We had to go to the Jeep dealership in Stoke this afternoon, so decided to pick off a few of the Newcastle-under-Lyme caches on the way home.
The first was one of the caches in a series about famous writers and the Potteries. The co-ords took us to a house on a very ordinary street, where H G Wells had lived for a year. We soon calculated the co-ords for the final cache and a short walk later, the cache was in hand.
Next, it was a quick nano on the back of a road-sign, put here in memory of the cache owner’s Dad, who lived on that street.
A short drive later and we were at a super-sneaky hide at a Staffordshire Church Gem. We searched around for ages before giving in and phoning the cache owners, our friends cannonedwards. We were then given a good hint and soon had the cache in hand – a very unusual hide and in a place we’d not even thought to look – doh!
Last one of the trip was in Three Parks in Newcastle and not far from where one of our Cache Dispenser’s offspring had been hidden. A nice easy find was had here, despite us hearing that it might be a tricky find. At least that makes up for our efforts at the previous cache .
