We've been meaning to get this cache for a while now as it was placed in January 2003 and so would fill an empty slot in our Jasmer grid. Bobcat is back at school tomorrow so I'd booked a day off today so that we could go caching. This one was the main objective, but we'd also planned to get some puzzles I'd solved.
I'd heard about Kingley Vale from my sister (who introduced me to geocaching). I'd never been here though. It's very atmospheric, some lovely old yews and great views across the valley - I must come back again.
The cache was an easy find. Both of us saw the stickoflage at the same time, but Bobcat got to it first. So good to see an ammo can. We did a few swaps - Bobcat took the toy car and the cricket game and we left a large ornate wooden spoon.
I leafed through the logbook - its an interesting read. I see that Esscafe was here (with a gang of famous cachers) back in 2007 for her 1000th find (and now she's the country's top geocacher with 35000).
Our first cache of the day, but by now it was about 2pm so we decided to stop to eat our lunch here.
