I'd been out shopping this evening with Bobcat and had then spent half an hour packing the groceries away, searching for a vase to put some daffs in, putting out the recycling, emptying and refilling the dish washer, and half-watching Arsenal lose 1:3 to Bayern Munich.

With the game finished I turned on the computer and saw that a new puzzle had been published nearly an hour before. I almost didn't look at it as I was sure that somebody would've already solved it, but I did and there were none.

I had a quick look at it. Hmm...something looked familiar and that suggested a theme. After a little research the theme was confirmed. I had another quick look at the cache page, now there was one failure by somebody but no passes. The only question now was the decode. There were a few obvious ways (but I could see they weren't the solution as the numbers couldn't work), then another thought suggested itself and I was through the checker first time. Nice one.

I printed off the cache page - nobody else had yet solved it and we live fairly close by, so I asked Bobcat whether he fancied wading through some mud in the dark for an FTF. The only worry we had was our torch which had failed us a couple of days ago: I'd only remembered to start recharging it about ten minutes before so I knew it wouldn't last us long.

After parking up we set off down the muddy track - Bobcat with the big torch and me with a little windup one. It wasn't too muddy to start with but then at the deepest point the big torch faded away to nothing. We would've turned back at this point but I remembered that my phone had a flashlight app so that came to our rescue.

We continued on and the mud lessened. It was an easy find by Bobcat, and we were very pleased to be first. Signed the log and left a little Eiffel Tower.

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.
