Caches No’s 3104 to 3108 – Queens on the Road to the Station

Caches No’s 3104 to 3108 – Queens on the Road to the Station

A new series of 3 caches and a bonus had been recently put out in Bramhope 4 miles from home which I thought I would have a go at.
First off I didn’t look for GC5074Q Tudor Queens – Mary I – I made a decision soon after I started caching that I wouldn’t be happy with someone poking about the garden hedge / fence / wall at the bottom of my garden for a cache so it was only right that I didn’t going to look for caches in other peoples garden wall / fence / hedge.
So this one got put on my ignore list… When I got home from reading other peoples logs I realised that the bonus cache was going to be on the same path as the three normal caches and that even though I hadn’t got the full numbers to work out the co-ordinates I do know where it is going to be hidden… I’ll go and get it one day

8th April 2014 – Tudor Queens – Lady Jane Grey GC50743 – cache #3104
The caches were on a well used path that is well used and potentially a water course when it rains so it obviously gets pretty muddy at times, fortunately the weather has been dry for week or two so it wasn’t too muddy or slippery which was fortunate as I was wearing shoes with no grip at all. The cache was a relatively easy find with the hint as there were only a couple of places where the metal fence met the wooden tree

8th April 2014 – Tudor Queens – Tudor Queens – Elizabeth 1 GC5073F – cache #3105
Just my luck… I’m sat there on the bench, cache in hand filling in the log and a council workman with a big brush comes and starts sweeping up around the water trough under which the cache is hidden… so I had to leave with the cache and return after he’d gone to replace it

8th April 2014 – Off The Old Road No.6 GC4XJ2J – cache #3106
A nice quick find – exactly what I expected to find, some people had got confused by the hint of ‘a little home mover’ but to me it was always going to be a nano in a snail shell magnetically stuck to a metal post… and rather an interesting metal post, preumably it marks where electricity cables are located

8th April 2014 – Off The Old Road No.7 GC – cache #3107
A nice day for looking at the view… I can see my house from here !
It would be interesting to see where cachers park for this cache – as there isn’t anywhere sensible to park for several hundred yards in either direction (and no I didn’t park in a sensible place myself)

9th April 2014 – Sidetracked – Guiseley – Micro Train GC4ZR76 – cache #3108
A replacement cache for my find #1012 (3 years and 3 weeks ago…) which was archived after the train was vandalised and then removed.
No trouble getting it, there was a bloke sitting in his car nearby but fortunately a tree hid me from his view !
