2 Cotas: Hi Guys...

First I would thank to all that help me out with this cache.
Erix, that accepts it, despite some initial doubts. Then those guys that try it. Those who actually goes there and find the damn box… The others that colourful the “cache marada” story! Last those that find the solution but never try to find the translucent container: Ulisses, Orebelo e Pmartins.

The story was simple. I have tried to put some caches far from home, the soon became ware that the maintenance problem was a pain in the ‘ss. So nothing better than a cache just outside of my house. Right in the front yard. And with a front yard only with a square foot, (well… maybe two), that couldn’t just “be” there. I must join some difficult. So a kind of riddle was introduced. Not simple, but not too much difficult.
The initial spot was just 1000 km from Portuguese shore. Far enough to assure that no moron will try it. Then change the numbers from the real location to letters and them adding a bit more spice… displacing one digit as the position increases. Simply the first digit is the real one, the second is the real plus one more, the third two more…and so one.

8 smart ‘sses later, I’m moving… And just assuming that a cache in the front yard, (okok just outside any else front door), is not a common and advisable thing, I figure that I’ve to archive it. That’s life… So from today on there is no container there, try not to upset those guys who will try to live in the future.

But, just w8… I’ll came out with something in the meanwhile…

Take care; there are some guys over here that will turn your life in to misery if you let them try…

Geocache Description:

Please do not put the exact coordinates/location here!!!

Something is wrong!!!


Was you should have understand by now, the spot given by the coordinates does not correspond to a Terrain 1 cache. And ask yourself if there is any mistake with it.
In fact no! But you should not take your underwater gear or rent a boat.
Instead you should take note of the cache’s name, try to decode the coordinates it represents and then seek... There are no hints for this one. And only the fact that I tell that is a Portuguese cache don’t allow me to classify it as a 5.
Good Luck


Como já deve ter percebido, as coordenadas indicadas não correspondem a uma cache de terreno 1. Por isso poderá perguntar-se se não estará qualquer coisa mal.
Na realidade não. É mesmo assim e não vale a pena equipar-se ou alugar um barco...
Em vez disso, deverá anotar o nome da cache, tentar decifrar as coordenadas que elas representam e procurar... Não há dicas. E só o fato de dizer que é uma cache em Portugal me impede de classifica-la de dificuldade 5.
Boa sorte
