D'Abby Dash #4 - Biddlesden

By: Ratz42 & Roan65 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Other

A quick find which was lucky as this usually quiet road suddenly became very busy! The log was too wet to sign so we took a photo as proof. Can email to the CO if needed. TFTC

The old layby

By: The forrests Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

Nice quick find. The log book had unfortunately been scribbled on by someone intent on sharing obscenities so we removed the offending pages. All clean now [:D] TFTC [:D]

Clem's Walk Su Doku

By: The Bramblers Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Cool puzzle [8D] Mike got the info and solved the su doku and Jess joined him on the walk to find the cache. You know sometimes you walk into a field and you look around the perimeter for the footpath signs? "I wonder where the footpath is" you wonder nice and loudly in case the land owner is nearby, perhaps including a hand to the forehead to show you are looking... Yeah, no chance of not knowing where the footpath is on this walk [:D] TFTC [:D]

Red Sauce or Brown?

By: brew-a-cache Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

Great idea for a puzzle. [:D] Another that was solved ages ago and not picked up. Finally we had the chance today. We wondered if the CO lived close by and looked out for twitching curtains [;)] TFTC [:D]

Merefield Pocket Park

By: brew-a-cache Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Glad my A level came in handy for this puzzle. Solved ages ago but we hadn't got around to finding the cache yet so we set off again today. We must have a gazillion 'looks' on your see-who-viewed-this-cache audit because we typed the coords into the notes section and keep promising to go to pick up the cache! As we arrived at GZ we laughed at the many options but resolutely set about checking the correct one and missing the cache, then checking every other option before returning to the correct place again (isn't that just typical!) for a quick find. TFTC [:D]

Riddle me this, Riddle me that

By: pirate1883 (Adopted by The Allotment Gardener Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small

Well, we visited in the summer and had a right old time climbing and hunting, delving and burrowing but no cache to be found. A PAF was needed and we got the hint we needed about a month ago. Why, then did it take us this long to actually go and complete the hunt? No-one knows. By the way, we still ended up looking in all the wrong places again anyway!!! The cache was found eventually in a place we had already looked. We disturbed a family of small furry rodents so I hope they are happy with how we swiftly replaced things for them. TFTC [:D]

A Lump of Concrete Near Harpole

By: The Allotment Gardener Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

So all we had to do was go to Harpole and look for a lump of concrete nearby. Found it!

A 40 Boar

By: Cariadgold Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

Very, very quick find. Amazed to see this creature here. Is it new? I must have driven past so many times and been concentrating on the junction instead. Anyway, TFTC! [:D]

Ira "Taffy" Jones

By: Cariadgold Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Found in the glorious Boxing Day Drizzle. How lovely [:D] Lovely spot for a cache, thanks for placing it here. [:D]

Rebecca Riots

By: Cariadgold Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Cool carvings [:D] A very quick find with the clue - didn't need the GPS. Mike dealt with the admin while Jess read the info board for the history. TFTC [:D]

The Not So Secret Society

By: WilArchMS Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

As we pulled up and parked right next to the cache we could see exactly where it was going to be. It was therefore a race between Mike and Jess to get the cache so they both jumped out of the car and raced to the spot. Mike was on the correct side so he won! Haven't visited since the bypass was built so it is strange to see the road so quiet. Should help with the muggles! TFTC [:D]

Cyclists Dismount

By: mushroom mike Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Other

A very easy find, we knew where it was going to be on approach. If only the muggles would move before we got there! The CO has kindly said we can log this as found even though we couldn't open the lid of the cache to sign it. A photo was taken as proof of the find. Merry Christmas and I hope you enjoy the event, I hear you are wearing a... "rubber ring"... wow! TFTC [:D] This entry was edited by mikenjess on Tuesday, 27 December 2011 at 11:40:12 UTC.

The Deerhunters

By: Mushroom Mike Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

Superb! We loved scrambling around in the trees. The GPS decided we were having a laugh and refused to play ball. At GZ (unbeknown to us) it said to go another 80 yards uphill so off we went in different directions. We resorted to working our way back downhill checking every place that we could think would be a good place. Jess uttered the cacher's joyful "Found it" and glanced back down at the GPS... "3ft".. well it's no good telling us NOW! TFTC [:D]

Muggle Mayhem

By: mushroom mike Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Other

Out for a wander on the beach and a search for a chip shop that might be open SMILIE Nice quick find in a place that Jess has been before but didn't know there was a cache here! Can see why you picked this spot. It must be full of muggles in the summer!

TFTC [:D]

Hectic Harbour

By: CaptainCrazy Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

Didn't need the GPS as the clue was so good. Walked over from the centre on a cold and blustery day as the tide was coming in. It is always a pleasure to see the harbour fill up. TFTC [:D]

Harbour Heights

By: CaptainCrazy Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Nice easy cache to find, spectacular views of Saundersfoot, wishing lots of bad karma to the dog owner who didn't clear up near to GZ. Honestly, why do they do that? Anyway, great spot for a cache. Really glad you put it here. Thanks very much! [:D]

Alphanumeric Northants - S

By: The Allotment Gardener Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

Out on a dark and chilly night. Cache was pretty straightforward to find by torchlight luckily. Quite unluckily we didn't relise we had picked up half of the footpath's mud on our shoes [:D] TFTC [:D]

Norbital - Rectory Farm Roundabout

Well illuminated! This pesky little fellow had me going for a while. Not too long luckliy as it was raining! Sat in the bus stop to complete the admin SMILIE TFTC [:D]

