Sweetieheart was on track to finding his 100th cache. When I suggested a nearby cache, I was told “My 100th cache is not going to be a skirt cache!” You know, for the last couple of years, he was just fine with skirt caches. Now that he approaches his 100th, he wanted more.

I thought about his interests.

How about a cache in a haunted location? Nope, not quite right.

How about a cache near the Air Museum in Addison? Hmmmm… maybe….

How about Tombstone, Texas’ oldest cache? It’s in Arlington, just a few miles away…. YES! That’s it!

Multi-Stage Cache

Tombstone is a multi-stage cache. In order to find the ultimate cache, we had to walk around the park and answer some questions. The answers resulted in the coordinates of the cache.

Sweetie’s #100

On a personal note, my husband proposed to me in this park after Midnight Mass at Christmas in 1997. I was unaware that there was a cemetery in the park yet I’ve visited the park often over the years. It’s amazing what you learn when you geocache!

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.
