Since we started caching in 2013 I was aware that if we ever wanted to complete our caching calendar, where you find a cache on each date of the year, then we would have to go out on Christmas day. Well this was our third Christmas after starting caching and still we hadn’t managed it. We had planned to go out last year, had even saved a cache just 70 metres from our house especially for the purpose, but somehow I wasn’t able to drag myself that ridiculously short distance.
This year I was determined. The same cache still remained unfound and so after lunch, a lovely Lamb Roast, I risked life and limb by dragging Sam from his new xBox One to take me across the road. After I had weathered the whining and moaning from him, we headed out in the rain to make the find. Spectacular it was not, it was just a magnetic on the back of a telecoms box, but it was a tricky day ticked off the Calendar and Sam got to use one of his new pens that will write on anything in any condition – rain, snow, hail or plague of frogs.
