    Waaahaaaaaay : The Pirates of the Cache-ibbean have found their 100th cache.........................................in a Pigeon's Bum in Brum!!!! Garrrrr it don't get much better than that eh??? :lol: :lol: :lol:

    We've just spent a weekend caching in Dudley and can THOROUHLY recommend LollyBob's Walk to the Shops Series!! We walked around 9 miles that day and got all but 2 in the series (in our defence there were a LOT of anglers and dog walkers, then shoppers at the end), stealth was required at most of them and there were a whole range of containers............BRILLIANT!

    But obviously our best was the 100th one as it was just down the road from the First Mates house in Dudley.........he can't believe how many times he used to walk his dog past it (obviously pre caching days&#33.

    And BIG thanks to FunLovingGeocacher not only for the cache but also the very prompt congratulatory email

    Dudley's a lovely place - I've seen THE DUDLEY BUG (under the zoo). And then there's the Black Country Museum, too. Oh - and after searching for 6 months, I once managed to buy a bored, polished, 12G940 head in a shop in Dudley.

    Special bonus prize for the first person to know what a 12G940 head is, and what special mods I needed to make to the carbs to get it to work in a 1275GT - without googling........

    YEAH I love the Black Country Museum!!


    Oh and for the thing you bought it sounds like it's rude, and the mods were done using a hammer???

    well the 1275 was from a fine example of english engineering so as a wild guess...

    either a manifold, some part of an air intake or an exhaust part???

    i miss my old one!!

    :unsure:
    They have a rusty pair of parts?
    A good once-over with a wire brush and a liberal coating of WD-40 may help.



    Congratulations cacherelle&#33;
