Found it colincactus found London Pride

Friday, October 19, 2012South East England, United Kingdom


I looked at this for a long time when it came out but couldn't identify the man. He looked very much like another famous person so I spent ages on that dead end, before finally concluding that all bewigged men look the same. So I put the puzzle aside.

Then a year or so ago, when wandering around the Internet, I just happened across the man. I did some more research but still couldn't solve it.

Earlier this summer I was thinking about another puzzle and found the man again - I'd forgotten all about him. I was going backwards. I decided to have another go at solving it and this time made sense of another of the clues.

How to get numbers out though? I'd tried quite a few things before but nothing had worked. Then one Friday lunchtime I was having a pint (of London Pride) with a work colleague. He's a non-cacher so I had to explain the various ways that co-ordinates can be encoded. I showed him all the clues, and of course this time I could see it. A great puzzle.

Out today to pick it up. It started raining quite heavily when I left the car but fortunately at the GZ it was a quick find.

Left a keyring and took the little angel.

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.
