Simply Paul: Archived and gathered up. Nearly 100 finds (and two 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. A QEF here as the original cover had gone. My thanks to N0Hope for his making the cache safe to be picked up. Cheers again for all your logs. Thanks too to the group which came with me here to collect this one. Np, they didn't all sign the log, but I know they were here as the cache was found. For the last time! [:)]

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: Could be done as a drive-by, but shouldn't be as cars can come around corners pretty quickly on this road. Best park at the church and walk back for it (via LB07) if that's the mood you're in.

Biography: 1977 was mostly spent eating homemade ice-lollies with the first girl I ever kissed, Heather McVerny (see photo). I also recall street parties for the Silver Jubilee.

Wider world: 1977 was the year of Star Wars, which blew me away on a wet day while on holiday in Weston-Super-Mare, I think. Disco and Trimphones (no dial- buttons to press!) had arrived, along with Saturday Night Fever dancing and Wings' Mull of Kintyre which was a chart topper for a full nine weeks. Wolfie Smith made my surname cool in Citizen Smith as the Tooting Popular Front and Slime, Othello and Skateboarding were popular too :) Number 1 on my birthday: The Name of the Game by Abba.

Where next: Continue along the pavement to a metal kissing gate on your right and pass through to reach LB07.
