Walked: 10.2 miles
We had lovely outing with Durham-based caching friend M.Kingfisher. Mick got into caching a couple of years ago thanks to me and Alistair and has not looked back since. Sadly I don’t see him often enough, but today we arranged a meet up to tackle the insect-themed circuit, Crawcrook Creepies. It turned out to be a great little walk.
All of the pots had insect or arachnoid guardians – this was my favourite (mainly because the pot was purple!)
Alistair and Mick pose with a grasshopper along the way:
We also found an Alien landing pod!! Hope he’s comfortable…
One cache had added horsey – of course, Alistair decided to make friends:
We finished up the last of the circuit with a big fly at No. 10. And then retired to the pub for a hearty lunch in Crawcrook!
Once we had munched, we decided there were more caches to be found, so an impromptu visit to the Blaydon area was hastily arranged and we found a few more along the Tyne, up Blaydon Burn and back via some Stella Explorer hides.
There were a few hairy moments requiring some scrambling to get a couple of caches along the Burn, but we made it out alive and nothing broken. Can you see we are relieved?
So a grand day out and lovely to catch up with Mick again while caching.
