Today, I decided to go to Stanwick Lakes. I've been caching there before, and the tracks are excellent for biking, so I won't have the "mushy underbike" issue. It turned out to be a good decision for biking, but I accrued a record number of DNFs.
Before I left, I tackled the two puzzles there. I got the wordsearch quite quickly, but the logic puzzle took me four tries before I got an answer I liked. So I gave it to ladysolly, and she had it solved in a trice ... and I'm glad to say our answers agreed.
I decided not to park at the visitor center; it isn't the £3 that concerned me, but the fact that they close at 5pm, and I thought I might still be trundling around by then. So I parked neat the Kettering Town Football Club, got the bike out, and set off.
There were three multis to collect info for, and I didn't do that very well either; I travelled a lot further than I needed to, but as it was on the bike on excellent tracks, that wasn't too bad.
No, the big problem was the dozen DNFs. Twelve caches not found! I don't think I've ever done so badly, although I suspect that some of them, at least, weren't actually there.
Still, the weather stayed fine, and I had a nice day out.
