I suppose it got to be Hippo's Below. We were so close but the cache has moved and isn't where the description says it is  >:(

BUT we are going to put it right tomorrow  ;D

I hope so  ;D

I guess my most annoying one was on "The Wool Trade - Snowshill" Multi  :o

It was back in the days where I thought ALL caches were at the published coords. I thought a Multi was just a box with multiple compartments  :D

And even worse at the coords there is a tree, hollow at the back, and spent more than an hour searching, before frustratingly having to give up. Went back a few days later and the same thing happened.

Of course, later I found out that Multi's aren't at the published coords. And when setting, and later maintaining, Snowshill Scramble, I acquired the coords for the final location. An obvious tree.

And a DNF. And another DNF on the maintenance run  >:(

I don't think I'll ever find that cache  :'( Very annoying on every occasion  :D

I think mine was Below Above - Multi 1 when I had equipment failure :( I was on a roll that day and was hoping to get a second FTF on the Below Above series and complete the then currently active Below Above caches.

It is still the only Below Above that I haven't done :(

After yesterday I have a different nomination

British Library

A fantastic multi set in the British Library, you have to wonder around the whole library gathering clues, then go outside to find another clue to where the cache is hidden inside the library. I spent 90 minutes gathering the clues and then a further 30 minutes looking outside for a container that was missing. I suppose the good news is that I have done the hard work and the next visit will be much quicker.
