Geocache Description:

Yes, it’s that time for me – I’m hitting the big 40 and I would really like to celebrate it with other like-minded people (that’s you) and have a caching and camping celebration!

This is a genuine open invitation to everyone. If you don’t know me then hopefully by the end of the weekend you will!

There is no mandatory requirement to camp and there will of course be a proper meet onsite to discuss Birthdays, Camping and of course all things caching! We have a very active local group and I’ll link this to our local event page.

The event is being held at the Rose and Crown pub in the village of Ridgmont about ½ a mile from Woburn Safari Park and Abbey.
This is a lovely village pub and they serve lunchtime food between 12 and 2.30pm. If you are staying, they also serve food between 6 and 9pm.
There is an intention that we will be placing 40 new caches in the area which should be released shortly after the event.

The event itself is being held at the above co-ordinates between 12 and 2pm on Saturday 24th September. We will be camping from Friday night until Sunday lunchtime.

Camping costs are to be confirmed and depends on numbers, however, the maximum costs will be as follows. Please note, all hook-ups are reserved.

Please can you state how many people will be staying and the number of nights.

Motorhomes / Caravans - £12.50 per night (irrespective of number of people)

Tents - £5 per adult per night. Children 5-18 £2.50. Under 5s free.

This is a very reasonable campsite – there are no additional costs for anything – extra cars, dogs, awnings, pup tents and so on. There are the usual rules which include – no ground fires, dogs must be on leads and so on. Barbeques and Firepits are most welcome.

If you don’t want to rough it, but still attend, there are a couple of nearby hotels.
