In May 2010 Kas dragged me off into a park in Marrakech to “play a new game”
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.
Gee ! Snow Caching

Gee ! Snow Caching

Caching around Sunderland in the snow. Excellent ! The kids were being supervised by grandparents and the sun was shining.

Caldecotte is a balancing lake, but I have no idea what it’s balancing on. There were a few caches around the lake’s edges.

Going Wild in Woburn

Wandering around the countryside looking for bits of tupperware with a stinking cold.

10km Route Planning

10km Route Planning

How can I describe this without totally giving away the game. Ahh bum ! I was planning the route for a puzzle that requires a 10km journey.

Fields, fences, footpaths and hedges, some containing tupperware.

Casing the Joint

A bicycle borne trip with the plan of measuring out steps for a half-marathon themed cache. The plan failed.

Back on the Bike

Back on the Bike

The previous night’s failure to complete a particular geocache was really grating and needed to be corrected.

What better on an autumn afternoon than to leave the kids somewhere with the parents and dash off for a bit of tupperware hunting.

A solo effort by bicycle one evening once the kids were in snoozy land, with the purpose of finding a Kitey.

Off the Wall

Off the Wall

An afternoon jaunt through a relatively empty piece of parkland, while Kas and Izzy watched Ami climbing up an indoor wall.

It’s Grim Up North

It’s Grim Up North

According to the song, it’s grim up north. I’m not sure why, given that it has canals, trees and Maccy D’s for a Friday night.

Mission Impossible

Mission Impossible

A constantly updating diary of Kitey’s Mission impossible series. More of a sort of Mega-Blog Special.
