With Shelli taking Eleni out for the day for her Birthday on Sunday, Alice, Elisa, Asri and I had to find something to do with ourselves: geocaching! A fantastic idea as the weather was looking as though it was going to last for the rest of the weekend
The girls wanted to do another geocache walk so I found another multi-cache route not too far from home. After we’d done some food shopping we packed our boots into the car, drove the short distance to the start of the route, and off we went into the woods.
We had a brilliant time hunting for the caches in the woods! That said, we didn’t find two of the caches: numbers 2 and 5.
Number 2 was impossible to find, even with the hint. After spending a good 10 minutes looking for it with no success we moved on. Fortunately the girls weren’t too upset about not finding it – phew!
The grid reference for number 5 was exactly on the point where a tree had been freshly cut down. We looked around to see if the cache was anywhere to be seen but alas no.
Other than that the girls did a brilliant job of finding the other caches and were really pleased with themselves.
All in all a great couple of hours out in the woods!
Below are details related to each of the seven caches on this walk. Left-click on the cache title (e.g. Cache 1) to show the details for that specific cache.
Each cache has its position (Degrees and Minutes, and British Grid Reference) and a clue on where to find them if you’re having trouble.
The caches are also marked on the route map below, but be warned, this may not be 100% accurate so it would be best to use it more as a guide.
As not everyone would want to see the clues immediately, they’ve been set up so that they’re not instantly visible. You have to left-click on the “Hint” button to show the clue; left-click it again to hide it.
