Keyston Kache Kaper

Keyston Kache Kaper
The Keyston Kache Kaper is a 9-mile walk of 47 + 4 caches set on a 9-mile figure of eight walk starting in the village of Keyston in Cambridgeshire.  The route takes you along bridleways and footpaths, with a short section on quiet roads.

A frosty start
The forecast for today was for heavy snow so after checking the met office website we decide to make a very early start as the snow wasn't due until about 15:00 and we worked out that if we set off straight after dropping our son at work at 07:00 we could be in the area before 09:00 and then back home well before the snow set in.
Just as we arrived at the parking another cacher pulled up, it was Gladstone8, we enjoyed a brief chat and exchange of TB codes and then went our separate ways as they were waiting to be joined by friends and we were conscious of our time constraints with the weather today.

All the caches are hidden to be found so all had good hints and were straightforward to find so we were able to enjoy the walk and surroundings.  We managed to find all the caches too, which is unusual for us because we nearly always have at least 1 DNF on a Poshrule series

We completed the walk in 3¾ hours and then it was back to the car for our well earned soup.

We did have another series planned for the afternoon but didn't want to risk hanging around as we knew the snow was on its way.  I'm sure we'll be back to do that one very soon.

Hope we get back before it sets in

Thought we'd give the Garmin track log a try instead of Everytrail:
