Out and about with my good mate WhiteFriar for a six day trip to Scotland with the intention of attending the Mega in Ayr. The plan involved visiting all the (Scottish) mainland counties and targeted Church Micros, SideTracked, Motorway Mayhem, YOSMs, Challenge caches, Puzzles and as many of the rarer cache types that we could manage, to accumulate nine different icons in total. A little rain affected but all objectives achieved.
[b]Day 1 - Home to Linlithgow[/b]
Possibly the best day, weatherwise - dry all day with some sunshine. A 6:00am start, round the M25 and then we headed up the M1 and A1(M) stopping off to plug all the counties that WhiteFriar did not have and to provide breaks on a journey of over 450 miles.
After a string a Motorway Mayhems, with time still on our side, we made a more substantial detour to pick up a few Church Micros, though, regrettably, only a very few of the many available in the area.
When the CO brought this to my attention I was sure I qualified http://www.15ddv.me.uk/geo/chal/jasmer_challenge.html#2007 but was less certain whether I would ever get to collect it. However, it fitted in well with our journey North and was found after a few minutes search.
