So today, he took an impression of my dentition, so that the replacement tooth can be made. That wasn't a biggie, except that I have a strong gag reflex, and I had to concentrate to avoid triggering it. The whole process was over in five minutes, so I had the rest of the day to go out caching.
First, I did the last remaining circuit of the Geolympics Marathon; I now have completed all five rings. Along the way, I met a nice couple of cachers, and we found a couple of caches together, but because I was on the bike, I soon left them behind.
Back at the car I had lunch, which consists of one low-calorie sandwich, and two Tesco-prepared fruit boxes, which are low calorie, and delicious.
Then on to the second ring of the day, the Stonor Circular. The route looked very steep, so I decided to do it on foot. Then an additional group of three nearby, also done on foot. Here's the big house along the way.
And then a short intermission - the abandoned church at Bix Bottom, which, apparently, has been the location for horror films. I've done a cache here before, but that was archived, and there's a new one here now. I solved most of the puzzle, decided I could go without one of the numbers, parked near the church, and wandered around. I went into the church; some people say it's spooky, especially at night, but I'm an atheist, so ghosts don't affect me. After wandering around for a bit, I spotted something that fitted the hint, and there was the cache.
Then on to the Dunsden Dawdle; a 20-cache circuit which I did on the bike. And I finished off with a couple of drive-bys in Caversham. 52 caches, one DNF, and a very good day out.
Also, a couple of recent purchases arrived today. The first was a Fujitsu Loox, the same PDA that I use for caching. I got it for 99p (plus £3 P&P) from Ebay, and although the previous owner said it wasn't working because it was lacking a battery, I put in a battery and it's working perfectly!
The other thing that arrived was ... yet more panniers. These cost £13.48 from Rutland Leisure Outlet, including P&P, and they look to be in the same class as the Altura panniers that would be about £45.
