Round Hemel

With the back tire on the bike being dodgy, I pressed the spare bike into service. Unfortunately, the saddle is too low down, and the seat post is too short to raise it enough. I've ordered a new seat post, but meanwhile, I just had to adopt a low posture.

By about 3pm, my right thigh was hurting so badly I could barely move the leg. I don't think this is the tendonitis returning, the pain is in a different place. We'll see what a good night's rest does.

So I tidied up a bunch of nearby caches, and then went on to Hemel, where I had too many DNFs to want to admit. About 30 caches in total, and then on to the event at Wendover.

There, I saw Jeff's new Garmin Montana, an impressive looking item. Ladysolly's been wanting a new GPS, so I thought, maybe that's a candidate - you can put Memory Map files on, Jeff said.

Then when I got home, I did a bit of Googling. You can put Memory Map files on an iPhone, and also the GPX data (that's the format that cache pages are in). So my current thinking is to get the Memory Map app (£4.99), and use the maps that I already have.

The replacement tire arrived today, so I'll start working on that tomorrow; apart from that, I plan to rest the dodgy thigh.

If it isn't one thing, it's another.
