Found it DK_Titan found 23 Shifnal to Kemberton - CLUCK

Friday, August 2, 2013West Midlands, United Kingdom

It has been almost three years since our last geocaching vacation in the UK, but we have many times talked about coming back to this beautiful country and it's public footpaths. On all our previous trips we had to rely on public transportation, but this time we rented a car, which gave us much more flexibility to plan each day trip.

After ten days in the area around Blackburn (which involved a lot of walking uphill and downhill), we yesterday headed South to our next accommodation at Hilton Park. We wanted to spend the last two days of our trip visiting cache series in relatively flat terrain. Today we focused on the area between Kemberton, Ryton and Shifnal, and had a very pleasant walk through fields, forests and along narrow country roads. At one point we wanted to follow a footpath across a field, but a sign warned us about the bull (and cows with calves) in the field. We decided to enter the field and head for the cache hidden there, but our plan of crossing the field was canceled, when we saw the enormous bull standing in the middle of the footpath. Actually, the bull seemed friendly enough, but all the surrounding cows made a lot of noise, so we decided to make a detour to the next cache!

The weather was ideal for our purpose - dry and not too hot. Shortly before we were back at our car we heard distant thunder and saw a beautiful rainbow, but the rain did not reach us until we were in the car and on our way back to the hotel.

It was a pleasure to find a lot of well-maintained caches with dry log books. Quite a few of the caches were cleverly hidden, which also contributed to the good experience.

This cache was found at 18:47.

Thanks for the cache and greetings from Denmark!

Normally you'll find a tupperware container, ammo box, or bucket filled with goodies, or smaller container ("micro cache") too small to contain items except for a log book.
