Schurki: Sorry, seems that somebody has stolen the cache box and dumped the content into the water. Fortunately there was no TB in the box. Good bye to my favourite cache box [:(]

Geocache Description:

The search for the Google-Hupf

Für diesen Cache solltet ihr ca. 1 1/2 Stunden einplanen. Er kann sowohl zu Fuss, als auch auf Rad oder Rollerskates zurückgelegt werden. Im Sommer empfiehlt es sich, Badezeug mitzunehmen, im Winter sind eher Eislaufschuhe angesagt. Speziell im Sommer an warmen Tagen kann es sein, dass der Cache schwer zu heben und zurückzulegen ist, in diesem Falle empfiehlt es sich, zeitig in der Früh oder spät am Abend zu kommen.

Stage 1: Der Vogelkäfig

Ausgangspunkt ist:

N 48° 14.268
E 16° 25.448

Das sollte mit der U1 recht gut zu erreichen sein. Zähle die Vögel, die sich auf der südwestlichen Seite des Glaskäfigs befinden. Ihre Anzahl ist A.

Stage 2: Unsere Gewässer und unsere Wälder

N2 = N1 + 4*A + 6
E2 = E1 + 4*A*10 - A

Wer ist für unsere Gewässer und unsere Wälder verantwortlich? Addiere die beiden Zahlen, das Ergebnis ist B

Stage 3: Die Spare Ribs Station

N3 = N2 - (A+4)*(A+4)
E3 = E2 + B + 2*A + 5

Der blaue Löwe wartet bereits auf Dich. Welche Nummer bewacht er? Die Zahl ist C. Hast Du Hunger, dann kannst Du ja hier ein wenig verweilen (Der Stage Titel sagt Dir, was Du bestellen solltest)

Stage 4: Nationalparks

N4 = N3 - A*C - B + C + 2
E4 = E4 + A*C - 10

Wieviele Kilometer ist der Nationalpark Neusiedlersee entfernt? Die Zahl ist D.

Stage 5: Auf Italien pfeif I

N5 = N4 - 2*(D+C+1)
E5 = E4 + A + B + C + 1

Fliegen lassen kannst Du ihn nicht, aber seine Hautfarbe ist, obwohl doch etwas weiter weg, deutlich erkennbar.
wenn blau, dann E = 48
wenn braun, dann E = 103
wenn gelb, dann E = 23
wenn rot, dann E = 5

Stage 6: Der Google-Hupf Cache (warum heißt der so?)

N6 = N5 - A*E - 10*A -A
E6 = E5 + E

For this cache you should plan about 1 1/2 hours. You can either walk or take the bike or rollerskates. In summer I would recommend bringing swimming gear, in winter rather skates would be apropriate. In summer, especially on hot days, the area might be overcrowded and it could be difficult to retrieve and return the cache. In this case I would recommend coming either in the early morning or in the late evening.

Stage 1: The birds cage

Starting point is:

N 48° 14.268
E 16° 25.448

Should be reachable with Underground U1 easily. Count the birds which are visible on the south-west side of the glass cage. Their number is A.

Stage 2: Our water, our forests

N2 = N1 + 4*A + 6
E2 = E1 + 4*A*10 - A

Who is responsible for our water and our forests? Add both numbers, the result is B.

Stage 3: Spare Ribs Station

N3 = N2 - (A+4)*(A+4)
E3 = E2 + B + 2*A + 5

The blue lion is already waiting for you. Which number is he guarding? The number is C. If you are hungry, just stay (stage title will tell you what to order)

Stage 4: National Parks

N4 = N3 - A*C - B + C + 2
E4 = E4 + A*C - 10

What is the distance in kilometer to the National Park Neusiedlersee? The number is D.

Stage 5: Auf Italien pfeif I (I whistle on Italy, hard to understand for a non-Austrian)

N5 = N4 - 2*(D+C+1)
E5 = E4 + A + B + C + 1

You can't let it fly, but it's skin color is visible clearly, although a bit further away.
if blue then E = 48
if brown then E = 103
if yellow then E = 23
if red then E = 5

Stage 6: The Google-Hupf Cache (why the hell is it called Google-Hupf?)

N6 = N5 - A*E - 10*A -A
E6 = E5 + E
