Time to begin work on this year’s running commentary – my 2022 Caching Diary.

2021 was a somewhat improved year compared to 2020, what with there being no pandemic lockdowns for most of the year and with me having the time and energy to meet up with friends and go out caching. 2022 looks like it ought to be even better.

My plan for 2022 is mainly to suck it and see. I mean, planning is tricky while this whole pandemic thing is still around. You don’t know quite what’s going to happen or when. Anyway, I plan to find loads of caches. Over the winter I’m planning to stay on roads and paths. I’m done with being knee-deep in clart. The “agricultural” series can all wait until spring and summer. There’s several hundred available within an hour’s drive that are designed for bikes, and hence won’t involve muddy fields.

I’m also planning to keep this post up to date and to move its date of authoring forward as the year progresses. I’ve been doing some work on presentation of my own find statistics, and as a result I’m now in a much better position to make amendments to this post quickly.

Summary

So there we have it, my 2022 Caching Diary. OK, for most of the year it’s a bit spartan.
