4884 2018-11-17 22:55 Amberel (user activity596) - Found it

After a couple of abseils, Smudge42 and myself came on here for a bit of variety.

We had a good chuckle at Dylan's stylish footwear, but opted for something with a bit more protection - even so, the water was still very cold.

Saw quite a few large green frogs as we walked along .

At the first fall we found the most beautiful patterns created by the continually falling water, after stopping for a few photographs we pressed on and arrived at the cache rather sooner than we expected to.

I dropped off another Amberel 70th Birthday PathTag before we made our way out again.

Thanks for another fun cache, a third Amberel TOP CACHE for the c/o today (visit link for details).

Rgds, Andy

First to find, as opencache.
Well, after getting my sweat on on shafted I know I needed a cool down but this pushed it a bit.
I have no waders so opted for old trainers, shorts duct tape and clingfilm for a bit of warmth.
Went in, the water is clear so could see the previous foot prints and followed their stroll.
Unlike Dan the water never reached my man bits luckily, just falling short by about 2 inches at the deepest parts.
Not a bad approach, the silt isn't to bad in this one and learning from flotsam and jetson to tape up old trainers helped big time.
Got to final fall and took far longer than I should on finding the cache, I'd headed up a little too high.
Got it in end signed in then talk the slow wallow back to Van.
Dried off, tried to clean the stinky mud off legs and got coffee to warm up, definately got numb feet.
Cracking location for a cache, nice one Mr Swindon Leys
