I thought I might not be capable of having walk after munching Christmas dinner, so set off just after breakfast for a festive cache hunt. My chosen target was a D4 – my reasoning was that if it was going to take a bit of searching, it would be best to do it on a day when hardly anyone was about.

However, I struck lucky and almost tripped over the cache on arrival at GZ. It was well camouflaged but I was glad to have found it so quickly. Now home to my parents’ to stuff myself with Christmas fodder!

I enjoyed an outing today with Shifty The Mega Duck to the GeoCoffeeClub #12 – Festive Flavours event in Braintree Freeport this morning. Shifty got a lot of attention, as usual! He was dressed smartly for Christmas:

Then off to White Notley and Cressing to try and mop up a few stragglers around The Essex Way – mixed success with Infinson’s hides – they are usually tricky and he refuses to give any hints! At least I got Slow Down – and a nicely themed container it was too.

Bit of a disaster this afternoon, I discovered my car wouldn’t start again. I had had trouble at the end of my road trip on 4th October this year, but it had been to the garage and had behaved itself since.

So I had to leg it over the Chelmer Village to pick up on of my “emergency” caches which I’ve been holding off finding for just such an eventuality. It was an 8-mile round trip on foot for just once cache, but the show must go on!
