Geocaching/TrigPointing

Postby SBs » Tue Feb 06, 2018 11:40 am

Dear All,
Is there any trigpoint significance in the following letters:
B C D F H J K M N
They have appeared in a geocaching puzzle concerning (I think!) trigpointing
Kind regards
SBs

Can't help you with that sorry SBs, I'm sure someone will be along who may be able to though.

Thanks for your help. The geocache has been set by a Trigpointer, a member of TrigpointingUK, Dave Johnson. There's a pic of the OS TP symbol, which is why I think it could be a Trigpoint puzzle.

The geocache is https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC7 ... a151f8a61f

B C D F H J K M N


The lack of vowels in that sequence suggests a word puzzle.
The missing letters are: A E G I L and possibly O

https://www.thewordfinder.com/anagram-solver/
gives 'agile' as the only word using the first 5 letters or
'goalie' using the 6th. I can't think of a trig connection but do these
words have any particular geocaching signficance?

From some of what I've read here you have to be fairly agile to get to some of the points.

I can't make any sense of it I'm afraid. The letters themselves have no obvious significance within an OS context, and the map tells me nothing either. I'll put it on my watch list in case of sudden illumination.

Thanks agentmancuso,
I'm still baffled, but convinced there's a trigpoint connection somewhere.

I asked one of our local puzzle cachers and they are baffled as well. They did point me in the direction of this trig related cache though.

it seems I went very close without realising when I visited the nearby pillar.

I see you've solved it; well done. Was it anything to do with trigging after all?
