[edit] Plans

Drive there on way to elsewhere and try and be stealthy while meandering down someone's driveway.

I have sussed a cache only 50 m away in a neighbouring park. I doubt I will be able to see either from each other, but I'll have a look.

[edit] Expedition

Very simple. I found the cache first behind some flax bushes at the entrance of a small strip of bush. The strip of bush was actually disguising a computer peripheral burial ground amongst waste of other types. Not clean.

I then wandered down some randoms driveway, straight to the location identified in the satellite imagery, and nonchalantly stood and took photos of hash location, GPS and cache location. While the cache was only 50 m away - 2 fences, a backyard, and some large shrubs stood between the two locations. Good enough for an honourable mention.
