Whilst caching yesterday, the toe on my right walking boot came away from the sole of the boot so I knew it was time to invest in a new pair of boots. The right boot has been intermittently leaking for a few weeks now so I had an idea something was not quite right.
The usual outdoor shop I got my last pair of boots from has now closed, so I spent a while ringing round various shops in the area (and beyond!) this morning trying to work out who had some in stock. Cotswold Outdoors in Birmingham city centre had the best choice of size of the boot I was after (I could not remember what size by last boots where!) so off I set.
After investing in a very comfortable new pair of walking boots, I headed off to do the two nearest caches before I returned home. The first was a nice hide and took some spotting, even though a previous finder has put a serious spoiler photo on the cache page. The second cache was by the Birmingham Hippodrome and a much easier find – in fact I walked right up to it :-).
The only problem with both caches was the caching was totally in-promptu and I did not have a pen to sign the logbooks with. I’ve put photos with the logbook / cache on my logs to prove my find instead.
Now back to home to crack on with some work…
