Last year we fell in love with the English public footpaths, which we visited both in May and August, and only a few days after returning from our August trip, we started planning another geocaching tour to the UK to take place in August of 2010. The main goals of this third trip should be circular geocaching series around Reading, Eastbourne and Crawley. Neither of us are keen on the idea of driving in the "wrong" side of the road, so we had to plan our transport carefully. Luckily we managed to find a good combination of train and bus connections as well as a little bit of taxi driving. This enabled us to get close enough to many great footpaths (and geocaching series). This kind of geocaching does not provide any "drive-by's" and thus we walked more than 300 km during our 11 days trip, but that is exactly the way we like it!
When planning our trip we noticed the Bishopstone Circular which looked like a must. We managed to figure out how to get here by bus, and we had a great day in this area. It was the longest walk of our entire trip (40,5 km including walking between hotel and bus station), and we can only recommend others to walk this circle! We enjoyed both the caches of the series as well as quite a number of “bonus” caches. This one was located at 11:31. This cache happened to become a mini milestone for us: Our find no. 9400!
Thanks for the cache and greetings from Denmark!
