Cache No 883 – Jubilee_2

Another cache had appeared in my lunchtime caching zone, it had actually appeared a couple of weeks before and I hade been a four or five prevous to see if I could find it – okay one time I ended up on the wrong path and couldn’t get to the GZ for a steep banking and another time I found the path to it completely blocked by a lorry unloading stuff at a building site, but I had struggled to find the cache (so much I had actually logged a DNF)

19th October 2010 – Jubilee_2 GC2FQXX – cache #883
I read the clue to say that it was behind a tree and that you didn’t have to leave the path. Well that severely limited the possibilities for a hiding place, even if you stretched the not leaving the bath to not climbing over walls but maybe going up the banking at the side of the path there were only a half dozen possible trees. The provious cachers who had found it had reported that it was a log book well wrapped up in plastic but not an actual cache container, the only things I could see wrapped up behind the trees were bags of doggy doo’s!
Some people had found it after I had failed a couple of times, so it must have been there, but where I don’t know. When I eventually did find it it was not behind a tree, but under a couple of stones and was now in a proper clicp-lock box, so I have to assume that the cache had been changed… Strangely when I logged it I re-read the hint and found it didn’t say ‘behind tree’, but said ‘behind three’ – not sure what that refers to, perhaps the number on the lampost near it… but anyway the cache was found, though where it originally had been hidden I don’t know
