The day following my trip to Rugby I had another gap in my calendar to fill so had to decide which cache to go for, in the end I was swayed by a new cache that had been placed the day before, on Ilkley Moor. It had been found the day before too so there wasn’t a First-To-Find up for grabs, just a relatively flat walk along from the nearest parking spot
23rd February 2013 – Clifton Caching Chat GC458AJ – cache #2364
The 130 mile drive to Rugby may seem a long way to go just for a caching event, but as I’ve known the organiser (Adam – UKCacheMag) since the mid 90’s long before geocaching was invented, and as it was he who got me into caching in the first place when he told me of his exploits back in 2008 finding his first few caches.

Trouble is that the thumbnail on the post is a nonstandard bit of coding that is just on this theme so I may have to just adapt and improve this theme to keep it
One of the challenges of Geocaching is to find a cache on all 366 dates, and to assist in that your profile on the main website has a grid of all the dates and fills the boxes in with the number of caches you have found on each date. Adam (UKCacheMag) has decided that this year he will fill his grid up with at least one cache per day… So I decided that I should do something similar too… although he has filled January and I only have two January days done as I don’t like cold, mud, rain, snow etc so hibernate in the Winter !
