I needed to visit Nazeinng today and thought I would take the long way round to find a couple of outstanding older caches I need for my Jasmer grid.

The first was Wildlife Cache # 2 – Tree Pipit in Epping Forest, placed in January 2005. It was a bit muddy underfoot, but I found the cache in the end.

Next up was Coal Post #19 near Nazeing which has been in the wild since July 2003. It was a quick find, thankfully.

Then I relocated to a couple of locations in Nazeing, firstly to find a Church Micro puzzle cache which I’d solved the day before (still on my non-trad streak). Then onto the Church Micro in Nazeing itself, plus another located nearby.

After my logs today my Jasmer Grid is now looking nicely full for 2003 onwards. I should be able to fill Sept 2002 and May 2001 on my next visit to Newcastle, probably next year.

The only other UK caches I can find to fill in more squares are June 2001 (near Wokingham), Feb 2001 (the first in Wales) and Dec 2000 (north of Glasgow, Scotland’s first). If I want any more, it will have to be road trips to Denmark, Chicago and Oregon. Not for a while…
