S.E Uk cachers please help

34 posts in this topic

We had the genius idea of using a travelbug to choose our honeymoon destination, which happens on 22/5/10.

After sitting in a travelbug hotel (nr Canterbury, Kent) for some 5 months. The very thoughtful owner of the cache took our bug to New York, wow how exciting never been, really happy to be going potentially. Anyway after an absolutley awful day yesterday right at the end Im told an English couple have bought our bug back to Prats Bottom, Kent. Now Woppy my partner thinks this is hilarious, I might agree in a decade or so. Im sure Prats Bottom is a lovely place to some people and I have nothing personal against the place, but it's in our own county and to be frank I feel like I won the lottery, only to find it's a tenner.

 

Please could someone visit this cache (High Elms) and take the bug to anywhere but Kent, even Slough is looking impressive now

 

Thanks

 

Jules <_<

Oh dear

 

That's a pity

 

How sad

 

:)

 

:D

 

I think this topic might get more responses over in the UK Forums... Maybe one of the Forum Mods will move it in that direction once the US wakes up. <_<

I was just trying to see exactly where the TB has been placed and I see that the "High Elms" cache has not yet been published.

 

Hmmm.

 

Let's hope it gets through the review process and your TB gets the chance to be picked up and moved somewhere more suitable soon.

Personally I think no body should find the cache to allow the honeymooning couple to the grab the FTF <_<

Don't do it! It's a "curse of the FTF" cache :D

 

I am, however, giggling in a very childish manner over your TB's current location. If only you were getting married after the start of August, I could have taken it to Antigua for you.

Woppy here this time...

 

Well... I must say a 6,988.2 mile round trip for it to end up 34 miles from where we live, with a month to go, tickled me pink.

 

<_<

 

I had been wondering if it'd make its way 34.1 miles East and end up at the cache we've got hidden in the wall of the church where we're getting hitched. Oooh, that'd be just too good a tale!! ... but how VERY efficient ... I could nip out and grab it whilst waiting for her to arrive and "job done" as they say!! Wedding and Honeymoon all completed the same afternoon :D

 

Well I see Ryuchan was as good as their word and that Steinbos has grabbed our bug so all is not lost for Jules! Though, I'm gutted, as I had been flicking through the Nauticalia catalogue and been eyeing up the Night Vision Goggles that I could have treated myself to if I could have kept the Honeymoon to a quick day-trip :)

 

Tee hee!

We used to drive past Pratt's Bottom on our way from London to the coast. I always begged to stop and have tea in Pratt's Bottom.

 

Just think what you could tell you kids...

I'm kind of hoping it ends up in Titsey Hill which isnt that far from Pratts Bottom.

I know a pub in Titsey Hill, lovely fire place and once Woppy's stomping ground.

 

Anyway Im happy that the bug is out of there- Pratts Bottom has tearful memories of getting lost just off the M25. I thank you and anytime i can help in our area then I will

 

I salute you :P

I would have thought slight North of here would be an ideal honeymoon location.

However with the volcanic ash it might just have done you a favour.

When I was a schoolboy I think it was safe to say boys found that sort of thing far more funny than girls did.

Times have changed!!... the other week, driving back from Pevensey with our 4 daughters, we drove through N50'51.998 E0'12.191 and it's Northern neighbour and the sniggers and comments I'm sure out-did ANYTHING me and my schoolboy chums would have come up with on such a trip!! :D

I see today the TB has made it to S Australia - if thats to far or with the volcanic cloud interfering with flying - I notice if you pan out the map - many places are the same name as those in UK

 

Dulwich - Kensington - Winsor - Edinburgh - Piccadilly - Bridgewater - Kilburn - Heathfield - Birkemhead - Camden

Spoilt for choice lol

 

Wherever you end up - Hope you have a fantastic day - even better honeymoon and a wonderful life

last-minute offer to Aussieland.

But where has the TB been for the last month? !!!!! :confused.com(

I know this is a hefty bump for this topic but does anyone know whether it has a happy ending?

 

Where did Wop & Jules end up for their honeymoon? Did they go to Australia?

 

Anyone know? :)
