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.

Cow Fact:

The average sleep time of a domestic cow is about four hours a day.

Gloucester CattleGloucester
Gloucester cattle are a breed of dairy and beef cattle originating from Gloucestershire and surrounding areas in the West Country of England.
They are large cattle, coloured a rich dark brown in the cows, calves and steers, and almost black in the bulls. They have a white belly and a white finching stripe along the spine and continuing over the tail, and they normally have well-developed white horns with black tips.
The milk of Gloucesters is well-suited to cheese-making, being high in protein and with high butterfat, in particularly small globules. Single Gloucester and Stinking Bishop cheeses are made exclusively from Gloucester cattle milk. Double Gloucester cheese may now be made from the milk of any cattle, although it was traditionally made from that of Gloucesters.

 

Now for the puzzle:

It was Mark Delogg's turn to do the mornings milkng. Mark enjoyed milking but was terrible at getting up early.

Normally he relied on the family dog to come jumping onto the bed to get him up, but this morning he would have to set his alarm for 4.00am.

Unfortunately the electric supply to his house was interrupted during the night and so the digital alarm clock did not work and Mark was late for the early milking.

All his cows were patiently waiting for him at the gate looking pretty much disgusted with him.

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.
