Attempted this whilst doing the GMT series, having initially not cottoned on to the virtual element, enlightened by owner we had another go the following day only for the cartridge to crash just as we were making progress - we didn't have the heart or the time to start again so reluctantly left with this unfinished but the upside we made plans to return to this great place. Five weeks later and we return as planned, cartridge loaded on GPS and iPad for a bit of backup. Proceeded through the early stages with both devices but went with the iPad when the GPS hadn't picked up the first key. What fun once you get into the plot! We were soon past the point we reached last time feeling somewhat warm from the exertion and now we were into unknown territory. A few more "terrors" encountered but cooly coped with the problems and there finally was the treasure! A magnificent hoard I must say - well pleased with our success and a perfect finish to the caching part of our weekend. Thanks for entertainment which complemented the GMT series. TFTW

Our first Wherigo experience so very much trial and error. We spent quite a long time looking for a real cave initially :-)
Once we got the hang of it we managed to work through the foibles of gps under the trees, and the eventual opening of the treasure chest was well worth the "adventure".
Thanks for a great intro to Wherigo.

WOW What a great wherigo. We had great fun doing this one, a really nice twist having to find real life objects to play in the game. The story was fun and the final location was excellent. We have played many wherigo games now and this is way up on my favorite list. Highly recommend this to everyone.
Many thanks for your hard work in setting this up for us to enjoy

This cache was the first Wherigo I have ever attempted, found on Tuesday with my wife, my son and daughter, and my mum and dad (visiting from New Zealand). It was one of the favourite caches of the day for everyone (apart maybe from Toby, at one too young to really know what the heck was going on), and most definitely my favourite cache of the day.
I suspect it took us just short of an hour to complete, and must have taken ages to plot and plan! The confluence of virtual world and real world was as perfect as must ever be possible.
At the end of much wandering around virtual caverns and tunnels, speaking to goblins and wizards, pacifying serpents, running full tilt from bloodthirsty flying creatures, we finally reached the jewelled chamber where the Lost Treasure was guarded by a dragon.
The actual (real world) cache was amazing also. This in itself was awesome, and would have been an awesome traditional cache - let alone a simple multi, or convoluted Wherigo! Ruby especially loved opening the chest, and sifting through the treasures.
Thanks for my favourite cache of the day, and one of my favourite caches ever. Though it was my first Wherigo, I am now a little scared of trying another, as any Wherigo I attempt now has an awful lot to live up to! As usual, an UrsusBear cache is an incredible experience - thanks very much!

Our first ever whereigo, out today with Aquachippy, took about 3/4 hr to complete with a lot of to-ing and fro-ing, I really enjoyed it but I was the one with the cartridge, for the others it was a bit frustrating but they enjoyed it none the less. Thanks for the cartridge
