+reddeeps Posted June 29, 2011 Share Posted June 29, 2011 After a period of forestry closure where i have a series of caches, 2 weekends ago I went and replaced all the caches with fresh new ones. Within a week I was getting dnf logs, which I thought was strange as the originals had been out ages without a problem and I knew I had only just refreshed them all. Then i get a surprise email from Groundspeak.... "Hello Sue, Greetings from Groundspeak! I have an amusing story for you about your caches. We have been contacted by a resident of the West Bilney area whose dog is finding, retrieving, and presenting caches to her. She has no idea where they were hidden, but one container is a lizard and the other is a rabbit. It appears likely that they are the missing caches from your Sam's Lost Ball series. I am waiting for her permission to share her email address with you. Do I have your permission to share your email address with her? If both of you agree, contact each other and work out how she can return your containers. Regards" I was so pleased that someone had taken the trouble to contact Groundspeak (and pleased I had left a stash sheet explaining caching in the caches) and I was also impressed at the dog finding them, as they are hidden well and away from the main path. I have now been in contact with the finder and its a small world, shes the dog trainer that 10 years ago I took Sam to for basic training, so it was lovely to have a chat and catch up. And explains why her dog was able to find them as it is so well trained. Rehidng the caches again will be harder as her dog can track fresh human scent, so might have to put them up a tree now!
