Great minds think alike


Recommended Posts

I've had caches in the past, where I've approached with a GPSr in hand, and spotted it from 20m away cos there was a rock or a stick that was not quite right. But recently I was out for a walk, I hadn't planned on doing the series of 25 caches I was walking past, as I was concentrating on the walk that day. But I stopped for a cuppa, and while sat enjoying the view, a thought occurred to me.


. o O ( This would be a good place for a geocache )


Followed shortly there after by


. o O ( If I was to hide a cache here, I would put it under that rock... the one that looks slightly placed )


I lifted the rock up, and what did I find underneath? A geocache...


It's nice to know great minds think alike. Has anyone else had something similar happen?

I've not been a regular cacher for some years now. I was in Menorca for a few weeks last autumn and went to look at an old quarry with my brother in law. I was looking at the info board at the entrance to the quarry when I saw a a suspicious looking pile of stones behind it, in the undergrowth.

I was sitting on a bench with Mrs F having a picnic lunch very close to a cache I had placed, so there could not possibly be a cache nearby could there? Part way through the snack Mrs F said "That looks like a cache", pointing to a soggy lookking camo bag on the next bench. Well eventually we opened it to find it was a cache. It had been washed downstream in the floods last year. Someone must have fished it out and left it to dry. Luckily we were able to return it to its owner.

So far this hasn't happened to us. Maybe one day ?. We don't often meet other cachers when out geocaching, but today we met 2 lots at two different parks. A bonus for us I love meeting others when we are out.

Now I will be looking at all piles of stones twigs etc when out walking wherever we are even if we are not caching at that point ?
