Day #301 – A Trio Of Trads

Trad: 3
Walked: 4.9 miles

Julian and I had more muggle business to attend to in Margate this afternoon, but I was told I could escape for a walk if I wanted to. So I set off in blustery conditions, which of course got worse and worse the further away I was from the house. Grrr.

Noone Bathing Today!

Eventually I returned, quite damp from the rain, having found a trio along the cilff tops of Walpole Bay, with a couple of DNF’s thrown in too. Julian looked at me rather smugly as he’d been very sensible and stayed dry indoors!

Day #220 – Chignal Chasing #1

Trad: 1
Walked: 4.0 miles

The morning was spent organising getting my sick car to the garage. Another ride on the back of a tow truck, another expensive bill, no doubt! We shall have to wait and see what the diagnosis is.

Being without transport again, I had to resort to one of my standby caches, this time Chignal Chase #1. By the time I set off to catch the bus it was beginning to turn nasty. By the time I got off the bus to start my 1.5 mile round trip walk to the cache there was a bitter westerly wind blowing stinging rain and hail into my face!

Several times I wondered what the hell I was doing here, and the only thing which kept me trudging on was some of my favourite music piped through my headphones. Eventually I reached a very welcome sign – the target of my search.

Cache found, I had to turn around and trudge back to the bus stop, barely able to feel my legs from the bum to ankles. The things I do for this geostreak!
