It's Just Over Yonder
Photo by Rob Isenhour
Until I became a geocachevangelist, I had no idea how many ancient, rusted-out vehicles lurked back in the deep woods, partying all by their lonesomes, hanging around in the darkest of hillside thickets where no self-respecting, unrusted vehicle would ever dare venture. But Mr. Isenhour sure knows how to find 'em. And when he finds 'em, you can be sure he'll leave a cache there. Needless to say, this means that Damned Rodan will soon be along to hunt it.
Helluva hot, humid day to be out in the woods yesterday, but there were new caches to be found, so guess who was out there tempting heat exhaustion. Yep. Got first-to-find on "It's Just Over Yonder," pictured above, as well as on three other new caches hidden by Mr. Kidd (Night-Hawk). Much to my surprise, Mr. Kidd also managed to place a cache close to a rusted-out, upside-down car out in the deep woods. Quiet mysteries, these old vehicles....
Came home, worked on Important Stuff, and then, long about 10 P.M., had a terrible carrot dangled in front of my nose by Mr. Bunce (XbunceX): Late-night caching trip? Discovered at this point that, despite sheer exhaustion, Mr. Rodan cannot say no to a late-night caching trip. It doesn't mean I need therapy. It doesn't mean anything, except ten more caches under my belt at 2:30 in the A.M.
Closed the day with #1,538. Even got a little sleep.
