FTF at 7:50am
I saw this had been published at the start of the week, and although its 100km away from home I thought I'd give it a go on the train home from work. That evening I got an answer and put it on the pile of solved puzzles.
My son, The Bobcat, looked on despairingly as this pile never seems to get smaller no matter how many we pick up. However this time I promised him if nobody had found it by Saturday we'd try for the FTF and get a whole bunch of other Kent puzzles too.
A day or so later I happened to be talking to somebody. Neither of us realised that the other was a Geocacher, but we got talking about it and found that we both were.
After a while I asked "So what's your Geocaching name?", Oh we're "The Gaggle" came the reply. You're not Mrs Gaggle are you? - I've just done your puzzle!!
I watched each evening but nobody had logged it. Then on Friday evening I saw that a Geochecker had been added. I checked it and saw that by then it had had 11 visits, 1 success and 1 failure. We could see we had a rival for our FTF race, but decided to still go for it.
We got up at 6am and set off. It was an uneventful journey and an easy find. We liked the hide. I hope it survives as we nearly got muggled putting it back.
