Geocache Description:

This is an International Cache Exchange between LadyStevenson in Idaho, USA
and The Phillimore Clan in Oxford, UK.


                                                                   

This cache has come from Moscow, Idaho, USA and is owned by LadyStevenson and maintained by the Phillimore Clan. The contents of this cache are representative of LadyStevenson's home in the USA, please trade items from it with items that represent your home or the UK. The items traded into this cache will be sent to the USA to replenish it's sister cache, "Cor blimey it's a Limey cache".

To find out more about Geocaching in LadyStevenson's state Idaho please visit the Idaho Geocachers home on the internet.

This cache is placed at the start of a short trail down to some fishing ponds alongside the railway track. The trail beyond the cache can often be flooded in winter during heavy rainfall, so take care and wear wellies if exploring. There is a small amount of parking on the grass verge by the path entrance, do not leave car on road here as cars do come down this service road quite fast!

When you visit this cache, please have trade items that represent the region you are from or the UK. The reason this is asked is because the trade items will go to the sister cache in the USA (ICE ~ Ivy League, Oxford).

An International Cache Exchange is where two people from two different countries agree to exchange caches. Then, you maintain the cache in your country & the other person maintains the cache in their country. When supplies get low, you replenish your cache in the other country & your counterpart replenishes the cache in your country. The original cache exchange was between "Divine" in Finland and Canadazuuk in Canada.

This is the LINK for the forum thread on the International Cache Exchange. Here is a LINK for the Nordic thread in the forums. Finally, here is the LINK to an article in Today's Cacher written by Divine (about International Cache Exchanges).
 

Please ensure that this cache is well hidden as it is right next to a footpath and could be easily spotted if not hidden well, thanks.

As my employer has decided that it would be a good idea to move the whole organisation to Bristol, the Phillimore's (Mad H@ter and Muddy Legs) will be moving on to pastures new and some fresh caches. Unfortunately this will mean that it will become difficult for us to maintain our Oxfordshire caches, so we will therefore be gradually archiving the majority of them. We shall start our program of collecting the caches and archiving them in the new year, but as we have one or two caches out there this will not be a five minute program! If you would particularly like to find this cache before it is archived please get in touch and we will try and hold off archiving it.
