Hello Dartmoor Dave!
I'm pleased to inform you that your cache became: Cache of the month

I almost gave up here. Having completed the GC Virtual at the letterbox I hopped over the pool to spend ages seeking the GC cache where I placed my foot in the same hole as Amberel Andy. With one wet foot and a GPS that was pointing in different directions to my compass it wasn't looking hopeful.
My plan B was to use the distance from the GPS and direction from the compass which worked well enough to guide me to the cache. I am glad I spent the extra time on this one because that means I never have to visit Cranmere Pool again! TFTC

Fortunately an easy find (by hubby as per the norm) at GZ.
Last time we came here he had saif he wouldn’t be sorry if he never came again.
However, the conditions underfoot are much improved, we are only carrying daysacks and not camping gear, and its been an enjoyable walk so far across the normally quite difficult terrain.
Only a short hop across a dry "pool" to the virtual from here

I wasn't initially hopeful about getting this one, as the website wasn't working for me this morning and I couldn't access the coordinates. However I happened to be in contact with the CO while at the Pool, and he was able to find me the coordinates. Thanks Dave! A little bit of bog-dodging required to get here from the letterbox but soon got there and found the nice big cache. [:D] TFTC

The third Open cache of the day, found quickly, 6.5 miles into my 14 mile walkabout on the northern moor.
Took the opportunity to sign the visitor's book in the Cranmere Pool letterbox before heading off towards Great Kneeset.

A very wet walk from the east, the pool seems to be about 2 miles across now!!! But very pleased to find this one as it was one of the main targets for the day.
Went across and stamped the letterbox OK, then tried to find the Groundspeak cache here, in which we were singularly unsuccessful!
Late in the day now, so from here we headed straight north to the Ockerton Peat pass caches, instead of our original itinerary to the west.
An Amberel TOP CACHE http://www.amberel.com/topcache.htm , a good size box, clean and dry, well stocked and in an iconic location, it ticks all the boxes . And spent one of my precious recommendation points on this one too .
Thanks for the cache,
