The Crisis Point cache on the hill at Lilleshall that we adopted from MarcB has been suspected as muggled for most of December, but with all the Christmas festivities, we’ve only just had chance to go over and check on it.
It used to be one of those big ammo boxes hidden in the undergrowth under some ivy. When we arrived today, we recognised the area from when we originally found the cache but the undergrowth had been totally cleared away. I’m surprised the cache lasted so long with no cover!
We had a good look round and found a nice hiding place not too far away so left a new cache in situ there. We did not think it was worth the cost of a new ammo box though as the cache does not get that many visitors now as all the locals have found it. We replaced it with a regular sized lock ‘n’ lock in a camo bag.
All is now ready for cachers to come and find it again.
Later on, we were in Newport and parked near the Off Yer Trolley cache at Waitrose. We’d seen the two DNF’s on it so thought we’d have a quick check on the cache to save the cache owner a trip. Needless to say it was not where we found it and we could not spot it anywhere nearby.
We posted a Needs Maintenance log on it when we got home later in the day.
