Mega Day has come around… and much fun was had by all. Alistair and I were camping overnight – so we had some breakfast at the tent before heading over to the festivities.

The Mega Logbook was a huge deckchair – we had to sign the cover! Caz Woz ‘Ere

We particularly enjoyed some of the Lab caches on offer. Hook a duck and find the one with a code on the bottom:

Duckies - Lab Cache
Duckies – Lab Cache

Open each locker to discover if there was a code behind the door:

I met Signal The Frog during the event.

What a friendly, happy dude! And the perfect ambassador for Geocaching. Alistair had a few moments to relax in the big deck chair too.

After the main event was done, we wandered around the Mega Amble – a series of 12 traditional caches close to the camp site, which had been published especially for the event. The 12th brought up my 3100th find (my 3000th having been found just a week before the Mega).
