Today we popped out on a rescue mission to recover a TB from an archived cache on the other side of Harlow. Apparently it had some placement issues with the landowner/ranger and had been archived. The cache owner has only 1 smiley and hasn't logged on since 2011 however previous logs suggested that the cache would still be in situ.
Upon arrival, my daughter grabbed my arm and said "Is that the cache?" It was lying on top of some recently cleared branches in full view of the adjacent footpath. Surprisingly the cache was in good nick and contained a trackable but sadly not the one I'd come to rescue. I decided to take the cache home with me as the cache owner hadn't addressed the issues with the landowner, it was archived and would otherwise be geo-litter. I've offered to post the cache to the owner if s/he contacts me.
We then headed over to Harlow to grab a recently published cache at a golden post box repainted to celebrate Laura Trott's win in the Olympics although her home town is actually at Cheshunt so the lucky lady has two painted in her name.
This evening we retried a cache that we searched for earlier in the week. No luck, must be very well hidden especially as it's big enough to fit 3 trackables in :(
Hoping to do a cache in a tunnel this week and to get to 600 by the end of the week! What are your caching aims for this week.
