Last year we fell in love with the English public footpaths, which we visited both in May and August, and only a few days after returning from our August trip, we started planning another geocaching tour to the UK to take place in August of 2010. The main goals of this third trip should be circular geocaching series around Reading, Eastbourne and Crawley. Neither of us are keen on the idea of driving in the "wrong" side of the road, so we had to plan our transport carefully. Luckily we managed to find a good combination of train and bus connections as well as a little bit of taxi driving. This enabled us to get close enough to many great footpaths (and geocaching series). This kind of geocaching does not provide any "drive-by's" and thus we walked more than 300 km during our 11 days trip, but that is exactly the way we like it!
Yesterday we walked more than 40 km and we therefore figured that it would be nice with a shorter walk today. We decided to take the train to Cooden Beach and walk from there to Hastings. We then took the train back to Eastbourne. According to our GPS we had walked 28 km, when we entered the train in Hastings, which was a bit longer than we had expected. The weather was dry but very windy, but luckily we had the wind at our back all the way. This cache was found at 15:54. This happened to become a mini milestone for us: Our find no. 9500.
Thanks for the cache and greetings from Denmark!
