Long Man: Hi There

I have made two requests for this cache to be maintained and I see it is still disabled. I feel you have has sufficient time to perform a maintenance visit but have failed to do so. Because of this I have no option but to archive your cache.

If you wish to email me please send your email via my profile (click on my name) and quote the cache name and number.

How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

The location given is that of the car park to start from, not the cache.

The location given is that of the car park from which you should begin your hunt, not the cache itself. In fact, this secondary cache can only be found with international team-working because:

This cache is just one cache of a set of 30 caches named "European IMC No. 1 ?" (IMC = International Multi-Cache). These caches are hidden in 15 European countries:

Austria (A), Belgium (B), Denmark (DK), Finland (FIN), France (F), Germany (D), Great Britain (GB), Hungary (H), Ireland (IRL), Italy (I), Luxembourg (L), Netherlands (NL), Portugal (P), Spain (E) and Sweden (S).

In each country there are two caches - a secondary cache like this one and a primary cache. The 15 primary caches are called "European IMC No.1 P-x - yyy" and the 15 secondary caches "European IMC No.1 S-x - zzz" where x is the country code given above and yyy and zzz can be any additional name. The primary cache in the UK is called European IMC No.1 P-GB-Hill Views.

In addition to the normal content (stash-note, logbook, pencil, give-aways), the primary cache contains a list of hints about the location of the secondary caches, one for each of the other countries. To be able to search for and find a secondary cache, you need to obtain the relevant (GB) hints from all 15 of the primary caches! So you either need to travel to each of the other 15 countries and find the primary there to collect the British hint yourself, or, and this is the real intention of the European IMC No. 1, you need to do some international co-operation. This means contacting a finder of the each of the other primary European IMC No. 1 caches and exchanging hints.

And please don't be a bad sport!

Never publish these hints anywhere! Not in a log report or on any web side. The hints should only be exchanged between geocachers who have found the primary caches and want to search the secondary caches. If you want to find this secondary cache, you should:

1. Find the primary European IMC No. 1 cache in the UK. This contains hints to swap and a template for finding this secondary cache.

2. Contact a finder of each of the other primary European IMC No. 1 caches and exchange hints

3. Put the hints together

4. Go and look for the secondary cache

The European IMC No. 1 team wish you good luck!
