Found it colincactus found #3 Wizardario's Challenge-Alphanumeric Cache Name

Sunday, May 6, 2012South East England, United Kingdom

I had a look at this when it was published and found that I only had X to go. I've done quite a few of the X marks the spot series but none of those count as they always start 'X'. Then a few weeks ago MrCryptic set a puzzle called XXXX and after getting it I realised I was now qualified for this challenge. It was really quite interesting selecting which caches to put in the list - a real trip down memory lane.

We decided to do this one today (along with Challenge #8 which we'd also qualified for). It was a very soggy walk across the field in the rain this afternoon to get to the cache. We were amazed how much water there was: the stile has a small stream running under it now and all of the water seemed to be flowing out from a hole in the roots of the tree. It took a bit of climbing around to find it but we finally found the cache.

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.
