Day #200 – Two New DTs

Trad: 3 Puzzle: 4
Walked: 4.9 miles

I planned a day out with Kitty!! and Mr Crow today, initially to find The Tapper near Hatfield Peverel, which required some wading and me being part of the brawn to pull Kitty out of the river!

It was freezing in the river, so I was glad Kitty had volunteered to do the wading. She retrieved the big box quite quickly.

Yay! She Got It!

There was a fab method of “signing” the log! We loved it.

Once we had done that one, we dropped Mr Crow off for a walk to do some maintenance on some of his caches and we headed off to A Bad Sine – which I had solved ages ago but had been putting off finding. Since it filled a DT grid square, I  had resolved to try it soon. Kitty agreed to accompany me, even though she had already found it.

Job done, we retired to a nearby garden centre for a hearty late lunch and to wait for Mr Crow!

The we went onto Rally Round 80 Mr Crow and a few others, but RR80 filled a second DT grid square for me. We also picked up a few more along the way.

Now I only have 12 squares left to go:

Day #51 – A Big Church Micro

Multi: 1
Walked: 1.5 miles

This one has been on my list to do for a while. Having gathered the required info I quickly calculated the final and set off. Arrived to find a biggish tree surrounded by a prickly thicket. Did my best to search but it clearly wasn’t there.

So I looked again at my co-ords – and despite having calculated them correctly, I had input them into the GPS incorrectly. D’oh! Easy find as dusk was falling once I was at the proper place, but the “micro” appeared to be a Church Small in reality!
