Mud, Mud, Glorious Mud…

Another get together with the geocaching chums today. As you can see, as per usual it included a meal in a pub, and this was a well fabby one – the Kings Head at Wickham. Food is good, AND they sell real ale!

The main reason for the meet was for a crowd of us to do the cache Not As It Seems Part 2, which many of us had previously failed on. Luckily once you’ve got an agile chum with a head for heights – and a hint from the cache owner1 – it’s pretty achieveable.

Once we’d all signed the log, a few of us headed up the old railway line, first to Meon Valley Mud Bath – which some of us had found and some hadn’t – and then on to Herne2’s Little Thing (6) – which again, some of us had found then some hadn’t.

I’ve already mentioned how great the pub was, so I’ll just add that there was enough for everyone to eat (except Rob, who hadn’t ordered anything!), and even the dogs got a treat. Then it was off for the final activity of the day, a chocolate hunt where much competition was evident as the adults – and I use the term loosely – fought to find the four boxes of various kinds of chocolate before the kids.

Festivities over, and stopping only at the pub to pay our food bill, it was time to head for home. YAAAAAWWWWWWWN!

Ooh, and thanks to Sarah for driving, so I could get full enjoyment out of the real ale.

1 Thanks Steve!
