Day #339 – West Sussex Trio

Trad: 1 Challenge: 1 Virtual: 1
Walked: 3.6 miles

After attending a funeral of a local geocacher early this afternoon, I headed off to West Sussex for my planned trip away. On the way to Chichester, I stopped off to look for three Challenge caches, the Well-Rounded Cacher Challenge Bronze, Silver and Gold.

Unfortunately, I bombed out on Bronze (now proven missing and subsequently replaced) and Silver (just too much vegetation to search in the pouring rain). But I finally struck GOLD – wasn’t sure how, but there it was! Phew.

Nearer where I was staying, I climbed up Trundle Hill to bag a brace – an old Virtual and Trad. I got there to find the cloud base was almost the same height as the hill, and the wind was howling, but both caches were in the bag.

Satisfied with today’s finds, I headed off to my hotel to warm up and have some dinner.
