Is there a cache no.209 in the UK?

As a sequel to my previous post, I decided to check what is the highest number (of an unbroken sequence) available in the UK.

Obviously the famous Skeg to Ness series goes up to #207, so from no.208, what about the Church Micro series? Well, it's okay for no.208, but no.209 has been archived, and I can't find another 209 cache in the U.K., so it looks like a trip to Denmark, Sweden, Norway or the U.S.A. could be neccessary!

Countin' Bones is countin' caches

A few months ago I launched this Travel Bug, X400;

(whose name derives from the last 4 characters in it's logging code) with the intention of seeing if cachers who find it can take it to numbered caches in numerical order from 1. So far it has slowly worked it's way to number 3, although it wasn't logged into the cache. So, I figured why not try it myself with a TB that I carry with me, taking photographs at each stop?

Introducing Countin' Bones, who made his first stop today at Dave & Andy's Stationary 1;

I've not shown the actual cache container, so as to avoid giving away the surprise!

Now, where to for a number 2 cache..?

TravelBugBaja™ update

bl4ch4dd3r's '84 Pontiac Travel Bug has moved up one position into 2nd place after being dropped into this cache in Lancashire.

Overseas blog readers will probably be bemused by the cache name!

How do you keep a cacher in suspense?

I'll tell you later!

Seriously, sorry for anyone who's been waiting for an update on this blog, but I've been too busy driving this:

Yes,  I've left Boots and moved to these guys. The hours can be long as the entire country is covered from the one warehouse in Shirebrook, Derbyshire (the above photograph was taken in Watford, Herts), but I'm really enjoying it!

Anyway, check out my new blog for details of my new Travel Bug Race, open to all.

Happy caching, STP
