The Sandpit

Recommended Posts

Now that I am back in MY sandpit I am free of those pesky BLACKJACKS!!! :D The closest that we have here are tumbleweeds - and then they are pretty scarse as well. OTOH we have dust/sand. :o

The Sandpit cachers keep on taking the 1st prize for humor.

 

We (Gauteng) have some caching options down in Natal;

1. Going for Noddy’s devious and master minded caches

2. Solving Rhino’s difficult puzzles

3. Going to the middle of nowhere (between JHB and Durban) Wazat’s caches

4. or Blackjack Bailey’s caches

 

Choices…. choices…… choices…… :D:blink:

 

Do not forget there is a world North of Ballito :D

Hello there Sandpit Dwellers, thought id just share a little info on our up and coming trip. We leave for Scotland on the 27th July for 3 days then make our way through Edinburgh where we are hoping to try and meet up with Discombob and Goofster, then its down to Richmond,North Yorkshire and Harrogate where the Mega Event is taking place and finally on the 4th August on the ferry back home. All in all about 67 roadside caches planned and plenty to do while we are staying in the various locations.

 

About the Mega Event it's been held in Harrogate North Yorkshire. So far there is about just over 900 people attending from several countries. It looks to be a fantastic event, with separate rooms allocated for TB's and coins :D;) . So i will drop by here when we return and let you all know how it went.

Right KZN is another cache richer... And I do not think it will be found all too soon. Come on guys it is a little hike and not too hard on the body, the views are great and if you are lucky you can see the vultures circling overhead. The challenge is on...... FTF mmm probably Rhino! But where are the others?

Has Blackjack Bailey left the country? :D Haven't seen him on the Forum for a while. Neither has he been too active with the caching either. 9 July - that is AGES ago for him!! :D

Mmm there is a shortage of Black Jacks so he has no natural habitat. Most of them Black Jacks have been torched... I think our intrepid cacher may have withdrawl symptoms... Either that or he is waiting to lay down his sneaky Black Jack Cache... LoL. Neville where are you.....?

I'm glad to hear that theres no Blackjacks around in KZN. They are all up here in Gauteng. Damm you have to wear overalls just to park your car. hehe.

 

happy caching

We are thinking of going for a walk on Saturday the 6th September - in the berg - I think you all know where we are heading....a short walk to the top... if you are keen let us know and we can make it a plan.... :D

Not just a walk in the park, the last time I climbed that sort of terrain I was practising for Kili.

Will be there... And there might be another new cacher joining us.... Was I supposed to say i was going to be there... I though it was a given. I have to put in a cache note and a logbook still at Noddy's request. But I think he will just have to find out if I did put one in or not.... LoL.... Er Cathedral for Next year sounds like a good idea too. This time we better take ropes and drag the man up there or what do you say Stuart....There is no way he isn't gonna relax on the next trip and work on his tan.....

Yes Megaben was lonely in 2006 - there are a few more of us up here now - Jin & Tonic, Macbow and myself. Think Radebuddyz is still around in R/bay as well.

Yes it’s that time of the year.

We want to start planning the Sandpit Christmas Event. Make a booking in your diaries for the 29 Nov 08. We will finalise the venue and time later, but the theme would be again like last year with a braai and to help the Toy story campaign.

Sounds good, date booked - this year we should be able to make it...

I'm keen to visit the Rustenburg area for a caching spree - it looks like there are a lot of good quality caches there within a relatively small radius.

 

I'm thinking of driving up on a Friday, caching like mad on the Saturday and Sunday, and then driving back on the Monday.

 

Is there anyone in the Sandpit who would like to join me on this adventure and share travel costs? I'm hoping to go there within the next month or two.

The KZN Sandpit Christmas event is published. The event will take place Saturday 29 Nov 2008 12H00 onwards (The reseve gate closes 17h00). I know I made a mistake with the date on the details on the cache, but the listing date was correct. I have sorted it out now.

The event (Braai) will take place at the Mariannwood Reserve braai area.

If it rains we have plan “B” ready and then we can all go to Mug & Bean in Pinetown.

Hope to meet the new cachers and share stories with the old hands.

But what i want you to se is this video another cacher made at the cache, http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=3LIHN-23vCg . Now this is what i love about what we do, finding places like this.

that makes it more than one a day.... I bet we can all get out there and add a cache each and suddenly we have more caches than days in the month. Challenge to all KZN cachers is out new caches in November for the GP December exodus.....

It is with a solemn hand on our heart we write tonight - we, being Rhino and Hedgehog, give our dog, Willow for those that do not know, an Ouma rusk on occasions.... however it appears Willow has taken to hiding her rusk under a rock in the garden ( we did not see her with the GPS) - but are sure she will be able to relocate the 'hide' later.... We think we have taken her on one too many cache hunts.....

Another great KZN event - well done DiePienaars - pity fluffy escaped out of the open gate - dogs that stray can be a real problem - never fear, they usually turn up at a local animal shelter! :D

Yes well done to DiePienaars... A wonderful day meeting old friends and putting faces to the names of the newer cachers... Well organised as usual. Thanks. Hope fluffy wags his tail again soon.... Why does he always run off with other cachers I wonder? Are you looking after him properly???
