New Caches

First we must apologise for not maintaining this feature while we have been away – I thought it would be easy to keep it updated but with very indifferent internet connections and a very busy schedule we found it impossible.

This week we have a new series around Barmouth, one at Llandanwg and one on Anglesey.

Other News

We have missed the deadline for publishing an event for International Earthcache Weekend, 9-10th October, so sadly there will be no event this year. There is a souvenir for finding and logging an Earthcache anytime over the weekend.

Finally we would like to take this opportunity to wish sionyn68 a very speedy recovery from Covid 19, the hazards of being a teacher, and hope to see both Sion and Wendy at our next event.

Post Card from the Azores, Flores

After five and a half years planning we are here in Flores, the most westerly point of Europe, surrounded by the Atlantic ocean, next stop the USA. The scenery is truly amazing and we find ourselves repeatedly exclaiming WOW. With Waterfalls over half a kilometre high and volcano calderas two a penny here it’s hard to describe the beauty. Geocaches however are a contrast often a small fragile plastic bottle from a popular local non alcoholic drink being abandoned in strategic locations, without the respect of private property or stone walls. Our lack of Portuguese is a handicap even with google translate often the text and hint are often incomprehensible.

Nosh & Natter 40

Jude with her leaving present

Tuesday saw the return of Nosh & Natters at the Anglesey, Caernarfon, the hardy few braved the cold August evening to enjoy the view of the Menai Straits. It also gave us a chance to give Jude100 an early send off as they are moving to Lancashire later in the month. Bob and Judy have been part of 9US since the beginning and have been part of many adventures over the years, their absence from events, especially CITOs, will be very much missed. On behalf of all the 9 Usual Suspects and their Geocaching Friends we would like to wish them all the very best in their ‘posh’ new home.

Will the flag be flying in Ainsdale?
