Caches No’s 2490, 2491 & 2492 – Cache Resurrection

Caches No’s 2490, 2491 & 2492 – Cache Resurrection

There are challenge caches that require you to find a cache no-one has visited for 12 months before you can log them, and the nearest one of these is also the nearest one of a particularly uncommon Difficulty / Terrain rating which you need to have found for another challenge cache. So I have been looking out for these long unfound caches, I have had my eye on a handful, but due to the poor weather I hadn’t been out to any and had been beaten to 3 of them, a 4th was C++ that I had visited but failed to find on my birthday, and there was another I had lined up as well

6th May 2013 – A Panoramic One GC1JDEZ – cache #2490
A cache that I had failed to find the previous weekend. This time I had looked at the spoiler pic… and found the cache with ease

6th May 2013 – C++ GC – cache #2491
Another cache I had failed to find 10 days earlier, after discussions with the CO I went back for another look for the cache… and despite extensive searching failed to find the cache…
Photographic evidence of the search was sent to the CO and he has allowed me to claim the cache as a find despite it being missing – I can’t really claim this cache as a resurrection as the CO archived it immediately after my ‘found’ log


6th May 2013 – Marbles GC1A78T – cache #2492
Yay, resurrecting a cache not found for 18 months… Previous log was Nov 2011
Except I am not the first person to visit and sign the log since then… I am not even the first person to visit in the last week or so
I’ve no doubt that LazyDayDream will catch up on her logging soon, so this won’t count as a resurrection cache either


After this I didn’t find GC3CDJ8 Last Train to Addingham – A cache by a short viaduct over a steep woodland gully, GPS signal accuracy :- non-existent at GZ, Ground conditions :- totally carpeted with wild garlic
I didn’t know there was a spoiler picture until I got back, I might have found the cache with it, but there is so much wild garlic growing that you would be lucky to see any stone that may hide a cache
