Found it colincactus found 10 years and counting Challenge

Sunday, March 24, 2013South East England, United Kingdom

I qualified for this challenge on 6th January 2013 by finding SP1 (GC30B8) and SP2 (GC30E3). Both of these were 11 years and 4 days old on that day, and according to the chart needed to be at least 10 years and 9 months then. See my website for more details.

We came on to this cache after finding the 365 challenge. The paths were a lot muddier here on the northern part the common, and I was feeling a bit sorry for Bobcat as he'd arranged to meet a friend in London this afternoon. Luckily we were both wearing big boots so we decided to continue on. It was still squelchy but the going got easier as we approached the GZ.

I read out the hint, Bobcat spotted the likely hiding place, and I extracted the cache. A good bit of teamwork. We took the poker chip and left a path tag.

We made our way back along the soggy track, came to a bit of a clearing and spotted five deer in the trees just ahead. We waited a minute or so and then they noticed us and bounced off.

Edit 1/4/2013: Bobcat told told me he'd left a path tag here but it seems that it was actually the Northern Ireland 2008 geocoin.

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.
