Geocache Name:

Rubik’s Cache (GC5YGFM)

Difficulty/Terrain Rating:

5/2

Why this is the Geocache of the Week:

You can now earn your Let’s Get Extreme Geocaching Road Trip ’15 souvenir by finding a D5 or a T5 geocache. For this one, some geocachers automatically think of rock climbing, rappelling or some other adrenaline-inducing geocache as their go-to for this souvenir. But don’t forget the mind-bending puzzles that can also earn you this souvenir. For this geocache, you’ll not only have to answer a few questions to get the coordinates, you’ll also have to solve a Rubik’s Cube once you get there. Good luck!

What geocachers have to say:

“Thrilled to get the souvenir and be there at bb’s mega number, but most of all it was a splendid cunning cache and and a pleasure to do, thanks.” – Wibsey Wench

“Thank you for such a brilliant puzzle and for making my special number such a memorable find.” – badgerbaby

“Well deserving of a favourite point for not only did I solve a difficulty 5 for the Road Trip 15 but the whole thing took place on a day not filled in on my caching calendar. TFTC.” – Andicap

What the geocache owner, darkskill, has to say:

What inspired this hide?
I’d purchased the treasure chest Rubik’s cube for my collection and noticed how nicely a bison Geocache container fitted inside! Thought this would be a great idea for a difficult puzzle cache and a few days later had the cache ready to go.

Did you know how to solve a Rubik’s Cube before working on this geocache?
Yes I did, I’ve got quite a large collection of twisty puzzles and enjoy speed solving some of them.

What has been your reaction to all of the positive logs and Favorite Points?
It’s nice to see this Geocache has introduced some of the cachers to the Rubik’s cube and encouraged some of them to learn how to solve it for the first time! It’s always nice to read through the positive logs and know that other people have enjoyed my cache.
