We made our start by leaving ITeC and catching the bus to the station, then a bus to Blackpill, going in two teams heading in the direction where Michael chose our first caches in ITeC, we made it fair that we could all find a cache each and sign a log book each, our team decided that the caches were too far so we ended up going to other ones that were nearer.
Our first cache was awkward, it was under a tunnel with a river going through it, Dan volunteered to get that one, I couldn’t see what it was properly as our team were on the other side of the river, I could see from a distance that it was a medium sized cache, Dan said their was just a pencil in it with a log book.
The next one was Ye Old Man Of Clyne, for it’s description it said it was in a tree with three trunks, it took quite a while to find but Stella eventually found it, it was a small wooden face with just a log book inside.
The third cache was a easy one, Ben found it under a tree, the description said it was in a hole under a tree next to the path, it was a large box containing a few prizes, there was chalk in it and we wrote Swansea ITeC on the rock by the tree.
Our fourth was another easy one and found by Dan, it was next to a old chimney, Stella said they couldn’t find it before because the grass was long, this time the grass was short and there was just a broken slab next to the chimney, so it was quite obvious to look there and also i signed the log book for this one.
The fifth and final cach was found by me, it was a big muddy hill to walk up so the team stayed back while I went up with Stella, it was a large screw top container under a tree with branches covering it, Stella had the app and pointed out the tree while i searched for it, there were a few things in it, I took a large plastic paperclip with me because it seemed like the only good thing in there.
There was one we couldn’t find which was located under a bridge, apparently it was located in a hole under there, the other team gave us tips about it, they said you have to get a stick and poke things but we still couldn’t find it so eventually we went to a different cache. There was another one we couldn’t find because the app was changing the location on the gps.
