Found it colincactus found The Devil's Own Challenge Cache!

Monday, September 12, 2016London, United Kingdom

I was caching with my son Bobcat today. We had walked up to Angel and had arrived around 1pm. Getting hungry so we decided to grab a quick sandwich at Pret before moving on to this one.

I qualified for this challenge back in March 2013 (fortunately I had found a Leap Day cache in 2012 so didn't have to wait for another four years). This can be seen from my profile but I'll attach a screenshot anyway.

The GPSr led us a merry dance here. It had us on the wrong side of the road to begin with. However nothing matched the hint over there so we moved over. I started looking in a couple of places but then Bobcat quickly found it.

Earlier in the day we'd been talking about needing a "code phrase" when we are searching in urban environments. "I've found it" is no good as that only draws attention, and something random like "banana" is even worse. We eventually came up with "my foot's started hurting again".

That was some time back and I wasn't expecting it so I was really concerned when Bobcat suddenly announced that his foot was hurting. We had a laugh about it afterwards - but it worked so well I think we'll keep it up.

Devil's Own Challenge - Colincactus

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.
