Out for a walk on the moors this morning. Good to see an Opencache nearby, Soon found once the GPS had settled down. Thanks for bringing us here and thanks for the Opencache.

Our previous opencache had been the one on Sharp Tor but my caching partner needed a few GC caches along Kilmar Tor so we approached from that direction. We certainly didn't pick the easiest route as we came straight along the ridge which had not been necessary at all, but was a great deal of fun for a couple of cachers in their 70s! We came on to this cache which was fairly easy to find and quickly spotted, tftc.

The second cache belonging to this cache owner on our long walk today.  We had an enjoyable time, transversing the ridge on Twelve Mens Moor, to which ends, I suspect both of us will suffer tomorrow.  Great views along the top, and some fantastic boulders.  I really think that this ridge of tors is harder than any on Dartmoor.  The paths also are less used, so keeping an eye open for a path was paramount, and the sheep in this area, or lack of, didnt seem to be very helpful, pathwise.  Great cache again thankyou.

This is always a treat coming out to Kilmar Tor, a lot of people will think I'm mad, but I get real excitement clambering over this tor!! I visited this cache with Dave.johnson a couple of years ago, but forgot to log. So, better late than never. Off across the valley to Newel Tor before heading back to Craddock Moor.

I was Chirpily Touring the Tors - that was until I failed to find this one!! It was very wet in the low cloud and despite scrambling on my knees to search amongst the rocks, I failed to find the prize.

Found this whilst on a trek starting from Minions and via Sharp Tor Bearah Tor and Kilman Tor.

Quite interesting to see the sets of the old tramway so high on the hillside nearby.

This was to be my last cache of the day before heading back to Minions across the moorland.

Thank you for placing another great cache.

Originally found this as a Geocache on 28/06/2009 after attending The Picnic in the Rain Event. Great spot - Many thanks for the cache [:)]

We had already cleared this place of caches but longed to return. And we did still have four caches left to get. As we got near to them from the parking area at North Hill we flashed up the munzee ap. And what did we see, there was a munzee over this way. Then we discovered another opencache surrounding the munzee. What a reward. Not only a munzee, an opencache too. Well worth the walk. The wind was picking up a lot by now but the sunshine was glorious. Seaglass Pirate No.1 headed off for the furthest geocache and I text him to say there was yet another Munzee that way. And as it turned out, another open cache. What a day. Brilliant and TFTC

Found this cache after a great day with a group of 12 other cachers (including the cache owner Gribben) spending a day out on the Moors. Very windy, but excellent day. Great cache in good condition and as a bonus got a first to capture on the Mystery Munzee and bagged 25 points. Cheers Gribben..

Took us quite a while to find this cache. Looked under the corners of nearly every slab of granite in the vicinity similar to what is described in the hint. We were just about to move on to another cache when at last we spotted it under a rock we must have looked under before several times but missed it. In our defence it was slightly covered by ferns. Great views from the cache in fact across the valley there seemed to have been a car rally going on. TFTC

Found on what was (finally!) a warm sunny day.  Fantastic views from here.  TFTC!

I was blindly following the arrow over from Bearah Tor with the occasional detour round a boggy bit and once I found the old trackbed I followed that until close to the cache. No problem with finding it and after the briefest of refreshment breaks I set the GPS back to Sharp Tor then headed off again.

It was very eerie as the fog was getting thicker and I could hear animals all round me making whatever noises they make when they are uneasy and I did wonder if the Beast was out wanderingSurprised

Ayway, thanks for the cache, I did manage to get off the moor safe and sound.

Having failed at Sharp Tor I headed across the moor to see if I could have more luck at this one. En route I could see (and hear) the dreaded horses and hounds traversing Kilmar Tor in an easterly direction so thought Freddie and I should be OK now.

Nearing the cache area we could see a few trucks by the gateway of the private fenced off land across the valley and wondered if they knew something we didn't. They did, but by the time the whole procession reached them we were far enough away at the cache site and they were heading in the other direction into the private land.

The cache was a nice quick straightforward find. Signed log TNLN. A great walk on a lovely winter's day. Thanks for another good cache.
