Found it The Bolas Heathens found Staffordshire Church Gems-St Editha Church Eaton

Monday, November 24, 2008West Midlands, United Kingdom

FTF @ 20:00

It's my birthday today and we were due round at the in-laws in Blymhill for a big birthday tea with the children. On the way I was thinking to myself that it would be nice to get a cache in on my birthday but that there were none anywhere near home to go and find .

I could not believe it when we'd just finished a HUGE meal and I had a quick check of my emails and spotted a new cache only a few miles from the in-laws house and (sort of) on the way home.

I got some directions off my father in law (as the PDA and GPS were both at home) and off I set. I soon arrived and parked by the church gates.

I set off, torch in one hand and iPhone in the other, running the new GC.com iPhone Geocaching application, I'm happy to say it works really well and lead me straight to the cache for an easy find. Great to get a FTF on my birthday too .

On my way back across the churchyard, I glanced at the iPhone and thought I was seeing double for a moment - there was another Church Gem on there! A quick check of the details and I realised it was at Forton, which really was on my way home. Fantastic!

TFTC!

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.
