Yesterday was my birthday and we were due round at the in-laws with the children for a lovely birthday tea. As I was driving over (the children had gone ahead with Sarah), I was thinking to myself that it would be nice to do a cache on my birthday, but that there were none anywhere around that we had not already found.
Later on, we’d just finished the meal and I had a quick check of my emails. Unbelievably, there was a new cache not 2 miles from the in-laws house and it had literally just been published. We finished up and said our goodbye’s before I headed off to find the new cache while Sarah and the kids went home.
I was soon as GZ and got out the torch for the quick walk over the churchyard to GZ. The cache was an easy find and I was delighted to find I was FTF! What a birthday present.
On the way back to the Jeep, I checked the iPhone and could not believe it when I spotted another new cache, right on my way home from the first one.
A short drive later and I was at GZ for the second one. This one took a bit more finding as the co-ords were 275 feet off, but the hint was clear and I only had two candidates to check. I found the cache in the first one I looked at – wooohoooo – two FTF’s on my birthday.
Now to go home and relax in front of a log fire to watch Spooks – perfect :-).
