Think the bench must be inside the marquee pictured, based on the coordinates. I got my festival breakfast in the yesterday but didn’t think to look for the bench – whoops! All sealed up this morning as the festival campers have a post-party lie in and Cropredy life begins to pivot back towards normal. Never mind!
Finding the cache while avoiding strange looks from the boaters using the lock was relatively easy: I just sat down and did some stretches to give me an excuse to peep into the likely hiding places. Retrieving it while in stealth mode was harder, but luckily I’m wearing laced shoes. TFTC!
Took me an embarrassingly long time to find dis; GPSr threw me a few metres to the North and it was only while expanding my search that I spotted the bleedin’ obvious.
Log full, unable to sign. TFTC.
Like other recent finders, I’m here for the festival. Unlike some of them, though, I’ve had the foresight to come out shortly after dawn after the last night of music to be able to walk and cache without the crowds!
An easy find – I almost stood on tree cache while reaching deeper than I needed to into my first assumption about its hiding place! Love finding proper-sized caches in sensible hiding places like this: not those endless micro-in-a-hedge affairs you sometimes see. TFTC!
While free rest of the festival nursed their hangovers or simply enjoyed a much-needed lie-in after staying up late singing “Meet on the Ledge”, I got up early and came out for a walk. And, I figured, given the relative quiet of the canalside for the first time in a few days, an opportunity to find a geocache or two.
Comong among the road from the East – where I’ve camped – at first I was stumped as to where this could be hidden. As soon as I changed to a different path I immediately worked out where to look. TFTC!
No luck for me here. Hunted around the obvious host but even with the hint I wasn’t seeing success. Turned on my ANT gear to try to find the Chirp but couldn’t pick up anything: does this cache actually have a beacon, per its attributes? If so, it’s probably missing ‘cos I couldn’t pick it up.
Also, very disappointed that a previous visitor took it upon themselves to vandalise the GZ with graffiti (pictured). Boo!
Solved the puzzle long ago – helps that I have a Universal Drive for Perfection and know my numbers. But came by the GZ today and had no luck. Hunted in and around the obvious candidate – my shoelaces must be super loose! – and then its two friends without success. Maybe I’ll revisit when it’s less busy here.
Following a recent DNF log I cycled by the cache this lunchtime to check up on it. It’s still in-place and healthy! (And it’s possibly even slightly visible in my attached picture, though perhaps not at the resolution it’ll appear on the Web!)
Came up during a break in the rain during our holiday weekend in the valley. Greetings from Oxfordshire! TFTC.
Routine maintenance visit. Came in via the path through the field to the North (pictured) which was pretty challenging because the “path” is almost as deep in vegetation as the cornfield that straddles it! Gloriously hot today, and the elder tree at the GZ smells lush!
Pleased to see a log entry from March by some picknickers who found the cache by accident. Delightful!
Cache remains in fine condition and ready to be found!
