Found it colincactus found CSB 57 76

Saturday, September 11, 2010South East England, United Kingdom

{*FTF*} at 1pm

I enjoyed this one: it was very difficult. It needed two unconnected pieces of knowledge - and both of these I had only learnt of in the past month. After solving it I was then unsure about whether I should pick it up as I live over sixty miles away (the other side of Guildford).

It was still unfound by the end of the week so we decided to go off to get it today. To make the journey worthwhile I spent Friday evening solving some other puzzles. There were two still-unfound puzzles in Tonbridge (one rated 5/1) and then suddenly at midnight a new Sudoku puzzle (rated 5/2) appeared in Redhill. These were perfect as they were right on the route I had been planning to take.

We set off just after 8am and got the FTF in Redhill at 9. Then on to Tonbridge. Soon after we'd rejoined the M25 we saw with dismay that the other carriage-way was at a standstill. We certainly wouldn't be coming back that way.

We parked up in Tonbridge at 10:15. It turned out that one of the puzzles we'd been planning to get had been found by somebody late last night, but fortunately for us the other, more difficult one, hadn't. So we got our second FTF of the day. There was still some time left on the parking ticket so we grabbed a couple of other puzzles nearby (and then a couple of sandwiches from Greggs)

After we'd eaten it was time for our main objective of the day - this cache. It was a nice walk to the GZ and it was a very interesting area. We spent some time looking around as we were a little unsure where we should be searching. Often in the past we have ignored the GPS and just looked in likely places but this time the co-ordinates were bang-on.

A good puzzle. I found it harder than the two other FTFs that we got today - and they were both rated difficulty 5 (although the Tonbridge one was definitely rated too high in my opinion).

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.
