Day #198 – Another DT Filled

Trad: 6 Challenge: 4 Letterbox: 2 Earth: 2
Walked: 7.4 miles

I had another trip to Kent today to find some Challenge Caches and a couple of earthcache hides, and mopping up a few extras along the way.

My first stop was Church Micro 3151 Horton Kirby – a Challenge cache which I qualified for on Sunday with my 20 CM finds. This hide also filled in the D4.5/T3 square of my DT grid (actually I did this one twice today!).

There were a couple of Letterbox hides which I picked up in passing, too. We don’t seem to have that many in Essex but the folks in Kent seem very keen to set them, so I grab them whenever I can.

VS~480 Fawkham Green (Dip slope Earthcache) is an unusual high DT Earthcache and recent addition to the Village Signs series. I hadn’t realised until I logged it that it’s actually the same D4.5/T3 which I had just bagged this morning. So that’s good for Loop 2 of the DT grid! I also enjoyed a jolly good lunch at the Pub near the village sign, I can recommend it if anyone is passing.

The final earthcache of the day was at Church Micro 2372… West Kingsdown- St Edmund which I hadn’t had time to investigate when I was nearby a few weeks ago doing the Cool Cuban Spirit series with Kitty!! and Mr Crow. It’s also near three more Challenge caches which I picked up while I was about it.

So all in all, an enjoyable day out. The new DT means I have just 14 squares left to find now. Onwards and upwards!
