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

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.
