Caches Nos. 82 – 87 – Get My Kicks on Route 66 ?
A Saturday evening stroll along a popular cache sequence on the banks of the Leeds-Liverpool canal. The canal towpath is designated path number 66 in the National Cycle Network
Being me I parked my car at the wrong end and did them in reverse order
August 29th 2009 –  Canal Capers#6-Shady Tree GC1X9HM – Cache #82
August 29th 2009 –  Canal Capers#5-Elderberry Wine GC1X9HH – Cache #83
The first two along the path were easy enough to find, checking the log books I was about the 4th person to walk the path caching the same day 
From this cache I collected the Travel Bug  TB2RQ2E – Mildred the Monster
August 29th 2009 –  Canal Capers#4-Stone Throne GC1X9HA – Cache #84
This is a cache in an odd location, someone has built a stone chair with a small fireplace, I guess it’s used by a fisherman doing night fishing as it’s only big enough for one person to sit on it and there’s nowhere for anyone else to get around the fire when it’s lit… and it does show signs of use
At this cache I dropped off the SPOOKY travel bug, as this stone throne is quite a spooky place 
August 29th 2009 –  Canal Capers#3-Towpath fun GC1x9H3 – Cache #85
August 29th 2009 –  Canal Capers#1-Bridge 216 GC1X9GT – Cache #86
August 29th 2009 –  Canal Capers#2-Fifty Percent GC1X9GX – Cache #87
I couldn’t locate #2 first time I passed, although I knew where to look I couldn’t search too hard for it as there was someone on one of the boats moored a few yards away, but on the way back after getting #1 I had chance to find it easily enough
