Found it DK_Titan found ch050 - Chiltern Hundred, Westdean Lane

Friday, May 22, 2009Southern England, United Kingdom

Back in November 2008, this series was mentioned on the Danish geocaching web forum. We immediately started planning a trip to the UK with the Chiltern Hundred as the main goal. In January 2009 we booked a cheap flight and accommodation, and after that it has just been a matter of waiting and waiting... It turned out that we had picked the perfect day for the challenge. The weather today was just brilliant for a LOOONG walk. We started out in Central London at half past six and arrived in Chesham a good hour later. After that the recipe of the day was walking, searching and logging (over and over again) We searched for all 109 traditional caches and managed to find 105 of them today, which took us 14½ hours. According to our GPSr we walked 35,4 km (22 mi). Unfortunately we didn't have the possibility of going online on location, so we had to return to London in order to get the coordinates for the Bonus cache. Luckily we had noted the correct information from all 105 caches, so we would only require one more trip to Chesham (on the following day).

The cache no. 50 of the series was found at 19:30. With 105 Chiltern Hundred finds today it didn't come as a surprise, that we would have an anniversary among them. This one was our cache no. 3200.

Many thanks for a truly great experience! We have tried long series previously, but none of them have been as well prepared (and maintained) as this one!


infoThis is the original cache type consisting, at a bare minimum, a container and a log book. Normally you'll find a tupperware container, ammo box, or bucket filled with goodies, or smaller container ("micro cache") too small to contain items except for a log book. The coordinates listed on the traditional cache page is the exact location for the cache.
