Out and about with my good mate WhiteFriar and trying to dodge all the wet weather. Anxious scrutiny of the Met Office forecasts eventually saw us commit to Thursday as being the best day. But would it actually be rain free? Well, not quite. Light rain at the first cache, drizzle at the second before it brightened up and was actually quite nice at times. In its favour I will say we were not complaining at the warmer than average temperature for the time of year that we experienced. However, the weather highlight of the day came in the early afternoon. First it grew very dark and then the hail thundered down, albeit for less than five minutes. Thankfully it arrive scant seconds after returning to the car after finding a cache. Mostly Church Micros but with a sprinkling of others to provide variety.
Well, I never really thought a FTF was more than an outside chance..... A biggish detour not only filled the 4801 to 4900 and 4901 to 500 slots but we also nabbed one from the 5001 to 5100 range. Thus qualified http://www.15ddv.me.uk/geo/chal/church_micro_challenge.html#CM25 we headed over for a joint third to find. Only my third challenge this year - need to do better!
