Piratemania 2014 with the Essex Crew


And so it was time again for the fabulous yearly Piratemania Mega event. This year it was further north in the beautiful town of Cartmel, famous for their wonderful sticky toffee pudding (And yes, of course we had some whilst we were there!) 😀

We headed up on the Friday night with our Team Essex crew of Doggywalker, Yorkie63, MummaD, Natlie92, Riskt4ker and Hollyncharlie. Before long we had pitched up the Essex camp and were ready to sail the seven seas and plunder dubloons!

Just in case you couldn't guess who the tent belongs to!

UK MEGA Event 2013 (West Midlands)


After unpegging the tents we headed off on Monday 29th July slightly east from PirateMania to prepare for the UK MEGA. We were staying for the whole week with most of the Team Essex crew who also attended PirateMania so that we could attend all of the side events as well as the main event.

Monday

As we couldn’t pitch up on the campsite until 4pm we all headed off to the first side event, Let’s Go Fly a Kite at Burton Dassett Hills Country Park. The country park is a very popular destination for kite flyers and there were many geocachers up on the hills having a go. I had bought a £2 rubbish kite to fly for the occasion and after SirCache1 kindly got it up in the air for me (On the first go as well!) I was able to fit in well with the rest of the attendees!

Lots of cachers and kite flyers
