Geocache Description:

As is my custom, I like to celebrate milestones by placing a new cache. This short series is to mark my 1000 finds.

About SideTracked Caches

This cache belongs to the SideTracked series. It is not designed to take you to a magical place with a breath taking view. It's a distraction for the weary traveller, but anyone else can go and find it too. More Information can be found at the SideTracked Website

Since I don't drive, my caching is done by walking, cycling or public transport and this series reflects that. I have called it RCR i.e. Rail, Cycle, Rail because that's the way I did it! The series has 9 caches and is approximately 3 miles long between Thornton Abbey and Goxhill. It begins and ends with a SideTracked cache where I got on and off the train which runs between Cleethorpes and Barton on Humber. The caches can be done in any order and the route can be walked or cycled. Caches can also be done individually as drive bys, although the route cannot be driven around completely. All of the containers are slightly different but none of the hides are difficult and the series would be good for newbies. The hints are comprehensive, so experienced cachers may want to ignore them!

This cache is a disguised micro close to Thornton Abbey station. Thornton Abbey itself is well worth a visit and can be accessed via a footpath from the station or by the road. There is also another cache very close by!
