I signed the physical log some 22 days ago, at which point in time I did not qualify. However, a recent two day trip took in three (new) counties in which we bagged a T5 apiece bringing me up to and one over the required total for this challenge. As WhiteFriar is still a few short we will no doubt continue collecting, as and when we can, though I rather doubt I'll make 30 for Gold any time soon.
