Regent Street (gCY5AF) is another in the Monopoly series of geocaches by cphoenix.
We’ve managed to pick up quite a few of these now. This one is listed as a “micro” – but I’d personally call it a small cache because, despite the size of the container – there was room for a few small swaps – and of course, the Monopoly card itself.
Wolfie lands on Regent Street. Rent Owed.
This was a nice, handy, and relatively straightforward cache. There’s even a freeway exit for both north and southbound access very close by – so a great “park-and-grab” style geocache for anyone traveling between Sydney and Newcastle.
Thanks for the cache!
What better way to spend Australia Day than to go out for a spot of geocaching on the scenic Central Coast. Our first stop today was northbound on the F3 freeway where we visited Twins North (GC131DA) – a medium sized cache by the bower birds.
Twins North is so-called because it is near one of the two (twin) service centres on the F3 near Wyong – this being the one servicing the northbound traffic. It is a popular place for truck drivers to stop and have a rest – with there being ample parking for trucks.
A little homework was required for us to inconspicuously leave the car vehicle area and plan our way across the vast expanse of the truck parking area to the track that was to lead us down to the cache.
Before too long we closed in on GZ and walked in circles a few times, sniffing out for the cache until one of us eventually spotted it in fairly plain and easy sight. We must have looked right at it a few times – always seems to be the way!
On our way back to the car, Wolfie wanted to get his photo taken sitting on one of the truck trailers parked nearby – so we got this great shot of the little fella.
Time to continue our caching expedition.
On our way back from up north today we couldn’t resist the temptation of another easy geocache find at a convenient highway rest area.
Appropriately named, 12 Mile Creek South Bound Rest Area (GC128H7) by outdoorbloke is of course, at the rest area of that name – southbound on the Pacific Highway between Karuah and Raymond Terrace.
As luck would have it, as soon as we pulled up – so did a heap of muggles, so we found ourselves waiting in the car while they lined up and waited to make use of the temporary toilet facilities that had been installed here. It took about 15 minutes for the crowds to pass and we were out of our car and walking down a small discrete track as the GPSr guided us closer to the medium-sized cache at Ground Zero.
We found the container fairly quickly, signed the log – leaving behind a red gem and taking a yellow smiley face.
Wolfie swapping for a smiley face
Thanks outdoorbloke for another sensible cache in a handy location. We’re looking forward to getting further up the highway soon to find some more of your caches.
