Trad: 16 Puzzle: 1
Walked: 8.8 miles
I was out with Kitty!! and Mr Crow again today. Our first target for the day was the D1/T5 hide, the Cottage Pie Bonus cache near Ongar. A tree over water, Kitty volunteered to scale the obstacle, and the cache was quickly spotted.
This nicely fills another DT square fore (and us all). My grid now looks like this, 10 left!
After that success, we relocated to Takeley to attempt Run Around’s Takeley Trail. But first there was time to find the Church Micro to pick up. There were lovely patches of snowdrops in the churchyard.
We had mixed success with the trail, there were lots of great hides but we also failed to find 6 of the 17 on the loop! And we had to take quite a diversion on the walk to avoid this collapsed bridge:
This one was an easy find but more tricky to open! It took at least 4 hands, glad I wasn’t trying to do this one on my own.
Fantastic log book here, very original.
Kitty!! and Crow (meanies) handed me this one to open. They both have similar puzzle boxes and knew its secret. I got there eventually.
So, a good day out, but it’s a shame we were so rubbish at finding so many. We’ll be back to try again another time.
