Some days I love our life, even though hectic it's awesome. We didn't get as many caches as we wanted as one of the mini turtles turned 12 and we had a sleep over for him and his buddies on Saturday - and on Friday a cousin was in town from Pennsylvania for the night so we did dinner - so our Caching time was seriously cut into.. lol But well Worth it.
We managed to grab 4 on Friday and experienced a sad sad moment - a freshly muggled cache.. very sad for us - the papers were all around from the log book - we grabbed what we could and sent a message to the owners.
It was however an amazing weekend!
Kris and Cousin Lou!
Ok - so I will never like my pictures - still think I look like a chipmunk in them.. :P
We did find 3 very healthy caches on friday, tried to find one that apparently had been archived since my Vancouver querry a few weeks ago, but was worth the stop anyway!
We happened to have 4 of our caches posted this weekend - we're really enjoying placing them - it's a bit all obsessing now, People are going to think it's because of the blitz - but it's not - we just finally are starting to pull our ideas together and the roads are opening.
Finally we've been able to get some out of the box thinking going on for them - Jordy's creative juices have started flowing and we're using some ideas that we havent' seen before! For Kris it's just the fun of building up an idea - theme - from the cache page to the cammo.. he he she's thinking a Nursery Rhyme theme could be next!!
We did manage to claim 9 this weekend in spite of the limited time, but it's not about the numbers it's about what you see while you're out there.. take this picture for instance:
The Sweet Bliss of a Honey Suckle Moment
How often do we get to capture these moments in time, where for that split second you can stand still and just take in the power of something so small?
Then of course you think the coordinates will get you to the cache if it's a traditional one - boy were we wrong.. lol we went up almost the full km to the cache (in real hiking time) to find out it was a traditional cache we needed the sheet for as it was 180 'paces' from the coordinates - so back down to the Yeep we go.. :P and on the way back..
Woody Warns Us Away!
Think the whole trip up and back and up again was well worth it - besides the excercise we got. We explored the area rescued two TB's and left two behind.. and took them on a few photo op adventures. We had wanted to get 10 caches done today to do some catch up for missing the gorgeous sun yesterday but fate didn't allow that. However we are proud to boast we have now done our second multi-cache (and this time Kris figured it out in only 3 steps - not the 5 normally required!) and didn't land us 12 km away!
All in all a great Weekend.
