Day #360 – Dashing Ducks

Trad: 1
Walked: 3.2 miles

Today is an auspicious day for Caz’s Little Quacker – a small blue rubber duck who is taking part in the HQ Duck Dash trackable race, which starts today. I found him in The Duck Pound II on Day #307. He wasn’t trackable then, but I have since found him a TB number of his own. I won’t be releasing him into the wild, but he will get dipped into each cache I find between now and 20th August when the race officially ends.

LQ’s first find was an easy one close to home at Barnes Mill Lock, but in the next month we are visiting two Megas, new counties and lots of different cache types, so he is really looking forward to seeing all the places we will go on our adventures.

Day #347 – Paper Mill Lock

Trad: 1
Walked: 0.7 miles

I was feeling immensely lazy today, so a quick trip to Paper Mill Lock was in order. I had previously DNF’d the new(ish) nano which was placed there a few weeks ago, but had spoken to the CO who had given me an extra clue, as the co-ords seemed a bit off.

Thankfully, I went straight to it today, and took a new waypoint to help update the page. Job done!
