Day #304 – Bolting Round Ulting Again

Trad: 7
Walked: 2.9 miles

When Peverel Blue’s series, Bolting Round Ulting first came out, I decided to do them piecemeal as fillers to keep my geostreak going. But since starting with the first few, plenty more local caches have been published closer to home.

Today I decided to go and collect the remaining 7 trads and their information so I could calculate where the big bonus was hiding.

No. 5 was a nice Letterbox pot, I even remembered to take along my own Smiley Stamp to mark up the logbook.

After a slightly wrong detour for No. 9, I eventually got the this view of the lake (and found the cache!). One more to collect on the way back to the car and I called it a day there. The calculation for the bonus is a bit involved and I thought it was better to do it at home so I didn’t get it wrong!

It’s good to have most of this series put to bed now, it was a lovely little walk.

Day #170 – Bolting To Ulting

Trad: 1
Walked: 2.4 miles

I had to wait in at home this morning for a parcel to be delivered, which was driving me nuts as the sun was out and I was itching to go out and play.

Eventually it arrived (containing a new camera – whoop!) so I headed to Ulting to take some photos along the canal and make a start on Peverel Blue’s Bolting Round Ulting ring. I’m doing them one by one rather than the whole lot at once. That way I get to keep my geostreak going for even longer, I need to eke out as many unfound caches as possible close to home!

As usual with a series plus bonus, I forgot to take note of the information for the bonus cache. But since I’ll be back here a few times, I hope I’ll remember to pick it up another time.
