This morning, as I was settling down to the day’s work I spotted three caches within 10 miles of home that had just come out. I could not resist.
10 minutes later and I was at GZ for the first one, by the Shropshire Union canal in a field. I scanned all around the abandoned hut at the side of the field but could not find the cache. I gave up and went on to the second cache, which was not far away.
For the second cache, it was a 0.35 walk over some very flat fields. I was soon at GZ and had a quick find of the nicely hidden cache. Just when you think you have seen all variations on a hide, a new one comes along!
I then returned to the Jeep and went back to check again on cache 1, but still could not find it.
A short drive later and I was nearing the third cache. It was in some lovely woodland that we had eyed for a cache hide ourselves ages ago but never got round to taking it further. Anyway, the woodland turned out to be just as lovely as I was expecting and I soon had the cache in hand.
When I got back home, I emailed the cache owner of the one I could not find for any further clues they may have. An hour or so later they replied to apologise that they had had problems with the cache and had only actually hidden it an hour or so *after* I had been to look for it – doh!
I dashed out again, confident I knew all the places to look for it now and sure enough, found the cache in double-quick time.
That’s now 3 FTF’s for the day – very satisfying.
