I'd promised my son Bobcat that we'd do some long distance caching trips after he'd finished his exams. We'd had one day near Aylesbury a couple of weeks back and today we decided to pick up some puzzles. We picked the East Sussex area as I had a big pile of solved puzzles from there but we hadn't yet visited to pick them up (and last night I'd discovered that twelve of them had since been archived).
This cache was one of our priorities for today. Its a lovely little puzzle - and because of my background I managed to solve it in one sitting. That was way back in 2010 only six months after it was published and if I'd dashed down I could've been 4th to find. Looking back at the cache page now I saw that nobody had found it for the past 18 months, and so if we found it today we'd be 10th.
As we don't know the area it was quite tricky to find somewhere to park, but Bobcat excelled himself here and found the perfect spot. It was a sunny day today, we had a lovely walk to the cache with some great views.
We arrived at the GZ. Bobcat was immediately off searching. What's the hint? he shouted from the undergrowth. I looked at the cache page - nothing. My heart sank a little, but then I spotted the cache size, and found it in a trice.
