Kimbolton konundrum

Out with SimplyPaul on bikes to do this series that I've had my eye on for a while. We parked nearby, and set off. The first one took us a little while to find, then a little while longer to solve the puzzle of how to get to the cache. And so it went on. Each cache was clever, ingenious and nicely contructed, and we found 18 out of 19 (eventually) and I gave a Favourite point to each of them. I don't want to give away any spoilers, but I would urge anyone to attempt this series. What I will tell you, is that I guessed it might take two, maybe three hours to complete the circuit, and it actually took six, so take enough to drink with you and allow yourself enough time. Because that's 19 non-easy caches.

Then on to Poshrule's Birthday Bash in Yaxley; he has over 900 caches up and running, and I've done most of them. The caches aren't difficult, but it's always fun to bike along one of his circuits.

And then we finished off the day by biking around Yaxley to bring our day's haul up to a respectable number (32) and then back to Kimbolton to have another go at two of the caches we'd failed on first time around. We'd gotten some help from the folks at the event, and in the evening we found them quickly.


  1. Hey What is the name of the series you are recommending? As I tried searching with the title of the post and it came back with nothing!


  2. Kimbolton Kunundrum. I don't know why the cache setter is spelling it that way.
