None Riding on This etc

We had a fun day out geocaching today. Caroline decided to brave the shops to finish off the Christmas shopping so the rest of us took a trip up Caboolture way to do a few caches. We started off with None Riding on This which was a decent walk - about 600m as the crow flies which probably turned into 800m-900m each way the way we tackled it. It was the perfect day for this sort of walk & while the kids complained a bit at times they really did enjoy it - oddly enough they used to do much longer walks than this for caches in the past without complaining, maybe its summer or maybe they're just used to all the urban micros :-)

After successfully finding that one we headed up to Jacrel's Bridge which looked like it had some DNFs, although I suspect now that most of them were from when the co-ordinates were wrong. The kids didn't help search at all at this cache, but its probably for the best as there were a tonne of spiders and wasps around under the bridge.

Then we headed on up to Good Old Days which was just a drive by - you couldn't miss this one, but its in a nice spot. I hope some people visit the historical village because of it. We then continued on to Ducks on the Mor's and there certainly were plenty of ducks there too! This proved to be an easy find and gave the kids a playground to play on which they deserved.

By the time we'd done all of that we were ready for lunch and Caroline was finished at the shops so we came back into town.

It's always tempting when a new cache comes out to go and grab it and On the edge of the Enchanted forest..... came out this afternoon and looked like the sort of cache that may be difficult to find in the daytime so I raced out and grabbed it just on dusk.

Speaking of temptations, Phone a Friend just got published - I really want to grab it tonight but think I'll do the right thing and go to bed instead.
