How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:

Be clever like a fox and follow him into the nice woods of the Taunus region!

The coordinates given above are not the cache coordinates!

You will get the Coordinates of the starting place when you solve this Sudoku.

How to solve a Sudoku:
Put the numbers from 1 to 9 into the empty fields but make sure that
in every row and in every column and in every of the 3x3 fields,
each number occours exactly once!

If you solved it you will know where to start.
Starting coordinates:
N 50 F6 A3 . G4 E7 I9
E 08 D6 G4 . F8 A8 E2

There you will find a place for your car and some signs. One deals with "Radwege"

To find Stage 1 you need:
Delta N= (km of Verbindung Ma... - Fa…)*10+7
Delta E= (Höhenmeter of Verbindung Ma... - Fa…)+(km of Verbindung Ho...-Fa...)+2,5

Search Stage 1 at:
North of start position+Delta N
East of start position +Delta E

At a later Stage the coordinates will lead you directly to a sign!
Look at the sign and calculate the following:
W=Km to BHF-Kr...
M=last Number of [Fa...+Hoh...]

Next stage can be found at:
N 50 13.[W-A5][M][M]
E 8 27.[A5][W+1][D7]

It is strongly reccomended to take a print-out of this description and the solved Sudoku with you on the trail!

You might find a piece of paper and a pencil very usefull as well!

Be prepared for a signifikant hike. It took me about 2,5 hours just to walk the trail (without hiding...) So you might need upto 5 hours depending on your fitness, intelligence and searching abilities. :-)

And don't forget to bring enough trading items with you! You will have the chance to trade more than once if you just go for this cache!

Last but not least:
- Don´t miss the Foxstone Bonus Cache right beside your trail!
- and the Bacon Head Cache will offer a good way back to where you came from!

Happy caching!

P.S: Stage descriptions are in german only! So it is recommended for native english speakers to pick up a weird German speaking person that does not fear to acompany a crazy geocacher in the lonesome woods! :)

P.P.S: Thanks to weihbischof for his permission to use the original cachename!
