Treasure Hunting aka Geocaching

In any case, it’s outdoors and it’s fun. And it uses gadgets which is even better. I’ve actually hidden my first cache already, albeit locally, but then I need to be able to maintain it if needs be. There’s a public footpath by the farm at the top of our road that leads to the Country Park (former reservoir) which puts that within toddler walking distance too, so I plan to place some more soon.
On a recce to find suitable hiding locations we popped down the road into North Derbyshire to Eckington (Ecki-thump-ington) Woods and decided we might as well carry on and locate a nearby cache that was showing on Heath’s iPhone. The ideal placement of a cache is nearby to a scenic spot, viewpoint or place of interest:
