A couple of weeks ago I’d been up in Burton Dassett to start some work on the Pokémon series of puzzle caches. Fast-forward a couple of weeks and I fancied another hack at them. This time I was looking to begin in Bishop’s Itchington.

Interactive Cache Maps

Interactive Cache Maps

Since Christmas I have been trying to gradually improve this website. One solution I was searching for was a way of displaying an interactive cache maps of my finds on a particular day. I found a solution, and I think it’s good enough to write about. Why not?

I ain’t no Oil Painting

I definitely ain’t no oil painting, but neither are any of these. They’re an electronic attempt at painting by numbers. It passes the time!
