Day #382 – Musical Girls’ Medley

Trad: 4 Letterbox: 1
Walked: 2.9 miles

I went for a short stroll near Billericay this afternoon, to collect a few of the replaced UK Mega caches around Barleylands. The new hides, by Musical Girls, were imaginative and fun.

The letterbox hide was definitely a must for today, as I was trying to maintain my Unusual types streak. Job done here!

Little Quacker was delighted to find a new place to live! Perfect fit. Although in the end, he decided to make it just a holiday place, and came home with me.

Today’s target was a decent walk in Langdon Hills Country Park, to pick up various traditional caches placed by muscial girls and other locals.

There was a good variety of containers and a few challenging hides.

There were also plenty of swaps in the caches – sadly I didn’t have anything with me to leave, so I didn’t take any swaps.

There were only 3 DNF’s and 21 finds, so a grand day out. There are still a few left to collect in the area, so I’ll be back – hopefully to pick up the ones which are missing.

Yay! I’ve made it to day 100 of my geostreak. I wanted to celebrate with a reasonable walk and cache series, so decided to head to Langdon Hills where there are numerous hides. I’ve heard good things about the location, and the hides by the musical girls.

The first find was actually in the Willow Park Nature Reserve, called X Specially For You (which has been on my radar for the Jasmer Challenge for a while).

I had parked up near a local Church Micro, to find it guarded by a fierce-looking little guy!

One of the other caches along the way was Martin’s Hole, located at an old well which used to draw Vange Water in the early 1900’s. It’s a bit of a ruin now, but quite intriguing.

I very nearly gave up on this one as the GPS was bouncing all over the place, but finally managed to find the tricky little blighter.

Another nice hide nearby was Holy Mosses – well camo’d with a large chunk of wood!

I had varying success with others in the woods – it wasn’t so bad while still daylight, but as the light was fading I wasn’t having much luck. So I think I need to return again another day and complete the search.

It was an enjoyable outing for my 100th Day. I’m glad to have completed the streak so far, so I can qualify for certain Challenge caches which require finds of 100 consecutive days. Will I carry on tomorrow? Probably! We’ll see how much longer I can keep it up. 366 days would be nice, but I’m not promising anything!
