My Dad has been a gricer since he was a small boy, so I thought I would enlist his help to solve this one. I sent him an email with the aerial shot and he sent a reply muttering various awkward questions such as "was the mainline passenger or freight?". Argh! Anway, he said he would look at it in a few days. But you know how it is when you get a puzzle gnawing at you...

So I did a bit of research myself and came up with a not-so-long list of possible locations to check on Google earth. And, blow me, it didn't take long to figure out which one it was! Yay! Part 1 ticked off...

It looked like a foggy day for my armchair drive, but I just about gathered the required info from a couple of passes. And plugged the numbers in to get a very approapriate plot.

Today was another day for collecting some solved gillywig puzzles, and this was very much on the agenda. I parked up a little way off and walked to GZ, wondering what I would find. Trees! Lots of them, and chin-high nettles, mixed with a few brambles for good measure. I managed to beat a path to roughly the right place, and my eye caught something which I initially dismissed. The cache size was "not specified" - so was I looking for a nano-sized cache camo'd with ivy in an ivy-covered tree?!?

I poked around for a bit, beginning to despair. But then my GPS settled down again and was sending me back to the place I initially dismissed. Blundering over there once more, I rounded on a scene which could only make me smile. Of course it had to be there. Oh, man, I'm still grinning about it now. And also a lovely surprise to see the brilliantly-themed log.

A brilliant hide, I would give it 10 fave points if I could. Thanks for the fun!

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.
