Geocache Description:

Potholes of fun!

This is a two stage multi-cache placed whilst we were geocaching in the area. After realising there were no caches in the nearby vicinity of a "must see" place in the area (with millions of years of history behind the place), we decided to place a cache there.

The co-ords above will take you to the a sign (note the wording on the sign) and then use the following formula

Way Point 2 can be found at
S24 40.XXX E30 48.YYY

where :
XXX = (number of letters in first word on the 1st line) followed by (number of letters in the last word on the 3rd line) followed by (number of letters in first word on 2nd line) ..
YYY = (number of letters in fourth word on the 3rd line) followed by (number of letters in the first word on the 2nd line) followed by (number of letters in last word on 3rd line) ..

This will take you to another sign...

From here the final cache can be located at
S24 40.AAA E30 48.BBB

AAA= ((number of pictures on the sign) * 46) + 2 BBB= the top left symbol says "NO XXXXXX", take the first letter of the XXXXX and covert to numbers, A=1,B=2,C=3 etc, then multiple that number by 3, then multiply it again by the number of items in the top row, then multiply again by 2, then add 117 to the final number.

The final cache is not for the claustrophobic !!!

Please do not STAND on top of any of the rocks in this area, I suggest you walk with your GPS held reasonably high above your head to get signal.

Please make sure you wedge the containre back in place so it stays there.. You do not need to go anyplace "illegal for day visitors" to get to the cache.
