Today, Little QC and I took a walk round the BlackMill Series near Calne. This was a 4 mile walk, though we walked nearly an extra mile, with 14 caches placed around the circuit.
I had Little QC in the sling as I knew, from reading the logs, that the series was very muddy and contained a lot of stiles. What I hadn't bargained for were the electric fences.
We found caches 1-3 easily and then set off across a field. Electric fence #1 blocked our way. We detoured round the field and bypassed that fence, only to be greeted with a succession of electrical cabling. It was like a scene from the Krypton Factor with fences criss crossing each other.
There was no possible way I could leap the fences with Little QC on my back, so we back tracked...hence adding an extra mile to the road and walked round to cache #4.
This was a great series that I really enjoyed walking round.
According to the GPS, we walked 4.7miles in 1 hours 30 mins, with an extra 30 mins for stopping time and cache finding. This time also includes Little QC's walk between caches when he needed to stretch his legs.
