Did You Hide Your Flask on Meal Fell

1 08 2022

Just a quickie as I don’t have any forums to post this kind of thing on any more…

Did you hide a flask on Meal Fell to pick up later today (Mon 1 August 22)?  I ask as I found one which looked like it had been hidden to come back to but I couldn’t see a soul on the surrounding fells and it was late in the day so I’ve brought it home with me.

If you think it’s yours and want to claim it, tell me: where did you hide it and what does it look like?  Also what drink was in it?

On one of my winter nighttime photography excursions I found trekking skies, skins, probes and avalanche beacons. They had obviously fallen off someone’s sled and were partially covered in snow. I had a message put up on a Facebook group (I don’t have a Facebook account so had a friend do it). I had a call within a couple hours and was pleased to have the gear back into the hands of the owner. They were very happy and wanted to give me a weekend in one of their rental properties. I said it wasn’t necessary. They insisted on giving me something and bought me a $30 gift card to a local coffee shop. That was a few years ago, I remember thinking that Facebook thing might just catch on.

nice story – Facebook never caught on with me though – and Richard calls it ‘faceache’!

Have you found out whose it was yet? If not, you’ve got yourself a new flask, so maybe it was, as Jennifer says, a gift from the faeries. The timing seems uncanny after all. It’s funny how these things happen. A couple of winters ago our lad Nathan needed a new pair of wellies but we were avoiding going into shops owing to Covid. One day we drove out to Burton Dasset Hills near Banbury, a regular scenic jaunt for us. It was a very cold day and the place was pretty much deserted with no other cars around. But would you believe, there on the grass beside where we parked was a brand new pair of kids wellies, just one size bigger than Nathan takes! And they were black, which Nathan would like as he’s not a fan of gaudy pictures and patterns. We tried to find out who they belonged to with no success, so we adopted them, and with the addition of a thick pair of socks the new welly problem was solved! He’s still wearing them comfortably now. I do sometimes wonder whether there is something else at work out there, so if you haven’t heard from a claimant, enjoy your new flask! 😀

I find what happens for me is when I need to know something, either the day after I need to know it, but more often the day before I’m going to need to know it, I come across the information somehow. I’ve often mused on that one…

No-one has come back to me yet but I’ll have to give it a while. Mind you, nothing stopping me using it myself until that day as they’ll just have to wash it out.

You could assume it was left by the faeries and consider it a gift.

If no-one claims it, I certainly will be – especially after losing my good flask on that Scottish challenge recently!

Not hidden well enough apparently :o) Does ‘was in it’ meaning it’s now gone?

It did kind of look like it had been left deliberately to come back to but it was very late in the day and I couldn’t see anyone about. I kept looking back to the hill to see if anyone was jumping around in rage!

It is now empty as I tipped out the contents rather than carry them for the rest of the walk – there wasn’t a lot left anyway. Richard suggested it might be like festival goers nowadays who just leave their tents at the end of the festival – he says they might have dumped it when they finished it!
