If you would like to take part in the walk, it is still possible. The maps and geocache clues are available from the shop but are also below if you would rather take an note of them now...
Don't have a GPS? Don't worry. If you take the first 3 numbers of each reference, you can use these to find the grid reference on a 1:25k map. For example 'Private Place' is grid reference 936, 777 reading along the 'bottom' of the map and then up the 'side' of the map. The OS map that covers this walk is Explorer 268.
The caches will be removed Friday morning (26th October 2012).
If you want to take part, each cache contains one or two letters. Once you have the letters, you need to complete the anagram and return your answer to us at Campfour. All correct answers will be included in a prize draw that will be announced on Friday at the David Hamilton lecture (see earlier blog).
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to give us a call at the shop on 01625 619 204 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that this walk is not guided and is undertaken at your own risk. Campfour cannot be held responsible for anything that happens whilst undertaking this walk or anything relating to this walk.
What is geocaching?
Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunt. Using your map and GPS, you try to locate hidden containers, called geocaches. You can place your own geocaches and register them. You can also use some of the online geocaching community websites and forums to share your geocaching experiences.
Essentially, it add a whole new dimension to walking that is great fun for kids and adults alike.
What is a geocache?
It can be any container - plastic tub, film canister etc. - and will usually contain a note pad and pencil so that you can write in it when you find the cache. There may also be a couple of small items in there that you can 'trade'. If you take something, you must put something in there to replace it so that the 'trading' can continue.
