I qualified for this challenge with the following finds:
Church Micro 7004...Normandy
Church Micro 7010...Guildford - St Mary
Church Micro 7012...Merrow - St Pius X
Church Micro 7003...Guildford - St Joseph
I did all of these on the afternoon of 24-1-2015 with my son Bobcat. By coincidence the first three were next to schools that he attended. We nearly made it a full set actually, but got stuck in traffic in the centre of Guildford, so as it was getting dark turned back and picked up an easier one.
These add up to 28029. More details here.
I had a bit of spare time this afternoon so I decided to come to collect it. Nice views of the hills on the walk to here, and seeing snowdrops in the village I started to think that Spring had sprung.
The field is very boggy at the moment, but once you reach the woods its fine. I walked straight past the cache but only by 10 metres or so. When I came back I found it in the first place I looked.
On the walk back I jumped off the stile onto a plank covering a muddy patch. It moved under me and I nearly slipped over, but somehow managed to surf the plank through about a metre of mud. If only somebody had been there to tell me how cool I looked (though quite possibly it was the exact opposite).
