Caches No’s 1332 to 1337 – Even More New Lunchtime Caches

Caches No’s 1332 to 1337 – Even More New Lunchtime Caches

A holiday in a cache free environment (Marmaris in Turkey) meant that I didn’t do any caching for a month, and in that month several new caches had been placed in striking distance of where I work so I could go out at Lunchtime and find them

4th October 2011 – A bit sticky GC3293Q – cache #1332
A quick find on a very windy lunchtime up on the moors.

4th October 2011 – SHIPLEY GLEN VIEW GC32936 – cache #1333
Last November I found a newly put out cache called Shipley Glen View under the next rock along to that which this one is hidden under, a cache that has gone and now been replaced with this new one… I think I may even have found the previous incarnation as well !

7th October 2011 – Gate to Nowhere GC3293E – cache #1334
It took me far too long to find this cache, I mean there’s a gate across a bridleway, there is nothing else in the vicinity. so you have only two gatepsots and the gate itself to search around, and it still took about 10 minutes to find the cache

20th October 2011 РL&LC РVictoria Road   GC35A6Z Рcache #1335
This cache took two attempts. There are a couple of benches nearby which are often used at lunchtimes by people from the nearby office buildings to sit and eat their sandwiches on, and to feed the swans and ducks in the canal. The first time I went to find it there were people about all over the place, but the second time the place was strangely quiet and I only had to avoid one couple walking their dog along the tow path

24th October 2011 – A Kiss for Homer GC36CBH – cache #1336
This was a newly put out cache that had been placed only a day before I found it and had had two DNF’s and a FTF who had had an extra hint from the cache hider. In the FTF log he mentioned that he had seen a flash of red that led him to the cache, so Iwent along the path, to the trees where the cache was supposed to be and then just looked for something red when I got there and quickly found it.

 

25th October 2011 – Maggie’s got gas GC36CBX – cache #1337
With a name like this I was expecting the cache to be hidden by one of the concrete gas main markers… and I wasn’t wrong. I did have to hang around a bit before grabbing the cache to avoid a dog walker whose young labrador was carrying a stick that was bigger than he was – I wouldn’t have liked to throw it for the dog to fetch !
