When this cache showed off, I had a quick look at the puzzle and decided that there exist infinitely many solutions that all make sense from the mathematical point of view. So I waited for the first hint. Then I knew immediately about what the cache is about and also came along with a conjecture about its location.
Although the basic approach how to obtain the coordinates was clear to me, I
experienced some slight troubles due to two reasons. The first one (which I would have circumvented easily if I had been the only one) was due to the fact that I used a different interpretation of a certain notion. The second one was due to the fact that in my opinion the cache hider is not using the right value for h and that the geocacher checks for the exact coordinates.
Today I visited the cache location and did not even need to switch on my GPS-r. I had the right idea right away.
Like others I think that I will never need this stuff again, but on the other hand I did not need to invest much time as I could use some universal background knowledge.
The funny thing with this cache was that at the first moment when I only read the name of the cache, I thought that this would be a very special cache leading to a beautiful place as I interpreted the motto in a completely different way (namely with respect to geocaching - i.e. in the sense quality rather than quantity).

Finally. For me this cache was more or less a very annoying geochecker-powered guessing game. As it turned out at the end I was on the right way in the beginning but lost it at some point because I thought at that time that it would not make any sense. I tried to solve this cache in a lot more complicated ways than intended by the owner. Anyone here who needs some ...calculation software?? I'd have a few.
Anyway, today a small comment by another cacher made me reconsider this very first approach and suddenly I had some values that made sense. If I'd have continued this approach in the beginning..
As geochecker was happy as well I went to the coordinates - by bike, as usual, even though the area is not very bicycle-friendly. Found the cache within seconds; it was pretty close to the location that I had in mind when the cache was published.
Contrary to some other cachers I'm quite sure that I will never ever need this knowledge again - except, maybe, for some other cache.
All in all this cache quickly becomes an annoying guessing game if one isn't really on the right track.
