Alien MacGyver

An alien vessel crash landed. The aliens perished but they left parts of a beacon that you can reconstruct in order to find a cache of supplies left for visitors from their planet.

At the posted coordinates you will find the tools you need. Take the tools in their container and go to stage 1. Follow the instructions to find the cache. Then return the tools. If the tools are missing there may be another caching group ahead. You can join them or wait for the tools to return.


The tools are used to find the cache they are NOT for trading.

In 1948 an alien vessel from Zeta Reticuli which is a binary star system located about 39 light-years away from earth landed near Milton,Ontario.

Their mission was to assemble a landing beacon for future travelers from their planet. The aliens used materials they found in the area to help them reconstruct their beacon. Unfortunately, as with many field repairs, the results were not sufficient to guide additional visitors from the Zeta Reticuli system. You can however use parts from their beacon to find a cache of supplies left behind for future travelers.

It has been said that light travels in a straight PATH unless you bend it. Visitors from the Zeta Reticuli system could travel at the speed of light. As a mere mortal you can’t. This means that you will need at least one partner in order to find the alien cache.

We do know that there are four intermediate steps that must be accomplished sequentially in order to complete the beacon. You will be required to mate the alien beacon parts with the mounting locations found in the vicinity of the crashed lander. Be careful as the aliens were confused by Earth’s gravity. This confusion resulted in the creation of mounts that accept the beacon parts in more than one direction.

The Zeta Reticuli system is very close to their star. The AAA fuel cells provided were never intended for extended use in cold weather. You may find the fuel cells depleted in colder weather. Bringing back up fuel cells is recommended.


Sorry for the confusion folks there was an error in the Launch kits for the BFL event. The cache page is correct so be sure to follow those instructions.
