Cache of the Month February 2020 – Amongst Ya Dirty Knees!

The month of February gets us down on our knees and crawling. Your GPS will get you to the entrance but the challenge is to overcome any fears you have about dark, confined spaces. It does not end here though as Amongst Ya Dirty Knees! can be a tricky cache to find.

The cache was placed on 7 th September 2003 by Gunnell & Pandaabear who owned it until February 2013 when it was transferred to Team Holden. In October 2019 the cache changed hands once again, passing to the current owner brisal5.

Ensure you heed the warnings on the cache page. There is also a detailed description of the location of the cache. Keep in mind this is an older style of cache so you might need to think outside of the box for this one. Why not grab a friend or two, a torch, get “Amongst Ya Dirty Knees” and head into the darkness? This will be a great adventure.

Seriously wow. What a brilliant cache!
But a 1:2 rating? Really?? Lots of DNFs seem to suggest those numbers should be larger!
This was the second of three caches planned for today with Grumpi68. The first had taken us a long way under Kent Town along First Creek. This one was going to have to do well to match that.
Well it did.
We found a good place to park and approached the entrance. Head first or legs first? Snake season. Hmmm. Legs with boots and thick jeans win.
In we go. Clouds of insects. Try not to breathe.
Quietly confident because we had seen a video which we thought would help.
But…
the video showed the right mine, but not the right cache! It’s not there!
Ok. Don’t panic. The recollection of all those DNFs are balanced a bit by the CO’s repeated assurances that it is still there.

Repeated.

Hmmmm.
Okay time to use all senses.
Look, touch, smell, listen. Okay maybe not taste.
Sixth sense?, spidey sense? common sense even?
Wait a minute. One sense has worked!
Oh wow. Here is the cache. Very impressed. That could have been missed for a long time. A long long time.

And it’s not the one in the video. But it is the right one. It all fits now.
That’s just got a fav point.
Dipped some TBs.
TNLNSL. A big TFTC 🙂
On to cache number 3. Now where would a Big Kahuna hide?

Wow, so we have to go in there? Off you go honey, I will wait in the car and start writing this log.
GeoH and Kaye got on their hands and knees and they were off into the darkness.
All you could see from the car was a pair of sandals sitting there waiting for their owner to come back out. Well, I hope they can come back out.”
“Oh here we go, 2 bodies emerging from the cave. Covered in dirt lol, but both smiling.
One dirtier than the other and spitting out the dirt lol.
TFTC and giving a fav point to this one”.

FAV POINT.

Inline with Geocaching SA’s goal of promoting the past-time of Geocaching is South Australia, each month the association will be highlighting a cache that warrants recognition. There are no specific criteria, and suggestions are welcome, but final discretion lies with Geocaching SA.
