It started out with a simple stop off on the way home to find a newly published cache in the South Parklands, The Poet of Greenbridge. It was a simple walk into the parklands but nothing is ever simple.
We were hunting around again in the obvious spot, this time using the iPhone to take a photo in the opening – ah, there it is. As I extracted another pair walked up, it was Sandalwood Cottage. Looks like we have a flash mob.
Glenn and Mike had a ladder and asked if I would like to tag along to do a couple of the up high caches around Adelaide. Little did I know that they were looking for someone to do the altitude work (they reckon I have work skills for the task – they are probably right ).
We tackled a couple of the nearby tree caches in other parts of the Parklands, The Magic Far Away Tree and Classic Songs II: U and UR Hand – Pink. The Far Away Tree was fairly straight forward even with the large numbers of muggles arriving for the nearby Netball.
U and UR Hand – Pink was a little different. There were 2 large trees at GZ and we picked the southern one. Up went the ladder and up I went 6 metres and down came the blinding rain. After a few minutes of getting soaked we decided it must be the other tree.
After a few circles of looking up, I looked on the ground and said “what about this one”. The cache had fallen out of the tree and was on the ground. After signing the log we put it back in the tree but certainly not from where it came from.
After circling the block trying to find an entrance into the area, it was a relatively easy find and the end of an easement. Finally Geocache #6000 was in hand. Thanks Glenn and Mike for joining me on this milestone.
