Out and about with my good mate WhiteFriar on a very pleasant Summer's day - yes it does look as though Summer is finally with us! Still a little chilly first thing when we set out from Dorking a little after 7:00 am but it soon warmed up. Our journey first took us Westward and then South Westward until we eventually ended up in the Portsmouth area. We collected Church Micros for the most part - it is amazing how they keep springing up - we can't keep up with them! Some picturesque churches along the way and some longer than usual Multis - not difficult but taking longer than planned for. It was also an opportunity to collect a few more Challenge caches a couple of terrain 5s and one Virtual. Regrettably we never reached the Wherigos and Earthcaches included (perhaps optimistically) in the plan. Weather permitting, we are already talking about coming back next week to continue where we left off. We finished early at around 7:00 pm so as to give us time to drop in on the Surrey event, this month held in Farnham, on the way home. Overall, despite the one DNF, a really great day.
As soon as this came out I was confident I would qualify and indeed I do, many times over. See my web page http://www.15ddv.me.uk/geo/chal/church_micro_challenge.html#CM17 for details of two sequences of eight consecutive Church Micros. However, to meet the logging requirements of the cache, I will also record three of them here:-
GC1ZDRV - Church Micro 894...Lurgashall - natterjacktoad - 28/Jun/2010
GC1YEMQ - Church Micro 895 ... Romford - john_ukd - 29/Jun/2010
GC1YGVQ - Church Micro 896...Eridge - Charliecats - 28/Nov/2009
GZ is a very pleasant spot and there were not too many muggles around. A rather cryptic hint but we puzzled it out, helped by having seen similar hides before. A swift retrieve, sign the log, a swift return and no-one the wiser (no muggles, anyway).
