A nice easy cache with quite a few stages all in swing parks except for the final cache location.
This cache is a tour of the swing parks of Gosport and is one to take the children along with you!! When you have visited all the parks and collected all the clues you will have the co-ordinates of the final location where I have placed the usual Tupperware. The co-ordinates are in the format:
N AB CD.EFG W HIJ KL.MNP
Just to start you off I can tell you that A=5 and H=0
Drive to location 1 at The co-ordinates above (main co-ordinate) and in this park you will find an engine with a number on the side. Take 3 from this number and you have the answer for P
Drive to location 2 at N50 47.185 W001 08.259 and in this park you can find a little blue and red motorbike. On the side of this in one of the fixing screws is a number in the format: _GJ_ _ _ _ _ _ _
Drive to location 3 at N50 47.855 W001 08.154 and in this park you will find some tyres joined together to make part of a climbing frame. How many tyres= E
Drive to location 4 at N50 47.799 W001 08.436 and at this location if you count the numer of seats within the rope swing enclosure the answer is F
Drive to location 5 at N50 48.991 W001 09.647 and at this park count the number of enclosed swings of the type for very young children. This is equal to K
Drive to location 6 at N50 48.661 W001 07.994 and at this park you will find some small stepping stones leading to one of the pieces of apparatus. Add the quantity of these to the amount of seats within this park and you will have resolved N
Drive to location 7 at N50 48.526 W001 07.948 and at this park find out the company that make the swings. The telephone number of this company is in the format _ _ _ M _ _ I _ _ _ _
Drive to location 8 at N50 48.242 W001 12.407 and at this park you will find a rope tube. On the large label which shows the company name you will also find a fax no in the format B_ D_ C_ _ _ _ _ _. In the same park you will also find a large spider web type climbing frame made from rope. On the joiner to this rope you will find a number in the format _ _ _ _ / L _ _ _.
Congratulations, you now have all the parts of the co-ordinates and should be able to find the final part. May I suggest after all this playing you take the children to the ‘Penguin café’ who serve fantastic ice creams as after all this swinging and sliding they must be quite thirsty and hungry? I hope you have enjoyed doing this cache as much as my children enjoyed me placing it. I would suggest that it could be done in about an hour plus playing time, but that is up to you.
