Trad: 1 Multi: 2 Earth: 1 Event: 1
Walked: 7.4 miles
I went up to London this afternoon to attend the Mad Cachers’ Tea Party event organised jointly by local pan314159 and avroair, who was visiting from the USA. Everyone was encouraged to wear a mad hat – and there were certainly lots to be seen!
Extraordinary creations were the most fun – there was a popular vote for the best and this bonkers hat was the winner! Even Nemo looks surprised!
My own creation was not a modest affair – furry bunny ears, LED lights and a full-blown tea party going on around the brim and on top. It turned a few heads. I was glad it survived the journey by train in my picnic bag.
There were many tempting shinies on offer two, as several hard-core coin collectors were there with their duplicates and swaps. I was very weak!
As well as the event, I also managed to squeeze in a multi and trad find beforehand, plus another multi and earthcache on the way home. The SideTracked EarthCache – Euston Station Geology cache (also by pan314159) was another one which has been on my London target list for ages. It was still busy this evening, but a little patience eventually paid off and I got the info I needed.
