Day #214 – Thundersley Common

Trad: 6
Walked: 2.5 miles

I was caching with just Kitty!! today as Mr Crow wasn’t available. We chose a lovely little circuit around Thundersley Common to tackle and it turned out to be a great set of caches. There were some really inventive hides, but we were pleased to be able to find all six in the end.

Casper the ghost was guarding one cache which was quite a way up a tree, but we found the tool nearby and he was quickly in hand.

This yappy little dog wouldn’t shut up while we signed the log at one cache, but fled into the distance when I approached it for a photo.

The last find of the day was cleverly hidden in this Tribble! Kitty was being a particularly girlie wuss at this one, so I had to do the retrieval while she stood to one side, shuddering with horror!

Sadly, our last attempt was a DNF, but it was at a high DT cache in Whitmore Park. We went “tooled up” but sadly, not quite tooled up enough. We will have to return with better equipment!
