Friday finds.

I woke up early on Friday, checked the geocaching website and there was a new cache near me – Well,Well,Well which had not been found. A quick load of the gpx onto the pocketpc, the coordinates punched into the gps and I jumped into the car to go find it. I think it took me longer to find the carparking space that it did to find the cache. It was well (haha) hidden but I eventually found it. Opening the lid, there were quite a few goodies, probably freebies from reps of people visiting the hider but I didn’t mind and came away with a nice First To Find prize of a pen. Nice and heavy with a blue neon type light if you push the pen top.
I also managed, at my third attempt, to find Jeff’s puzzle #1. This cache had plagued me for a while as I just could not find it. My streets and trips drawings gave me about 4 different places to search and when I was on the ground, there were loads of places a cache could be hidden. On my second visit I used the projection capabilities of the gps and was confused to see that one of the points was about 5 miles away from where I was standing. I went back home, ran some more projections in the gps and plotted them onto street and trips, and again came up with two points 5.6 miles apart….hmmmmm.
After a tipoff I used a palm emulator to solve the problem and with some coordinates that now matched from both sets of projections I went back to the site on Friday evening and found the cache.
So Friday was a good day – but now I have 1 temporarily archived cache and 4 multi’s in my nearest 10 unfound. So the next lot of caches will take slightly longer to do.
