Yesterday Daveydude and I went north to Roseburg to find a few caches. Little did the founding fathers know that 234 years later the British and Americans would get along and use Military satellites to find Tupperware hidden in the woods.
We started with Galesville Reservoir finding the newest caches there and deciding not to put my little inflatable raft in the water. Then on up the freeway. I found 32 caches, but had 11 DNFs. One cache we left a replacement so that was really a DNF as well. We had so many DNFs early that I almost said lets call it quits. Then we started finding caches and having fun again.
A while back I wrote the Southern Oregon Geocacher's Creed. 7 guidelines that I like to follow. Guideline #6 providing a useful hint might have made the day a little more enjoyable. Many caches had no hints, and unlike locals who might try 2 or 3 times I don't enjoy driving that far for nothing. Many of them may have been missing but with a useful hint we might have decided that a bit faster. I'll write more about this creed later.
These were the finds for the day
