Caches No’s 3936 and 3937 – Back in the saddle again

Strange to find that I haven’t used that title since 2012… I had this idea in my head that I used it for the first caches of every year, but I only used in for 2011 and 2012.
As with the last couple of years though my first cache of the year was a visit to the pub !

5th January 2016 – ‘uddersfield ‘ogmanay 2016 GC66Q7Y – cache #3936
First time I’ve been to the ‘ogmanay, even though this was I think the 6th time it has been held.
There were a lot of people there and the raffle took an age to get through as there were hundreds of prizes – not that I won anything worth the money I spent on tickets either !
There were people from the N Wales mega there, come all the way up from Chester / Wirral area to this event.
The raffle raised £275 for the Holme Valley Mountain Rescue group, so a nice sum for a worthy cause (geocachers sometimes do get ‘lost’ out on them thar hills !)

10th January 2016 – 70 not out! GC67AM2 – cache #3937
I’ll tell you the truth here… it seems odd to me that I have friends who are 70. I still think of myself as young – though I am nearer 70 than 30 myself !
But I doubt I would have such a wide age spread of friends if it wasn’t for Geocaching. Anyway, we had an Event at the Bagby Inn to celebrate the birthdays of Uggy (Val) and Mr China Doll (Brian) who were both 70 that week. We even had cake !
