I’d just sat down to get started on work for the day when up pops two new caches in Market Drayton. I can’t remember the last time a local FTF possibility cropped up so I just had to dash out to try and find them.
I soon arrived at the lovely Shropshire Church Gem and had the cache in hand after a short search. My problem came when I went to put it back as it seemed to have lost it’s magnetism. I did not remember seeing a magnet attached to it and a quick look around the area I had handled the cache came up empty. Very odd as it must have been stuck on somehow!
I ended up hiding the cache very close-by and texting Paul and Izzy (the other possible FTF hounds) saying what I’d done just in case they were chasing the FTF’s too (they were not). Off back to the Jeep and a short drive later, I was parked up for the walk to the bonus cache.
The cache page had indicated the cache was up a slippy bank and it was not wrong – especially with this morning’s rain. Thankfully there were lots of trees to grab onto to help me up and I soon had the cache in hand. A nice big box too, full of TB’s (it’s the starting point for a TB race between some local cachers).
Well satisfied by my impromptu caching session, I walked back to the Jeep.
