CITO and NFC

At the ridge beyond Mt Penang and Baxter Correctional facilities, lies the cache ‘Correctional Views’, but rather than provide views of the Correctional centres, as I walked the fire trail toward GZ, I was greeted with views down the hill toward Gosford. The cache description and logs all talked about there being a lot of…

Toponymy and Pioneers

Springfield is one of the most common place names in the English-speaking world…there are 5 in Australia alone (1 in each of NSW, QLD and SA, and 2 in Victoria), and a quick search of the interweb tells me there are 35 American States where you will find a Springfield; and another 15 in the…

Ancient Artifacts

After school today, Geokid-7 (aka Jorja) was keen to go look for treasure, making it clear she wanted to find either one that was in “someone’s front yard”, or one that was “big with lots of tyo treasure”…I picked the latter – front yard hides are few and far between, and the only one left…

Checking the caches in the area, I was surprised there were only 2…but looking further it would seem Cache Owners in these parts are worried about Muggles, because there were another 7, but all premium…

Got there in the end

This morning I finally got the chance to go have another hunt for the ‘Cycle of Life’ container that eluded me earlier this week…. Having been to GZ already, it was a straightforward walk in, and armed with the additional hints from the CO and other cachers, I knew what I needed to do once…

Gateways to Gosford

The last few days have been wet and rainy, which means I haven’t been able to go up the hill to try find ‘The Cycle of Life’ (I didn’t want to slip and fall while clambering around at cliff edges!)….but without any finds for a number of days, slight withdrawals were starting to kick in.…
