Rainbow Trout is a GeoArt series of caches with a range of puzzles – some easy, some quite hard.
The Cache is a one litre poly pipe with room for swaps and trackables. BYO pen. Please return the cache as you found it.
Don’t go to the listed co-ordinates, as it may be on private property, up a mountain range, or at the bottom of the Goulburn River, and the cache is not located there anyhow. Use the puzzle below to find the actual cache location.
The Puzzle –
Three words to find your cache?
I was out geocaching with a friend one day when she began to speak with great vagueness. I became concerned and remembered she had had some fainting recently and had been referred to a heart specialist. I asked her whether she’d had enough caching for the day.
She replied with honesty, saying she was also feeling a bit faint. We had a bit of a rest, a drink of water then headed back home. Luckily I was driving and we had been caching locally, so the trip back to her place was completed safely and quickly.
Less caches than we expected, but sometimes health comes before numbers!
