Cache No. 3433 – Quiet Drinks GC5C7P9

Due to an agonisingly painful reccurence of the trapped nerve in my back, which had been grumbling on since February, my attempts to fill the caching calendar failed, the next blank days I had were the 7th and 8th September, but by then I was in severe discomfort and barely able to stand up, let alone walk or drive – well I couldn’t even sit down. On the 9th the Doctor was called for a home visit – no way could I get down to the surgery… And I was prescribed stronger painkillers and anti-inflammatories – which seemed to do the job of at least getting me moving again after a fashion because I was left with a numb sensation down my left leg and a limp because the nerves don’t fire the muscles to my left ankle so I can’t bend it with any force or weight on it.

23rd September 2014 – Quiet Drinks GC5C7P9 – cache #3433
A Fortnight after the Doctor’s visit later I went out socialising for the first time – to a caching event. Even the 10 mile drive to Harrogate was a trip into the unknown as I hadn’t been out that far for three weeks and wasn’t sure I could drive that far with a non working ankle, but it turned out to not be a problem (Thankfully !)
The event was to celebrate Goldfish58’s 10th anniversary of caching and her 2,000th cache (not exactly a ‘numbers’ cacher !) –  It was a pleasant evening with good company as always, as I’d not been able to do much caching in the weeks before it was nice to go out, get a smiley and talk about Geocaching and Geocachers
