Life as a Geocacher

Caching and Reviewing

This is made up of stories from my caching and my reviewing.  It is a collection of those along with comments and thoughts.  Photos, and maps of some adventures and lists of some of the oldest caches.

Last Saturday - Nearly naked by the river.

I just wanted to share more of my last weekend.  My wife and kids were out of town.  Faced with the thoughts of being alone and doing nothing I tricked Jac0b into going caching with me.  I would have gone without him, but I would have gone to Vernal area. He wanted to go south.

We headed through Nephi to grab a few, and I placed one.  I am still trying to decide if I list it.  It is on a fence. One side we went through 2-3 gates to get there, and the other was locked and had no trespassing. So I am torn.  Do I list or not.  We spent a long time trying to get back out and finally did make an escape, but I am still determining weather to list it.

There were a few I was hoping to get, and early on all the Ammo Can hides were all missing. So I was getting worried.  We finally started to snag a few.  I placed a few through the day.  The two that were really fun were Guarding the Cache and later in the day Tetanus Shot.  Sometimes an idea strikes me.  Usually they are not very good, but this time I liked the ideas of those two. We went down through Sanpete county and grabbed a number.  More than I expected.  We did pretty well.

I also grabbed 4-6 Virtuals that I had missed from some of the smaller towns that I had not been through.  So that was a good run.  Hopefully I can grab a few more that I am missing down there to finish them soon.

My favorite of the day was a simple guardrail cache Jenny Green Tooth. But the reason that I enjoyed it was because of the experience.  We got to the location, and I had been reading the cache page.  It made it appear that it was under the bridge.  Well we got there and looked at the waters edge.  It was a canal/river that was pretty full, and brown and nasty.  Well Jacob decided that he was going after it. 

So there he was stripping down, to go in the water when I see it up above on the guard rail, So I go up and grab it. Just as an old farmer rolls up and wonders what jacob is doing nearly naked down by the river bend and me scrambling away from him. 

He drove off shaking his head, and I was wondering if I should have waited a few minutes before I said that I found it.  Jacob swimming in brown cold runoff water would have been a good picture.
