Hi Scott - welcome back! Some answers - not really in 5 years - more geocaches/hybrids about, less handcuts :(, more cliplocks, less pots GPS use has increased dramatically - in line with a bit of a deterioration in clue quality I think (but then I'm a purist!)

Hi Noddy,
Boundary stones - yep 'W' - we were given an extract (fig S1 Brewer). The benchmark I was referring to is on Windy Post. Couldn't see either til they were pointed out & then had to rub peat in to photo. :)

Well we squelched over to Fur Tor South, watched a couple of dogwalkers on the track, hopped from foot to foot getting damper, checked on Frank's box, got damper still, wandered off & found a box, scampered back - still no-one. 10 to 12 decided well we've never been before - perhaps people actually ...
