Caches No’s 5272 to 5278 – Historic Otley Lab Caches

Caches No’s 5272 to 5278 – Historic Otley Lab Caches

I got a message from a relatively new cacher Doodlemaster, whom I had known in my schooldays many years ago, not seen him for over 40 odd years, but he started appearing on the Facebook Caching forums and I recognised the name and the face in his photographs. Although he has moved away many years ago he had been given a set of Lab Caches and was putting them out in our home town, where I still live.

He asked me if I would test them out, which of course I was happy to do… do they count as one FTF or Five ?

With the Lab Caches Doodlemaster had put out a bonus cache, so of course that is deinitely an FTF to me, even though I found it before it was even published

23rd August 2020 – Down To The Waterline GC7NV72 – cache #5278
Although Social Distancing from Covid was continuing when I got the call from Richlay to join a team testing out a new Escape Room in Leeds I jumped at the chance, after all apart from a funeral I had not been out ‘socialising’ for almost 6 months… Following the succesful escape I popped just along the road to pick up this cache.
