FTF!!!

Walked on to this one from the other nearby cache this morning but the GPS took me to the middle of a very slippy bank and a likely looking tree root. I could not find the cache so peeked at the hint. The closest hint item was 120 feet further up the bank.

I only had the co-ords and hint with me so did not have the advantage of the spoiler pics. After about an hour going up and down the extensive set of steps I gave up as I could not see a cache anywhere.

Later on, when I was back at home, I looked at the cache page again and spotted the spoiler and other photos. This all pointed to one exact spot so I could not resist the possibility of a FTF and dashed out again.

As I parked up at Benthall Hall I spotted Izzy & Paul's cache-mobile so knew they would be looking for it too (I'd met Paul earlier in the day at another cache and he knew I'd not found this one yet).

After what seemed like an eternity (was no more than 15 minutes) I arrived at a very quiet GZ and found the cache instantly where I was expecting it.

Just as I had put the cache back I spotted Izzy & Paul climbing up the steps to the cache. Nice to meet you both again! After they found the cache we all walked back to the cars, having a nice chat about caching along the way.

I had the cache about 120-130 feet off the co-ords so have posted my reading at GZ above.

TFTC John, Luz & Bryan!

Self portrait with the cache

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.
