Weekend Away Part II: A Sunday Stroll – Caches No’s 389 – 394

18th April 2010 – Hutton Millennium Walk #11 GC255FD – Cache #389
A nice Sunny Sunday morning so Angel78 and I decided to go and find some caches near where we were staying, I thought this was an easy 2.5 mile walk, it turns out I had got mixed up and this was a 4.5 mile walk up a quite steep hill, which we didn’t really want to do in the sun and in the amount of time we had available, so we ended up doing half the Hutton millenium walk !
This first cache was the nearest one to the place we found to park… parking was not easy in the village. The cache was hidden under a rock by a fence post

18th April 2010 – Hutton Millennium Walk #9 GC255F9 – Cache #390
We had to miss out the next cache on the walk as it was in the corner of the sports fiend, where a Sunday morning junior football game was going on so there were loads of people about and we coldn’t stop to look for the cache.
So we went on tho the next, hidden underneath a stile, a small stile with not much room underneath to hide a cache… but it still was quite a task to find it !

18th April 2010 – Hutton Millennium Walk #6 GC255F2 – Cache #391
Another stile and another cache hidden underneath

18th April 2010 – Hutton Millennium Walk #7 GC255F3 – Cache #392
This one took a while to find, base of a big tree the clue said… what it didn’t say was which big tree. We searched about 5 or six before we found the right one.
Reading the logs it seemed that we were not the only ones out caching round Hutton that morning, as some other cachers had signed and timed their log entry to be just 15 minutes earlier

18th April 2010 – Hutton Millennium Walk #8 GC255F5 – Cache #393
The stickoflage was pretty obvious with this one when we got near it, we had caught up quite a bit of time on the other cachers as their log said they had signed only 4 minutes previously

18th April 2010 – Hutton Millennium Walk #12 GC255FE – Cache #394
We decided to walk down to the road and then back to the car at this point, pssing one last cache. As we came out of the wood we could see the other cachers a few hundred yards away just going out onto the road… A very narrow busy road with tall close hedges at the side which seemed to be eaters of wing mirrors judging by the number of them broken in the hedge bottom !
The other cachers must have gone into the garden centre for refreshment as we never caught up with them… the last cache we did was another stile hiding another cache
