Geocaching in the Afternoon

Geocaching profile
I spent the afternoon geocaching. It was the first time I had been out caching (not counting event caches) in quite a while. It was really good to get outdoors and caching around again -- it was lots of fun. To start, I attempted to find Oh Tannenbaum, but was unsuccessful. I found all the clues and got the final coordinates, but just couldn't find the cache itself. I'm terrible at finding micros, so I bet that was part of it. I'll go back again during lunch sometime in the next week or so and look for it some more. After searching there, I headed out for some semi-serious hiking and found The Outback. I got on the trail at the wrong end, so I ended up hiking more than I would have otherwise -- all told, I probably trekked about six miles. It was a good hike along a bike trail. Quite enjoyable. I'm glad I found the cache, though. Hiking that far without finding the cache would have been disappointing. I also dropped off the White Jeep Travel Bug that I picked up at an event cache last week. I like to think that the Jeep is having an identity crisis -- it thinks it's a Subaru. (Get it? The cache was called "The Outback." Subaru Outback. OK, bad joke.) On the way back to the trail head, I stopped in on Hawk 4 (one of the first caches I ever found) to pick up a clue for the Lake Brandt Marathon. (I picked up a clue in The Outback, too.) All in all, it was a great way to spend the afternoon -- I'm glad to have been outside doing some physical exertion.
