Description    Deutsch  ·  English

After having found the cache "Vollschluck" in Giessen, I decided to hide a cache of my own. It seems that I did not get along too well with the "Vollschluck" and still felt a little bit dizzy.

As a consequence thereof, I have mixed up which of the seven questions listed below corresponds to which of the seven locations listed below. You can park your car at the starting coordinates.

At the seven locations you will collect in total eight single-digit numbers, one two-digit number and one three-digit number.

N50 36.210 E8 38.146
N50 36.088 E8 37.930
N50 36.248 E8 38.265
approx. 275m away from the pylon in the direction approx. 70°
N50 36.171 E8 38.069
directly aside
N50 36.246 E8 38.277

These are the seven questions:

What is the distance from here?
How many nuts can be seen up on the roof?
How many letters has the word which is written on the small, white cube-shaped stone?
Which digits can be found on the milestone?
How many large boulders are lying around?
This house number consists of two digits, a two and which other digit? (Only the latter one is required for this cache.)
Which letters can be found on the large aerosol can?
(20.Dec.05: The letters are gone! They were DBS)
Transform the letters into digits by using the keypad of your mobile phone.


Now you need to perform several computations.

Determine the product of all collected numbers. This yields a quite big number. Let XYZ denote the three leftmost digits of the number.
To obtain ABC subtract XYZ from 225.

Determine the sum of all collected numbers, multiply the result by 4 and subtract 28. The final result will be the number DEF.


The final cache is located at the coordinates
N 50° 36.ABC E 8° 37.DEF


Useful for this cache: sturdy shoes, mobile phone, pocket calculator (simple one suffices)

Total walking distance: About 3 kilometers. The terrain rating 2* applies only if you choose your route carefully!

Not found 09 April 2007 Vetzberger did not find the geoacache

Dieser Cache hat uns viel Spaß gemacht, auch wenn der Weg stark zugewachsen ist und die Natur langsam aber sicher ihr Recht einfordert. Fast drei Jahre nach der Verlegung des Caches muß man sich durch Dornen und Gestrüpp kämpfen und über Bäume klettern, die einer der letzten Stürme umgelegt hat. Die Fragen mußten den Stationen zugeordnet werden. Es war nicht immer leicht, aber wir kämpften uns voran. Die Frage nach dem Dach mit den Muttern konnten wir nicht mit Sicherheit lösen. Da waren wir total unsicherund probierten zwei der uns wahrscheinlich erscheinenden Antworten als Lösungen aus, um die Finalkoordinaten zu ermitteln. Leider hatten wir keinen Erfolg. Wie wir soeben lesen konnten, wurde dieser Cache genau am heutigen Tag stillgelegt. Dabei hatten wir extra heute morgen noch mal nachgesehen. Aber wie gesagt: Wir hatten viel Spaß, auch wenn wir letztlich keinen Erfolg hatten.

Viele Grüße vom
Team der Vetzberger

Found 13 April 2006 rembrandt95 found the geocache

Wir sind jetzt richtig stolz auf uns, daß wir diesen Cache auf Anhieb gelöst haben. 2 Stunden haben wir gebraucht und dabei insgesamt 5 km zurückgelegt, weil wir mehrmals hin und her gelaufen sind. Bei manchen Fragen kann man über die Interpretation streiten, aber am Ende hat dann alles gepasst und das Versteck hat dann Robin auf Anhieb gefunden. Vielen Dank für die schöne Aufgabe.

Found Recommended 29 January 2005 safri found the geocache

Das war wieder ein genialer Cache nach meinem Geschmack (und nach Nalas natürlich auch!). Die Zuordnung der Fragen zu den Stages machte die ganze Sache ein wenig reizvoller als gewöhnlich.
Ein schönes Naherholungsgebiet, das ich nie an dieser Stelle erwartet hätte, tolle Ausblicke, Sonne und ein bißchen Schnee: rundum gelungen, vielen Dank an Alice!
Das Finalversteck fiel mir sofort ins Auge und ist trotzdem absolut muggelsicher.

Found 03 January 2005 cezanne found the geocache

This cache is a typical example for a cache which I enjoyed enormously as multi cache, but which I would not have liked as a traditional cache.

It was a big fun hunting for all the required pieces of information, never knowing where exactly which item has to be looked for. I prefer such creative tasks to having to find tons of small film canisters. It is, however, not at all easy to find a sufficient number suitable tasks - Alice has done a wonderful job!

I particularly liked the area around the third waypoint. Some of the information I found very quickly, for some answers I had to look more closely, in particular I needed two attempts to find the small white stone cube.

I agree with the cache description that the terrain is only appropriately rated by 2* if special care is devoted to the route choice. If one wishes to take rather direct routes, good shoes are recommended. Moreover, it might be a good idea to come with clothes that can get dirty.

When I saw the description of the calculations to be made, I was anxious that I would need to undertake tedious calculations - I did not have any caculator with me, as usual. Fortunately, it turned out that all required calculations can be done in an elegant way which was Cezanne-friendly .

Once being in the right area, the final cache was easy to find. The cache box and its contents are in good condition. Rehiding the box was more tedious, but I hope that I did a sufficiently good job.

I have no idea how Alice manages to find so many interesting areas for caches. I find it hard to find even one such place. I cannot write more as I do not want to spoil the fun of future caches. Just come to see yourself. This multi cache does not involve long walking distances - and it also well-suited for being visited with children.

Thank you very much for yet another wonderful cache!

Found 18 December 2004 murmeltier found the geocache

found by a murmeltier!
Nachdem ich noch mal über alle Infos nachgegrübelt habe, und mit RoHu die letzten Unklarheiten besprochen hatte, gings heute ganz schnell. Bei diesem Grübelcache hat scheinbar jeder seine unklare Stelle.
Hat viel Spaß gemacht dies interessante Terrain zu untersuchen.
Danke dafür.
