A gap in a hedge just to the side of a lane running from Kidlington to North Yarnton, near the level crossing on the line that connects Oxford to Banbury.

Geohashpoint 2014-04-21 51 -1A Easter Bank Holiday weekend: what a perfect time for geohashing: and not just because of the warm weather and the fact that you can plan your expedition an extra day in advance, thanks to the exchange closures! No, it’s a great time especially because today’s hashpoint was a mere 300 metres from my house, as the crow flies (though the crow, at least, didn’t have to work his way down to to the bridge over the canal in order to get there).

The hashpoint turned out to be in a gap in the hedge, half-way between down the road connecting a canal bridge to a level crossing. We saw a squirrel.

On the way back, Dan insisted that Ruth (and Annabel, who didn’t get much say in the matter) came with him to find nearby geocaches GC3P0QK and GC3P0RJ on the way back home, before they spent the day out in the sunshine exploring Oxfordshire in general.

Dan Q found GLDZ1P1C BIKERZ – Baldon Lane

This checkin to GLDZ1P1C BIKERZ - Baldon Lane reflects a log entry. See more of Dan's cache logs.

Found with fleeblewidget and her baby after a trip to the Arboretum. Great work with a clever (if easy!) hiding place: I’m gonna learn from that. Saw some motorcyclists, but none of them stopped, but as we drove away (after picking up the car from across the road) we saw two other cachers hunting for it. We waved from the car but I’m not sure if they heard/understood what I was saying! TFTC

Dan Q found GLDYYY6M Route Canal – Bridge View

This checkin to GLDYYY6M Route Canal - Bridge View reflects a log entry. See more of Dan's cache logs.

After an extended search, it was my partner fleeblewidget who, despite being encumbered by the baby-carrier harness, first spotted this well-concealed little cache. Feels like the difficulty should be 2 stars to me, but maybe I’m just going soft. TFTC.
