Our previous caching excursion left us on 499 found caches. Just one more cache to get to the milestone of 500!
Where to go to make this cache special ?
We hunted around and found a cache called “Make this a Milestone” – set by a cacher to celebrate their 500th find. This seemed appropriate. The cache though was a puzzle cache so we had to solve the puzzle first!
The puzzle consisted of a photo of a milestone – all we had to do was find it – find a building near it, and then derive some co-ordinates based on the name of this building (A=1, B=2).
It is surprisingly easy to locate milestones from photographs as all you need to do is .. (ED: stop there !) and that is what we did.
The cache was a fairly large container and full of goodies – a great bit of detective work, for a great cache and a great way to celebrate 500 caches!
