To Kent

First a circuit of 12, done on foot, with a bonus. It was only two miles, but when I got to the end, I realised that I could more easily have done it on the bike.

The second circuit was on the bike, and included a previous DNF which was memorable because I'd been threatened (while on public space) by a woman from a house very nearby. "Next time you come here, I'll have a shotgun," she said, or words like that. Fortunately, she didn't spot me today in my bike helmet disguise. And I found the cache. Which was on public space.

Then another circuit on the bike, in which I totally failed to find a cache which I think was disguised as a pine cone, despite spending half an hour looking.

And finally a fourth circuit on foot (should have been on the bike again). In that one, a farmer found me under a bridge, after I'd just replaced the cache. He asked me, rather aggressively, what I was doing, so I told him I was looking at the wildlife. "This is all private property, you know," he said, so I pointed out that although that was indeed true, there was also a public footpath which I was, in fact, standing on. After a bit more grumping at me, he drove off in his high dudgeon.

A good day out. No rain, no falls, 67 caches and only the one DNF.
