I love park and grabs – I really do. I make no secret of that, and this past Sunday was a park and grab cachapalooza. JaJaSt had a goal for Sunday, he was going to break 700 – who am I to stand in the way of a goal? So we crafted a plan and then pretty much ignored it – cause that’s how we cache!
We started off by finding a cache that was placed very close to my house. I was online when it was published, and I just sat there and stared at the computer screen thinking “Oh, I should go get this,” but I didn’t and Mrs. BritPitt and her youngest were FTF.
From there, JaJaSt and I headed into the wilds of Nashua and began our day. We were looking for one that had been archived (why that showed up in my list I’ll never know, when I filter in gsak, I take them all out) anyhow, we’re searching and searching and I put my GPS down on a rock to just take a look around when what did I spot? MY FIRST EVER BENCHMARK! woot woot!
A funny thing happened on our caching adventure. I found 3 – count em 3 caches that were apparently archived, but the cache owners hadn’t come out to remove the caches yet. I figured since I found ‘em, I could log ‘em. I also found a tick – ewwww. We were in the car getting ready to head out after logging a find when I felt the creepy crawly on the back of my neck. I reached up and around and grabbed and it was a tick…he’s now a dead tick. Unfortunately when I did the girly scream and jump, my GPS, which HAD been sitting on my lap, landed out on the pavement. That almost put an end to our caching day, but luckily for me, Mogumbo the GPS is made of sterner stuff and turned right back on!
We finished up our day shortly thereafter and headed for home. JaJaSt reached another milestone and I added a few more caches to my slowly increasing list of finds – and we found our first benchmark. All in all, it was a very good day! Except for the tick!
