Pompey part three

I started off the day with a minor disaster - one of the bike batteries hadn't charged overnight! After a bit of thought, I decided to take a charger with me, and plug it into the inverter that runs off the car battery - since the car would be running, I needn't worry about it draining the car battery.

The M25 was snarled up again, so it took me more than two hours to get to my start point, and by that time, the bike battery was showing as fully charged.

So I kitted up. When I started off, the overnight frost had been really hard, so I put on my new leg warmers under my trousers, and five layers under my coat. I soon found that I'd overdressed, so I took off two of those layers.

I parked on the east side of the Pompey peninsula, and aimed to work my way north until I got to the A27. That worked well, and I did 32 caches (and several DNFs). I'm especially pleased that I did "Victor Vault", which I've DNFed twice before, but this time I had a better idea of what I was looking for, and I found it!

I finished up with a couple of multis, one of which I got and the other not. I broke or cracked three fingernails, but I'm not bothered about that, because they do grow back.
