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, so we thought we’d give it a go.

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……

It was far to 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.
