Simply Paul: Archived and gathered up. Over 100 finds (and four DNFs; sorry!) on this cache, but the series is past its sell-by date, always needed a lot of attention due to cheap cache containers - take note, series setters! - and had some other issues (reopening of train line and HS2 fears amongst them) so it's time to drop most of them. TCLN. Not impressed that someone had stolen the fake rock this micro used to live in.... Cheers again for all your logs. Thanks too to the group which came with me here to collect this one up. They didn't all sign the log, no, but I know they were here as the cache was found [:)]

Geocache Description:

The Life Begins cache series is an autobiographical trail set to celebrate - if that's the right word - my turning 40 in November 2011. Don't forget to answer the question in red on the log and make a note of the number! You should get four chances to get each figure in order to find LB40-Bonus!.

This cache: I once gave my parents cause for concern when my brother and I vanished for hours to play on this railway line. It was still in use then. We walked along it on a Sunday though, when no trains ran on it. That made the punishment no less severe though.

Biography: In 1974 I discovered girls (see a shot with an early crush, Sam) and moved to Steeple Claydon; the bungalow you passed earlier. I had an idylic childhood in many ways, with a good sized back garden for harring around. I've early memories of walking to Sunday School and sleeping on top of my mother's top-loading washing machine. The sound always made me sleepy - still does. Which might explain why I'm rarely awake at the end of F1 Grand Prix races...

Wider world: 1974 was the year of Blazing Saddles and the Return of the Pink Panther, Pong and The Wombles in the pop charts. Porridge, It Ain't Half Hot Mum and Bagpuss were on the telly, plus Streaking took off. Everything. Number 1 on my birthday: Gonna Make You a Star by David Essex.

Where next: Just stick with the 'line to LB04.
