September 6th 2010 – Canal Overflow GC2EEDD – cache #804
Another new cache, by another relatively new cacher. This one is within the distance I can get to at lunchtime from work, so when I got the email notification of it’s placing I popped out the next day to find it.
I parked the car, walked down the path to the canal and got almost to the cache without seeing anyone, then just as I came in sight of the canal overflow I came across a cyclist, a couple out for a walk, a man walking his dog and a boat chugging down the canal… Continue reading
30th August 2010 – Elephants Never Forget GC2E8FN – cache #803
A new cache, placed by a relatively new cacher, in an area already full of caches – the hillside opposite my house, there are currently 23 caches up there and there were some more that have been archived.

Monday evening, and although it was a bit damp I decided that I would go and do a set of caches around the nearby Chelker reservoir. The first cache of the walk was hidden under the stones of a stile Continue reading
Back on August 15th when I had got to 700 caches I sought of decided that I would attempt to get to 800 caches within 2 weeks – knowing that I would have the opportunity to do three good days caching over the next two weekends and had still enough time in the evenings to do a few caches before it got dark, so after the first of the weekend days I was over a third of the way towards my target.
The next day, Sunday, I was up early to do a few caches in the morning before an appointment I had in the afternoon.
A Saturday trip down to the Midlands gave me the opportunity to do drive by caches all the way home, in theory there were about 80 caches I could do that just involved criss-crossing the motorway by the nearest roads, but the amount of time taken up by each one was obviously going to determine how many I could do before it got too late and too dark to do any more
