Extreme Dominoes

About a week ago, the Andy Capp cartoon was very appropriate for my geocaching adventures (although I don’t swear).

Andy Capp and Extreme Dominoes.
My geocaching profile has the following picture on it.

I’ve been asked about my Extreme Dominoes photo a couple of times so I thought that the publication of this cartoon would be a good way to kick off the story –
We had been doing a series of caches that involved collecting dominoes and dice as we walked around the country park. At the end of about 7 stages, one of the puzzles involved laying all the dominoes together as if you playing dominoes and then adding the numbers at either end of the sequence. As we were trying to get the solution worked out, I grabbed my box of signature item dominoes out and we laid them on the ground to ensure we were doing it correctly. (As it turned out there were two possible answers – we got the *other* one). As we were doing this, in a middle of a public footpath, so more walkers wandered past and gave us a funny look. One of the people in the team shouted out “Extreme Dominoes” to them and they nodded their heads as if that explained everything and carried on.
For those of you who have not heard of Extreme Ironing (which is where the comment was based) then visit the Extreme Ironing Website with more links and videos than you can imagine.
