I was keen to attempt the GeoPath as a continuous walk, but shortening day length and additional some caching diversions along the route lead me to plan a two and a half day walk with two nights wild camping. The weather, range timings and work schedules finally coincided this week so off I went for a thoroughly enjoyable break on the wilds of Dartmoor. 

It's always a pleasure to be out on the Moor, even better when there are lots of quality caches to hunt down. The coordinates all seemed precise and access to useful clues and spoiler photos is very much appreciated (and used). I was also pleased to discover plenty of good sized containers with room for a bit of swag. Many thanks for your efforts in setting up an excellent series and many thanks also for the beautiful geocoin that I was thrilled to find waiting in the bonus box.

Given my abysmal track record for finding caches, I was so pleased to have arrived here with a full house:-)My heart sank a bit as I approached and saw the area it was in, but fortunately the co-ords were good (as always) and the cache was soon in hand :-)

I swapped a steel rule for a pair of Sony headphones.

Thanks for the cache and for a great "first GeoPath in the UK":-)#1 received one of my scarce recommendations, and this bonus gets another:-)And the entire GeoPath receives a TOP CACHE geocoin, see http://www.amberel.com/topcache.htm for details.

Rgds, Andy

Managed to pick up the necessary info on the way around and after a bit of simple maths the new coordinates looked good , once at gz the cache was again quickly found. Many thanks for the great prize which awaited me

Our first ever bonus cache. We were not too sure if we had put it in right so were very glad to find the cache after a fairly quick search. 

Love the geo coin, thank you.

Made hard work of this by thinking I'd missed one set of Bonus numbers, even though they were there in my notes - twice!

Worked out the search area and was working my way along it when communication with the CO let me know where the "missing" information should have been. The penny dropped and the final co-ordinates were re-calculated, less than 100 feet from where I was searching!

A quick find then followed, and the first of the FTF prizes was gratefully received.

TFTC and for a great series with plenty of challenging hides - if spoiler pictures are not used - and well-presented and stocked caches throughout.
