A return to the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half in Liverpool. This time it was Kas’s turn to run it and my turn to look after the kids.

Wirral Wander

Wirral Wander

While we were up in Liverpool again for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon I took the opportunity to go and do a bit of caching on The Wirral.

Letchworth Disaster

Letchworth Disaster

To quote one of my logs for the day “Forgive me while I swear. I sacrificed my GPS at this cache.” I put it down while signing a log. As I went to pick it up, I knocked it and it fell down a drain.

Cockayne Hatley

Cockayne Hatley

Titter ye not ! It’s what the village is called. I didn’t make it up.

Down Dover

Down Dover

It would have been classed as a weekend away, except it wasn’t the weekend.

Doing Dover

Doing Dover

Well, we had to really. I couldn’t go to Dover for a long weekend and not do that tempting looking caching series along the tops of the cliffs. That would be a waste, if not a criminal offence.

Molesworth Melee

Molesworth Melee

A long solo day out in the Cachemuda Triangle – a cache-packed area in the middle of a triangle formed by the A1, A14 and A45/A605

Missile Silos

Missile Silos

I had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend an all day training session at a client’s site. I stayed overnight right next to the old Greenham Common site, near Newbury.

Manchester Marathon

Manchester Marathon

Kas entered the 2015 Manchester Marathon. Technically, I suppose, she entered the 2014 Manchester Marathon and then deferred it for a year.

Sawtry and the Giddings

Sawtry and the Giddings

Sawtry – Because if you’re surrounded by villages called The Giddings you can probably get away with all sorts of weird names.

MKBW Indigo

MKBW Indigo

Time to do the only remaining section of the Milton Keynes Boundary Walk series for which I had yet to collect the bonus.

Alconbury ‘n’ That

Alconbury ‘n’ That

A day out with Daughterus Minimus around the very pleasant little villages of Alconbury, Alconbury Weston and Coppingford.
