Day #287 – Pork Pie For Breakfast

Trad: 1
Walked: 8.2 miles

When I used to visit my Grandparents in Leicester as a child, we would often be offered local Melton Mowbray Pork Pies as part of our breakfast buffet. I don’t indulge in them much nowadays, but this one would be fine for the waistline!

Mmmm, Pork Pie!
Mmmm, Pork Pie!

So it was a quick cache and dash this morning on the way back to Elstree to start the great post-Election clear up. I knew I wouldn’t have time (or energy) once I had finished this evening. The novelty container was quickly found on a familiar footpath – some of my Centenary Circle caches used to be roundabout here.

Day #281 – Bank Holiday Cache & Dash

Trad: 1
Walked: 6.8 miles

Sadly I was working today, so no time for a long geowalk for me. Instead I chose the recently placed Mountnessing Bridleway cache as my target on the way to work this morning. Better to get it under my belt early in the day, as I wasn’t sure what time I would be finishing this evening.

I’ve just been reminded that today is the 16th Birthday of Geocaching! Happy Birthday Signal! 🙂

Day #227 – Cache And Hash

Multi: 1
Walked: 1.9 miles

Well I had intended to do the High Easter Village Sign multi as a cache and dash as the weather was so iffy today. But instead I made it more of a cache and hash…

Having done the caclulations and plugged the numbers into my GPS I got a convincing GZ quite a bit away from the sign, but set off for it on foot. On arrival at my co-ords I found things which matched the hint but were at least 50ft from my “GZ”. Re-checked the numbers and discovered that I had plugged in E0° 20… for the Eastings instead of E0° 21… Argh! So, I had to trudge back to the car and drive to the new location instead. What a numpty!

Day #224 – Carl’s No. 5

Trad: 1
Walked: 1.2 miles

I was spending Mothers’ Day in Wivenhoe today and only had time for a quick cache and dash during a short walk. Carl’s Cache #5 was on my list since I last tried it on Boxing Day and couldn’t get near to search due to muggle kids playing football right by GZ.

Before 10am this morning, nobody was out kicking anything about, so it was a quick find. I had a little walk to the Jetty and Quay and then made my way back to my parents’ for the rest of the day.

Day #212 – Déjà Vu

Trad: 1
Walked: 5.0 miles

Just time for a quick cache and dash today, as I was busy scoping out and setting a little circuit of caches for Leap Day. I headed to a newly-published Church “Micro” nearby, only to realise I had visited the same spot a couple of years ago when another cache was resident. It took me ages last time, but today I was able to go straight to the pot!

Day #211 – Elstree Wander

Trad: 1
Walked: 7.5 miles

I was working in Elstree today and got let out of my meeting earlier than expected. It was still daylight, so I thought I would take a walk to find something in the area rather than waiting until I got back into London, by which time it would probably be dark.

The first one I tried was sadly a DNF (I was in good company, I think it’s been muggled). But the second was lurking behind one of these familiar things. Job done.
