In 2010, there were 27 expeditions undertaken by Benjw, MagicIan and Sourcerer. In the previous year there were only 19 so it's pleasing to see an increase in activity.

[edit] Expeditions

  • 25 December 2010 (Sat): Sourcerer failed to reach a wetland with mature trees standing in pools of water covered with ice. West of Great Hockham, Norfolk, UK. It was the first hour of Christmas day.

  • 28 October 2010 (Thu): In Thetford Forest. Benjw was there just after 4 pm, and enjoyed both the tranquility of the pine woodland, and a rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner from the nearby RAF base.
  • 20 October 2010 (Wed): Between woodland and a field, north of Bury St Edmunds. Benjw went, but couldn't get permission to access the point, despite local tenants egging him on.
  • 12 October 2010 (Tue): In a field west of Soham. Benjw cycled a 27-mile round trip, along nearly every type of road and path known to man.
  • 2 October 2010 (Sat): On a public footpath outside Stretham, near Ely. Benjw arrived at about 6:30 pm and found a geocache a mere ten metres away.
  • 1 October 2010 (Fri): Under a hedge in a field near Harston, south of Cambridge. Benjw visited, although it took two attempts to get the right spot.
  • 24 September 2010 (Fri): A grassy area between two houses east of Boston, Lincolnshire. Sourcerer arrived 90 seconds before midnight and waited for the hashpoint to vanish. This was hash 5 of a pentahash taking in Canterbury, London East, London West, Northampton and the Cambridge graticules.
  • 04 September 2010 (Sat): A sugar beet field east of Royston. Sourcerer visited this spot. It was the fourth point of a quad-hash covering Hull, Skegness, Northampton and Cambridge.
