We had a great day out doing these caches on Saturday. The weather looked threatening all day but we did not get wet until trying ‘one last’ cache on the way home at Off Yer Trolley – Brownhills. Needless to say we gave up and dashed back to the Jeep to save getting a total soaking.
The M6 Toll series have to be some of the easiest caches we’ve ever found. They were all exactly the same kind of container and all hidden in exactly the same way. It does not get any easier than that!
The Withy Woods caches kept us amused – especially the names of some e.g. “On The Way Home From Withy Woods”, “Withy Wood Surrounded – The Last”. Someone is obviously having great fun putting out a cache at a time round the main Withy Woods cache. I bet the locals are cursing them as just when they think they have cleared the area, yet another cache comes out.
The slow part of the day was when we went into the more urban areas of Sutton Coldfield as the traffic got quite bad in places and we had to wait out muggles on a couple of caches, all of which took valuable time.
A really satisfying day’s caching with 41 finds in total, including a Virtual cache and an Earthcache.
