A busy autumn

As the summer started it looked as if there would not be as many caching visitors to the Western Isles as in previous years but folk seem to have left their holidays late this year with most visitors arriving in September and October but now the winds and bad weather are here things will likely quieten down.

Over the summer there have been 6 new caches on Lewis, including 2 earthcaches placed by four cachers who have not been here before which brings the total on Lewis to 92 ‘actual’ caches at this time. Still a way to go to the magic 100 but if the wind and rain dies down I’ll try to get out and sort this.

Down on Harris there have been 3 new caches including 1 earthcache again from folk who have not been here before. Many of the caches on Harris are quite difficult so a few more down there that are a bit more accessible would not go amiss. Judging by the logs many more people visit Harris than Lewis so there is a lot of potential there.

I have just come back from a couple of weeks in New England and had my first experience of American caches. Caching was not the primary reason for the holiday but we fitted in as many caches we could find without straying too far from our route. Caches in the USA seem quite different to those I have experienced over here (especially in the Western Isles) and range from the most mundane (stuck on the end of crash barriers) to some rather fiendishly clever ones that take quite a bit of finding. My finds over there have certainly given me some new ideas for caches here so look forward to some more difficult caches on Lewis over the coming months! Trouble is they seem to like trees quite a lot over there and there are not a lot of them here in the Western Isles!
