A new challenge "Church Micro Challenge Cache...When I go to Church" http://coord.info/GC4A9BW was published on 24th April 2013 and was received with very mixed feelings. I hate streaks but it was only for seven days. We have already done so many Church Micros but there are many more. After a few discussions with my caching partner, some delicate negotiations with my non-geocaching partner, careful examination of diaries and a quick look at what was out there we decided it was in fact feasible, albeit it was going to cover a lot of miles!
Day 4: A change of plans. We had intended to visit Royal Tunbridge Wells today (with a second visit on Monday) but the appearance of a new challenge cache took us East instead of South.
First though, a puzzle only published this morning. A very quick solve and on plotting it in Google Earth I realised that we would pretty much be driving by it on the way to the afore mentioned challenge cache. There were plenty of green ticks on GeoChecker and indeed by the time we got to it there were a plethora of signatures already on the log sheet. Still, it is another 0.1% of getting to 1000 'unknowns'.
The new challenge came out early yesterday and I saw immediately that I qualified http://www.15ddv.me.uk/geo/chal/long_man_challenges.html#LM05 but was convinced someone else would be nabbing it and was quite surprised to see it still unlogged this morning. A straightforward find and a blank log indicated that we had a FTF on our hands. Most pleasing. A very short drive brought us to its companion cache http://www.15ddv.me.uk/geo/chal/long_man_challenges.html#LM04 for another quick find.
On now to the reason we were out caching today, a brace of Church Micros, first the nearby Letterbox Hybrid and then a Multi as we head for home, neither presenting any difficulties. What is more, it has again stayed dry for us! Long may it continue (well, I would settle for another three days!).
