A quick cache and grab at Prestbury Railway Station
This is intended as a quick cache and dash side-track for Prestbury station.
We have Motorway Mayhem. We have A-Road Anarchy
(cos there aren’t many Motorways in Wales!). But what about public
transport users? SideTracked Caches are intended to provide quick
Cache-and-dashes at Train Stations. SideTracked started at Evesham
station on August 10th 2007, placed by schnarff & bikermel76.
It took a while to get started, but is now spreading across the
country! It is hoped this idea will spread across the country in
the same way as the MMs….but if hiding one PLEASE BE SENSIBLE and
remember that in this day and age, public transport is under
greater scrutiny than ever before, so, although these caches should
be quick and easy grabs,
PLEASE don’t place a Cache where it could
cause alarm!!! (Particularly, please ensure that you aware of the
new rules of 04/09/08 before hiding your Cache!)
