Talk about serendipity! For the last fourteen months I have been working towards qualifying for "Two a Day Challenge" - just two days to go. I'd also made notes of dates for which I had just two finds with a view to improving this, where possible. Today was such a day and I had been wondering whether to bother when this popped up - decision made!

Thought about walking but decided I could save a few minutes by driving. My local knowledge was revealed to be out of date as some double yellow lines had appeared! No matter, local knowledge knows there is a dirt lay by just round the corner on the A24 and that will do just as well. That left a pleasant quarter mile walk to GZ on a familiar path.

This is where the trouble started. The GPS led me to spot far from any hint item but I refused to let me bother me unduly and start a rapid but, I hoped, thorough search of all the nearby candidates. Nothing! Start searching further afield. Still nothing. I wonder if a pair of digits have been transposed and walk to a spot that matches the description and has a magnificent hint item but no cache.

Back to GZ and look around. Now did I search that tree right over there? It would seem not as I finally have the cache container to hand. Yep, it is a blank log. GPS is reading about 20 yards away so I have taken an averaged reading which I have given above.


infoThis is the original cache type consisting, at a bare minimum, a container and a log book. Normally you'll find a tupperware container, ammo box, or bucket filled with goodies, or smaller container ("micro cache") too small to contain items except for a log book. The coordinates listed on the traditional cache page is the exact location for the cache.
