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

Geocache Description:

(Français) Une belle balade sur le Wangenberg, avec un autre système de coordonnées que d'habitude.
(English) A visit to the Wangenberg hill, with views over the surrounding countryside, and a chance to use a different coordinate system.

(Français) Au point de départ, il faut chercher Austin et Allen. Un panneau à l'entrée vous donne déjà un indice. (Pour les historiens: qu'auront-ils pu faire dans ce secteur?)

Les coordonnées de la cache sont en format UTM (sur un GPS Garmin il faut choisir "UTM UPS"), comme suite:

32U ((Austin * 9) - 3332) ((Allen * 24) - 26365)

La route d'ici vers la cache fait environ 5 km aller-retour, mais les sentiers sont très faciles. Il y a aussi une possibilité de se garer plus proche de la cache, mais je vous laisse la découvrir.

(English) At the start point, you need to find Austin and Allen. One of the signs at the entrance will give you a clue. (Bonus question: what were they doing in this area anyway?)

Set your GPS to UTM format (for example, "UTM UPS" on Garmin), and calculate the final cache coordinates as follows:

32U ((Austin * 9) - 3332) ((Allen * 24) - 26365)

It's a round trip of about 5km to the cache and back. There are other possibilities to drive closer to the cache, which I'll let you discover (you will need a good map).
