Geocache Description:

A puzzle cache in a growing series based around caching aliases. This a direct replacement for GC464BX.

I have been on many caching expeditions with Amberel, including quite a few of the caches listed below. Over the years, I have seen him progress further into extreme caching, in particular tree climbs, and for that reason, I have replaced the original hide for one in keeping with the namesakes interests! The final is in the same (geo) location, however you will need to look upwards to see it. Please bear this in mind when retrieving, and cache within your capabilities.

Identify a number associated with each cache in the list below, and use the formulae to derive the co-ordinates.

Some highly recommended caches

(A) The Legend of the Lost Cachers. An epic night out, and one of my favourite field puzzles.
(B) The Quest for St Aldhelm's Glove. I loved this cache from start to finish. The start requires some unusual research, and the final is also a small adventure in its own right. See my log here
(C) eat mess shine. A rare FTF for me, and very good it was too. Sadly, now archived.
(D) Earnanaes, þæs wyrmes denn. My favourite caving adventure so far.
(E) Safety Dance. As a music fan, I latched onto this puzzle very quickly, little realising what beatiful countryside we were going to visit.
(F) Ale Trail - A Taste of History. An epic trail through the streets of London.
(G) I Love Dr Beeching – Tickets To Ride. Tree climbs and abseils. What more could an adventurer ask for?
(H) Devil's Dyke. On the day we did this, visibility was about 100m, although that didn't stop the fun on these ingenious hides.
(I) Forbrydelsen: Mangler. Another by my favourite puzzle setter. A very well crafted collection of field puzzles set to a theme.
(J) Glamr. As a fan of night caches, this ranks up there as one of the best.
(K) Medway Canoe Trail. Splashing about on the water.
(L) The Ascent of Man. One where I surprised myself with my capabilities.
(M) Squirrel's Skylight. One where the CO and Amberel joined me for this fun cache.
(N) 1337 H4x0r. I love technical puzzles...
(O) Yew'll feel this afterwards. Some twisty turny tree clambouring.
(P) Below Above - The Janitor's Blither. My all time favourite cache container.
(Q) The White Bird. One of my first forays into the underground world near Box, and an excellent introduction to the mines. Well worth a visit.
(R) Another Knight Cache. A night cache. I like night caches.
