Out and about with my good mate WhiteFriar on pleasant, dry, if cold, day. "Geocaching Name Challenge" http://coord.info/GC3WYRE has been on our "to do" list for some time and today we thought we should make a start by spelling out WhiteFriar's name. This necessitated a certain amount of back and forth, to get the order right but was comfortably achieved by mid-afternoon. Fortunately the challenge has no prohibition on finding other caches, so we were able to mop up a few others as the opportunity presented itself.
I was already in the thousands when this was published, so I knew I was in for a long haul. However I finally qualified in September (and WhiteFriar in October) so it was just a matter of time before we got over to collect it. With just "AR" outstanding there was plenty of time for a detour to gather this one in. However, we hadn't counted on the quantity of mud at GZ! Wellies would have been preferable but winter walking boots and care sufficed. Not a quick find as the cache is very well tucked away but we got there before we sank too far into the quagmire!