Norbital - Round Spinney

By: firemountain24 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Other

Easy find, no need for GPS. It was late at night when I (Jess) found this. A dodgy looking man came past on his bike and he kept looking back over his shoulder. I swear he stopped when he got to the other end of the tunnel. Needless to say, I became Scaredy McScaredy-Cat and very jumpy. Decided to chance my luck with the traffic up top and dodged the cars on the roundabout rather than go through the tunnel! All's well though [:D]

Norbital - Goldings

By: firemountain24 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

The GPS was playing silly bu**ers so I ignored it and followed the clue. TFTC [:D]

Norbital - Rectory Farm PAF

By: firemountain24 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

[:D][:D][:D][:D] [:D] FTF [:D] [:D][:D][:D][:D] @11:20 Still putting off the Christmas shopping SMILIE. This one had us foxed for a little while so we went off to find 'Extra Time' before returning for a second look. The clue was straightforward enough but we found many kinds of the feature mentioned [:D] Of course it was in the obvious spot eventually and Mike was the sensible one who checked it. Another clean log sheet! Fab. Best get off to the shops then!

Merry Christmas FM and TFTC [:D]

[:D][:D][:D][:D] [:D] FTF [:D] [:D][:D][:D][:D] @ 11:10 Saw this pop up at breakfast time. Hmm... a dilemma... do we go Christmas shopping as planned or do we go over to Kislingbury first to complete the Kislingbury FC series.

Needless to say we didn't need much persuading to put off the Christmas shopping by half an hour [:D]

Off we went and found t he coords to be spot on. A five minute search with very very nippy fingers and Jess spotted the cache. A clean log book and a FTF prize. Wow!

TFTC FM [:D]

Northampton Old & New

By: The Allotment Gardener Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Mike enjoyed doing all the leg work for this a while ago. GZ proved to be quite muggly, so hard to hunt properly. Mike and Jess both tried a couple of times though! Jess eventually found the cache today while she was placing a couple of caches locally. A great multi, thanks. [:D]

Thanks also to the squirrel who served as a patient and useful diversion as a photography subject while Jess waited for muggles to move on.

Dec 10, 2011

The Black Box

By: The Allotment Gardener Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Bizarre! Both the mystery box and the odd 'covering'. Not seen that before! Quick find once Jess worked out the hint, Mike was left to retrieve the cache as it was properly jammed in place - we blame the cold weather.

TFTC [:D]

Little Brington Spire

By: The Allotment Gardener Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

An interesting site. Plainly saw where the cache was hidden long before we got there. The cache was guarded by a thousand snails. I wonder why they like to stick to cache boxes so much?! TFTC [:D]

Alphanumeric Northants - R

By: The Allotment Gardener Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

We thought a quick multi on this chilly Sunday afternoon might just be the ticket and it certainly was. Thank you for the little walk and the nice views. Each stage nice and easy, cache was easy to find too. TFTC [:D]

A Random Bench #3

By: Coppers Lot Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

Jess has been here before... when there WAS a bench. She failed miserably, however, as she was blatently looking in the wrong place. Mike and Jess came by together today and Mike spotted the cache almost before Jess was out of the car. TFTC [:D]

The Mystery of St. John's Church Ruins

By: Bevaren Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

A quick find on the way home from work. Have been to this one before and couldn't even hunt due to the hysterical screaming woman who was having some sort of hissy. We left her friends to it and decided to return again another day! TFTC [:D]

Just Northamptonshire #049

By: The Allotment Gardener Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

Well this was hard work. I parked up near GZ to find the farmer cutting his hedge so sat and waited for him for 10 minutes but it became clear he was in no rush so I went of and got JN48. When I came back he was still cutting the same bit of hedge so I waited another 10 minutes for him to finaly finish. Finding the cache was the easy bit[:D] TFTC

Just Northamptonshire #048

By: The Allotment Gardener Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

A nice quick find. The log was a bit damp mainly because the lid wasn't fully screwed on because the (borrowed) Ikea pencil inside is longer than the cache, putting it at an angle in the cache works. TFTC

Blank Kit Box

By: firemountain24 Difficulty: 4.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

Woohoo! Jess solved a puzzle! *proud* Not normally adept at puzzles... at all. [:I]

Anyway, as soon as she saw this puzzle she had a good old go, but realised it was harder than she thought. She tried the next night and followed so very many tangents trying to find a lead. Did you know that there is an exchange box (?) at the publish ed coords on Google Street View with a yellow coloured square on the side of it? [:O] I kid you not. Firemountain24 was not giving anything away, and rightly so, so Mike and Jess bounced more ideas around but got nowhere. Jess even asked TAG if he had a clue and they explored a few avenues online bu t they all were dead ends.

Then Jess screwed her big head firmly on and announced that she would try solving the coordinates like huge algebraic formulae... [V] EPIC fail!!!

Thank goodness Firemountain24 published a second clue. SMILIE

A couple more dead ends and a little more twisting of ideas an d Jess spotted something. She stuffed the info into the formula and didn't even check her calculations *excited, lol* properly before checking it out on geochecker.

Well, she had spent so much time on this one that she just couldn't leave it and proudly told Mike and insisted that they go out and find it. Luckily Mike was as up for it as she was and they headed out into the night. Mike is better at finds so he did the honours at GZ while Jess got spooked by an approaching car (ghost car) that killed its lights and disappeared into thin air.

