Geocache Description:


About this series:

This series of caches is based upon the life and work of dairy farmers Mark & Pen DeLogg on the Lincolnshire Fens. As well clues to solving the puzzle on each cache page will be a fact about cows and their behaviour, as well as information about particular breeds of cattle around the British Isles and the world.

  • The cache is not hidden at the published coordinates.
  • Steep drops and water may be encounted at some GZs, keep the little ones safe.
  • No animals were encountered when the caches were placed.
  • The cache size was made as large as possible according to the hiding place, varying from magnetic nanos to regular size boxes
  • You may need to provide your own TOTT i.e tweezers
  • Please park sensibly, safely, and considerably.
  • The D/T ratings concern the difficulty to both the puzzle and hides.

About Highland Cattle:Highland
Highland cattle are a Scottish cattle breed. They have long horns and long wavy coats that are coloured black, brindle, red, yellow, white, silver (looks white but with a black nose) or dun, and they are raised primarily for their meat. They originated in the Highlands and Western Isles of Scotland and were first mentioned in the 6th century AD.
They are a hardy breed due to their native environment, the Highlands of Scotland. This results in long hair, giving the breed its ability to overwinter.
Their milk generally has a very high butterfat content, and their meat, regarded as of the highest quality, is gaining mainstream acceptance as it is low in cholesterol.
It is estimated that there are now around 15,000 Highland cattle in the United Kingdom.

 

Now for the puzzle:

After a morning's work there was nothing Mark loved more than a cooked breakfast. His wife, Pen DeLogg was an excellent cook, it was one of the reasons he married her. She was a farmer’s daughter which gave her a good grounding in the art of cookery.

They first met whilst they were both members of the local Young Farmers club, said to be the best dating agency for rural teenagers.

Pen learned her art of cooking from her mother Francis, who speciality was a Bacon sandwich which called a ‘young farmers wrap’ which was her secret code because she said a sandwich was something you had cold.

Mark could eat these wraps till they came out of his ears, or as Mark's favourite playwright Shakespeare used to say, “ A wrap, a wrap, my kingdom, for a wrap”.

Logging Etiquette: Geocache hiders sometimes go through a great deal of planning to place their caches. As a result, they'd like to hear your feedback on whether you liked or disliked any aspect of the hide, the journey or location, or if you feel that some cache maintenance is required. Single word, acronym, or "copy and paste" logs may be easier when you have a lot of caches to log, but it doesn't tell the hider or other finders anything about your adventure (or lack thereof) in finding the cache. Please keep this in mind when entering your log.

Travelbug Etiquette: Cachers pay good money for TravelBugs and Geocoins. Please if you take a TB or GC from a cache will you ensure it is correctly logged in and out, also If you take one that still shows somewhere else please be patient before “grabbing” the item, it does not get its mileage by being grabbed and the last person to place may not have had time to log a previous find or the one you took it from. This is particularly important on busy and new caches. If you have an issue with a bug please e-mail the owner through their profile and advise them of the issue. They will be pleased to hear from you.
