Oregon, power trail, hallowe'en and earthcache!

It's been a busy week!

Saturday saw me in Chesham walking the first 49 caches of the Chiltern 100. Found 31 of 'em, which was a record for me in one day, and I'll be back to find the rest soon. Needless to say, I was knackered at the end of it!

The Oregon performed well, sometimes going a little scatty under heavy tree cover, but generally keeping a strong signal pretty much wherever I went. I'm loving the fact that I've now got everthing I need in the one unit, it makes things very much easier and more convenient, not to mention very environmentally friendly!

My first mystery cache, 'Hallowe'en' (GC1G51H), was published this week and found almost immediately! Well done to Andy_uk63 for a really quick FTF (not to mention the 8 he got the next day, beating me to it on what must have been a REALLY early start!). Hopefully Andy, and subsequent finders of 'Hallowe'en' will be pleased and amused by the container and the contents of the cache. I'm thinking of coming up with a series of caches with a similar theme …

And, after a small hiccough, my earthcache has now been published. It's called 'Camulodunum Defended' (GC1H7FC) and is the first of (hopefully) three I have planned.

That's about it for this blog, I have no idea how many miles I've walked this week, but it's quite a few, so I'm off to have a rest!
