Yay! I’ve made it to day 100 of my geostreak. I wanted to celebrate with a reasonable walk and cache series, so decided to head to Langdon Hills where there are numerous hides. I’ve heard good things about the location, and the hides by the musical girls.

The first find was actually in the Willow Park Nature Reserve, called X Specially For You (which has been on my radar for the Jasmer Challenge for a while).

I had parked up near a local Church Micro, to find it guarded by a fierce-looking little guy!

One of the other caches along the way was Martin’s Hole, located at an old well which used to draw Vange Water in the early 1900’s. It’s a bit of a ruin now, but quite intriguing.

I very nearly gave up on this one as the GPS was bouncing all over the place, but finally managed to find the tricky little blighter.

Another nice hide nearby was Holy Mosses – well camo’d with a large chunk of wood!

I had varying success with others in the woods – it wasn’t so bad while still daylight, but as the light was fading I wasn’t having much luck. So I think I need to return again another day and complete the search.

It was an enjoyable outing for my 100th Day. I’m glad to have completed the streak so far, so I can qualify for certain Challenge caches which require finds of 100 consecutive days. Will I carry on tomorrow? Probably! We’ll see how much longer I can keep it up. 366 days would be nice, but I’m not promising anything!
