This cache is intended for responsible groups of adults only, in favourable conditions. Do not attempt it alone. It is strongly recommended that you avoid performing any of the stages of this cache when children are present as it might encourage them to copy your actions later and thereby endanger themselves and others. Special equipment is required. Please place your safety equipment foremost on your list.

We have not implemented maps outside of the U.S.A. ... YET!

It's Heaven and Hell, oh no!
Fool, fool!
You've got to bleed for the dancer!
Fool, fool!
Look for the answer!
Fool, fool, fool!

(Black Sabbath)

If you are old enough to recall Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath performing this song in your youth, you are of similar age to the cache owner, who is anything but an athlete. If you play this track in your car as you approach the cache location, I trust it will assist your mental preparation for the challenge ahead. AC/DC's "Highway to Hell" would be a similarly appropriate alternative.

This cache involves three stages, the first of which is at the published coordinates. Each stage leads to the next. The first two stages will require some preparation and varying equipment. Thus, an exploratory visit to each location, followed by a subsequent visit to complete the stage may entail four visits in total. The sites are however not widely dispersed so, depending on your time available after a completing a stage, you may combine it with your exploration of the next.

Our recommendation is that you tackle each stage either at dawn or preceding dusk, to minimise exposure to muggles. Either that, or have a cover story as part of your strategy!

This is foremost a strategy cache. Please bear in mind that your strategy, from the outset, must include replacement of each stage of the cache precisely as you found it. If you fail to replace any stage of the cache and need the owner's assistance, then your strategy has failed and you must log a "Did not find" for the cache and leave the unreplaced gamepiece adjacent to the cache box at Quelm Bridge cache (owner's "home" cache).

Note: Contrary to initial perceptions, we do not advocate climbing at the first waypoint. This is not necessary. Use your brain, not your brawn.

Waypoints are encoded. Letters need to be replaced with digits as follows:

Letters to Digits

Please make your log entries as detailed and entertaining as possible, but no spoilers and no photos of the game pieces or locations please. If there is demand for it, we will create a password protected web site for successful cachers, where each team can provide a full and detailed account of their exploits and strategies with photos. If any team replicates my technique precisely, I will admit it.


PS - Oh, before we forget. If you absolutely refuse to use the clues because you want to complete the challenge without them, FABULOUS, however, clues 1 and 2 relate to the respective stages, there is no clue for the final large ammo box.

Found on an EA GeoMob with teams Ursus Bear and Postie Grum, "on the way" to the associated TC, and what fun we had! Overall, this cache didn't provide us with quite so much enjoyment as the nearby Legend of the Lost Cachers, but certainly provided just as much frustration!

I think that Heaven has never been so clean, since our visit. Usually it is Rachael who is the CITO expert, but this time it was Mark who must have scraped Heaven moss-free. But not cache-free. It would appear that someone has managed to muggle Heaven! Surely only the Angel of Darkness....Satan himself could be responsible?

Luckily we have recourse to PAF, so thanks Roderick for providing us with directions to the road to Hell, which was conquered surprisingly quickly (so quickly in fact, that Mark managed to get only one leg of his flame-retardant, brimstone-resistant special equipment leggings on, before Rachael had plucked the cache from its sulphury sanctuary. (The smell of the sulpher lingered longer, despite the use of Heavenly baby wipes...)

So far, both Heaven and Hell had proved somewhat anti-climactic, but this is where the cache became interesting - and, for me, the most fun. Unfortunately this is the TC part of the cache, which means anyone searching only for the OC will miss it. If you are searching for this OC though, it is worth joining TC just for the TC addition to the cache! I LOVED the 6 Feet Under aspect of the cache. You could have made the whole cache just this one element, and I would have been more than happy!

After a little diversion to find those pesky Lost Cachers, we were back to Heaven and Hell, and off to find the TC key and OC - and bloody hell, I found the key! While others were following their magical pieces of technology, I was following the hint, and found the key surprisingly uncovered. I guess it can just sit there, because who is going to be in there apart from cachers? (After the OC/NC was found and the TC was unlocked, the key was replaced as it was found - suitably unhidden?)

Thanks Graham for finally finding the cache(s), as we were losing hope. TFTC Roderick! Another goodie!

A Very nice Joint First To Find

Thanks for the invitation asfastasfcuk & pleased that Mr. Dewdrop was able to join us on both evenings in the hunt with this cache, it was great fun and very entertaining at times, but we got there in the end chaps. I guess asfastasfcuk & thumpstar are now hard core cachers. Thanks Sandvika for a great cache. Another FTF on Navicache. Hippie!!
