August 3 Day 215 Caches Found 0 Cumulative Total 243 (+1 bonus, +2cacher’s meet)

We attended the UKMega Event in Gaydon, Warwickshire !

Each year there are Mega Events all over the UK (though I’m not sure of the number of people needed to make it ‘Mega’, but this event qualified). This year a week long series of events had been held in the Midlands ranging from Kite Flying , a Ghost walk and a Circus Night.

The Mega was held at the Heritage Motor Museum at Gaydon and included a combination of sales exhibits,
seminars (ranging from an introduction to Geo-caching to First Aid), trackable swapping, some CITO (cache in trash out) and some hunting of caches (see separate post for this).

We believe close on 2000 people attended including children, who were well catered for with events including bouncy castles, magicians and zorbing! Dogs weren’t exempt and there was a wide range of breeds present. (Pity the dachshund which we think went on a 5 mile walk!)

What was very prevalent was that many people had trackable codes attached to them, their cars, their dogs, their teddy bears. Many of the cachers present ‘collect’ or ‘discover’ trackable numbers and were busy writing these numbers that were just walking past every single minute.

We had a great day and probably our photos don’t do it justice…
