I had a look for new puzzles at lunchtime and was pleased to see a new one from Ice Cold. It appeared to be on a subject that is dear to my heart (just last weekend in fact we went to see the new pigs at Chinthurst Hill with the Surrey Wildlife Trust). But it turned out to be on another of my favourite things instead.

After five minutes of random googling I hadn't got any further though. I sat back and considered what the next step might be. Then it came to me, and within ten minutes I had some numbers. A clever decode - with as it says only a mild ambiguity.

Nobody else had got through the checker by the time I left work, so I rang Bobcat to tell him to get his homework done as we might be on for a FTF. We haven't done any night caching for months now so he also put the torch on charge. After a short delay (my daughter wanted some help with some differential equations and then to be dropped off at the gym) we arrived at the suggested parking place. We walked along to the GZ and Bobcat found the cache in the first place he looked.

I signed the blank log - very pleased to be first as we haven't had that many FTFs since the summer. We're not as slick as we used to be though. Bobcat got a coin to put in the cache but then dropped it. We fumbled around looking for it, he found it, but then somehow lost the cache lid. After five minutes of searching, with our hands getting colder and colder, we gave up. Fortunately we had a spare cache in our bag so used its lid as a replacement.

Good fun and great puzzle.

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.
