…. We decided to go for it.
To find 365 caches in our first calendar year.
As we mentioned in our previous post we only needed 2 or 4 caches (depending on whether you include the meets) so 5 seemed to be ample.
We’d seen a mini-series called “Shurlock Stroll” of about 1.5 miles and 5 caches which seemed ideal. There were also set by JJEF whose caches appear to be classier than a film container hidden under some twigs. A short walk with hopefully some great caches. We were not disappointed!
Imagine any walk in the countryside – there are trees, fields, hedges,holes etc but there are also a surprising number of man-made objects . Telephone boxes, post boxes, finger posts, fences, pylons, bridges, stiles etc.. Although we had seen many caches in such structures, JJEF used some, all or none of the above items to great effect. Many of the caches required a certain amount of dexterity as, having found the hiding place, the cache still had to be removed.
JJEF had clearly invested a lot of time in making various containers and placing them in unique ways. It was a great, little walk and one we recommend to anyone !
This was a great finish to a year’s caching which started on the Ridgeway overlooking Chequers, and finished with 5 high entertainment caches.
PS We’ve tried not to give too much away on this blog, as the caches are really of so good a quality we seriously wouldn’t want to spoil them for you. All you need is a pair of tweezers and a good sense of humour!
