Current state of the game
FTF at 1:25pm with Angelaobscura and ChudleighTraveller
When the weather was bad, we didn't falter
When the tors were high, we still believed
When the valley was low, it didn't stop us, no no
We knew you were waiting.
We knew you were waiting for us
And there we have it - George Michael, with a couple of adaptations, sums up our day. But I can't just leave it at that - more must be said about our adventures today. Clearly we knew that it would be quite a challenge indeed but this morning when the locations were released, it didn't look infeasible. We planned the route out and kept going, and I think it took us less time than we anticipated to get round the caches; they were all fairly easy to locate once we arrived at GZ, which was a relief today. After Hart Tor we calculated our coordinates, and were not entirely sure they were correct, so we popped by at the Cherrybrook to check with the CO and he confirmed that they were indeed correct and gave us some directions for the walk. We parked up and headed off towards GZ: as we crested a hill, the most majestic, most aesthetically pleasing of all the meteorological events we've encountered today formed before us - a rainbow. And on this occasion, myth became fact by means of a metaphor: it's said there's a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, and while that was not literally true, this cache was more or less at the end, and it's our metaphorical pot of gold. There was a bit more walking to do first, however, and this proved difficult as the path was very wet, it would have passed for a stream! Eventually however, we arrived at GZ and I uncovered the Holy Grail of the Day - this box. We were delighted to sign ourselves in as FTF on the final of this epic challenge, and for one I am surprised we did not have much in the way of competition. Thanks goes to Dave for setting up the Challenge for today, I will award my coveted 'Recommendation' to this cache on behalf of this series - rare as unicorn poo they are
