We’d only been back from our holiday for a day or two so are still quite jetlagged. Rather than our usual caching day this weekend, we opted to just do some caches closer to home.
On Saturday I had to run some errands near to Telford so decided to pop down to Telford Services on the M54 and do the new Traditional and Earthcache there. They were both at exactly the same location – a massive old steam hammer that used to have a cache hidden inside it ages ago (but now archived).
Nothing too tricky here and I even had chance to pop by the nearby Starbucks for a coffee to keep me awake!
Next, I headed up towards Newport to do the two new caches there. Again, nothing too tricky here – they were both in really lovely spots and amongst the best presented caches we’ve seen (great custom label on the cache box etc etc).
On Sunday we decided to go out as a family to walk the dogs and also to do the Shropshire Seekers’ new series around Great Bolas. we’ve got a few of our own caches around the area so knew part of the route already.
The series started off with two caches with “Sneaky” in their name. Luckily we’d seen both hides before a few times so found both of them really quickly.
Next, it was a series of 4 caches plus a bonus cache on a circular walk. All were really nicely themed after a well known fast food restaurant (I use the term restaurant here very lightly). Great fun and the bonus was a big ammo box which we always appreciate.
