or Wherigo compatible GPS to navigate to the cache.

The cartridge was created by Waldmeister and is available to download from the website.

-Waldmeister-'s "The first Reverse Cache [WIG]" is the original cache in this family.

Your task is to find the cache by periodically querying your Reverse Cache Box for the distance to the final location. Try to use your Reverse Cache Box as few times as possible. All instructions and necessary information needed to complete the cartridge is contained within it. The cartridge is multilingual. When entering the lanuage you can shorten it to 2 digits, example: English to EN.

To begin, you will have to type this code into your player:


It is suggested that you take the code with you on your journey. It will be needed if it becomes necessary to restart your player for any reason.


When you have reached the final, you will be given some statistics on your quest. If you wish, you may enter the details into your log, and also post the number of times you calculated the distance.

At the end of the game, you will be given a personal pass-code which you can enter into the cartridge if you select "create" rather than "play" when you start the cartridge. Save this code, and if you ever wish to create your own reverse cache, you can do so. -Waldmeister- would like you to inform him of your new edition of his handiwork. Please do not include hints in your log about where and how you found the cache or post photos that would give away the final location.

Any Spoilers in the logs and they will be deleted without contacting the log owner

Have Fun!

This cache idea was stolen fair and square from Philbeer's "Yuma, AZ Reverse Wherigo Cache
