Time to put this one to bed. Many thanks to all the visitors and the nice logs [:)].

Geocache Description:

The cache is not at the given location - that is the location of J15 of the M6. The cache is very close-by though and should not take you long to find once you've worked out the co-ordinates. You could be on your way within 10 minutes of coming off the motorway.


If you are like us, you soon get bored on long motorway journeys, so we thought it might be fun to have a mini-IQ test to help you pass the time.

Question 1

Question 2

A ball is dropped to the ground from a height of 10ft. It then bounces up to half it's original height then falls back. It then repeats this always bouncing up to half the previous height. The ball travels a total of BC feet.

Question 3

Question 4

Question 5

A car travels 80 miles in the time that another car travelling 10mph faster travels 100 miles. The faster car is travelling at FGmph, but what is FG?

Scoring Yourself

Ok, we know it's a bit simplistic and that a real IQ test would have a lot more questions, but this is just for fun on a long journey so we could not be that evil and ask you too many questions (or could we?)!

Answering honestly, and not counting the ones you had to have help on, score yourself according to the number of questions you got correct out of 5. If you are brave enough, we'd love to hear your score in your log. If you're too shy, then no problem either - it's only for fun.

The Cache Itself

Find the solutions for A-G above. The cache can then be found at N52 5(A+1).(F-B)DB W002 1B.(F-G)(F-C)(E+1).

You are looking for a camo'd M&M container that we brought back from our summer trip to the USA. It's about 3 inches long and just less than an inch in diameter. There is room for small swaps, but's it's probably slightly too narrow for TB tags - we've left a few swaps to get things started, including a lovely nano container we'd really like someone to make into a cache for us to find.

The cache should be suit friendly and do-able from the pavement / roadside.

The cache is not in anyone's garden and is well away from the nearby house but we'd ask anyone who attempts the cache to make sure the coast is clear and to be very stealthy in their searching as the last thing we want is to annoy the local residents as it's not fair on them.
