Geocache Description:

An den genannten Koordinaten kann man unter den beiden Peilungen 317° und 133° jeweils ein Objekt oder eine Lokation mit dem selben Namen anpeilen (eines wurde nach dem anderen benannt).

Aus der Lösung ergibt sich die Finalkoordinate:

N 54° A.03B E 007° 53.CD8

Zur Berechnung werden die Position der Buchstaben der Rätsellösung im Alphabet benötigt (A=1 .. Z=26; Ä=A, Ö=O, Ü=U)

A = (Anzahl Buchstaben) + (letzter Buchstabe)
B = (4. Buchstabe)
C = (1. Buchstabe) / 2
D = (letzter Buchstabe) * 2

Schön wäre ein Foto im Log des Cachers, welches in der Nähe der gegebenen Koordinaten und einem "geeigneten" Hintergrund aufgenommen wurde (ist schonmal ein kleiner Hinweis zur Lösung des Rätsels) - und natürlich keine Bilder mit den Lösungen!


At the given coordinates 317° und 133° represent bearings to one object or one location with the same name (actually one is named after the other).

From the solution of the mystery the final coordinates can be calculated:

N 54° A.03B E 007° 53.CD8

For the calculation the position of the letters of the solution in the alphabet are neccessary (A=1 .. Z=26; Ä=A, Ö=O, Ü=U)

A = (Number of letters) + (last letter)
B = (4. letter)
C = (1. letter) / 2
D = (last letter) * 2

Nice would be a picture in the cachers log taken near the given coordinates with the cacher in front of an "appropriate" background (that´s a little hint upfront to the mystery) - and obviously no pictures with some kind of solution!
