Hi love reading these threads as enjoying a return to the hobby after my long break, had some great walks already this year, Fur Tor NYD, then all up around Yes Tor & Dinger, and a third walk on Bodmin, all of which yielded some great letterboxes and dare I say it, geocaches. Looking forward to ...
Hi Everyone, seasons greetings and all that.. a couple of weeks ago I found a very nice stamp, wet damaged, no book and very well grown in, looks quite old.
