After that minor disappointment I headed into Benfield Nature Reserve on the trail of what promised to be a suitably sized container for dropping a tape. I wasn't disappointed although the box was a little damp inside but I always double-wrap my tapes/cds in ziploc bags for extra protection.
At this stage the sun was still beaming and my energy levels were up for the first time in ages (screw you 60 hour working weeks) so I was keen to stay out. Located this one not too far away but the cache itself was only large enough for a small log book. Seems to be mention of an additional box nearby in the notes however, I wonder did I miss something. Further up the track my GPS beeped again but between the suspicious looks and every dog that passed pissing against the marker I decided to avoid it. Couldn't have been much more than a nano anyway? I didn't check.
By this stage I was really in the mood for a proper walk so I headed off in the direction of Devils Dyke (didn't realise it was so close actually) with the intention of locating this and this cache. The latter is gone sadly and the former requires a rethink in terms of tools to access it.
With only one tape deposited I began to feel like the day was a little wasted so I thought I'd try for one last cache in the area. Expending the last bit of energy I had left (after not eating since lunchtime) I located this chap. An awesome spot but once again too bloody small for a tape.
Good fun though. Was pretty sore the next day from all the climbing which is always a good sign.
