Joint {*FTF*} at 8:50pm with Mashworth

I checked my emails after my daughter had finished her homework and saw that this puzzle had been published 25 minutes earlier. It didn't take long to get some likely-looking numbers out.

It was 8pm by then and the co-ordinates were only a couple of miles from home. Bobcat was keen to try for it tonight although I wasn't that confident without a checker (as we couldn't see a footpath on our maps).

We tried one road but it seemed to be private property, so went back to try another and there met Mashworth. Good to meet you again! We confirmed that we both had the same answers and decided on a joint attempt. But two other possible paths also proved to be wrong.

Mashworth then had a call from DarenCollins who'd confirmed our co-ordinates with the CO and told us that our initial road was right. We'd missed the trailhead in the dark. So we returned and this time found it. It was a bit tricky in the dark but the cache itself was an easy find.

We held our breath as Mashworth opened it up and were relieved after our adventures to still be first. A double celebration in fact as this qualifies as Mashworth's January QTF.

infoA Mystery Cache is the “catch-all” of cache types, this form of cache can involve complicated puzzles you will first need to solve to determine the coordinates. The only commonality of this cache type is that the coordinates listed are not of the actual cache location but a general reference point, such as a nearby parking location. Due to the increasing creativity of geocaching this becomes the staging ground for new and unique challenges.
