For some reason, the TB is registered as having traveleld 225 miles - exactly twice the distance that it has done in reality. Not sure how this happened. Will just have to remember to subtract 112.5 every time I recalculate :-(

Should be some more moves soon both Nant yr Arian and Elvis rock have lost their TBs in the last three days

Shame as I planned to move one or either into a Berkshire Motorway Mayhem cache when I went down to Southampton next week

I heard that mine has been picked up from Elvis Rocks but has nto been placed anywhere yet. the cachers came from Staffordshire, so it all helps

Tinkerbell's bug was finally placed in Blue yesterday; Samurais Bugs were also started off, in the Red cache, and theywere picked up this morning, so the race really is on for all the little bugs now

Sarah Shropshire has placed my bug in a cache near Telford. At Elvis Rocks he had done 12.1 miles. its 73.8 miles to the new cache from here, yet my total mileage is now 71.8?? Hmm...

Hi everyone. I moved on 12 miles over the weekend.

Since then, I have been grabbed by a very experienced geocacher who travels all over the world...

I have taken the liberty of arranging the updates into a "leaderboard", with highest milage first...
