The Sketch

I was joined on this day by Daughterus Minimus. There must have been the promise of chocolate, Pringles, or something similar. It was a Saturday, so I’m presuming we went around after doing parkrun first thing. That would be the normal state of affairs for us. We were going to have a pop at the Sandon Sloth.

I parked on the recommended parking in the middle of Sandon village. It wasn’t a great spot but it was definitely the best spot available. It’s right over the road from the church and hence gave us the opportunity to grab the Church Micro cache on the way out to the start of the “official” Sandon Sloth series.

The series was mainly over agricultural land. About 9 of the total were at the side of the road and the others (31 of them) were on footpaths in the fields.

The Execution

I noted in my logs that the 40 caches we did on this series took us just 3 hours to complete. That’s pretty smart going. The exercise was undoubtedly helped by the fact that the cache owner had done maintenance in the morning. He’d changed all the logs and repositioned all of them to match the hints.

The walking route from Sandon went initially north and east more or less all the way up to Kelshall before turning south and west again to run down a different set of footpaths to Green End and back to Sandon.

I evidently didn’t find anything interesting enough to be worthy of a photo.

So the caches I found on the Sandon Sloth walk are shown in the map below.
