Found it colincactus found 12 Seconds of Caching Challenge

Thursday, November 14, 2013Southern England, United Kingdom

I travelled down to the Portsmouth area today to pick up some solved puzzles and challenges. I had been planning to do this one last month but we ran out of time and never even managed to get onto the Island.

I've found dozens of caches within the 12 second time limit. However for the purposes of this challenge I'll choose Basingstoke Canal - Mytchett Lake Revisited which was probably my fastest - see my log of 27 July 2010. I had guessed where the cache would be hidden from 100 metres away, and I was racing for the FTF.

This cache was done at a much more civilised pace however. A good long walk along the coastal path followed by an easy find.

I took a photo of myself gurning (I believe they are known as selfies nowadays). Apologies for the stubble - I'm growing a beard for Movember but my wife thinks I look like an escaped convict.

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.
