If you’re new to geocaching, it is a treasure hunt style of game where participants use a GPS to hide and find caches. Caches are waterproofed boxes that contain trinkets and a logbook. Visitors are invited to record when you were there and to take one of the trinkets. For a more detailed explanation, here is a good page on what is Geocaching in Southern Ontario all about.
For our first time Adventures, here is how you decode the encrypted Geocache clues.
A B C D E F G H I J K L M
N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
How TO Click (expandable bracket)
The trick to decoding is to divide the alphabet in half and exchange letters based on the encrypted clues given. Example:
T can be exchanged for the letter above, which is G
B can be exchanged for the letter below, which is O
When you completely decode the clue, it will provide specific information on the location of the Geocache.
TBBQ YHPX = GOOD LUCK
If you have any questions about our geocache locations please email or call 800-268-3838.
GPS devices are available at all Bruce County Library Branches (18 GPS devices total). They can be borrowed with a library card (you can attain a library card with proof of temporary address in Bruce County and proof of permanent ‘home’ address).
Enjoy the treasure hunt with the Adventure Passport!
