What a daft name for a post

What kind of a name is iBletchWinspiration? Well, it’s two kinds of name. One type is a compilation of words related a specific caching series. That series is based in Bletchley, and it’s themed upon various Apple electronic devices. And realising where the cache was took a bit of inspiration and lateral thinking. The second type of title is one which makes my SEO tool show a green light without me ever having to type a key phrase that anyone will search for. If anyone does ever Google search for iBletchWinspiration I’ll be really disappointed if this isn’t the first post on their list.

Anyway, back at the plot, this was the night before we were due to set off on holiday to France. So instead of packing materials to go on holiday we decided that a bit of caching must be in order. After all, who needs to spend time packing anyway?

I can’t remember who’s idea it was to go out, but at some point during the day Kas had spent some time reading the clues for iBletchWin Bonus Cache – a previous “unknown” – we’d never quite figured it out. She had a theory, and that theory involved not needing to get the bikes out. That’s gotta be worth a look.

As usual, Kev seemed to be the only one wearing vegetation-proof clothing and footwear and he was suitably dispatched into the undergrowth chasing Kas’s theory. She was correct, so the whole job took about 5 minutes. Which meant……

And another one

It was far too early to go home, so all agreed we’d go have a quick pop at Super Happy Team Stealth Fun Bench MK in Kingsmead. That’s one heck of a big name for such a small cache. As the owner notes in the text, this is in a location that might be regarded as rather conspicuous.

What could possibly be seen as suspicious about a group of four people parking up in a housing estate and walking all of 10 yards to sit on a bench for 5 minutes and then leaving again? Coupled with the gentle background noise of curtains being opened just wide enough to be peered through. Oh, and a small child shouting “muggles” whenever anyone else came into earshot. We might as well have taken a pot of whitewash and written “look here” on the pavement. I hope it’s still there.

The holiday that we weren’t packing for was our two-week trip to St Malo.
