Caching Through the Snow...

How nice to have a good old friend, Dr. Beth Walton (a.k.a. UNCGBogTurtle) return to Greensboro from Illinois to visit for several days. Got with the doc and Ms. Debbie "Cupdaisy" Shoffner for an afternoon/evening of caching over in Burlington. About the time we left, snow started coming down, and the temperature started dropping. Made for a very cold but very enjoyable caching trip. Found a bunch, didn't find a couple. But perhaps the highlight was discovering an excellent little Mexican restaurant called La Cocina, where they serve Margaritas in boats the size of the Titanic and hit you with two varieties of spicy tomatillo salsa. Yay! The spinach enchilada and cheese-stuffed poblano pepper kinda rocked as well.

The snow didn't really stick, but playing in it was fun nonetheless.

How wonderful it is to return to the caching realm where cache owners are creative and place a little of themselves in each cache they establish; where caches are laced with adventures, intrigue, ingenuity, and imagination. Where we are fortunate to experience the sheer jubilation we feel when we find what is rightfully and purposefully ours to experience in these gifts along the trails we travel. And where the bonds of friendship grow stronger as we laugh and cry, and become bolder in the presence of those who are our kindred spirits. We egg, or encourage, each other on to reach higher, search lower and test our limits until we discover that we can cross to the other side of the river . . . either on our own strengths or with a hand up from a friend. It isn't all about the number of caches found, but more about those who have made it possible to live the experience, share the experience with friends and loved ones, and instilled a sense of adventure that keeps us coming back to live the experiences all over again at the next opportunity. And especially with the two I had the pleasure of being with tonight. Both of you ROCK!

You know, despite what people say, sometimes you're all right. ;)

Now, that Cupdaisy...well, I dunno....

It really was a great time, and so glad you're back for a bit. Almost like the good ol' days, only without the baby soda bottles. Maybe next time. ;)
