2009-09-09 00:00 Amberel (552) - Found it
I found this cache while it was still a TerraCache. Rather like one of the caches I had done the day before, my first attempt found me close to the cache, yet far away. I did consider the direct route, but (wisely, I think) decided against it .
After backtracking, I eventually found it. And what a cache - a truly great cache in every sense of the word. The description says "Marine flare bottle". Well, I have a boat, and inside it I have a marine flare bottle full of marine flares and smokes. But it's not the same size as this one. This one wouldn't have disgraced itself on the QE2 .
TerraCaches have a wider range of cache ratings than OpenCaches. This cache earned my first ever maximum TerraCache rating of "superb", and it gets the top rating here of 6 out of 6 - if I could have given it 7 out of 6 I would .
It seemed almost curmudgeonly to not trade anything, given the extraordinary selection of items in the cache, but regrettably I had nothing left to leave in their place.
Thanks for a truly "superb" cache,
