With the car back in action again (hurrah!) I chose two hides south of Billericay as today’s targets, which have been green boxes on the map for ages among a sea of smiley faces. The first was a Bean & Sprout puzzle set before the Mega which I had solved a while back but not had the chance to look for yet, Pitch Up – A Mega Camping Puzzle.

Tales in previous logs of requiring a machete seemed to be greatly exaggerated – the path wasn’t too bad and the prize was quickly spotted!

Gotcha!
Gotcha!

The other straggler was Fordyfamilys Bridge 3 Crouch Cache, a straightforward enough hide but at a place where you’re always just passing through and it’s a bit tricky to park up for a cache and dash. So I walked from Great Burstead and made a quick find at GZ.

It’s funny but the road at that point barely looks like you’re crossing a bridge, so the river is hardly noticeable until you are on the pavement looking over the wall.
