Stroud stroll

Back to the Thames and Severn Canal today. I parked in the same place as before, and instead of going east, I went west, until I got to Stroud. There I toured around the town picking up the caches there, then back east, but by a different route from before, picking up several more along the way.

41 finds today, 1 DNF and 1 CNA (could not access because that part of the track along the canal was closed). Just as I got back to the car, at 4:30, it started to rain heavily. Just in time!

I used two HK batteries; battery 1/2 was fully used, and gave me 4.35 AH (nominal 5) for 11.1 km and 30 caches. Battery 3/4 gave me another 9 km for 3.7 AH, and still had lots of life left.

And some interesting sights along the way.

A Great Western Railway boundary marker

A travel bug hotel. They aren't usually quite so wqell appointed.

An unexpected piece of art along the canal.

The Jack Clock plaque

And there's the clock.

Pretentious? Moi?

This was the other side of the road from the Pink Cabbage.

  1. I use a Great Western boundary marker as a hide to a cache of mine :)