She Epitomised This

By: Fluffy's Revenge Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

Well now, that was clever :) Jess spotted the solution but didn't 'see' the solution. She spent far too much time enjoying Google Streetview! I hope I haven't said too much. We chuckled over The Art Angell's log which we remembered when walking back from the find. The cache was guarded by two muggles today; one slow-walking rambler (more of a meanderer) and one even slower-walking dog walker. At one point we even had to walk off with the cache as there was no way of replacing. Still, we did and it is safe and exactly as described. TFTC [:D]

Trip Trap II

By: mattyboy Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Small

Crikey - just noticed this hasn't been found for ages. We stopped off to find this cache today as we needed it for our D/T grid, believe it or not! The find was quick. There seems to be a lot of damage at GZ but the cache was there in a likely hiding place. The lid was open due to the stickers inside poking out and there was no log book I'm afraid. It doesn't look like it's been muggled though. We found a receipt on the ground nearby so signed that and popped it in the cache. TFTC [:D]

Corby Steel #7 - Steelmen

By: Evenin' All Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

A Perfect View

By: SEJ & B Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 3.5 Container: Micro

Hurrah! A cache to help tick off the boxes in our D/T grid. Thanks! We found the cache after a short search, hampered only by the lack of light which, incidentally, meant we couldn't appreciate the view. We are sure it is as great as you claim though SMILIE There were a million (or maybe a dozen) snails guarding the cache this evening. TFTC [:D]

Embarrassed? Me? Well, erm, yes [:I] but I'll not let on why!

Thanks for placing this here, TAG. I've got to say it's an evil one alright! Five and a half difficulty I think.

I saw this one in my inbox this morning and grinned the biggest grin [:D] I had an hour or two before work so I donned my walking boots an d headed on over to GZ.

I can quite proudly state that didn't get lost. [;)]

When I got there I was sure I'd find the cache straight away. But ohhhhhhhhh no. I was like a ferret in a warren in those arches. An empty pawed ferret at that! I spent over an hour; I looked here, I looked there, I look ed in, out, under, on top, around... I lifted things I shouldn't have lifted, I scrabbled and scrambled, I thought outside the box, I tried to engage my cacher's instinct...

Unfortunately I hadn't eaten any breakfast and I was losing energy and brainpower fast. A text message to TAG admitted as muc h and even though I deserve no mercy [:D] he must have felt sorry for me and pointed out I was in completely the wrong place.

A fresh hunt was on and a few more wrong turns before the cache was finally found (hurrah!) in the sneakiest of all sneaky places. Why I oughta... I was so grateful for tha t phone call because I would never have found it there in a month of Sundays. Not even two months. I wouldn't have given up though [:D]

I was also grateful because I was late for work by now and muddy, so I had to drive directly to school and hope the mud would magically dry up and shed by the time I got there. I don't think the kids noticed!

As I was taking a few snaps to add to the log Mr and Mrs Firemountain24 appeared in the same wrong place that I'd started in! Great minds think alike. SMILIE Lovely to see you both again.

From here we popped over to TAG's 49th, another evil hide!

Jess [ :D]

TAG's 49th

By: The Allotment Gardener Difficulty: 4.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Other

Oh lord, you really do know how to make caches hard to find, don't you?! I headed over to this one as I was taking a break from the horrendously difficult cache up the road. On this first hunt all I found was rust, dust and magazines of an adult nature. I kid you not.

On the second hunt (after a PAF) the cache was revealed. Phew!

I have no idea why I couldn't find t his on previous visits...

Sorry for the error in the note below. Hope you enjoyed the walk [;)]

By: fatforty Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Well I spent some time looking here this morning but failed. While driving away I saw TAG driving down the road towards it and thought "there is a man who will find the cache"! So I turned around and followed him, and sure enough he did find it. Happy with a second to find on this one! TFTC

Having met TAG back along the road it was time to see how an experienced cacher works, well I think we must have looked at the same spot about 4 or 5 times before seeing the "unmissable" cache! TFTC

Cheeping and Chirping

By: Merlin-K Difficulty: 4.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Not chosen

Joined forces with TAG and SCFurniss to discover what this chirping business is all about. Very clever! We liked this one, thanks for setting it. Lovely to see you TAG and SCFurniss [:D]

On a pleasant afternoon we walked around for a little while before picking up the chirp. Carol interpreted the chirp clue straight away and TAG spotted the cache container and went to get it. Jess would never have been able to get to this one on her own! W ell, she'd have had a good go!

Interesting set up with the container (clever [;)]), cache and the film canister. We almost thought it was the cache but had read the description so left it alone.

Nice hide, TFTC [:D]

The secret policemans ball

By: easy tigers Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Mike set about signing the log while Jess 'ohh'ed and 'ahh'ed about the story. She then grounded your love... by sprinkling the hearts on the floor by accident. She knew they were in there, why did she turn the cache over to tip out the log book?! Don't worry they are all picked up and replaced. [:I] TFTC [:D]

TAG's 49th

By: The Allotment Gardener Difficulty: 4.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Other

Visited today but think the item in the clue is missing. Have spoken to TAG to let him know. On these logs are you typing your message to the CO or to other cachers? I have never quite worked that one out. Anyway, think it's gone....... Hope not.

Nov 12, 2011

Hosed Down

By: fatforty Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Arrived at GZ to find two vehicles parked up. Hurrah, I thought, fellow cachers to catch up with. Alas, the vehicles belonged to bird watchers with the most enormous lenses I have ever seen. They prepped a nearby post (with something delicious in bird terms, I'm guessing), and looked as if they were ready to wait the whole day for the perfect photograph.

I had a quick glance around but could not commit to a proper hunt. Oh well.

Thorpe Malsor #9

By: W41KER Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Nice camo SMILIE I think the magnetism has gone though but it is not a problem. Last of the series, an enjoyable if quite spooky walk in the dark. This one was quite overlooked so I had to be careful of muggles but patience paid off.

