Found it colincactus found 2.5 Terrain Challenge

Tuesday, September 8, 2015South East England, United Kingdom

I picked up the first few from this series on the day they were published - way back in 2011. Since then I've been gradually knocking off D/T squares and completing the Terrain columns. I've still not completed the whole set, but for some weeks now I've been planning to take a lunchtime walk to collect the ones I have.

The miserable weather of the past month had been stymieing these plans up to now, but today it was dry so I set off. GPSr, printouts, I thought I'd remembered everything but after ten minutes I realised that I didn't have a pen with me. If I returned to the office to get one I wouldn't have time for the round trip to the caches, so I pressed on.

After another hundred yards or so I stopped, and inwardly chastised myself for that daft decision. I was in the middle of nowhere. Was I planning to borrow one from a passing muggle? Could I be meaning to fashion one from a burnt stick? Or maybe I was hoping to meet the famous North Downs Way pen salesman? No! I turned to go back and it was then that I spotted the pen in the hedgerow. I tried writing with it and it worked perfectly. What was the chance of that!!

I continued on to the GZ. The GPS signal was bad under the trees: 25 metres this way 30 metres that and so on. I ignored it and just used the map, finding the cache in the third place I tried.

I'm attaching a screenshot of my stats to show that I am qualified.

Colincactus - 2.5 Terrain Challenge

infoA Mystery Cache is the “catch-all” of cache types, this form of cache can involve complicated puzzles you will first need to solve to determine the coordinates. The only commonality of this cache type is that the coordinates listed are not of the actual cache location but a general reference point, such as a nearby parking location. Due to the increasing creativity of geocaching this becomes the staging ground for new and unique challenges.
