How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:

This is the the 22nd cache in the series of alphabet caches. The purpose of this cache is to eventually create a series of caches from A to Z. The next cache in the series is Alphabet W - What a Wonderful World of Words (GCNP8X) by Jyrki&Sari.

The given coordinates are bogus.

Cache is 716.9*A meters in direction 78.47*B from the reference point. The values for A and B can be found by visiting Alphabet U - Unknown Logos

To determine the reference point following conditions must be met. Distances are based on Oziexplorer. If you use spherical model for calculating the distances then use numbers in (parenthesis) R=6398km.

  1. The distance from final location of one of the caches [A-U] to the reference point is 5506 (5506) meters.
  2. The distance from final location of one of the caches [A-U] to the reference point is 3038 (3042) meters.
  3. The distance from final location of one of the caches [A-U] to the reference point is 10500 (10509) meters.
  4. The distance from final location of one of the caches [A-U] to the reference point is 4203 (4203) meters.

To guarantee the continuity of the series, the following rules apply:

  • The first finder of this cache must place a cache corresponding to the next letter in the alphabet within two weeks from the find. The cache must also be named like "Alphabet ? - ?...", where ? is the next letter and ?... is any name beginning with that letter.
  • The next cache must be placed within the capital city region. That is, within the limits of Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa or Kauniainen.
  • The cache description must be constructed so that the cache can only be found by finding the previous alphabet cache. The preferred way is to write the final coordinates of the cache into the log book of the previous cache.
  • These rules must apply also to the rest of the caches. Please copy these rules to the description.

Please don't rush yourself to be the first finder if you can't quickly put up the next cache. There are plenty of geocachers in the capital region who can.
