Some geocaches

I'll start with a job hunt update. No job yet. You'd think I'd be an expert on interviewing by now, but obviously I am not. I have another interview this coming Tuesday in Medford. I took a trip to Portland for an interview earlier in the month and a phone interview with the same place. There could be a real possibility of me moving to Portland, but I won't get too far ahead of myself... have to be offered the job first.

As for geocaching I found a handful this month including a couple of FTFs

As the smoke cleared a bit I took the opportunity to go for a walk around the neighborhood and found

Concrete Memorial south

Both caches are in small parks here in Grants Pass, and both parks that I have once had geocaches of my own. These two should last for a little while.

Last weekend I went to Waldo Lake and found a few around there


The last two I was FTF on. Pretty fun to be first so many miles from home. I could have gotten more but they were on the path around the lake and unless I wanted to hike a couple of days I wasn't going to find them all. Its a popular mountain bike destination and on bike it could be done in a day.

This coming Thursday I am going to Reno for the National Token Collectors Association annual token show.  I've belonged to the club for a number of years and this is the closest the show has been to me so I'll take advantage. I plan to use the trip to complete the State of Jefferson Counties Challenge. I've been working on it for a few years. After I complete it it should only take me a few more years to go get the final.

Job search & geocaches

Earlier this week I had interviews in Corvallis and Newport for different jobs. Tomorrow I am going to make an all day trip to Portland for another interview.

Corvallis is a posability

Newport I've never had a worse interview.

It was nice to get out of the smoke though, and I found two caches while I waited in Corvallis

Not Hidden
Old Mill

Both were pretty easy and it wasn't too hot there to go grab them. I thought about looking for a few on the coast but I came right home after my interview. I did stop at the Ripley's Believe it or Not museum. I've wanted to see that since I was in grade school. Honestly I probably would have enjoyed it more at that age too.
