It’s still there, folks! Glad I didn’t look at the logs before I started searching or I might have given up prematurely! My ‘cacher-sense was tingling as I approached the GZ: there is one really obvious hiding spot! After an unsuccessful search, though, I figured I must be wrong and deciphered the hint, which strongly suggested that the “obvious place” really WAS where I should be looking. I tried again, and sure enough, it’s right where it ought to be: you just need to keep looking for a while! Easy reach for any adult – don’t give up!
Excellent container in an excellent spot – FP awarded. Now off back to the Vic for a well-earned pint!
