I had to take Bobcat to work at 10am and when I got back home I found that a new puzzle by IceColdUk had been published. It looked intriguing too. I had a look and progressed through the first stage quite quickly. There were a few ways to go on from there but I made a lot of progress on one of them. Then I hit a wall and had a few doubts that I was on the right line. I very nearly gave up at that point.

I decided to continue on for a bit and was rewarded when the cipher decode suddenly started to make some sense. It took about an hour to solve in all. I thought that there were more than the claimed three stages, but I didn't mind at all as that added to the fun.

I debated whether to go for the FTF straightaway or to wait for a couple of hours for when I picked up Bobcat. The former won out as I really wanted that fake ID card.

I wasn't in that much of a rush though and that probably saved the life of the pheasant that dashed out in front of me near the GZ. The cache was an easy find. I took the FTF ID and the counterfeit cash (and left an empty money clip).

Yeah baby! This kind of puzzle really is my bag so have a fave point.

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.
