Day #390 – To Berkshire Via Kent!

Trad: 5 Multi: 1 Challenge: 1 Letterbox: 1
Earth: 1
Walked: 5 miles

I’m heading to Imber Village in Wiltshire this weekend (more of that tomorrow),  but first I had to drive to Margate in Kent for  meeting this afternoon. You never know what the motorways are going to do, so I set off super early and had time for a few finds in Kent before the meeting.  Since I was passing, I stopped off briefly for the 13th Day Of Every Month Challenge just south of Whitstable. Then the T3.5 Earthcache near Reculver was high on the agenda.

I had lunch next to the pretty little Church at Reculver before doing the Church Micro.

Once my meeting was done, it was back on the motorways, but I had time for one or two on my way to my hotel in Berkshire this evening – the payoff for travelling on the M25 on a Friday night!

The CM at Eversley was hardly a Micro! Little Quacker met a blue friend in the big ammo box we found. Why Eversley? Well I needed just one CM in the CM44xx range to finally qualify for The Mega Church Micro (CM) Challenge Cache  and this wasn’t too far off my planned route. Job done!

The last stop of the day was to Burghclere Memorial Chapel for the CM there, before turning in for the night and settling down to log the day’s finds.
