Biking in Bletsoe

I haven't been out for a few days, and it's about time. So I went to Bletsoe for a bike trip. Nearly 60 caches, and only one DNF.

I got wet. That partly happened because of the foggy mist, partly by being dumped on by trees, and partly when I went through a ford and the water was *just* too deep for my boots..

And I fell over. Not too badly. It was late, I was very tired, and I was pulling the bike from where I'd left it back to the road. I'm not sure exactly how it happened, but I lost my balance as I was getting the bike into position, and ... fell over. I crumpled as I went down, so it wasn't too serious. No bruises.

I did a ring of 40 caches first; that took about 5 hours, and I was pretty tired, hungry and thirsty by the time I got back, but first I had to do the cache that was a few yards up the road from the car, and I managed to drop the magnetic micro into the post it has hiding in, and I couldn't see a way to get it out again. So I replaced it.

Then on to another series, which turned out to be three series all mixed up, and I chose a handy route to do another 18 caches.

A great day out!
