GeoCaching - Ligeud, Grøndal no 1.

Op 'n sneeuerige dag het ek na die multi-cache Ligeud, Grøndal no 1. gaan soek. Ek kon al die leidrade vind, maar 'n klein foutjie wat ek gemaak het, het gemaak dat ek die cache nie die eerste keer kon kry nie. My tweede besoek aan die finale koördinaat het ook niks opgelewer nie en dis slegs nadat die cache-eienaar vir my 'n leidraad gegee het en ek weer gaan soek het, dat ek die cache kon vind. Deursettingsvermoë... Wat ek van hierdie cache sal onthou is dat ek net vroeër in die week 'n fliek oor Gandhi gekyk het, en kyk net by wie se standbeeld vat een van die leidrade jou verby!

Gebou
Kopenhagen, Denemarke (rondom 55° 41.813N 012° 31.517O)

Leidraad 1: "Across the start of the cache is a building raised by the city of Copenhagen. When was is raised ? call it 19AB."

Die gebou is gebou in 1931, dus

A = 3
B = 1

Gandhi
Plaat
Kopenhagen, Denemarke (55° 41.874N 012° 31.391O)

Leidraad 2: "Go to N 55.41.874 E 012.31.A9B What was the name of this politician ? Call him RSTUVX and replace the letters in his name by the number in the alphabet (A=1 etc)."

Die teks op die plaatjie is:

M K GANDHI - THE MAHATMA 1869-1948
GAVE FRA DEN INDISKE REGERING
UDFØRT AF SANKHO CHAUDURI
OPSTILLET AF KØBENHAVNS KOMMUNE 1985
Die naam van die politikus by 55° 41.874N 012° 31.391O is dus Gandhi.

Die letters van die alfabet word as volg genommer:

A  B  C  D  E  F  G  H  I  J  K  L  M  N
1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  10 11 12 13 14

dus het ons

R = G = 7
S = A = 1
T = N = 14
U = D = 4
V = H = 8
X = I = 9

en

Q = R - 1 = 7 - 1 = 6

Leidraad 3: "Go to N 55.41.VVQ E 012.31.AQQ where Q =R-1. Here is a sculpture. When is it erected ? call it 19YZ."

Die teks op die plaatjie is:

MAND OG PIGE
AF POVL SØNDERGAARD
1905 - 1986
OPSTILLET 1935
KØBENHAVNS KOMMUNE  KØBENHAVNS KULTURFOND

Die standbeeld by 55° 41.886N 012° 31.366O is dus opgerig in 1935, dus

Y = 3
Z = 5

en

P = S - 1 = 1 - 1 = 0

Leidraad 4: "Go to N 55.41.XVY E 012.31.PVP where P=S-1 Here is another sculpture, when is it erected ? call it 19KL."

Die teks op die standbeeld en plaatjie is:

UNDER
BESÆTTELSEN
DANMARK UNDER BESÆTTELSEN AF JOHANNES BJERG 1886 - 1955 OPSTILLET 1951 KØBENHAVNS KOMMUNE KØBENHAVNS KULTURFOND

Die standbeeld by 55° 41.983N 012° 31.080O is opgerig in 1951, dus

K = 5
L = 1

Finale koördinaat: The cache is hidden at N 55 41.abc E 012 31.def where a=X, b=V, c=L-1, d=P, e=K-1, f=R.

a = X = 9
b = V = 8
c = L - 1 = 1 - 1 = 0
d = P = 0
e = K - 1 = 5 - 1 = 4
f = R = 7

en dus is die finale koördinaat 55° 41.980N 012° 31.047O

Log-inskrywing op webwerf na eerste soektog:
It's a snowy day... but I did all the steps, however, I couldn't find the final cache. Back home, I realised where I've made my mistake and will go try again with the correct coordinates soon.

Log-inskrywing op webwerf na tweede soektog:
This time I'm sure I used the correct coordinates. GPSr accuracy wasn't very good, with an EPE of about 10 meters. I couldn't find the cache. I will send a message to the owner to check my final coordinates, perhaps I did make a mistake somewhere.

Log-inskrywing op webwerf na derde soektog:
I had some fun collecting the clues for this cache: A snow storm hit the area, almost soaking the paper I was writing on so that it would become useless. Nonetheless, I persisted. Once I've calculated the final coordinates, I went to that location, passing an open-air ice-skating rink. The area where the cache is hidden got some ice-skater muggles on their way to the rink and I must have looked strange just standing there in the snow next to my bike and then going to scrub under and in the bushes and trees! On my first visit I couldn't find it, neither on the second. An email to the owner helped, who suggest that I should look above the ground. This helped and on the third visit I found the cache. Nice hiding place. I hope the muggles who were watching their children were really watching only their children and didn't notice what I was doing.
