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!
We had decided to spend the two last nights of our trip in Crawley. We arrived today, and after leaving our luggage at the hotel we went caching. Our hotel was situated right within the Worth The Walk circle, and we therefore started on that series and included the Rowfant Roundabout (as well as a bunch of “bonus” caches). In the afternoon we headed for the city centre, where we had something to eat and did a bit of urban caching. This cache was found at 18:48. This one happened to become a mini milestone for us: Our find no. 9600!
Thanks for the cache and greetings from Denmark!
