A virtual cache that can only be "bagged" by visiting the prime meridian.


The quintuple referred to are the minutes of the latitude where it crosses the prime meridian. Obviously the longitude will all be zeros.

To log your visit find the spot where the minutes digits are all the same (and longitude is zero) and take a picture of your GPS and post it here.

This example is in Hertfordshire, England and is rather nice as it has only two non-zero digits
N 52 00.000 E/W 00 00.000. As far as I can tell there are only two other such locations in England.

Other valid (but less notable) locations would be something like N 51 55.555 E/W 00 00.000 which is not far away and can be seen on the web site mentioned below.

As well as the picture of the GPS please feel free to post other pictures showing the general location.

Only one "Found" log per person is allowed but you can "note" other locations visited.

You should note that this cache can only be "visited if you are in England, France, Spain, Algeria, Mali, Burkina Faso, Togo, Ghana, Antarctica or on a ship and on the Arctic ice shelf!

The inspiration for this cache was Web-ling's original [Quintuple cache].

Many thanks to him for a great idea.

Mrs DufusDog has still not forgiven me for dragging her through a hedge backwards to get to the position to get this one. It is in the middle of a small shrub on Comberton Golf Club just outside Cambridge.

Just updating the logs from previous finds.

I'm not sure if your going to allow this one. I got as close as I could without trashing the farmers potatoes.

This is one of only three in the UK 51, 52, 53. with all the rest at 0. I would like to claim N53 00.000 E/W 0 00.000

As you can see from the image, I was 109 feet off. Much as I'd loved to get bang on I don't want to give rise to any negative press either.
