When I got home on Tuesday I found that this series had just been published. I had a quick scan through the set. All of them very difficult I thought but this one appeared to have a little strand that I could unpick. However that didn't seem to go anywhere and so I moved on to the others.

A couple of hours of total failure on the remainder of the series followed. I went back to this one a couple of times but in the end spent most of my time struggling with the Text Adventure. I do remember however going to bed thinking of GEAG5 and HANSHE9 and oddly hopeful that I could come up with the solution in my sleep.

Did that work? Well no actually. I'd forgotten all about it and only remembered again yesterday evening. The FTFs for numbers 2 to 7 had all gone by then so I thought I'd give #1 another go. I went back to my original ideas and this time I spotted the final step immediately. A really good puzzle. But why couldn't I finish it on Tuesday night?

We did consider going for the FTF last night but it was starting to get dark by then (I admit that I was a bit worried about the warning of a possible sneaky hide). So we decided to go for it early this morning instead.

At the GZ there were a few possible hiding places but I found the cache in a couple of minutes. We haven't had the opportunity to go for FTFs for a couple of months so we were really pleased to see an empty log here.

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.
