After tightening my hiking boots (loose hiking boots lead to blisters), I opened the Discovery Education Geocaching Box. Inside were brochures, six trackable geocaching coins, and recycling bags.
Randy stepped out of his pick-up, GPS unit and Blackberry at the ready. The nearest cache was only 40 feet away. This microcache consisted of a bison tube (about the size of the knuckle of a pinkie) which had last been found a month ago. It had been DNFed (Did Not Find) ten times in the last year.
We hunted and hunted, braving many stands of poison ivy but were unable to find it. My first cache was going to be my first DNF. It was 10:05 and time to head on to the second cache.
