The fourth (and nearest) cache was located about a quarter mile away so we drove to the nearest parking lot.

It was 11:30AM. We were expected for lunch at 12:30PM. Randy figured we could get in maybe two or three more caches.

This cache was a bonus cache. A bonus cache means that inside the cache, a traditional ammo box in this case, would be coordinates for another cache. The only way to get the coordinates to the second cache is to find the first.

Spiderwebs proved again to be a hazard, mostly to Randy. I was deeply grateful that we hadn’t encountered any snakes (mental note: bring a poking stick when geocaching in the wild). This cache was hidden underneath a pile of brush. While Randy logged our find, I learned how to enter new coordinates. For the bonus cache, I would be the leader.

About scribedscribbles

Like most people, I hate filling out profile pages. Who am I? Well, I’m a wife, teacher, daughter, and friend. I’m also an intellectual, an introvert, a night owl, and a bookworm. I work with struggling readers and overachievers, ages 11 to 15. I take care of students, a cat, two rabbits, friends, and my husband. I enjoy geocaching, reading, volksmarching, gardening, crocheting for charity, lecturing, science fiction, learning, and teaching. My favorite colors are blue, green, and purple. I am judgmental, dyslexic, sweet, overweight, graying, short, generous, loving, supportive, and chronically early to meetings. I’m afraid of snakes, putting my head underwater, heights, depths, and failure.