TFTC [:D]

Thorpe Malsor #8

By: W41KER Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Hmm. Well I was prepared for a good long search here but it was actually fairly quick. It was in an unexpected place though so I will email the CO. TFTC [:D]

Thorpe Malsor #7

By: W41KER Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

Cool cache! This is what I imagined all caches were like when I first learnt about geocaching. A straightforward cache in a straightforward place. I like it. TFTC [:D]

Thorpe Malsor #6

By: W41KER Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

The GPS chirped so I looked for the nearest place. Now, even though the night was pitch black I was walking this route without a torch. My batteries were nearly gone so I was saving the torchlight for when I really needed it. Your series is quite a spooky one in the dark without a torch! Anyway, at GZ according to the GPS I flicked the torch on for a second and a second is all I needed. TFTC [:D]

Thorpe Malsor #5

By: W41KER Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

OK it's really dark now. I am beginning to regret taking this series on at this time of day! Whoops! Looked for a while in all the wrong places. It was much easier when I stopped and read the cache description page properly [:I] TFTC [:D]

I was just having a little 'snoop' when who should I see but SCFurniss so I waved at them until they could be in no doubt that I wasn't some strange woman standing in an odd place and waving but I really was another cacher... (the y weren't too sure about me at first) Very lovely to see you both. [:D]

We had a good old hunt around and had to resort to torchlight in the end to hone in on the find but I'm pretty sure we didn't arouse too much suspicion. Safety in numbers, at least [;)]

Thanks for the cache FM. We figured out your clues. Nice hide [:D]

Poshrule's Perambulate # 12

By: poshrule Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

We figured we were following in the footsteps of Zensunni and Bones as we'd seen their signature in every log and there were some footprints in the mud. Each footprint seemed to be slightly bigger than the one before it as they picked up mud. SMILIE TFTC [:D]

Poshrule's Perambulate # 11

Thornborough Bridge

By: oldun Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

A great cache - good location, easy find... However, Jess did this one alone after dark. As she parked up nearby she noticed another car was already parked, the driver just watching. She went off to find the cache only to be followed by him! What a scary moment. He didn't speak, or explain why he had followed her down a dark lane. Jess hot-footed it away as fast as her torch would allow and hoped he wasn't on her heels. Luckily not. Let's blame Jess' frights on it being Halloween season! TFTC [:D]

Halloween Hides & Creepy Caches -The Resurrection

Instead of a limerick, we meant To simply say 'thanks for the event' But like the screams all about The poem tumbled out.. Blame it on beer money spent. Thanks to the organisers for a fab day (and night!). SO much effort went into it and we had a great time and met some fab people.

Ichthyosaurs

By: JugglingJill Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 4.5 Container: Micro

Today Mike and Jess pelted up the steps as if they were full of Go Go Gadget juice, followed the GPS faithfully to GZ and patiently ignored it whilst it pointed its little compass arrow over the edge of the cliff. "Must be the trees" they muttered and proceeded to look in obvious hiding spots instead. Note to future cachers: If you discover a couple of very old and large discarded bottles then you have gone too close to the edge of the cliff. Back off! We enjoyed this cache, thanks! [:D]

No47

By: WilArchMS Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

This was not in the place we thought it was going to be but we saw it from a way away when we relooked. Nice spot, not too muggly if you time it right SMILIE Resisted the shopping from the ever glamorous No.47 - Jess loves that shop! TFTC [:D]

Makka Pakka's cache

By: Tortoiseshell Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

Found with some mini cachers today who did a great job of looking for the clue. The cache is now very, very exposed - the camo is now almost completely peeled off and the holes are exposed. I hope it is rescued before it disappears, it is in a nice spot SMILIE TFTC [:D]

Sambucus in front of the Fraxinus

By: korkyfoss Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Uh oh, Firemountain24 has shown me his photo and yes the cache has gone. I did avoid all passers by and I definitely wasn't seen doing anything suspicious at GZ so I am sure that I wasn't muggled, but as I was last there I can only apologize. It was a great hide; I hope it gets replaced.

Motorway Mayhem M4 J36 - Molly Shops !!!!

By: mollyjak Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Micro

We found this one during rush hour so there was a lot lot lot of traffic. Waited for, before we went for the cache, a group of lads to amble on down the road with an inflatable rubgy ball that must have been five feet wide. One of the more bizarre sights of the day, we admit... TFTC [:D]

Daventry Mile Stone #1

By: chillypenguin Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

[:D][:D][:D][:D] [:D] FTF [:D] [:D][:D][:D][:D] I was in danger of being muggled by a slow walking lady with her dogs so I loitered and waited for her to move on. She did, only to turn around and weave her way back again after disappearing around the corner only for a second! Blimey. Cue more loitering and fiddling with my phone. Finally she le ft and I could retrieve the cache that I could see from where I was standing.

A nice easy find, thanks. It just occurred to me that this one or the Mile Stone #2 would be an apt named cache for an GC milestone. Hmm, should have saved it for our 900th! I'll bet someone else saves it for a milestone one day.

Kislingbury FC - Under The Crossbar

By: firemountain24 Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

[:D][:D][:D][:D] [:D] FTF [:D] [:D][:D][:D][:D] I used the hint for this one as a family of muggles were hot on my heels. A quick find, a fumbling sign and replace and I was back on the footpath before they could think I was any more odd than they probably already thought.

By: firemountain24 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

[:D][:D][:D][:D] [:D] FTF [:D] [:D][:D][:D][:D] My GPS took me to completely the wrong place so I wasted a good few minutes here. I should have trusted my instinct as the cache was in the perfect spot.

Nice sized cache, good hide.

If I'd stuck around for a minute or two I would have bumped into SCFurniss who were nearby. Saw them later thoug h!

