No 1 – take one desperate daddy requiring a FTF
No 2 – Gain said daddy trunks!! And towel
No 3 – drive 2 hours with 3 noisy excited kids in car!!
No 4 – Deposit said daddy at geo cache parking location with swimming equipment and watch carefully from ones nice warm car?
No – What do you mean No!!
Said daddy cheated and left 1 unhappy mummy – well that sexy body shivering in trunks was something she had looked forward to for weeks!!
Also 3 unhappy geokids unable to laugh a said silly daddy who would do anything for a FTF – well wouldn’t you!!
So then to the cheats’ log:-
Well what can we say other than FTF! Mark had noticed that FTF’s take quite a long time up here so he had added this to the watch list. No find had come in before we left and so taking quite a long shot we set off from Fersit for the two hour drive to the geo cache site. All the time not knowing (or caring to be honest) if it had been claimed. With the diesel getting low we arrived on site. Now before we left Mark had described just where the geo cache was to an expectant family and so they had all voted that he would be the one to go out for the geo cache (traitorous lot my kids ill get them one day). On our arrival we found a suitably equipped local merchant and set off towards the island rather slowly as mark was at the helm.
A suitable anchorage was found and it was all out to search the island. The hiding spot needs no spoiler as there are only a few places that fit the hint. We opened the box and found the blank log book. With swaps and such done it was back to the boat but this time Lynn was in charge and we zoomed out across the loch leaving marks pace back in the starting blocks. Had a great hour on the row boat before heading away with a sense of satisfaction at having found our first island geo cache and as an added bonus we were FTF. Many thanks a most enjoyable trip out. That 9 hours from our house and several hundred miles just for a FTF we are mad or obsessed or both we don’t really care.
