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:

Aberdeen Angus cattle are naturally polled (No Horns).

Aberdeen AngusAberdeen Angus
Aberdeen Angus cattle have been recorded in Scotland since at least the 16th century in the country's North East. For some time before the 1800s, the hornless cattle in Aberdeenshire and Angus were called Angus doddies. The cattle became commonplace throughout the British Isles in the middle of the 20th century.
Angus cattle are naturally polled and solid black or red although the udder may be white. The native colour is black, but more recently red colours have emerged. In 2014, the British Cattle Movement Service named Angus the UK's most popular native beef breed, and the second most popular beef breed overall.
The main use of Angus cattle is for beef production and consumption. The beef can be marketed as superior due to its marbled appearance. This has led to many markets, including Australia, Japan and the UK to adopt it into the mainstream.

 

Now for the puzzle:

Mark DeLogg was driving home late one night; it was a terrible ugly dark night with rain beating down on the windshield. His car radio was tuned into Classic FM.

Playing on the radio was a tune that took him back to his childhood days.

It was Dvoraks New World Symphony No 9. Mark remembered the tune from when it used to advertise Hovis bread, when the young boy was pushing his bike up the steep hill.

His mind started to wander to when he was a young boy when he was clearing his Grandfathers attic out and the same tune was playing on the Bakelite radio.

It was in that attic that he found that funny looking keyboard of his Grandfather's. He hadn’t seen one like it and hasn’t seen one since. Suddenly the rain and the dark night didn’t seem quite so depressing.

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.
