A few tears today from the hard-working UK Essex Mega committee – it was time to say goodbye to all the travellers from near and far at the Goodbye To Essex event at Barleylands.

Once the event was done, Alistair and I decided to have a walk and find a few more of the caches local to Barleylands which we hadn’t had time to find until now. There were the three Flitch Trials themed caches, which required a bit of brainpower to get the logs out.

My favourite of the day was this brilliant little box, 911 Emergency. It must have taken a lot of time to prepare!

We have had mega weather for Mega Week – and the blue sky continued to smile on us today.

The final bit of fun was the Flash Flood cache which is hidden the other side of a stream under a road bridge. We came fore-warned so I was sent across the treacherous waters in my wellies. Alistair was ready with his camera in case disaster struck – thankfully I remained upright, much to his disappointment!
