Caches No’s 1011 to 1013 – Trains and Phones and Pubs

March 22nd 2011 – ‘t Woolpack GC2NNZ1 – cache #1011
A cache only a mile or so from where I work – which took me two attempts to get it due the first time to the number of people sitting around outside the pub on a sunny lunchtime, with nothing better to do than watch what the passer’s by were doing – and in this case the only passer by was me !
A cache called the Woolpack in front of a pub called The Woolpack, though to me it is still The Commercial Inn, with the Woolly being just it’s stage name !

March 28th 2011 – Sidetracked – Guiseley – Micro Train GC2Q703 – cache #1012
You’ve got to laugh at this one, there is already a Sidetracked cache at Guiseley station a couple of hundred yards down the road, but one hidden by this flower planter is guaranteed to make you smile.
Another one that set out as a lunchtime cache then there were far too many people around when I got there including a couple canoodling on a bench about 8 foot away. So I gave the idea up and went back on my way home to grab it

March 31st 2011 – I’ve Got Your Number! (Otley Exchange) GC2R72D – cache #1013
There are a number of these ‘I’ve got your number’ caches springing up at telephone exchanges around the locality. I can see the Telephone Exchange from my house, so it wasn’t too much of a detur to stop by on the way home from work to find it… took a bit of pedestrian dodging, but nothing too bad