Kislingbury FC - Rock Solid Support

By: firemountain24 Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Not chosen

[:D][:D][:D][:D] [:D] FTF [:D] [:D][:D][:D][:D] I sat out the family of muggles and waved them on their merry way so that I could concentrate on the area. This one had me scratching my head, I can tell you. I looked in the *** and under the ***, behind each *** and even through the ***. The GPS kept on giving me a ridiculous reading so I didn't pay it enough attention. I should have because it was right! A sneaky hide, sir. I hope cachers that follow hide it as well as you did because you found a great spot.

As I replaced the cache I saw two figures stop off by "Under the Crossbar" so waited for them to catch up to say hello. Hurrah! It' s the lovely SCFurniss fresh from a FTF on the "Welcome to Northampton" cache and out for a Sunday stroll so we stopped and had a good old chat in the sunshine. Lovely to see you both again, see you again very soon, hopefully!

Just got home and I look like I've been dragged through a hedge backwards! So glad that Brackmills was quiet today and nobody saw [:I]

I spent a long time at this one, mostly battling with brambles, I've got to admit. It's like they were intent on wrapping themselves into every inch of m y hair that they could. A couple of branches also decided that my sunglasses would suit the tree better and whipped them off my head. Having crept and crawled my way through to every place I could imagine that the CO would think of to hide the cache I was amazed when I found it where I did. How funn y [:D] and how very sneaky!

The Worlidge #5

By: Haveachip Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small

Again we ignored the coords and followed the clue and cacher's instinct! Actually we happened to go straight to it anyway as the cache could be seen a way off. We left it covered up little. Nice little hide. TFTC [:D]

The Worlidge #4

By: Haveachip Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Small

Coords took us to the wrong place but we followed the clue SMILIE TFTC [:D]

Wow! Lovely tree! TFTC [:D]

The Gallops

By: Haveachip Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Micro

We were working from the published coords as of this morning so we had to ignore them in the end and go with cacher's instinct! The clue was spot on, thanks. TFTC [:D]

D'Abby's return - Off the Welsh Lane - Pimlico

By: Roan65 and Ratz42 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Well we found this one by feeling again in the exact same spot that we had both already looked! TFTC [:D]

The Ghost Line

By: Roan65 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

We needed four eyes for this one (no slacking, team!) and it was eventually found in the obvious place. TFTC [:D]

Syresham Bridge #5

By: Roan65 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

It took us a while to get past the sheep farmer, his family and his enormous sheep lorry so that we could track down the path to the cache. Glad we did though, a lovely little walk - just the right length for a good old natter in the evening sunshine! TFTC [:D]

Syresham Bridge #4

By: Roan65 and Ratz42 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

We resolutely ignored the stink from the chicken factory (pe-ew!!) and took a minute or two to find the cache in a great place. TFTC! [:D]

When things go wrong

By: brew-a-cache Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

Stung to shrivelled status we narrowed down the search, not quite believing the GPS. Funny extra story actually; we were night caching and I lost my sunglasses. Erm, [:o)] yes.

Cache nice and dry, hidden well, TFTC! [:D]

[:D][:D][:D][:D] [:D] FTF [:D] [:D][:D][:D][:D] @ 10.15am

I love this fairytale place! Arrived here a few hours after the cache had been published so expected to find either signatures or other cachers present. "Hello..." I called through the woods...

It turned out I was alone so I enjoyed the surroundings and eyed up the really good tree ove r the water that deserved a climb [}:)]

Looked for the cache for a good long while in the obvious spots and sent the CO a text to check I really was in the right area as my GPS was acting drunk again due to the trees.

A good thorough search in the places I had already thoroughly searched and the finally cache was found. And the log book was fresh! Hurrah! This is only our second FTF so very special.

Cue huge smiles [:D]

FD's Night Cache

By: Flamedodger Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Regular

[:D] If you go down to the woods today, you're in for a big surprise... No, not teddy bears but a large group of people trogging around in the dark with torches on their heads - "This way!" "Where's the marker?" "Have we gone around in circles?" "I'm pretty sure we've done this backwards..." [}:)]

Great fun cache and really good to meet everyone tonight. Thanks for t he cache FD and thanks for setting up the mini meet brew-a-cache. [:D]

The Heights Of....

By: wallacewarrior Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

Well that was fun! After checking with the CO if I was on the right track solving the puzzle I set up a spreadsheet to find what I was looking for as info on the net varied so much. Got the magic green blob on Geochecker and off I went. Upon arrival at GZ I knew where I wanted to go but the footpaths weren't clear so I trogged on anyway [;)] Guess what I found at GZ? A man, wandering around with a phone; not suspicious at all.

Great to finally meet you Flamedodger! Sorry about blinding you but them's the breaks. [}:)]

Fab spot, amazing views. Definitely one for a clear day.

Congratulations JaandJa!

The Heyford Docks

By: korkyfoss Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

Well we didn't have all the coordinates (so does this still count as a find?!) in fact we only had two parts so we guessed, drew lines all over our prinout map and followed our cacher's instinct like the kids in the Bisto advert. Luckily Mike is more intelligent than Jess and knew what the clue referred to so we went straight to it. Lovely box! TFTC [:D]

An ancient barn

Well the GPS in Jess' hand said 20ft away, the iphone in Mike's hand said 2ft. Unbelievably, Mike won! What's that all about! TFTC [:D]

The Heyford Drive by

By: korkyfoss Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Not chosen

Found it nice and quickly due to spot on coords. It's not magnetic and it's not a nano and the clue is not true either but hey ho, it's a cache! Fab. TFTC [:D]

The Sun

By: korkyfoss Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Small

What a cool, cool place! I will have to return with my camera one day. Previous logs have worried that it is not magnetic any more. It is, just, and works if you scrape some rust away. Quick find, TFTC [:D]

South of Iron Cross

By: The Groundsman Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

Wow look at these for spooky dates: 11/09/10 last find by Wavvy
12/10/11 my find today!

