I'll just have 40 winks ... ZZZzzzzzz
Wow! It's been a while since I have been on here, sorry everyone!

The past month I have been decorating my daughters new bedroom ready for her to move into as she was sharing with her youngest brother who is a bit of an early riser, I'm glad to say Em has now moved in and is enjoying the peace and quiet!

Since my last blog I've not been out doing much capturing or deploying, apart from the fantastic April meet in Nottingham, a new series I have deployed in Clent, and a couple of eggs captured, well, 36 eggs to be eggs-act, not a lot really on the munzee front.

During my time 'away', so much has happened within the game itself, new virtuals, changes to editing and moving a munzee, both android and iPhone app updates, and now a Munzee Premium Membership for $30 USD/year, which I am tempted to get.

The new rules on moving have scuppered my Hunt The Facebook Munzee, but I'm hoping to sort something out to keep it going. Stay tuned!

How do you feel about the changes to the editing and moving a munzee rules and are you tempted by the Munzee Premium Membership

After finishing work Saturday lunchtime, I made my way over to Saltwells Nature Reserve, Quarry Bank, the sun was shining and it was a lovely warm day for deployment of a series of Munzee. The area is surrounded by factories, Merry Hill shopping centre and housing estates, you wouldn't think this nature reserve would exist in the middle.

In just over four hours, I managed to deploy 31 in the area and the following day took my children there to finish off some of the areas in between, giving a total of 50 Munzee, including a Mystery one, with more to come.
Notice the factories in the backgroind?
In one of the few small valley's at Waseley Hills Country Park.
The weather Saturday was not good when I was looking after my children, the rain kept coming, then early afternoon, I decided that it was time to risk the weather and get them out as they were getting to be like wild caged animals.

We arrived at Waseley Hills Country Park, Rubery and the sun started to break through the clouds. After a couple of hours walking and playing in the play area, it was getting too cold and we decided it was time to go.

Whilst wandering around, I saw several places to hide Munzee's and decided I needed to come back at sometime in the near future to deploy, and on the following evening I was free. Five hours later and I had deployed 28 Munzee around the Country Park, found a cache by mistake, and there are still places to hide a few more soon.
Team Munzee were at it again, tempting us players to get out and about after the Christmas and New Year festivities, with a Munzee Double Points Weekend, starting on Friday January 13, 01:00hrs CST to Sunday January 15, 00:00hrs CST, but this was extended to Monday January 16, 0:00hrs CST, due to server 'hiccups'.

My captures in total for the weekend were 188, these were from Sutton Park, Merrion's Wood, Dartmouth Park, the Silver & Trees series and Warrens Hall Nature Reserve, which included a pumpkin.

Points scored: 2084 (me)
Ranking At Start: 34
Ranking At End: 34 (Oh well, I did try!)
Total Captures Worldwide: 23,300+
Total Deployed: 7,300+
Finally finished the first part of my new series placed in and around Uffmoor Woods, Halesowen.

This first section has taken several late nights to deploy 28 Munzee, two of them are Mystery, and the others are just the usual. They range from very easy to very hard, well you didn't think the Mysteries would be easy to obtain, did you? Ha! Ha!

Take some good footwear as the area can get quite muddy and you may also get wet feet attempting one or two!




_After many weeks of preparation of the First UK Munzee Meet, the day started, in the car park to Warrens Hall Nature Reserve, with a race at 10:30hrs. There were approximately 18 pumpkins, left from the Halloween event, for players to try and grab as many as possible, as they were each worth 50 points!

=Ako- and myself, slowly wandered around, watching everyone searching and attempting to capture the Munzee and subtly pointing people in the right direction. It was such a relief, after many weeks of organisation, to just watch everyone enjoy capturing.

From outside to inside, everyone then met at the Royal Oak, Rowley Regis, after to participate in more fun and games.

My thanks go to -Ako- and Northking for their very hard work and help in getting this event off the ground, and thank you to all those who attended, it was fantastic to meet new and old friends.
