Geocaches - 20
There is no point me walking in the Cotswolds again, as a Geocaching Round has shown me the most beautiful part and introduced to a new cache type - the Chirp.
These are the views you have to look forward to at Cache 5.
HKMHill, the CO, thinks of everything and directs you to a Parking Area at Stumps Cross.
|Stumps Cross - Does what it says on the tin|
On arrival at the monument, I turn on "Chirp Receiving Mode" in the Setup and wave the device around like a 1990's salesman trying to get a signal on a Nokia 6110 north of Watford Gap.

I can concentrate on the views now.
|And they are damn fine|

As discussed, the CO thinks of everything, including a handy bench to do the maths and programme into your GPS at the last clue.
Now its just a case of plodding back up the hill to the start. It's back on the Cotswold Way, so great paths and if you're tired, just look behind at the views.

All that remains to look for the bonus from the Chirp. Delighted to make a find.
The reply to my tweet states that the next Cotswold Trail is in progress. It's gonna have to go some to beat this one!
Thanks so much for the trail, HKMHill.
