Found it colincactus found #7 – The Three Rs – Ivy

I've been steadily working through the puzzles in this series over the past few days. For some of them I didn't have a clue how to start (#7 fell into that camp), while for others it was fairly obvious what to do even if the actual doing of it was hard (such as for #9).

I didn't have any Internet access at lunchtime today but I had print-outs of #7 and #9 so that I could continue work on them. I'd had a vague idea about #7 a couple of days before but nothing had come of it. This time I tried it in a slightly different way and suddenly some numbers started to come out. It was so neat it had to be right (apart from the fact that it wasn't as the digits added to 20 instead of the 21 written on my print-out).

When I got home I checked the cache page again and found that it had now been corrected to say that the digits summed to 20. Yay. I put the co-ordinates into the Geochecker and got a green tick - but I was the fourth one through. Nobody had found it yet though so I asked the kids whether they fancied an FTF race tonight. They did, so I grabbed the other puzzles I'd solved and we set off.

We decided to go for this one first. It was fairly obvious where to search but there were a few possible hiding places. Emma wasn't that keen on searching where she was (she'd seen something much more interesting in the field) so I took over and found it pretty quickly. We were really pleased to be first.

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.
