Geocache Description:

A geocache originally placed by Ghost-train and adopted by me.

DIDO = Drive In Drive Out cache series DIDO (South) This idea for a cache was borrowed from the Aussies. The name stands for Drive In - Drive Out and as the name suggests, the caches are small (read micro), and easy to access. So it is really a drive by and helps add to your numbers if that’s what caching is to you. Often the area is a layby into or out of a town/city, or maybe an area of interest, such as a lookout. For this reason they are mostly high muggle areas, so some stealth is required. There are four caches roughly equating to the points of the compass giving you a trip around the lake. All are Eclipse tins.

Instructions: A park and grab. Parking is available alongside. This area is a former layby and the drive in - drive out lanes are still there. The area is a bit rough nowadays, so take care when entering and exiting - This is a busy section of road, and vehicles will be travelling at speed.

The Cache: A camouflaged cache that can be spotted if you know where to look. The cache is about 3-4 metres from the given coordinates - I was tempted to return the cache to its corner post, but saw a leafy option back along the little fenceline. The cache is not really big enough for anything other than the log, so you will need to bring your own pen/cil.
