Caches No’s 1310 to 1312 – New Lunchtime Caches

Caches No’s 1310 to 1312 – New Lunchtime Caches

The thing about Geocaching is that there are always old caches being removed and new ones being hidden, so that although I regularly clear the number of caches I can get to during lunchtime caching escapes from work, as soon as I do it new ones appear.

10th August 2011 – Border Stream GC31W3N – cache #1310
A cache hidden in the shrubbery on top of the wall around the local retail park, there is just by the cache a grill under which the stream for which the cache is named runs. The border in question being the border between Guiseley and Yeadon, which apparently runs straight through the Next shop (well underneath it anyway)

11th August 2011 – Esholt Bridge GC31CQH – cache #1311
When you are in the vicinity of a railway embankment / bridge, in a wood where the GPS coverage is a bit ropey a hint like ‘fencepost’ isn’t much help when there are about 20 within 20 yards. I was about to give up through lack of time to search (I had to get back to work) when I turned round to take one last look and spotted something that looked out of place, and found the cache.
I had just got it back in position when a Police Patrolman on a trials bike came along the path… I’m glad he wasn’t a few minutes earlier

12th August 2011 – The ‘Blue’ One GC31TWQ – cache #1312
A relatively easy cache at the side of the road, the worst thing about it was walking from the nearest parking spot back to the cache on a very narrow, windy road with stone walls at either side, no refuge for a pedestrian if a car came along too fast
