Our earthcache The Leper Stone (Newport Sarsen Stone) has just been published!
After reading sumajman’s blog post about hiding his first earthcache I was suitably inspired to get off my of bum and sort out the listing for the one I had been planning to do for months.
I had initially delayed doing it as I had read on forums that people had real difficulty getting earthcaches approved as they were very strict on permission. But in sumajman’s blog post it seemed like he hadn’t had a problem. Right, time to get this idea in motion! I carefully did a write up and thoroughly researched it. On Saturday we were passing the spot on our way to London so armed with the GPSr and the DSLR for the day I was able to grab some coords and some good piccies and submitted the cache on Sunday.
I received an email from the reviewer a day later as there was a problem. My questions seemed a bit too easy and the reviewer thought you could get away with not visiting it to answer all questions. Also, my wording of taking a photo of the stone was slightly bad as it implied that I required the person’s face in the photo. I amended this so it’s a photo of the person with the stone, or a photo of the GPSr with the stone. No requirement for a face! I also changed one of the questions.
So let me educate you all a little bit about what our earthcache is.
