This is our first attempt at a Wherigo cache and only the second such cache on the Isle of Man. It was built using the Earwigo Web-based builder. We hope to bring new interest to Wherigo caches as there are now 'Players' for many new Smartphones including iPhone and Android. It should also work on the Garmin (Colorado & Oregon). ** Download the PocketPC cartridge for non-Garmin equipment **

About This Cartridge

This takes you on a tour of Castletown in the Isle of Man and introduces you to some lesser know places in this ancient town.

As you proceed on your tour you will see some interesting places and be asked questions about them. Each correct answer will 'unlock' your next location.

There are 7 stages including the final destination where the cache is hidden. All the stages can be reached on level paths although the final has a short grassy bank to climb to the cache. Please take care crossing the roads in the town.

Your tour shouldn't take more than an hour to complete, depending how long you spend at each stage.

Take a look at the cache page on geocaching.com (visit link)

 

Starting Location

Old House of Keys, Castletown, Isle of Man.

This weekend we visited the Isle of Man arriving on the morning flight from Liverpool. After only 20 min. we could pickup our car and started to explore this [self-governing British Crown dependency in the Irish Sea between Great Britain and Ireland] (]visit link)
We started our last day on this island in Port Erin where we had our seaside view rooms just at the front and - as we had an early check out - we made a morning walk on the beach where two women even went swimming today.
We left this idyllic little seaside town and headed down south to the sound towards the Calf of Man. From there we made a visit to the former capital and played the wherigo which brought us to many places around the castle and took us far from the parking. The cartridge ran smooth and without problems.
The final box could be found easily thanks to the hint .

Thank you for this cache and greetings from Switzerland !

Ich finde Wherigo-Caches immer sehr interessant. Da ich selber auch schon einige programmiert habe, weiß ich die Arbeit, die dahinter steckt, umso mehr zu schätzen.

A good walk round Castletown and great for someone visiting. No problems with the cartridge, just disappointed with the cache at the end.

Thank you for providing the unlock code, as the Android player's saved file isn't compatible with this site!
