Welcome to OPENCACHE.uk

Geocaching is an outdoor sport or activity in which cachers use a GPS receiver to find a "treasure" hidden by other participants. Caches are watertight containers containing items for exchange (mostly inexpensive trinkets) and a logbook in which the finder records their discovery of the cache. The coordinates of the cache's location are stored in online databases such as opencache.uk, along with the description and instructions necessary to find it.

Overall number of caches: 980 active caches: 598 | Finds: 3,115 | Number of users: 501

Cache The Foggintor Hoard hidden by Lord Darcy
A large cache near Foggintor Quarry on Dartmoor
United Kingdom (UK) > Devon

I found this cache while it was still a TerraCache. Rather like one of the caches I had done the day before, my first attempt found me close to the cache, yet far away. I did consider the direct route, but (wisely, I think) decided against it Smile.

After backtracking, I eventually found it. And what a cache - a truly great cache in every sense of the word. The description says "Marine flare bottle". Well, I have a boat, and inside it I have a marine flare bottle full of marine flares and smokes. But it's not the same size as this one. This one wouldn't have disgraced itself on the QE2 Surprised.
TerraCaches have a wider range of cache ratings than OpenCaches. This cache earned my first ever maximum TerraCache rating of "superb", and it gets the top rating here of 6 out of 6 - if I could have given it 7 out of 6 I would Laughing.
It seemed almost curmudgeonly to not trade anything, given the extraordinary selection of items in the cache, but regrettably I had nothing left to leave in their place.

Thanks for a truly "superb" cache,

Rgds, Andy
