Someone's back garden on Parkway in Gildersome


The Expedition[edit]

This would be our second attempt, and looked to be a bit more risky than the first due to it's location being in someone's back garden.....

We decided to gear up for the venture by going to Nandos at Birstall first, as no one likes sneaking onto other people's property when they're hungry. Once finished we drove to Parkway and stopped outside the neighbours house. The occupants of the house where the co-ordinates lay were home. Bollocks. The neighbours house however, was unoccupied! To follow was a bit of a blur, I began by sneaking up the neighbours drive towards the back garden, when the I managed to set off the security light outside the house where the co-ordinates were. I may have wee'd a little bit, but luckily no one came out to see what was going on. I then crouched down by the fence and got level with the co-ordinates in the neighbours garden, then a quick bob up and hang over the fence thrusting my phone holding hand in the direction of the location in a last ditch effort to get as close as possible and a quick screen grab before legging it back to the road where Jason had kindly kept the car running and we drove off as quick as we could. Turned out I mucked up the screen shot and managed to knock the volume which covers up the distance, but I admit I was not close enough and the closet I got was around 8m.
