After starting our geocaching morning with the intensely fascinating experience of The Lost Pharaoh, it was going to be tough to match the experience – and I don’t think we could have had more of a contrasting experience than by visiting Deadwood Forest (GCTWV2) by Shifter Brains.
Located on a boundary between a construction zone and a dry shrubby forest, and well-hidden in behind a pile of deadwood created by the clearing of the land for the construction zone. You can’t help but think this cache won’t be here in another year or so if growth of this new industrial estate continues.
A wall of deadwood and other debris separated us from GZ – so rather than getting straight to GZ, we sought out an alternate – slightly longer, but much easier route which lead us into GZ from the west – to discover the resting place of the cache was like a little oasis in amongst the harsh dense shrubs and deadwood debris.
We’d left our swappables in the car, and it was going to be a real ordeal to go back, and then return to the cache – so we decided on this occasion to just sign the log and not make any swaps.