I noticed this one hadn't been found for a while so, inspired by Flamedodger's Resuscitator cache I thought I see if I could revive it.

So glad I did, exactly one year, one month and one day after it was last signed.

The lid of the cache is cracked open. Contents are dry at the moment.

Northampton Central Library

By: doyboyz Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.0 Container: Regular

A well deserved favourite point for this unusual cache. We liked the look of this whwen we saw it and guessed what the final cache would be - a great idea. A while ago we collected the information needed but could not complete the cache. We left it, then, for a milestone and today was the 800th SMILIE A fab cache in a great location (could have stayed and browsed for too long!). TFTC [:D]

Fox's Trail Series - 6

By: Silver-Fox & Vixey Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

Will post a maintenance log for this one too as the heavy camo, I suspect, has cracked the lid open. The contents seem dry though. The clue is so true! The same can be said for many of these things [;)] TFTC and thanks for the series, we really enjoyed the walk, just what the doctor ordered.

Fox's Trail Series - 5

By: Silver-Fox & Vixey Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

Leafing through the old log pages we couldn't find where to add ours so we found one from this day five years ago and signed on teh bottom of that one. These caches have been here a while then! TFTC [:D]

By: Silver-Fox & Vixey Difficulty: 1.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Oh dear. We found pages of the original log strewn around but the cache container was absent from all likely places. We scooped up the pages, signed one, and put them in a new bag for the CO. We left it in the hollow post under a stone. Will post a maintenance log to flag it up.

Church Micro 1658 - St Mary's, Grafton Regis.

By: Wavvy Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Other

We've been here before but took the clue far too literally, taking too much interest in the Blunt family buried nearby. We also circled the church again and again, getting coords confused and searching (we thought) every available spot... Today I walked straight to it, found in seconds and didn't even need the item in the clue. Typical! I signed with my fountain pen as I didn't have a biro so I hope the ink didn't smudge when rolling the log back up again. TFTC [:D]

A Puzzling Purpose

By: brew-a-cache Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Micro

Tee hee We'd been meaning to do this for a while and wondered how we were going to make friends with someone who owns a cherry picker. In the end we gathered all sorts of bits and bobs from the garden shed and created a monstrously wonderous cache retrieval tool that did the job. Jess had a try and got the cache to the edge. Mike took over and the cache dropped... to the next rung down [}:)]. A swift nudge and wriggle and the cache was in our hands. Great hide, and one that won't haunt us any more! TFTC [:D]

By: XBOXCrew Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.5 Container: Small

Entered the field before this one and looked at the droppings to work out the livestock rating. Too small for cows or horses, too big for sheep... what on earth?

Overhere, Down There

By: T A G Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Other

Oh rain, rain, rain. It can be a great asset to caching, can't it, when you are hoping noone is paying you any attention. But when you are soaked to the skin, rain is streaming down your face and your toes are squelching puddles up out of the top of your trainers one may say enough is enough. Especially when you realise as the rain begins to ease off.. that you had a brolly in your bag all along. This cache took ages as I had more rain in my eyes than braincells in my brain but got it in the end. Needed to find a spiky extraction tool to get to it.

Overhere, But Only A Quarter!

By: T A G Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Other

Oh dear. I found the source of the noise. There is a track next to the canal that bikes and quads are blaring their way around. I tried to hold a phone conversation whilst at this cache but had to hang up because it was so loud [:(]. Boat people were chugging past and weren't happy either. To round it all off, as I walked past the entrance to their field a couple of vans loaded up with bikes and their riders left to make their way home and waved farewell to me. With one finger. How pleasant. TFTC anyway. I hope future cachers have nicer experiences!

Overhere, But No Fishing!

The coords were definitely out (probably out, possibly.. OK, could have been the GPS) but the cache was found after a widened search. Jess had trouble extracting the cache from it's hiding place but we got there in the end. TFTC [:D]

We spotted a likely GZ upon approach, followed the GPS around in circles for a while then trusted our initial instincts and bingo! TFTC [:D]

Ouse Valley Walk - Flood Plain

Ouse Valley Walk - Bridge to Passenham

By: WavendonWilliams Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

We had cover from muggles in the form of a very loud football match being conducted nearby in an unfamiliar language. Lovely mill stream. TFTC [:D]

By: Green Brigade Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

That's funny, Jess has been meaning to stop off by this one for a while and the cache was exactly the type of cache she was expecting... but this is a replacement? Hmm. I wonder what the last one was? Nice to be FTF the new one SMILIE, and a nice fresh log to sign.

Brackmills Country Park - A Different Style?

By: JaandJa Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Micro

A long, long time ago, well - six months ago anyway - mikenjess went out for a walk to see if they could hunt out their 4th cache. They came to A Different Style full of hope and confidence. Alas! They searched in the wrong place. Convinced it was in a prickly place, they concentrated their search there. They had read the previous logs for clues, you see, which was their downfall. They were yet to develop their cacher's instinct. Defeated, they plodded on around Brackmills country park and luckily went on to find a few more caches. It was because of this little jaunt that their Geospirit was ignited and they knew then that this Geocaching lark was to take over their spare time. Today they returned to A Different Style to see out their 704th cache and walked straight to it. Practice makes perfect. The End TFTC [:D]

Bexter's first hide cache and dash?

