Caches No’s 6252 to 6282 – London Calling 2023 Part 2

The Friday of the weekend there was event in the morning near Kings Cross, so I decided to head there, there were a few caches on the way, especially the way I went !
After that I had arranged to meet some of the other Leeds cachers in the the afternoon to go to the Postal Museum and ride the underground mail rail. Then we went down to the first official event by the London Calling committee at St Pauls Cathedral…
And then finally I headed back up to Euston Station to meet Angel78 who was coming down from the Midlands after work.

Caches No’s 6207 to 6251 – London Calling 2023 Part 1

My major concern with this trip to London was public transport… I had a train booked at 12:15 from Leeds Station, and two ways to get there, either the X84 bus, or a bus to Menston Station and the train from there.

Best get on with it then !

Caches No’s 6152 to 6175 – Filling The Grid – Completely

I’ve often said that the only way I will fill January on the grid is to have an event every day so I can get a smiley sat in the pub, as it turned out I didn’t need to do it that way

I had a list of all the local (ish) Lab caches and other caches and they tallied up with the number of days left to fill, so it was a practical proposition that wasn’t going to be to hard to do
