Geocache Description:


Set for the 2018 Winter Geolympix with permission from the National Trust. If you intend to attempt the Letter/Box Challenge on Mega day you may want to leave this until then.

A Puzzle-type Letterbox/Hybrid cache (please don't remove the ink pad or stamp; they're not swaps) - The cache is NOT at the given co-ords, but it within two miles of this spot.. To work out exactly where, first you have to crack a puzzle or code.

Method 1: Use some AANDs (Aluminium Alpha-Numeric Discs. There are around 4,000 in circulation) and go to F51° 4U.XCT' V000° 3B.GED'. Picking which combination of AANDs you need could be a 1/100 guess, so I've added some clues to this hsfd...

Method 2: Solve this cache's twin, and deduct 0.174 from the Northings and add 0.017 to the Westings to get the co-ords for this cache. Easy! This also works vice-versa, of course... You may also find extra clues there.

Method 3: Take the final digit of the years requested for these women and female characters and creations to calculate the final co-ords of this cache, using the following formula. There are larger versions of the images in this cache's Gallery - and the one linked to above (I decided to split the listing in two) - if you need a better look. Good luck!

The final is hidden at N51 4A.BC W000 3D.EF where:

A=L
B=N+(Mx(W+Y))
C=P+(V-Z)
D=J
E=HQ-T
F=(GxR)-K
Note HQ is a two digit number. If H=9 and Q=9 HQ is 99 not 81!

G
Year of her death.

H
Year the film was released.

J
Year she made history.

K
A. J. Year of her birth.

L
Last digit of year of the actress's birth.

M
First appearance in the film franchise.

N
Year of release.

P
First appearance in print.

Q
Year she was born or died.

R
Year of the film's release.

T
Release of the original game.

V
Numeric value (A=1, B=2.., J=0, Z=6) of the first letter of her surname.

W
Year of publication of the book, not this 2001 film adaptation.

Y
Age when she died.

Z
Numeric value of the first letter of the actress, singer, monologist and comedienne's surname.

Please DO NOT remove the stamp or ink pad. Neither is a swap - They make this cache a LetterBox/Hybrid. Thank you!