By: Bexter666 Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Other

Spotted some cachers-in-a-car at GZ so I didn't attempt to hide what I was up to. Hoped they would give me a hint as to where the cache was but no such luck! Lovely people though [:D] nice to meet you! Had a good old look; high, low, in front, behind, inside, outside, under and then just for fun a good climb skywards. Eventually I found it in one of the first places I looked! A very sneaky hide [;)]

FM The Trailer

By: firemountain24 Difficulty: 4.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Not chosen

I love interesting caches. [;)] This was such a cool place! As I approached I thought "now where would I hide a cache that would be a difficulty rating 4...?" A few minutes look around and there it was. Fab! [:D]

Then I was interrupted by a (probably friendly, lets be honest), dog who picked up my fear of dribbling, growling do gs and proceeded to dribble, growl and bark at me. I had to yell for help and the owner came to my rescue when I screamed [:O]. If Mike had been with me (Jess speaking) then I'm sure it wouldn't have been scary but oh my lord my heart was pounding! Thought I was going to lose a limb! Huge thanks to the owner who was very nice.

FM Brampton Hill Crossing

By: firemountain24 Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Not chosen

Yucky! The rain was pounding down by now and so the Garmin was tucked away safely. In a feeble raincoat I checked every place I could think of (well, nearly!) whilst becoming more and more cold and wet. I did meet a friendly furry friend who obviously lives in the hedge I was furtling around in though, so there was a bright moment! [^]

He told me where the cache was. OK he didn't; he went back to his living room. I found it on my own.

FM Jacks Lane

By: firemountain24 Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Couldn't hunt as there were lots of muggles. Who (other than cachers) wants to go out walking on a rainy day?! OK showery but nevertheless. Note because:

There has been a huge clean up here - new fences, weeds gone and lots and lots of sawdust around. Considering the hint could this be a danger?

By: Flamedodger Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 4.0 Container: Not chosen

Well I've never had to do THAT one handed before! Such a toughie for a girl (as in not tall!) on her own but off I went! Woohoo! What a fab trail. Got up really, really early to do the whole run in one morning and boy was it tough... but fun [8D] Nearly PAFed on a couple of occasions but resisted the temptation and stuck at it. Loved the 'highs' and the 'lows' of the trail. I think I'm dizzy [;)]

Bex & Jax's Firs trail- From little acorns.....

By: Bexter666 and Jackie68 Difficulty: 5.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Not chosen

I'll be honest. I was feeling heavy-hearted; the ants were getting to me (man, there are billions!), and the lack of reception on the GPS was stupid and having found only one cache in the woods so far I was turning to go back home. I noticed there was a difficulty 5 on the list so I headed up to this corner thinking 'it can't hurt - so many DNFs - one fail and then home...' Luckily, finding this one really boosted my caching spirit and off I skipped to find some more in the woods. Happy days [8D] TFTS (Thanks for the sneaky)

Mike knew exactly which tree is was but Jess insisted on climbing the wrong one anyway. We searched for about 10 minutes before we used some logic and spotted it. A silly photo shoot, a quick retrieve, sign and replace. It's great when the replacement is just as much fun as the retrieve [:D] Thank you very much for placing this cache. Great fun! M & J [:D]

What a great wood to place a series around! Fabulous, thank you CO. Although vehicles are allowed we walked the route and quickly decided that we wouldn't recommend it for cars. A Range Rover powered on past us at one point but I guess that's what it was built for! We would totally recommend visiting the wood on foot though - a real Olde English treasure full of Ash, Oak and Maple. Oh, and puddles [:D] Nice easy one to start with. Mike set to the iwork and looked back through the previous logs and found a clue just as Jess found the cache. She got an unexpected shower as she retrieved it too! It must have rained last night.

Oh man. Whilst we are on the subject of wrestling with undergrowth, who beefed up the local stinging nettle power? They are seriously pumped and practically lethal at the moment. It is now hours after I found this one and my legs still feel like they've been attacked by jellyfish. Perhaps they have. Invisible dry-land jellyfish that live in nettle patches near to caches.

I got brambled by a particularly keen bramble today. It seemed to be intent on pulling all my hair out whilst wrapping itself aro und my neck. I fought back; don't you worry.

Aw now here's the reason I should not read other people's logs for clues. I spent ages looking for a caches under a pile of stones and had to leave and come back for a second try. The cache was NOT under a piles of stones at all. Not in the slightest. Nice big cache btw, plenty of room for swaps and TBs. TNLNSL TFTC SMILIE

Let's Surf

By: bluestrike808 Difficulty: 3.0 Terrain: 3.0 Container: Micro

Definitely a five star difficulty for us but a favourite nonetheless for the fact that we had to dive! We both sustained injuries from this one today. Jess cut her fingers rubbing the algae off stage one and Mike cut both his fingers and toes on the cable [:(]. We looked for a while using the only equipment we owned - a pair of child's goggles!- before returning with a mask and snorkel. We also found this hard because it was a rough high tide which meant the waters were fast moving and murky. We couldn't give up on this one though! We looked in the wrong place, too, as the thing in the hint was obviously in a different place! Once we looked west instead of east, however, we spotted what we needed to dive for. Cue much excitement! [:D] There was no obvious access to stage two but that wasn't going to stop two determined geocachers on vacation. We ignored the private property signs and both the security guard's and the sunbathers' desire to move us on. A good search of the area and a wise avoidance of the pretty crabs later and we had a cache to finally, and proudly, sign.
Thanks for this cache, it will be one we will never forget!

