Dixie_Gooner and I have got together to have a stab at the opencache geopath again. With a plan to pick up as many as we can along the way.

Another find made here.

Thanks Dartmoor Dave for the cache.

I was out for a day's caching with NSCR as we attempted some more of the OoenCache Geopath.

Once again I was on the wrong side, but NSCR got there and located it before me.

Still buzzing from a quick find on the other DD cache nearby, this third OC of the day was also a quick find- just realised I am doing this trail back to front!! Still, the sun is out now and I am having a great day.. many thanks 4TCs

This is the first time I needed to consult the spoiler photo. Alas in hindsight I should have looked there! The weather is pretty good today, only 10 degrees with a fairly cool breeze but that is just right when walking at a reasonable pace. TFTC

Found in the teeth of a gale, exhilarating walking if a trifle scary at times.  TFTC and apologies for the late log.

Glad this cache wasn't up on the high bit of the tor, still very windy, now we are heading to lower ground. TFTC

Soon found after a climb

Fortunately, the large walking group just ahead of me didn't stop at this Tor and I was able to search for the cache undisturbed.

Our last find today. The weather was very good, and it was very quiet people wise all day, just how we like it.  Yet again, spoiler photo looked at and memorised and soon found the right approach, and the cache.  Neat little ledge.  Thanks for providing us with a day to go at our own speed over a rough area for one of us, and knock a few off this series.  Will be a little while before we do anymore, away to Scotland next week.

I spent a long, long time looking for this one - I just couldn't get a match with the spoiler even though my phone was telling me I was right at the cache.

Then I read some logs and found that others had also spent some time before realising they were on the wrong side of the tor. So I tried the other side, and bingo;-)The phone was telling me only about 4 or 5 feet away, but what a crucial 4 or 5 feet it was ;-)

Thanks for the cache,

Rgds, Andy

Trickiest so far!

FTF at 17:55

Spent too long searching at the wrong elevation on the wrong side of the tor before finally getting to the correct place and laying my hands on the cache in its simple but very effective hide. Yet again, having access to the spoiler picture would have made life so much easier!
