What a great month! Normally January is reserved for staying indoors, hiding from the elements and pretending the world doesn’t exist for another 4 months.
Not my January though! I didn’t make any resolutions at new year, didn’t intend to get so hooked on being outside, but, go out I did. Every weekend in fact, something I have never achieved.
So, some numbers:
Total finds: 74 – my third best month caching in a six-year caching career. This breaks down to:
- 66 traditional cache finds
- 4 multi-caches (three church micro caches)
- Three earth caches
- One mystery cache
- Six favourite points awarded – one of these was for a whole series
- At least one cache found during every day in January 2016
Not bad eh!
Loads of these caches (at least two series and a bunch of other finds were with my buddy DBR42 (aka Brian) who topped 100 finds during the month too.
February’s challenge is simply to find one cache a day. I am not worried about big numbers this month, the new conservatory is nearly finished and the whole house needs decorated.
Almost forgot: I bought a new torch to help out on those days where I need to find a cache in the dark. It’s an LED Lenser P7.2 that I picked up for 25 quid from Amazon. Only arrived today but the first impressions are seriously awesome! I might write a review once I have played with it a bit.
