Found it BaSHful found The Well Travelled Challenge - Gold

Tuesday, August 22, 2017South East England, United Kingdom

Out and about with my good mate WhiteFriar for another excellent if tiring day's caching. It stayed dry, which was good. It was pleasantly warm, which was good. It was very humid, which was not so good! Wherigos were the order of the day, taking up much of our time, though we did also manage a small circuit and a few Village Signs. No Church Micros, nor Fine Pairs, nor SideTracked for us today, though we did manage a few drive-bys on our travels. A broadly successful day with all objectives met which more than compensated for finishing the day sticky and exhausted.

I was far from qualified when this was published and only gave the puzzle a cursory look. Baffled! However, earlier this year I passed the 20 mark and decided I should have a proper look at it. Still baffled!! How about a hint? How about another hint? That led me to something I'd never heard of before and, more importantly, a solution.

Seeing as it had been recently found, I thought to make this the first cache of the day and WhiteFriar generously fell in with this, though he won't qualify anytime soon. At stage one our GPSs initially disagreed by around 100 feet. Not a good start. However, after maybe 10 minutes we identified the correct host and very soon after the co-ordinates for the final.

At the final we initially had no success, which we followed up with much more no success. On the verge of giving up we (again) perused past logs and this time I spotted something promising. Now I had tried that but on trying again, and reaching that little bit further, I suddenly found I had a container in hand!! A little over the hour, car to car, but tempered by success.

BaSHful.

PS. Took the "ChriNi2 Geocaching License" trackable.

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.
