What fun this year has been!
Later that same evening, we watched our Swindon Wildcats claim a (rare, this season) victory, versus the Bracknell Bees.
Onto two weeks of W:
We started with a visit to Coate Water – we had a nice walk around the lake in the cold, and then went on the train – here’s me going “woo wooooo!!” on the choo chooooo :)
Waymarking.com is the sister site to geocaching – it is similar in as much as it provides GPS co-ordinates to follow to a place of interest, and when you visit said place, you can log your visit and get a “point” – but there are no actual physical containers to find.
I decided that W fortnight was as good a time as any for us to find our first waymark, so I did a search around the Swindon area only to discover, well, not much of interest really. It seems that, with the exception of the benchmark/trig point category, nobody has set up many waymarks around here.
One did jump out at me though – in the category “Wikipedia Entries” – the Swindon Wildcats! Yes, it turned out we could claim a Waymarking point by going to a Wildcats game :) Not exactly a chore as we are season ticket holders and go every week anyway :) :) :) So that got us a triple W whammy :)
I'll be back soon with the very last A-Z Year blog entry. Sob.
