The Lair of a Fire-Breathing T-Rex

You better stop, hey, what’s that sound...?
Just a quick little entry after a relatively short geocaching outing this morning. Several caches down Jamestown/High Point way have been published in the past few months, and I figured it was high time I headed out to hunt at least a couple of them. The first — “Church of the Woods (GC96CCP) — took me to a neat little wooded area behind a church, where I found a picturesque outdoor chapel and, of course, the cache. I quite enjoyed the atmosphere of serene isolation on this rather gray, soon-to-be-drizzly morning.

From there, I trucked over to a nearby neighborhood and a cache called “The Lair of a Fire-Breathing T-Rex” (GC95FVQ). The cache description reads “A million years ago this was the home of a fire-breathing T-Rex. Legend says that if you were to enter without an offering of loot you would soon be sorry....” From that and the coordinates on the map, I had a feeling what I’d be getting into — and my hunch proved correct (see the image above). My initial inspection of ground zero suggested I might up pretty wet at this one. But as it turned out, I was peering into the lair of a fire-breathing Plesiosaur. Once I shifted my focus a little, I was able to make my way to the cache without making too much a mess of myself. From the adjacent passageway, I did hear some strange rumbling, thumping sounds, so once I had signed the cache log, I headed straightaway for the Rodan Mobile.

A couple of fun caches in appealing settings on my morning run. This afternoon, there will be more home renovation happening. Hopefully, more caching tomorrow. Adieu to you, and you, and you.
The T-Rex dwells in one of these....