We had a 300th to celebrate and what better way! We had to PAF TAG at the second stage who directed us onwards. We were completely baffled by the next stage but 'swallow'ed our pride and went on to find the next stage. At GZ we had to 'duck' down to enter and it all became clear.

We laughed but I'm sure TAG laughed more when I told him I had to use my big toe for this one.

I'm so sorry. I found your cache today but it has been trashed. A film canister wrapped in black tape was in the grass verge. It was empty and has been run over. I put it in a place in the tree for you with a stick to mark it. RIP #7!

Welcome to Lactodorum No1

By: amytho Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Hooray! I have a Police story! I was walking back from signing the log when a car pulled up beside me. Strange, for a busy road, so I turned around and came face to face with two policemen. [:O]

Policeman #1: Are you alright?
Me: Yes thanks.
Policeman #2: Only, we saw you standing by the sign and it's an odd place to stand so. ..
Me: Oh
Policeman #2: What were you doing?
Me: It's fine, I was just snooping.
Policeman #1: Oh! O.K. Then. Bye!
Me: Bye! (quietly guffaws and commits the conversation to memory to tell everyone later)

Honestly?!
a) Why on earth did I think that "Snooping" was a reasonable explanation?
b) Why on earth did the Police agree that "Snooping" was a reasonable explanation?

Turnover bridge

By: Silver-Fox and Vixey Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

Came here especially as I had a canal boat travel bug to drop off near water. What a beautiful place! I got snap happy with my camera (which I have recently found acts as an excellent cover for when muggles are around!), taking lots of pictures of bridge and boats until time got the better of me and I remembered why I was there. Didn't have a GPS on me so I used a bit of cahcer's instinct and walked straight to the cache. Brilliant. TFTC! [:D]

Bridge 9 - Swan Valley View

By: The Allotment Gardener Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Definitely a high muggle concentration zone. Pretty place though. Coordinates told us to look in the middle of the road so we ignored them and looked where we thought it should be. And there it was. TFTC! [:D]

Jess worked out where the cache was from home so she and Mike headed over to prove her theory. Excellent.

Motorway Mayhem: M4 Leigh Delamere W

By: The Odyssians Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

So over the bridge we trotted. Looking over the site we saw a virtually empty car park with three cars up at one end and people milling around them. "Hope that's not where the cache is" we said. Oh yes.

Who drives their family in three cars to a motorway services, parks up, pulls a giant gas bottle out and an enormous cooking pot? Anyway... yes they had chosen the spot next to the cache.

Attemping to be inconspicuous was futile so Jess created a (probably ridiculous and embarrassing) d istraction whilst Mike did the deed.

Magic Roundabout

Quick park up at Maccy D's and a stroll over to the GZ. We then went for the cache and found a handy path... after taking the harder route through the trees. TNLNSL TFTC SMILIE

Vale ring #2 (Mast view)

By: Soljerboy Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

There was a great view of the mast just down the road too so we nearly looked in the wrong place :) There was a good view of the airport too. TFTC! [:D]

Vale ring # 1 (Poleaxed)

We found the cache on the floor but placed it where we thought it may have come from. TFTC! SMILIE

Vale ring # 6 (Bog Off)

Laughing at the fact that Fandance's wife is SO going to find out he was out yesterday! Anyway, easy find. Log slightly damp but OK.

Vale ring # 4 (watch this)

By: Soljerboy Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Regular

This one was very, very obvious so tried to hide it again as naturally as we could. Great cache though. A surprisingly busy road so we had to be quick! Took coin onwards. TFTC! [:D]

Vale ring # 11 (Ivy long here 2)

By: Soljerboy Difficulty: 2.5 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Regular

Slight people may need a crane for this one :) Very obvious where the cache was as we arrived so a nice easy find. Took Arabian coin onwards. TFTC [:D]

Vale ring # 10 (stop & wait)

By: Soljerboy Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Micro

Well we worked out precisely where it was going to be from the clue. When we arrived we had a good old chuckle over the frequency of the services. We only know of one place in the world with fewer! Anyway, good hide. TFTC [:D]

Vale ring # 9 (Water way to be)

By: Soljerboy Difficulty: 1.5 Terrain: 1.5 Container: Small

So off we waded into the nettles and the mud... no need was there? Far easier than we thought it was going to be :) TFTC [:D]

Vale ring # 7 (Bullet)

By: Soljerboy Difficulty: 2.0 Terrain: 2.0 Container: Small

This one looks like it will become tricky to retrieve the log from the cache soon. We signed and left the book as much in the neck as possible for the next cachers. From here we went to go to #8 Stylish Cowshed but it really looked like the farmer did not want us here so we gave up trying to find a footpath. It turned out that #8 was much more eaily reached from another driveway further down the road anyway. Happy days. TFTC [:D]

Well we had to agree to come back later to this one after searching high and low for too long.

Hardingstone Trail No 3: Tie a yellow ribbon

What a wally, going out caching without GPS or a map. Still, you carry on anyway don't you? Luckily I had read this listing at work 2 hours previously and committed the location to memory. The clue stayed in my mind too and was pretty jolly obvious when I got to where I thought it would be.

A quick rummage around and there was the perfect spot to drop off two coins I had just brought ba ck from Cyprus.

By the way, the sudden rain showers and the warm sun had released all kinds of yummy smells from the elderflowers near here. A real treat SMILIE

Ew! Just read curiousman's post. We didn't see that hanging up but we did see our own real live snake - about a metre long... black... and incredibly fast. Luckliy it used it's speed to get as far away from us as it could. Found the cache where we thought it would be, signed and took a photo and scarpered out of there as fast as we could. Great views from on top of the Dam afterwards. TFTC!
