Found it colincactus found Missing In Action III

I found this very difficult. Such a short and tricky message. I had a look yesterday for a few hours but I wasn't getting anywhere close to an answer.

This evening I had another look on the train home from work, and concluded that one of my early assumptions from yesterday was decidedly questionable. I set to work as soon as the kids had finished their homework. This time a sensible message started to appear within half an hour - it was very satisfying when it all made sense.

The question now was whether to try for the FTF (the geocaching website was down so I couldn't check whether anybody had found it earlier today). The Bobcat was keen. I saw that night caching was not recommended for this cache, but we knew the area fairly well. So armed with our big torch we set off.

I had a few doubts when we arrived at the GZ, but the co-ordinates were good and we soon found the cache.

infoA Mystery Cache is the “catch-all” of cache types, this form of cache can involve complicated puzzles you will first need to solve to determine the coordinates. The only commonality of this cache type is that the coordinates listed are not of the actual cache location but a general reference point, such as a nearby parking location. Due to the increasing creativity of geocaching this becomes the staging ground for new and unique challenges.
