Life in a nutshell, 'cos it's better if you're nuts!

A collection of random thoughts, adventures, happenings and general goings on in the Gardner Family.
Only in Olney

Only in Olney

I needed to fill a slot on the Matrix and to the west of Olney are caches set on two different days I need for the “366 Days Placed” list too.

Shocott Shuffle

Shocott Shuffle

Sunday afternoon and some planned cache time, having sorted out schedules with the lady of the household. What to do and where to go ?

Ampthill Amble

Ampthill Amble

A slot to fill in The Matrix and I managed to persuade Ami to come (well, technically, it was bribery rather than persuasion, but it’s a fine line with an 8 year old).

Route Canal

Route Canal

A quick dash up to Stoke Bruerne on a grey Sunday afternoon in early February. It was after 2pm already when I arrived, so I had limited time.

Stowe Maintenance

Stowe Maintenance

I’d had a couple of warnings about my geocaches at Stowe being in need of some TLC, so I decided it was about time I paid a visit and fixed a couple of things.

New Year Wander

New Year Wander

New Year’s Day, and all is quiet. Well, not completely, but mainly. And it was wet everywhere, after having rained incessantly for the previous few days.

2012 Caching Diary

2012 Caching Diary

Another year of tupperware hunting, and this time it all got a bit serious. It’s becoming a bit of an obsession.

Filling a Gap

Filling a Gap

A day of messing around punctuated by a quick trip out to grab a few new caches in Woughton-on-the-Green, thereby filling a gap in the “Days I’ve Been Caching” matrix.

Yule Blog

Yule Blog

A day of walking in the rain, eating too much, drinking too much, and blogging.

Trees, Golf and Mud

Trees, Golf and Mud

I had a holiday spare in December, having saved one up in case the girls had a teachers strike or an illness. I decided December 6th was late enough in the year to risk it.

Not the Best Night Ever

Not the Best Night Ever

A score draw, of sorts. 10 finds and 10 DNFs. Scratched hands, muddy trousers, and twitching curtains.
