Digest for May 2018


This month I completed my research into Oxford’s (former) zoo and I hid a series of geocaches to commemorate it and the wolves that escaped from it once, in the 1930s. I also toured a series of geocaches near Eynsham (listed below) while collecting ‘caching supplies from the military surplus store there.

I also shared (among other things) the story of the creation of a GIF file containing text showing the hex digest of its own MD5 hash, something which might initially appear to be impossible.

Dan Q couldn’t find GC5X8C6 Offey’s Adventure

This checkin to GC5X8C6 Offey's Adventure reflects a geocaching.com log entry. See more of Dan's cache logs.

Solving the mystery to determine the cache location was the easy (and fun) bit: geocheck confirmed first time! But after half an hour of digging through damp vegetation (and the ocassional nettle) this morning, I had to admit defeat. :-(
