Out and about without my good mate WhiteFriar who is visiting his daughter in Scotland to say hello to his first grandchild. Still, with a good weather forecast, dry throughout, occasional sunshine and only a little colder than of late, it behoved me to get out and nab some caches. The challenge was the starting point to which I added a nearby solved puzzle and the rest were (surprise, surprise, **not**) Church Micros. Just the 16 caches but no DNFs, a result that I am very happy with, particularly as 13 were Multis, several non-trivial.
I was aware of this challenge from publication and considered it a very difficult one but never the less got down to the task of accumulating the required number. I was helped greatly by holidays that took me away from my normal caching areas to where there was much more scope to grab suitable caches. I reached the required mark in December and may even continue adding to the list, though at a much slower rate or at least until I get a seven year anniversary (I have all the others up to 11 years.)
I was concerned by mellers' log but the parking proved entirely viable (see photo) and the cache was found quickly, both of which were a great relief as this is over an hour's drive from home and I really did not want to do it again.
