Found it BaSHful found SideTracked - Oxenholme, The Lake District

Monday, August 10, 2015North West England, United Kingdom

This year I am taking my (by myself) holiday in the Lake District, staying at the Ambleside end of Windermere in a pleasant little hotel. My motivation is a desire to revisit this beautiful area that I have visited many times in the past, though not for many years, to see if I can still make it to the tops of the hills and, of course, to pick up a few caches, many aimed at furthering the many challenges I have set myself, including qualifying for one or two challenge caches.

I work up to the rain, again, but the forecast indicated it would clear up, which it eventually did and I set out mid-morning for an eclectic mixture of caches, none of which would required extensive walking. I did however manage to visit Kendel, Keswick, Langdale and Borrowdale and wonder whether I spent more time driving than caching today. We're a queer bunch!

I collect SideTracked and today is SideTracked day and there is only one SideTracked in the Lake Distract, so here I am. The good news is that I've escaped the rain in Ambleside. The bad news is that I'm struggling to find it. (Probably worrying about the car park fee I hav'n't paid!) I turn to the web page and find the helpful last section after which things go much better.

BaSHful.

infoThis is the original cache type consisting, at a bare minimum, a container and a log book. 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. The coordinates listed on the traditional cache page is the exact location for the cache.
