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.

The Pain

AAAAAAHHHHHHHHH.  PoP!

That is what happened last night. I decided to go hunt for a few caches on my way home.  It is always fun to just spend time looking for them on the way home.  There was a group of 8-10 that I wanted to grab.  there is a lot of construction along the freeway.  So I was not surprised that I could not find one (behind temp fence for construction).

Most of the ones that I found were on the frontage road by Springville and the bay.  After going there I wonder if they will last long with the freeway expansion. A few of them had markers, and may make it through, but others may vanish in 3-4 months

It was the cache at the end that got me.   Toja7's Son's Back in Black.  I had two that I was going for in the area. I was walking on a slope and the shale I was on started to slide.  With my weight on my downhill foot, the shale stopped sliding and I rolled over  my ankle.  With a loud pop, my foot came to a stop. I gave up on the geocaching, though I did consider looking for it, until the pain stopped me.

I hobbled back to my car.. went home.. crawled in bed and put my foot up. 

Today I can get around, but it is really killing me.  I should have kept it up   However the option to make money made me work.  But I do not feel any better.
