If You Go Down To The Woods Tonight

The first above ground maximum 25 point TOP CACHE in the UK. This by itself says almost all that needs to be said.

A truly awsome night cache, in a great location, meticulously planned for optimum layout. Immense investment of time and effort on each of the stages, ingenuity coupled with top quality preparation, everything is designed, made and maintained to the highest standard.

The Sky At Night

Tree climbs by night :-). A lot of work for one cache, but what else would you expect from this c/o ;-) ? The other thing you expect from this c/o is immaculate presentation and minute attention to detail, and you get this too :-) .

Northampton By Boat

A series of canoe or dinghy caches on the Nene, through Northampton. A lovely river to paddle on, with some challenging sections, and several outstanding hides.

Hippos Below

One of the "classics", I don't know how I managed to cache for 11 years without doing it earlier. Saved it up for a great occasion I guess ;-).

A dreadfully muddy approach, but a great paddle once inside :-) .

We didn't find a large number of caches on this trip, but many of those we did find required imaginative solutions that we hadn't had to employ before. This was no exception :-) .

Boat Only

A whole series of great boat caches on the River Nene, either side of the site of Fotheringhay Castle. Could have chosen several for the link, but used this one because a) it was a fun puzzle that was straightforward for me to do, and b) we were First to Find :-) .

Float your boat

Lovely boat series on the Nene, but tricky - I was able to reach only two of the four caches. The best of them was one that I didn't even try to get to on my own, and from a narrow, wobbly, unstable canoe, so I've linked to one that I did manage :-) .

Caching for Girls - Pucker Up!

This entry covers 3 quite simple but varied free climbs on the Brampton Valley Way - the other two being BVW High 'n' Mighty and BVW Branching Out. All the caches were nicely presented. There are a number of more difficult climbs in the vicinity that I didn't tackle because I hadn't solved the puzzles - maybe in due course they will get a TOP CACHE coin too :-) .
