I was at home looking after the children last night while Mrs Bolas Heathens was out, when up popped a new cache towards Stafford. Not long after, Allun from the Shropshire Seekers (who lives in the village nearest to us) popped up on MSN to ask if I fancied a FTF dash for it. Of course I did :-).
Allun arrived round just before Mrs Bolas Heathens got home and as soon as we could we dashed out to the cache. It was by an old bridge over the old Stafford to Newport railway line, which is now a lovely cycleway. We suspected the cache was on the cycleway so down we went.
My GPS zero’d out by a fence near the bridge so I set about searching there while Allun was looking nearby. We then wondered if the cache might actually be up on the bridge itself (the cache page said it was a sneaky hide!). One of us went up while the other carried on looking down below.
A short while later Allun came up with the cache, although I won’t say if he was ‘up’ or ‘down’ as we don’t want to make it too easy for future finders ;-). Even better, we were FTF on the cache :-).
