Caches No’s 4760 to 4812 – CITCOT does Africa

Caches No’s 4760 to 4812 – CITCOT does Africa

There is a set of caches to the west of Milton Keynes, the Flags of all Nations series, 249 puzzle caches, all easy to solve as they are based on the letters in the name of the country whose flag is shown in the description, you just have to work out whose flag it is (and I have never heard of some of the countries/states that are in the 249). They are divided into 5 loops basically by continent, and we had determined to do some the Sunday after the Mini Geocoin Fair.

We couldn’t do them all in a day, so we decided upon the African loop (with a couple of caches from other loops where they met the Africa loop.

23rd June 2019 – Care in the community on tour invites you. GC897GD – cache #4760
First of all we held an event – coffee and cakes in a local garden centre tea room. I’m on the photograph – I must have been there

23rd June 2019 – AAA 3 GC7BCDJ – cache #4761
Most of CITCOT were camping at nearby Pear Tree Farm, so while waiting for them to get their collective acts together I wandered down the road for this cache

On the first Sunday of Summer CITCOT went caching…. around Africa…
We parked at Thornborough Village hall and started with Number 3, as that is the logical place to start

From here on I mainly did copy and paste logs because the caches were much of a muchness so there was nothing special to write about most of them… so I will just post the pictures as there is nothing much else to say

There was a Summer Fayre going on at the School so Coinkezza grabbed the cache from under the eyes of the Army Cadets who were marshalling the car park… then we walked down the road and sat under the bridge to eat some lunch, then returned up the road back to continue our African oddysey at number 18 – returning the cache on the way

At this one I split from the group as I still had a three and a half hour drive home (that turned into a four and a half hour one, but that’s another story) so rather than turn towards number 45 and do the inner loop I headed for number 1 and my car

23rd June 2019 – #002 Flags of All Nations GC6CJGV – cache #4811
Last of the flags for me on this visit – and as I haven’t been to Milton Keynes since 1986 I don’t know when, if ever I will get back to do some more of them !

23rd June 2019 – St MAry’s Thornborough GC37NFQ – cache #4812
We were parked at the village hall next to the church so it would have been a pity to miss this nearby cache out
