24th February - As the series is fairly close to home we decided to split it into 3 walks. The day they were published we'd just dropped our daughter off at a sleepover and had a free evening ahead so we decided to head out for a spot of night caching. We parked in a small lay-by near to HH30 and followed the circuit around to HH40 then across the field to HH29 and back to the car, making a walk of 2½ miles. We managed 9 FTFs before bumping into Big Batch who was doing the series in a different order, enjoyed a brief chat before going our separate ways. Haven't done much night caching lately so it was really good fun. Can't comment on the suitability for dogs on this circuit as we didn't have them with us but as far as we can remember there were no dog proof stiles. All the caches were very nicely crafted and thought out, with a good variety of sizes from nano to Regular - our favourite being HH35 - Chicken Run.

We parked on the verge and walked down the lane to start at HH15. This circuit was probably our favourite of the series, it was completely dog friendly - apart from just one dog-proof stile at HH17 but the dogs were able to get under the barbed wire fence further along so no problem really.
We set off fully goretexed but the rain stopped not long after we set off and we enjoyed a lovely walk in the afternoon sunshine but the wind was still bitterly cold reminding us that it's not spring yet.
Then that was the series complete, we've really enjoyed doing them and appreciate the time and effort that must've gone into setting them.
