Looking back through my logs I see that I completed the Bronze Endurance Challenge on 31-Mar-2013 and at that time I had found 1266 caches. I remember being quite proud of the fact that I'd done it with so few caches.
Well now its three years later, I've finished the Silver Challenge and have reached 2638 caches. I predict that I'll be back again in six years time to get the Gold when I've just achieved 5000 caches - hopefully it will still be here.
It was only 300 metres to this from the previous cache but the path suddenly got very muddy - probably caused by all the recent forestry work - I decided to head off into the woods to avoid it. When I arrived at the GZ the cache was an easy find though.
I headed back to the car the way I came. The little rabbit (garden ornament) that the forestry workers had left guarding their log pile made me smile. Then a minute or so later I came across an Early Purple Orchid perching precariously on the side of a ditch. I took photos of both of these so I'll add them to the log.
