6K And Counting!

Trad: 12 Letterbox: 1
Walked: 5 miles

After yesterday’s outing, I was 13 finds short of my 6K milestone. I decided to head to the Flitch Way around Braintree, so I took my geo-bike to see if I could tip the total across the line.

One of the first caches I found was Using The Right Tools by flossregularly. It was a brilliant field puzzle which had me chuckling at the cheek for the rest of the day, definitely a fave for that one!

I had a few DNFs but the numbers gradually ticked down until I was just 1 find away from the number I needed…

I had chosen Boom! by infinson as the target for my 6000th cache. It is a Letterbox and I needed a new type for my milestone to qualify for a challenge cache. I parked a little way away and hopped on my bike again for the rest of the journey. Passing this burned-out van along the way, I hoped my car would still be in one piece when I returned! Thankfully, it was.

I approached GZ and after a short search, the pot was located! I had brought along my two stamps for the logbook and my newly-earned 6000 Finds Geo-Achievement coin. Job done.

Of course, there is always time for one more, and on the way home I stopped off for another cache and dash hide, to bring my total up to 6001.
