Smokin' under water
|My uni - nothing at all to do with caching but a nice pic|
I had wondered why some finders had said it may have broken Groundspeak rules. I know why now. The original 'tube' that I had found for it to sit in - something that was already poking its head above ground - had gone and the cache was therefore planted into the ground. Fair comment but also slightly debatable I think as I've found many caches that are bottle tops, snails, etc stuck to tubes that are most definitely in the earth. A mute point anyway as the cache was getting close to needing scuba equipment to retrieve so it was moving house.
I had a good look around for somewhere to place it. Lots of likely looking areas but nothing quite right for my container. Umm...what to do. I also wanted to try and find somewhere relatively dry under current conditions. No point relocating it to another pond was there! I finally found somewhere close by that was, quite honestly, as good as it was going to get. It's not ideal but I know that there are a couple of other puzzle and multis that finish near mine so I couldn't make too much of a move.
I didn't want to change its D/T rating as I appreciate people rely on caches staying the same for their grids and have seen a lot about it recently on forums. I found a suitable location but I think the D is far easier now. I'll let others judge it for me and if it is, I'll archive the original to let people keep the D/T for their grids and put a new one in this location. I think that's fair.
So, off I come home to find that my phone has done something nuts and decided I was in a totally different location when I put the coordinates in. Great. Today I went back and got the correct coordinates so at least people can find it without wading around in the wrong area about 3 miles away!
As for the picture, well it's got nothing to do with the cache. I was just at uni this morning and the light and mist looked so nice. Wonder if I can place a Royal Holloway cache?
