How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

This is a 2 part multi cache in New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

"PLEASE, NO TRAVEL BUGS SHOULD BE PLACED IN THIS CACHE as they will be listed in the wrong country!".

This is a two-part, two-person cache. The first part is a plaque located in Tauranga. The plaque has the co-ordinates of the second part, which is in Finchampstead, Berkshire, England, some 11,580 miles away!

This is how it works. After locating Part 1 in Tauranga, use the Groundspeak forum (United Kingdom page) to make contact with a geocache partner in the UK who is willing to find Part 2 (the main cache) for you. When a UK partner is found you then email him/her the co-ordinates of the main cache and your UK partner has found the second part of the cache he/she must email you to confirm that the cache is complete. When you have received this confirmation both parties can claim the find. Please note the name of your partner in the log.

The UK cache is an ammo box with various swaps and a prize for the FTF.
It is located on a wooded public footpath in the ancient village of Finchampstead, Royal County of Berkshire, Southen England.
The main cache degree of difficulty is 2/2;
Footpaths may be muddy in wet weather..
It is accessible from several footpaths.

The cache is being run in conjunction with Birders, who have part 2 of a similar cache Over the Pole North to South - GCMYD6 located in the UK close to part 2 of this cache."
