Day #318 – Of Abbots And Kings

Trad: 6 Puzzle: 1 Letterbox: 1 Virtual: 1
Walked: 7.5 miles

This evening I took a trip over to Kings Langley and Abbots Langley to pick up a few specific caches. The first was a letterbox hide, which is part of a series in Kent – yes, really! It was an easy enough find, but I made the mistake of not wearing long sleeves and got nettled to death for my troubles. Ouch.

The next stop was an old Virtual in the grounds of Kings Langley church. There’s supposed to be a “sword” up there somewhere! Couldn’t see it, but found the info to enable me to log the find.

Then I took a little potter around the town and along the Grand Union Canal to find a few more trads.

After that successful mission, I relocated to Abbots Langley a short drive away, to look for a cache with D5/T4 rating, Something In The Pipeline. I had come prepared, so was able to find the little blighter without too much trouble! Must be getting good at this!

In preparation for my visit, I had already solved the puzzle for the nearby Side Tracked – Kings Langley hide. I passed this wind turbine on the way, just as dusk was falling. A good evening’s hunting with only one DNF.

I’m back to solo caching again today as Alistair has gone home to the North East.

I’ve had Doremi Fasol Latido on my solved list for a while (admittedly I had to have a nudge in the right direction to even attempt it) and quickly polished off Are You On Our … myself yesterday – so today was the day to go out and find them.

Puddles!

No problems at Doremi but the ground was quite uneven around the other cache GZ, I managed to lose my balance and ended up sitting down in a large patch of stinging nettles – ouch! Ah well, it wouldn’t be a good day’s caching without some sort of minor CRI, would it?
