Got the notification sometime after lunch and quickly realised that the stage 1 co-ords were just 4 minutes walk from home and 5 minutes walk from where I'm sitting! That's like a red rag to a bull, it has to be done. The only question is when. Well, with TJ out of the running that obviates the need to do it in the next 10 or 15 minutes to be in with a chance of the FTF. Unfortunately I have to earn a living so I compromise on leaving an hour early (an hour that will need to be worked later in the week).
A little after 3:00pm I'm off home which takes me just under 8 minutes. Grab my gear and back out. Now here local knowledge is definitely an advantage as I know just where I'm going and that it's definitely accesssible to the public. At stage 1 what is required becomes apparent very quickly and gives me the final co-ords.
Local knowledge again very helpful as I have no hesitation about how to get to the final location and indeed have a glimmering of where it's going to be. A few minutes later I'm at GZ admiring the view, which I've seen before though not for a long time. Time to count and search. Easy peasey (unlike some) and a virgin log book is duly despoiled at 15:43.
Great little cache.
