It was a dark and stormy night….

No, it wasn’t. It was a bright, sunny, and warm afternoon and I’d been stuck in my classroom all day, preparing for the first day of school. I needed out!

Just before leaving the building, I checked my e-mail. A geocache I’d been watching was open and located only seven miles from school.

Brigadoon is the disappearing cache of the Metroplex. The owner has a random date generator. On the dates generated, he places the cache at dawn. At sunset, he takes the cache away.

As a sheer coincidence, I was currently at geocache #199. I’d been waiting for a special cache to catch my interest. Brigadoon was it!

I packed up my bags and left the building. A half hour later (traffic was really bad with construction), I’d found #200.

On to Milestone #300!


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.
