Found it colincactus found Bohemian Rhapsody

Easter Sunday. I was very thick-headed this morning. I'd adjusted my bedside alarm clock for BST without realising that it adjusts itself automatically: it took me half an hour to realise what had happened. Then I'd spent a leisurely half hour eating breakfast (plus a couple of caramel mini eggs). I'd even watched a Top Gear special where they crossed the Andes (the absolute confirmation of my thick-headedness).

Then I finally turned on my PC to find that a new Mashworth puzzle had been published two hours before. I quickly worked out the subject and solved it, but there were five people through the checker already. It wasn't far and the FTF seemed to be still up for grabs, so I decided to dash off to get it with Bobcat. We've only managed one FTF in this series so far (plus two DNFs while trying for an FTF).

There were a few cars parked in odd looking places, a sure sign of an FTFer, but it seems they were just Easter visitors. The hint pointed us to an obvious place to search and I found the cache in seconds. Were we first? I unclicked the lid...Woohoo yes we were.

We took the travel slug. We also swapped the toy tank with some replacements that were less "Top Gear": a pretty heart wristband, a bouncy ball and a one rupee coin from Mauritius.

A great series of puzzles by the way.

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.
