Geocache Description:

Note: The cache has been replaced on April 21 2008 and the description and the hint has been revised. Nothing has changeds with regards to the coordinates.

This Cache can't be approached directly, as you have to complete some tasks first to obtain the correct coordinates. It's hidden approximately 40 km. north-east of Aarhus.

The name of cache originates from its hiding place rather than its content. The container is a painted ammo-box. The cache is not visible but covered.

Task 1: Go to the start-coordinates. Enjoy the view for a moment. Look west and see an entrance - go for it. Stop at the fence :) Look up to the left and count the number of square holes on a row just below the top. Remember the number - you'll need it later!!

Task 2: Now go to N 56° 13.111 E 010° 30.108. Count the number of stones supporting the big stone. Again remember the number you'll need it later.

Task 3: Now count the number of stones in the outer circle. Of course you also need to remember this number.

Task 4: Now you're ready to go to the cache coordinates. The coordinates are found in the following way:
Add one to the number found in task 2 and call that x.
Let yy be the number found in task 3.
Substract 2 from the number found in task 1 and call that z.
N 56° 12.xyy E 010° 30.z00

The cache contains:

  • Christmas "ball" with snow
  • Christmas tie
  • PS2/Usb converter
  • CD
  • Glowing dolphins
  • A pencil and a log book

There are additional hints below. ONLY read/decrypt one sentence at a time because each one brings you closer to the cache!!
