Geocache Description:

This is the 13th cache in the series of alphabet caches. The purpose of this cache is to eventually create a series of caches from A to Z. The next cache in the series is Alphabet N - No More Otaniemi! (GCMQ6C) by Liimes.

To find this cache, you must first visit Alphabet L - Lord's House, the (NMS24). There you can find needed values A and B.

The given coordinates point to a place where you can buy mice. This is the reference point. The Mousetrap is located so that it catches mice that have escaped from the shop.

The coordinates for the Mousetrap can be calculated using the following method: add A to the latitude value of the reference point and B to the longitude value of the reference point.

To guarantee the continuity of the series, the following rules apply:

  • The first finder of this cache must place a cache corresponding to the next letter in the alphabet within two weeks from the find. The cache must also be named like "Alphabet ? - ?...", where ? is the next letter and ?... is any name beginning with that letter.
  • The next cache must be placed within the capital city region. That is, within the limits of Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa or Kauniainen.
  • The cache description must be constructed so that the cache can only be found by finding the previous alphabet cache. The preferred way is to write the final coordinates of the cache into the log book of the previous cache.
  • These rules must apply also to the rest of the caches. Please copy these rules to the description.

Please don't rush yourself to be the first finder if you can't quickly put up the next cache. There are plenty of geocachers in the capital region who can.
