Off to Ramsbottom for a six day holiday walking and caching in the Pennines with an eye to picking up some high terrain caches.
[b]Day 3: A little easier[/b]
Just the 16 high terrain caches today! However, less ground covered and an earlier finish, which was just as well as the rain rolled in mid afternoon as forecast by the Met Office - it would seem they can occasionally predict these things correctly!
When I spotted this challenge I was not sure I would qualify for it. I live in Surrey and the highest hillock in the South East barely reaches 1000 feet (304.8 metres) but I have cached elsewhere in the UK and abroad and a bit of research with GSAK revealed I did in fact qualify http://www.15ddv.me.uk/geo/chal/contours_challenge.html and with a bit to spare. AT GZ the, slightly different, container was soon spotted. Have a fav for this one as well.
PS. Fav points awarded for all of the 16 high terrain caches found!
PPS. Today, as yesterday, I was wearing my Aigles (posh wellies) which performed admirably and kept my feet dry all day, though it has to be said that even with three pairs of thick socks they are still not as comfortably as a good pair of walking boots.
