My Backpack's Watch
In 2010 I was coming to the end of my first year as a reviewer, and we were approaching the 15th year celebration. that year I got a watch. It is one of the nicest gifts that I have ever received as a volunteer. I don't know the exact reasoning, but it was after we had them that a discussion about making them trackable.
So we were sent the codes and I had it engraved. I clipped it on my Camelback (backpack) and headed out into the caching world.
I decided that I would not tell anyone about it being trackable. So it hung there. I hauled it to about 60+ events. It went with me on trips and hike, and to two mega events. I carried my coins to a number of events inside it. Many people saw it and commented, a few even looked at the back. Yet, no one realized that it was trackable.
Last summer it stopped working. The hands quit running. There is a little map light attached, it still works. The reason I carried it is fading. It was always running, and told the time. Oh well.
I was facebookered (or something like that) and told that it had a battery to replace. The light worked so I was sure that it was fine. I opened it up and the battery was fine, but under the battery, was another battery. Glory be the age of science that we live in.
Now I have a watch that runs, with a light, and both are amazing.
Now onto the the verb facebook, facebooking, hmmm, I am sure something like that is a real word.
