On Wednesday night I was solving a few puzzles in North Hampshire to pick up over the weekend and just as I was about to pack up noticed that these three puzzles had been published. So I had a quick look. I think I struck lucky with this one as the first thing I tried worked (well I mean it had the right checksum and appeared to be in a reasonable place).
I hadn't actually been planning to collect it for a while - I noticed that Mellers had FTFed #3 early in the morning and fully expected the others to be gone before I arrived home. Anyway Bobcat was working late in Guildford and I had to pick him up at 8pm. So by the time I'd done that and he'd had some food it was quarter to nine.
While he was eating I checked to confirm that nobody had logged a find (and also Googled to see how long the journey was and when sunset would be). We had a quick debate on whether to try for the FTF and decided that we would. No delays on the A3 and it was still fairly light when we arrived. As we approached I started to doubt that my co-ordinates were right but I found the cache in the first place I looked. Really pleased to be FTF - we don't get many of them nowadays.
