[b]#3292 found @ 11:58:00, cache 6 of 25 today.[/b]
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!
