Thought we were looking for a FBM but once we realised it was a Bernstein, it was a quick find.

Bagged as YSM0614 Beer FBM AUX 1 Berntsen. This was supposed to be the last of the day yesterday, however as we arrived after dark we decided to save it until daylight, good job as we thought we were looking for an FBM but once we realised it was a Berntsen, it was a quick find. #1 day#3 - On the road again Total day#2 #11 Total day#1 #13

Visited as YSM614 at end of excellent geocaching day in the area. Dark by this time but luckily some cyclists had stopped here, and they kindly shone their superb headlights on to the FBM so I could take a photo with my iPad [has no flash]. Easily to find in grass not far from base of wooden FP post on a quiet road corner, and can park within feet!

Clearly visable next to the Paizen Lane sign post. Screws missing from cap and bolt head doesn't seem that firm.

Currently it is easily found as the grass had been trimmed by Ann and Brian. It started to rain whilst here so I quickly took a picture and got back into the car.

Found as YOSM 614. Parked close by and found the Berntsen in the grass about a metre from left side of the gate.

After a visit to the Lyme Bay Winery we had a drive past here on route to Exmouth. The Berntsen was a nice quick find, although it appears that the ants have taken up residence.

Easy find having foreknowledge of where it was, a few prods with trusty prodder found it under a thin covering of grass etc. Cap is not secured, cleaned out the rim but still not seating properly.

A synch to find as someone has previously cleared all the undergrowth. I was looking forward to a good hunt for it and had gloves/secateurs to hand - but it was there for the spotting. My first Bernsten.

This one took some searching for. I was beginning to think that the finger post had been moved. I then looked at the previous finders photo and did some more kicking and prodding and there it was under this years vegetation growth.

My first Berntsen. Almost parked on top of it - right under f/p fingerpost, and clear of vegetation. Cover plate was not fixed (screw has gone), so had a peak inside (full of ants), but not possible to secure cover now due to build up of soil. Suspect it's only a matter of time before it 'disappears'.

On the 4th of Nov 2010 I could not find it. Took measurements the lot. Today could see it from car window. Top came away in hand. Put it back as best I could.

On the corner of the road by a field gate. Grown over with grass when we got there, but Chris soon found it.

Very easy at the moment. Also tried to screw down, but no luck - even peeked inside.

Visited this when I was out on a bike ride with the father in law.We had to kick around in the grass for a moment to find it.I had seen the photos from previous peoples visits so had a good idea were to look.The top is still loose but even armed with the universal bike fixing tool we could not do anything about this (the pump was no help either).ELV145m

Much easier than the FBM down the road! The top plate was loose. Tried to screw it down properly, but couldn't.

My first berntsen and my thanks to 'Iainmac' for the photos which ensured I hit the right spot. Nothing else to say really - I only came here to turn one of those blue spots red!

Probably the dullest photo I've ever taken....!
