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.

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?
