Last Friday, in addition to the new caches along the old Market Drayton railway line coming out, there was a 16 stage multi around the lovely (small) town of Eccleshall, not far from home.
On Sunday, after I’d finished logging Saturday’s caches, myself and Freya set off for Eccleshall to try the new cache.
With so many stages, we’d opted for a printed version of the cache (rather than being strictly paperless, as we usually are). I’d glad we did as the 15 stages meant lots of writing things down and co-ord calculations for the next stage.
We were taken on a lovely circular walk, taking in some interesting spots we’ve driven past loads of times but not looked at in detail.
Eventually we got to the 16th stage and sat down to work out where the final cache was. We realised it would make sense to go back to the Jeep and move it round to nearer the final cache.
This we did and a short walk later we were approaching GZ. Freya found the nicely hidden cache.
We were getting hungry by now so headed off home for some well deserved refreshments and some food.
