A Trek To Hereford

My old mate, Dave Butler, invited me to a Blues Festival that he'd organised in Hereford where he now lives. The five band line-up looked pretty good so I decided to go but it meant an overnight stay. It also gave me the opportunity to get a few caches and a few new counties on the way.😀

I started early with a multi at the CM Stokenchurch which added Buckinghamshire to the county list. I added a few more before bouncing into Oxfordshire. I‘d spent a lot of time in Oxon before but this was my first geocaching visit. My qualifying cache was the CM in South Weston. I tried to do too much in these first two counties gathering up CMs so whizzed through Gloucestershire only picking up the SideTracked cache at Andoversford.

To qualify for Worcestershire, I decided to stop off in Upton-upon-Severn for a couple of trads in the Cromwell Circular series. I followed this up with the CM in Little Malvern. As time was getting on, I finished off the day’s caching with a few of the Ledbury Town Trail Series with the last cache at the multi at the CM in Hampton Bishop, which I have pictured. Ledbury is in Herefordshire so I had cached in four new counties today.

5 multi, 13 traditional - 8 CMs, 1 SideTracked
