Caches No’s 4536 & 4537 – A Bridge Too Far ?

September, and Hyke around Hykeham time, and no purple stall to sell stuff to raise money at.
Lincoln is about 90 miles away so can be a boring journey especially as most of it is the same journey I have made going down to Norfolk once or twice a year for the past 30 odd years.
So for a change I came back over the Humber Bridge, it costs about £3 toll and is really enjoyable to cross as it is so low to the water

2nd September 2018 – Hyke Around Hykeham 7 GC7Q6T5 – cache #4536
Another fine HaH event, there were new caches put out (as usual) and it was for once a nice day – it had rained on previous years, but I spent all day sitting on a stall with Coinkezza logging trackables into a TB race… maybe next year I will go and find all the caches that are now placed locally

2nd September 2018 – Gateway to the City of Culture 2017 GC7B99A – cache #4537
On my way back from the Hyke around Hykeham 7 event in Lincoln, I decided to take the long way home to go for this cache as it was a nice sunny early evening.

I haven’t walked on the bridge since 1982 and only driven across it a couple or three times so it was nice to stop at the South end viewing point and take a photo, then drive across to the North end and walk into the middle from there (the answer for the cache was under the SOS phone)
