Roundabout Way to the Banks – Caches No’s 367 – 369

13th April 2010 – Wharfedale In a Roundabout Way – Burley East GC24TJM – Cache #367
Although I had found two of the feeder caches and the bonus cache for this series 3 weeks ago I still hadn’t got round to doing the other two feeder caches – cos one of them had gone missing.
Anyway, someone put another cache out in the area, so I made the detour to clear them up one day on a detour on the way home from work
This first one was easy enough to spot, being a hamburger in the base of a multistemmed bush… but difficult to get to, being in the base of a multistemmed bush, I have scratches and scrapes to testify to this difficulty !

13th April 2010 – Wharfedale In a Roundabout Way – Burley West GC24TJR – Cache #368
This cache was originally sited the other side of a road, but went missing before anyone even found it… which maybe isn’t a bad thing as it’s a very busy road which had to be crossed to get from the only parking spot to the original site.
Now you can park within a few feet of the cache and you are less likely to be observed, you are just wandering around stretching your legs, whereas on the other side of the road you were definitely up to something – especially when you are pulling a plastic hot dog out of the undergrowth !

13th April 2010 – A Trucker Delight – A660 – Cory GC26HQQ – Cache #369
This was a new cache put out the day before I found it, reasonably easy to find and only observed by the neighbours over the wall.
I leant back on the wall to sign the log and was nudged by one of the locals who obviously thought I was there to see her.

14th April 2010 – Yeadon Banks GC24THY Cache # 370
I sit at work staring out of the window at the hill known locally as Yeadon Banks. So one sunny lunchtime I drove to the bottom and walked up the hill to find the cache, there was once a field boundary wall, now replaced with a wire fence and the stones almost all removed except for the odd foundation stones still in the ground… the cache is under one of them
