I was going to have a day doing non-caching things on Saturday and save caching for a full day out on Sunday.
Just after dinner I started to wonder about popping out to clear up a multi cache that has been sat at the very top of our closest to home not founds for too long. We’re not great fans of multi’s but it was making the map look untidy so off I set. I had a nice walk around Woodseaves getting the clues and a short walk to the final cache location for an easy find.
After I’d finished, I was pondering a trip towards Stafford to do the other multi we’ve been putting off doing near Seighford. It was only 6 miles or so away so off I set. This one was a micro leading to a final box and easy enough, with a nice walk thrown in for good measure.
By this time I was enjoying myself and wanted to go and find more caches. The only problem being we’ve done virtually all of them in the area. The nearest was at Sandon, the other side of Stafford.
Off I set and was soon parking up at the church the cache was set near. As I got out of the Jeep I spotted some other cachers a short distance away and decided to pop down to get the cache (100ft away) and then go back to say hello to them. The cache was a quick find but when I returned to the parking, the cachers were not there as they had already set off on their walk – doh! I think it was milly’s marauders, based on the names in the cache logbook. Great to nearly meet you anyway ;-).
Next, I headed up through Stone to a couple of quick drive-by’s, including one at Stoke Rugby Club which was nowhere to be seen the last time I’d tried to find it. This time it was much easier – in fact the cache was just sat there in plain view under a conifer.
Last of the quick trip out was a new cache in the south end of Stoke. It was a .3 walk up an old road that is now closed off to vehicles. Another nice easy find was had here, with the only thing to note a dodgy looking lone bloke lurking by the side of the path towards where I’d parked. I’ve no idea what he was up to but he looked very dodgy. I did wonder if this is what I must look like when I’m out caching and waiting for muggles to go past GZ before I can find a cache. Probably :-(.
7 finds and quite a bit of driving, but at least the local multi’s are now done :-).
