Day #162 – Step Back In Time

Trad: 4 Puzzle: 1
Walked: 4.1 miles

The object of today’s outing was to visit a cache in Laindon, appropriately named Step Back In Time. It was hidden on 4th January 2006 – which makes today its 10th Birthday! Not only is it nice to make sure the cache gets a visit on its big milestone day, it also means I qualify for two Challenge Caches. Thankfully, it was an easy find once I was in the right area of the Marks Hill Nature Reserve.

Bouyed by my success here, I decided to have a look for a few more around Laindon, including a recently-solved mcwomble puzzle, You’re Barred, which was another easy spot once at GZ.

I also had a few DNFs, but that’s not uncommon with urban caches. Either I’m a bit rubbish or they’ve been muggled – could be either. And sometimes they are just hiding in plain sight, and it takes a while to realise!
