Day #297 – Amber Gricer

Trad: 4 Multi: 1 Event: 1
Walked: 1.4 miles

It had been raining for most of the day but it finally stopped around 4:30pm, so I headed out to find a few boxes before the Essex Meet #40 near Braintree. I hit the A12 just as the slow slog commute began, so arrived in Rivenhall End a little later than I had hoped.

Parking the car, I headed towards gillywig’s Amber along the railway line. It was  a multi with puzzle element thrown in – and of course, railway themed. It didn’t take long to locate the shiny amber pot after working out what to do with the numbers!

Despite being quite wet after my waddle through damp undergrowth, I then headed towards Silver End to pick up a Church Micro which was missing when I last passed.

From the modern, to the ancient, my next stop was a very quick cache and dash at Church Micro  1102, Bradwell.

I found another couple of trads around Bradwell, as well as scoping out some hides near the meet which will need my waders again.

Finally, I got to Essex Meet 40 about 7pm, just in time to bag the last car park space and order some dinner before the event began at 8pm!

I had a great evening chatting to folks and was delighted with my 6000 Finds certificate, which Shifty The Mega Duck sat guarding for me for the rest of the evening!
