English description


This virtual cache has been designed as a kind of reward for the cachers who have succesfully completed my cache A Walk to the Past which requires quite some effort. The virtual cache and its non-virtual counterpart deal with the same background theme.

I hope that you will come across further interesting facts about the stages of the non-virtual cache while searching for the answers to the questions below as this is the main idea behind this virtual cache. I hope that you will appreciate the setting of this cache, even if you are, like myself, not a fan of virtual caches in general.



Important information: (Please read this part before you start your hunt!)
  • Before you can start with this cache, you need to have successfully completed the cache A Walk to the Past.
    In particular, you need to remember which places had to be visited for A Walk to the Past and you need the two numbers X and Y obtained at that cache.
  • This is a virtual cache, but you cannot do this cache without leaving your home! Since I do not own a digital camera, I designed the cache in a manner that it is also open to cachers who do not own such a camera either.
  • The starting coordinates given for this cache are again fictive ones and are of no significance.
  • In order to get permission for a found-log, you have to meet the following requirements:
    • Send me the answers to the 8 questions which are posed in Parts 1 and 2 below. (You can contact me via the e-mail service of geocaching.com. In case of technical problems, you might post a note to the cache page.)
    • Carry out the task described in Part 3 below.
    Any found-logs not meeting these requirements will be immediately deleted.
  • Please note that you are entitled for a found-log only after having got my permission by e-mail. This rule holds regardless of whether I reply quickly (should be the usual case) or whether you have to wait a few days.



Part 1:

The questions in Part 1 deal with Stage X of the cache A Walk to the Past and with the building that can be found there.

Question 1:
    Inside the building at Stage X a plaque commemorating two men has been installed in the last century. Let us call them Mr A and Mr B. What are their names?
Question 2:
    Mr A and Mr B were members of an organization to which the building at Stage X belonged in former times. What is the name of this organization? (The organization changed its name, but it will be sufficient for the sake of this cache if you come up with one of its names.)
Question 3:
  • G: The number of the district of Graz in which Stage X is located.
  • H: H=Y+G-5*X+6
    What happened to Mr A and Mr B in the year H?
Question 4:
    Who founded the organization referred to in Question 2 and in which year? Let us call the founder Mr C.
Question 5:
    Which were the two central topics in the work and life of Mr C which have remained to be significant and important until nowadays? (Another topic was important for Mr C and for other socially-engaged people of his time, but became somewhat out of fashion in later years.)



Part 2:

Calculate the iterated cross-foot of the number Y and call the result K.

The questions in Part 2 deal with Stage K of the cache A Walk to the Past and with the building that can be found there.

Question 6:
    In which year has the building referred to above been opened?
Question 7:
    Which event caused enormous damages to the precursor of the building? When did this event take place?
Question 8:
    Not many people protested against the event referred to in Question 7. Among those who did was a native Carinthian who worked as professor at the University of Graz. Let us call him Mr D. What is the name of Mr D and in which fields of study did he own a Ph.D. degree? (By the way, he was also very active in one of the areas which have been central in Mr C's life.)



Part 3:

  • L: The third digit of the number Y.
Rather close to the building at Stage L of the cache A Walk to the Past there exists another spot of interest which plays no role in that cache. Go to that spot. You will find a sign there informing the visitors about the place and about their expected behaviour.

Task 1:
    Send me the text written on the sign as well as the coordinates of the spot measured by your GPS.

Everything ok.

Alles in Ordnung.

Der Bonus war nach dem Walk to the Past natürlich Pflicht. Den Text, den man unbedingt vor Ort ermitteln muss, hat ptom ermittelt (DANKE!), der Rest war teilweise Gemeinschaftsarbeit.

Danke für die spannende Geschichtsstunde. Die schwierigen Fragen erforderten eine wirkliche Beschäftigung mit dem Thema. So soll's sein.

Nach dem Finden des Walk to the Past, waren die Aufgaben für den Bonus im Vergleich eigentlich einfach ;)

Da ich die Bonus-Beschreibung vorher nicht genau durchgelesen hab, musste ich noch einmal zur besagten Station gehen, um die Aufgabe 1 zu erledingen.

Aber das war heute recht angenehm, nach der Arbeit kurz bei dieser netten Location vorbeizuschaun.

Danke für die beiden Caches und die rasche Logfreigabe.

Nun bin ich endlich dazu gekommen, auch den Bonus zu lösen, den ich deutlich schwieriger fand, als den Basiscache. Bei der letzten Aufgabe war leider das Schild nicht mehr vor Ort, aber Cezanne hat mir da gottseidank ein Auge zugedrückt. [B)]

Yippie! Hab grad von cezanne eine Antwort bekommen, dass alle Fragen richtig beantwortet sind! [:)] Und somit logge ich meinen ersten virtuellen Cache. Virtuelle Caches habe ich bislang eher ignoriert. Dieser hier hat aber eine durchaus interessante Seite. Ich hab durch das Googlen, Wikipedln und Beantworten der Fragen einiges gelernt und wirklich interessante Sachen lesen können. War ansich gar nicht so schwer, alles zu finden, aber doch recht umfangreich.

Danke an cezanne für die nette Art eines virtuellen Caches!
