Geocaching | 61 miles
On Saturday Isaac could not come caching so I opted for a day caching around West Lancashire on my own. I planned to start off with the Pigsy caches to the east of Skelmersdale and then head off north towards Mawdesley and then see how much time I had left.I had a fab time caching around the Pigsy caches with some of the best presented caches we've seen. All decent sized boxes...

England, United Kingdom
Geocaching | 46 miles
On Saturday myself and Isaac decided to head for the By Ecc, An Event! event cache at Copmere, close to Eccleshall. We'd heard there would be 28 caches put out for the event, so just had to find some caches to do in the morning before the event.A new series just to the SW of Shifnal that had come out during the week looked perfect. Even better, just about the whole route...

A really lovely walk with a few ups and down's (well, it is Wales...

We did not know any more than this (which was also posted on Facebook by the cache owner) so were wondering what was in store for us!Sure enough,...

Geocaching | 31 miles
On Sunday myself and Isaac headed to the area between Wigan and Leigh to make a start on the many circular (yet a bit random) walks in the area. I say random as some of the walks are not quite circular and involve caches dotted all over the place with no pattern to them.We started with Lioncache which is a elogated walk along an ex-railway line and then back along fields and...

This morning I dropped Isaac off at school and could not resist popping down to Ironbridge to try the new Severn Gorge Earthcache as no-one had logged it yet.I parked as suggested near the Ironbridge (60p for 2 hours) and set off to do my measurements by the bridge. Once I got these details I headed off up into Benthall Woods to climb up to the viewpoint at the top of the gorge...

A really nice walk in the fog, so the views were not very expansive. We found all but #5, which was nowhere to be seen.We then...
