Title: November
Post by: Griff Grof on November 28, 2016, 07:55:03 pm
The forum has been quiet this month so why not update us on how November has been for you?

Any good walks/series'? Any special caches?

No caching for me sadly as I've been busy at uni. I did, however, go on a nice walking trip to the Yorkshire Dales last weekend. Beautiful weather and a foot of snow up on the hills   :o

Well we haven't done much caching during November, just the odd cache to drop of trackables. Not too sure why, the time just seems to fly by and it will soon be Christmas. There is a new series near us at Braunston which we hope to do in the next week or so.
Hope you are enjoying uni Grif Grof.

Only 4 caches this month, I think.

Work, family life and my other activities (running, badminton, gym classes, some voluntary work) take up most of my time, so caching is low down the pecking order at the moment, plus I'm in one of my phases where I'm not "feeling the love" for it, for some reason.

November was a fairly standard month for us, a cache a everyday with a few better days...

The 6th saw us attending the excellent GIFF event in Barnwood, we had the company of Sophie (starlemusique) from Worcester, and after the show cakes, coffe and natter we went an found a few local caches before heading back North over the border.

We did a super Multi on the 7th, a lovely crisp and sunny Winters morning, Kellys Heros - GC6MX95, part of a very good "film" series just North of us.

The 12th, 13th and 14th saw us travelling up to the NEC to spend all day at the Classic Car Show, we picked easy driveby's near Ragley Hall (Warwicks) on the way.

H went alone to look for GCCFQB - UK Mega 2013 - Worcestershire on the 17th that has eluded us for ages.  It's taken so long due to half the co-ords being on a TB that was taken out of the county despite the large label asking cachers not to!  It turned out to be interesting due to the meeting with an old chap who lives in tents nearby...

We were over near Mansfield on the 19th for a friends Golden Wedding celebration, we took the opportunity to pick up 8 CM's on the way, nothing special and it was a cold and grey day so we didn't try too hard!

The 21st was a day of heavy rain, a C&D was in order but the cache was apparently missing!  H had to detour to find another one so got wet twice!

Monthly total was 43 caches, 36 Trads, 4 Multi's, 2 ?'s and 1 Event.  10 were CM's and we had one DNF that was replaced very quickly that we found a few days later.  Location wise 27 were in Worcs, 4 in Gloucs, 4 in Warwicks, 4 in Notts and 4 in Derbys.

Sounds good Henry.
