A Distinct Lack of Enthusiasm

This day started off as a bit of a “can’t be bothered” sort of a day. I’d planned to go on a monster session over towards Hatley but got up in the morning, looked out of the window at the freezing cold and generally dank conditions, and decided I couldn’t be bothered. Instead I decided to stay close to home by doing Charlies Sixth Loop, in the woods behind Woburn Golf Course.

I thought about it over breakfast, and decided to scale my expectations down a bit. I’d been going over to Hatley quite a lot. Charlies Sixth was a somewhat more manageable undertaking. Other loops in the series had been good. It would make a reasonably short day out. And it would be mainly in the trees, and hence good for caching in the fog and cold.

The kids, as ever, couldn’t be bothered with it. So I left them with Kas to cosy up at home and get all their homework done.


There’s not a lot to say about the caching except that many of them involved some kind of a field puzzle, and were therefore worthy of a favourite point. Despite being in the woods they were all fairly easy to locate.

On the way home I took the opportunity to fetch a new Church Micro in Woburn Sands and also to stop near the Open University campus at Walton Hall to grab a couple of new cache from Charlie’s Fifth Loop – these were in spaces made vacant when I archived on of my own Church Micros. I had one at Walton Hall that was a persistent problem.

The weather stayed poor all day, but at least in the woods the rain was getting stuck in the tree cover to some extent. It was cold all day too.

The caches I found during the day were :
