The great Cotswold walk

GCW #1 - 130 caches, 37km, 3 loops

Hmmm  :-\

Those FTFs for you walk tall?  :D

Who's going to do them?  ;D I might eventually get round to them, but not in one go  :o

Now back after my Parish Council meeting :( I would have gone if it wasn't for that for a few FTF's.

Wonder if there will be any left in the morning ???

I found out my folks might buy me PM for my birthday which is in October, and by that point be caching for over a year, but I've tried not spending any more money than travelling on caching because I wanted to see how well I could do without opening the wallet.

I am jealous though, because this series is close to one of my friends, and I started showing her family caching and they haven't gone PM too. Another time it will be.

Griff - I was very happy with the route I did today starting from Ablington heading to Coln Roger and back. There are a couple of caches I wondered how long they will last :o Only had to use hint once, as tree cover with lots of places to hide was just to much on one cache ::)

Hopefully I'll upload some pictures I took as wasn't in too much of a hurry - just got up very early - the good old days - remember those wrighty  ;) :D

That's good - and oh no, not a duplicate of the RK series  :o :o

I think that if you wanted to do it in a day you'd have to start at 5  :-\ Wonder who'll be first to take up the challenge?

I did start at 5! And stopped about 10mins later  ;D

I am up for it, but don't have a whole day to spare for a while. I think though, going by just the 3 I did this morning, that if you did want to do all in one go and not get a disappointments of caches missing, then the series would need tackling very soon.

All 3 I did were 35mm type. One was affixed in place very well, one was so so, and one I think could just get blown away or otherwise lost quite easily. The walk as a whole I think would be very nice though, as I have been on parts of it for non-caching reasons previously.
