## Geocache Description:

The objective of this cache is to show you a very quiet place that is now a shadow of what it used to be !

Once you get there take some time to drive/walk around and imagine it a few decades ago… I left some “points of interest coordinates” inside the final cache to help.

Now the hunt !

This coordinates will take you to a park were you must find the following 5 structures to obtain the hints to waypoint 2.

The most distant structure is only 110 m from the given coordinates.

You don't necessarily need to follow this order to achieve your goal.

See the attached pictures to help you find the structures.

# Toma d' Água

Beside the Toma d'Água there is a train painted on the tiles. What is the number on the train chimney ?

Example: if the number is 0962 , then A = 0962

# Pinheirinhos

In the plaque in front of the well there is a price, assume the comma as a variable separation.

The answers are your variables B , C

Example: if price is 25,45  ;  then B = 25   and   C = 45

Bebedouro

In the watering place you will see lots of number. What is their total ?

Example: if the numbers are 1; 2 ; 3 ; 4 ; 5 , the total is 1+2+3+4+5 = 15 , then D = 15

Chafariz

Find the date in this fountain.

The answers are your variables E  , F and G

Example: if date is 22-7-1940  ,  then E = 22  ,  F = 7  and  G = 1940

Busto

In José Maria dos Santos bust there are three dates, his birth (Nascimento) , death (Falecimento) and homage (homenagem).

The answers are your variables H  ,  I  ,  J

Example:   N. 1800  -  F. 1850

Homage   -  July 1900

then H = 1800  ,  I = 1850  and then J = 1900

Now it is time for some math !!

Waypoint 2 is :   North  P º  Q , R

West   S º  T , U

Were :    P = D / 3 – E

Q = GI

R = B x CAQ

S = F – 1

T = JHC

U = ( T + 2 ) x E + D

Done ?  Do you want to make sure you have it right ? Well… Waypoint 2 is 3850 meters away from the given coordinates.
