Caches No. 33, 34 & 35 – More Walking by the River

June 18th 2009 – A Riverside Walk, Stumpy  GC1PD5K – Cache #33
A couple of days later I ventured out once more to find some more caches… although I had one cache missing I had enough of the co-0rdinates from the ‘A Riverside Walk’ sequence to find the bonus cache… this time I parked at the other end of the path and crossed the river by the footbridge there as the cache is only a few yards from the bridge

June 18th 2009 – Leeds Rd, Cul-de-sac  GC13JK8 – Cache #34
This is an interesting one to get being on a roadside on a very busy road… I don’t think the drivers were particularly interested in me, but there was a chap in a nearby house who was eyeing me up as I hung about in a furtive manner waiting for opportunities to grab and then replace the cache… I think he thought I was ‘casing the joint’ so to speak !

June 18th 2009 – A Road Anarchy A65 Riverside  GC1BMEP – Cache #35
I have grown to love cache descriptions that say ‘nearby parking is available at…’ There is nearby parking for this cache if you are going to the Indian Restaurant, or prepared to block a Works Entrance where access may or may not be needed out of normal working hours… I opted for a more polite parking spot and a few hundred yards walk… thig was it was getting dark by this time so I was glad the clue was definitive as to the location of the cache 🙂

Earlier in the evening I had attempted to find GC1J0FT “Flash Bang Wallop (What A Picture)” which is described as an easy find, but when I got to the cache site it was so overgrown with weeds that it was impossible really to search without destroying vegetation… one to be left for the autumn I think ! !
