A cold and grey day in December with nothing much to do. Might as well go hunting for tupperware. There were a couple of loops from the Charlies series that I hadn’t done – the Third and the Fifth. That looked like a worthy day out.
Charlies Third Loop
First up was Charlie’s Third Loop, which required parking on the road between Woburn and Little Brickhill behind Woburn Golf Course. It was a short loop of 17 caches which took me less than two hours to do. It involved a very pleasant walk through some of the woodland up on Brickhill, followed by a dive down into the bottom and a walk over ground I’d previously covered doing the Orange section of the MK Boundary Walk.
Charlies Fifth Loop
Second up was Charlie’s Fifth Loop, which required parking in Milton Keynes over the park from the Open University campus at Walton Hall. This one was a more urban route around the paths in Walton Hall and Woughton-on-the-Green, so it was quite fast going. It was getting pretty well dark by the time I got back to my car though. Parking where I did gave me the opportunity to check a couple of my own caches on the way past.
In all I found 38 caches on the day. Charlies Third Loop is on the left, and the Fifth is on the right.
