The rest is history. Well, mainly it is geography, but you know what I mean.

A game in which players use multi-billion dollar satellites to find bits of tupperware hidden in the woods.
Not the Best Night Ever

Not the Best Night Ever

Not the best night ever. Probably a score draw, of sorts. 10 finds and 10 DNFs. Scratched hands, muddy trousers, and twitching curtains.

Around and About

Around and About

Sunday afternoon with not a lot to do, having cleared my way through the European Ironing Mountain yesterday.

Bletsoe Bombing Run

Bletsoe Bombing Run

I decided on a relatively light day of caching today after yesterday’s excesses. By “light”, I mean a target of 40 or so, spread over 8 miles.

Halloween Hides 2012

I’ve been thinking about the Halloween Hides & Creepy Caches (Reincarnated) Mega Event for much of the year. Today was the day.

Two long walks through the middle of nowhere, setting caches that I ultimately didn’t want to own.

MKBW Violet

The MKBW Violet section ran primarily alongside the River Great Ouse and the Grand Union Canal. This walk was along the canal section.

The MKBW Turquoise section ran from the western edge of Milton Keynes at Hazeley School, across the countryside up to Stony Stratford.

MKBW Magenta

Agriculture. Lots of agriculture. Quite a lot of it was hard to get through.

Midshires Meander

Midshires Meander

There’s only so much attention that you can give to a washing machine before it degenerates into just watching your kecks go round in circles.

Two days either side of a trip to India, and causing me to miss “Super Saturday”

Geolympix 2012

Alconbury & Buckworth

Alconbury & Buckworth

A day out caching around Alconbury with Wavvy where we got rather wet. How wet? I had to wring out my socks, that’s how wet.
