Day #306 – Dengie Driving

Trad: 8 Multi: 1
Walked: 4.0 miles

My ankle is feeling a lot better but I decided on more drive-bys around Dengie this evening just to be on the safe side. I managed a good number of finds, including a couple of Village Signs:

VS North Fambridge

VS Althorne

I made a bit of a cache and hash of K6 Althorne Station, getting the calculations for the multi wrong TWICE! What a dunce. Got there in the end, though!

This cheeky find was one of a new series by nathanjhunt called Roadside Revelations. Ha ha!

Day #305 – Dengie Drive-Bys

Trad: 4 Multi: 1 Puzzle: 2 Letterbox: 1
Walked: 3.5 miles

I slightly twisted my ankle yesterday after my caching walk, so decided to do some Dengie peninisula drive-bys today to give it bit of a rest.

FTF No. 26 - Yay!

I didn’t get going until nearly 6pm, just as a notification for a new Village Sign in Bicknacre dropped into my inbox. Oooh, you never know – might be on for FTF. I’m not normally one to chase them, but as I was going that way anyway, it would seem rude not to give it a shot.

It was a simple nano on a park bench, but yes, the log was blank when I arrived. Yay! FTF No. 26 in the bag.

There were a few Church Micros on the list, two in Latchingdon and one in Althorne, all picked up with ease.

I also found a couple of puzzles this evening – another new Really SideTracked, Cold Norton and the final Mr Mercator hide I hadn’t yet found, Lucky Eight.

There was also a lovely Letterbox hide in Althorne, Cheats Never Prosper. The cache title didn’t make much sense until I saw the great big stamp in the box! Bean & Sprout’s letterboxes always have the best stamps I’ve seen. I left a trackable for the mice to look after too.
