It took a bit over a year for the first cache to be hidden in the Hawkesbury district. Just like this event it has taken a year to get here, due to COVID. It was hidden on the 25 May 2001 and it was archived on 10 February 2002. It was called A Wise Man's Folly it's code was GC78433. The multi started from near Mill Creek Campground. It seems to have been a truly nasty one, hidden by Rum N Coke and had a D/T rating of 5/4.5 In it's short existence it was found once by Tangles, who took 4 hours to find the cache and return, the poem on the cache page suggests the CO took 7 hours. Overall the cache had 5 DNFs. Some would say in the following 19 years we have only made our caches a little bit easier
For the event rather than going to Mill Creek in winter, the last time I went there it took me 30 minutes picking off the leaches only to find out when I got home I missed at least 2 in my socks. I thought it might be nicer at Tizzana's Winery
So the Event
Come out to mingle in the Hawkesbury, chat about caches, exchange and discover trackables, and generally network with like minded individuals and teams.
