Meanwhile, back in England…
While we were driving to Brighton, my uncle told me about the Ridgeway Walk. The history behind that totally intrigued me, and I had planned a day of hiking while staying with the family, so I set out for a day long hike along part of the walk a couple of days later. I thought ‘wouldn’t it be cool to try out geo-caching while I’m at it’? This ladder was laying on the ground at my first ‘stop’. I have no idea if the cache was in there or not; I never found it. After realizing how crappy I was at this new activity, how far I had planned to hike, and how much time I’d wasted in this one place, I decided that a 13km hike was not the time to practice a new game.
I haven’t actually tried geocaching again since. I really should get on that.
