How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
The location is for the suggested parking NOT for the cache. CODES HAVE TO BE SOLVED BEFORE THE CACHE LOCATION IS FOUND. This cache was inspired by the junior Vermin's interest in codes and cyphers. The location is a "Caesar's camp" (actually an Iron Age hillfort) near Farnborough
Some homework is required before stepping out on this cache! Websites might help and some basic (14 year old) deviousness and maths is required. At the end of this you are looking for a regular ammo box, that started off full of puzzle games. This Caesar's camp has a great view of Farnborough airfield and when the show is on you can see all of the aerobatics very well.
IN WINTER THIS CACHE CAN GET VERY EXPOSED - PLEASE COVER IT WELL WITH DEAD LEAVES AND BRACKEN TO PREVENT ACCIDENTAL DISCOVERY
Solve the follow formula (what value is Y?):
3Y + 15 = 2Y + (10^2 - 84)
If Y is Odd choose Binary A, if Y is Even choose Binary B
Convert the binary code into American Standard Code (for Information Interchange)
Geocode the American Code (otherwise known as a Caesar Shift 13 or Rot13)
Square the text and read vertically for the initial cache coordinates
Subtract XXVII from the last 3 numbers of the Northing. Add LXXXI to the last 3 numbers of the Westing.
Given all the comments on the steep climb, we thought that we might add that the steepest climb is the direct route from the car park to the cache! This steep climb heads SW and is up the NE corner of the hill. If you head more to the South and then up to a ridge, you can climb up to the Caesar's Camp from the East side which is a gentler route!
