Cold, Dank, and Foggy
It was a pretty miserable kind of a day for weather, but Ami and me had decided we were off out for a bit of box hunting regardless. We got ourselves wrapped up nice and warm, acquired suitable provisions, and headed off in the general direction of Haynes. It was the location of the large-looking and relatively new “Between Hare and There” series.
It took us a while to get parked, because I didn’t really like anywhere in the village where we stopped. However, once we got going the caching was fast and furious. We caught up with another caching crew at one point, and sped past them at breakneck speed. It was all pretty easygoing.
At one point we passed, and completely missed, a sign saying that the forest path was closed for the winter. We sped on through an area we weren’t supposed to have been in until we reached the road on the other side. Subsequent to our being there, the caches on that stretch of the circuit have been archived. Presumably that’s because cachers were still going through there. It wasn’t well signposted and it would have been better if they’d not given permission in the first place for a stretch of woodland that they don’t want people in during the winter. Hey ho! Maybe they didn’t have permission for any of them.
Anyway, once back on the road we met poshrule coming the other way and said hello, as you do.
In total, the walk was about 11km long and took us around 4 hours. During that time we found 42 caches. Not bad for a rubbishy winter day of walking through foggy, damp, drizzly stuff. Not bad at all.
The caches we found from the Between Hare and There series were :
