Caches 1447 to 1450 – 29th February Caching

Caches 1447 to 1450 – 29th February Caching

There are caches that require you to have found at least one cache on all possible days of the year, so 366 caching days are needed. 2012 is a leap year and the first opportunity since I started caching to grab a cache on Feb 29th…
Now I’ve just got another 120 or so days to go caching on to complete the calendar… I hope I can do that before 4 more years pass

29th February 2012 – Airedale Way Walk – the second! GC3B2AY – cache #1447
I had to have a slightly extended lunchtime in order to go and grab this cache for my ‘Leap Cache’
It was fairly easy to find, but I’ve seen a few of this hider’s caches now and I know what to look for

29th February 2012 – Jerry but no Tom! GC3BDM7 – cache #1448
In the evening I had 15 minutes to kill in Yeadon, so I had a wander down to find this cache and another one nearby… both of which are best done when it’s outside business hours.
I didn’t have my GPS with me but I knew from the map and clue where to look, and so went straight to the right place… in the dark I was finding the cache by feel alone, and this cache doesn’t ‘feel’ all that nice !

29th February 2012 – Kirk Lane Interweb? GC39DWT – cache #1449
After that I wandered a little further down the road, again I knew from the map and clue where to look, and so went straight to the right place… well one of the possible right places, the cache itself was on the other one but easily spotted as it’s silhouette stood out in the lamplight

2nd March 2012 – 2 Fingers To You GC38J20 – cache #1450
It was lunchtime, and it was a nice day, so I had a drive out and had a wander along to this cache.
I do wonder whether the people in the farm house below will eventually get curious about the number of people who enter the field, fiddle about in the old wall and then leave the field again… it is in full view of their kitchen window after all !
