Lunch break from a conference in the Barbican Centre gave me an excuse to introduce a colleague to geocaching. Couldn’t have done it without the hint! TFTC.
Hurrah! Patience paid off! I hung around for a while and the muggles dispersed for long enough that I could get in and sign the log. TFTC. Great hide, and fab location: FP awarded.
The only thing I love as much as a cache that teaches me some interesting history is one whose container is perfectly suited to its hiding place. Here, you’ve achieved both, and it’s great. TFTC!
An easy find although as I approached the GZ I was concerned that some roadworks that are underway might have prevented me from getting to find the Wills and Bill, but they turned out not to be too near the actual location I was heading for. Answers sent. TFTC!
A quick find on my way from my hotel to conference, this morning. GPSr was playing up and thought I was inside the nearby research labs (!) but the hint saw me through. TFTC.
Maximum stealth mode required for this one! An easy find, but a hard retrieval and an especially challenging return! (Just about within my reach; if Red is of the same design then I’m afraid I think it’s missing.)
Love the customised log scroll. Oh, and Gonzo is clearly a Gonzo.
A lot less stealth required here than for Whatever! TFTC.
(oh, and Rizzo is clearly the best Muppet)
Returned as found, but the hint makes me think that it’s supposed to be a lot lower down than where I found it! TFTC.
The hard part wasn’t finding the cache this evening but getting to it in a stealthy way! I sat on a kerb nearby for some time and retrieved and returned the cache during periods during which the nearby security guard was distracted with passing revellers. Phew! TFTC.
Attending a birthday party in a garden not 250m from this cache, I couldn’t help but excuse myself for five minutes in order to come out and log this cache. Nice hiding place! TFTC.
Quick and easy find with the geokid while on our way to catch a train home, after our trip to London Zoo. TFTC.
Found without too much difficulty while returning home from a picnic on Port Meadow. I know this pub well: I should have found this cache sooner! SL, TFTC.
This was a fantastic puzzle which I’d only glanced at when it first appeared. Happily, when I looked at it again earlier this week it suddenly became obvious to me what I had to do. A lovely lunchtime cycle ride took me to the GZ, but unfortunately every muggle and their dog (literally) was in the vicinity. Not to be beaten, I found a nice place to sit and ate my sandwiches while I waited for them to disperse. Keeping my eyes peeled, I was able to see what I figured was the cache container. Soon, my opportunity came.
Fairly easy approach to the cache. Obviously I can see why it has the terrain rating it does, but perhaps it’s that I’ve been spoiled by the likes of GC13WZQ/OK0044. Ratings aren’t quite the same after you’ve done that one (at least if you did it the way I did). Tooled-up with the knowledge (from previous logs) that it might be a slippery walk, I began my approach. Hopping down from my step was the easy part. Easing the cache out of its hiding place while staying safe and dry was the tough bit!
Cache is exactly at the advertised position and remains dry within. A writing implement would be a good addition – if I’m in the vicinity in the near future I’ll drop off one of my (many) spare mini-pencils. Checking once more for muggles (in case they’d returned!) I returned the cache and began my escape. Helpfully, my work shoes have reasonably good grip and my return to the footpath wasn’t difficulty. Excellent cache and puzzle in a fabulous location; TFTC!
