Sunday afternoon and some planned cache time, having sorted out schedules with the lady of the household. What to do and where to go ? First, time to fill up a seat in the car, so I dropped a quick line to BingBongLong, who happened to be in our area hoovering up a few of my MKBW Yellow series. Yeah, of course he was up for a few more in the afternoon, especially if someone else was driving there. Must be his turn next.

We decided to head over to a series near the Cardington Airship Hangars and a nearby circuit in a very immature community woodland at Shocott. The weather could best be described as gandiegow, if you’re of the Scottish persuasion.

I have to wonder whether the spelling of the wood is subject to debate, seeing as the cache owners chose to spell all the even-numbered ones with a double “t” and the odd-numbered ones with a single “t”. It would probably be irritating if you were a bit OCD, but my main problem was that the boundary of my pocket query of “1000 caches closest to home that I haven’t done” runs right through the middle of here. So when I first looked at the phone I got the western 5 caches only. I had to run my Bedford PQ for the first time in a few months to get all of them loaded.

So not a bad afternoon overall. A couple of misses on caches that were almost certainly not there anyway. 12 finds, and that took me past 100 this year and 2200 in total.
