20 to go

Well Sally and I went after a few caches yesterday and ended up with 3

Ashland Crest
Mountain Top
Siskiyou Peak

All great caches and a great day to be up there looking. Couldn't have asked for better weather. I even had to put on my sweater for a bit which is a big change from the 100 degree weather we were having.

We went up the the area because when chubby forest monkey visited the area recently she left me a gift near Siskiyou Peak. Went up to find a nice painted rock with the blazers logo on it. I'll have to take a picture of it.

With those caches I have just 20 to go before my 1000th. Seems like I've been talking about it for a long time... so I'd like to get them found and move on.

Actually found a cache today

Oh, 1 Odie

Thought I might be FTF but DrDan had beat me to it. That puts me 23 away from 1000 finds.

Sleeping Baby

Well I got to see Kalynn today and she was sleeping the whole time... which was nice. She's a cutie...

Little does she know that in the future she may well be following her uncle on one of his crazy exploits.

Kalynn Marie

Born today around 5pm. So I guess I am an uncle now... I feel old.

She had fluid in her lungs or something so you can't see her but for a few minutes. So I didn't go today... maybe tomorrow.

Wishful Thinking

Well... still waiting to hear confirmation that I'm an uncle. I guess it can take up to 48 hours... and I think it is hour 34 now. Even after she's born its going to take a couple years before she's able to help me find those elusive playground caches that us single guys look really weird searching for.

Can it get much hotter?

Well its been a long time since an update, but its been a long time since I've been caching. Despite being so close to 1000 the heat has kept me from getting out and finding any. Yesterday the high at my house was 110.3... and I don't see an end to the triple digets coming anytime soon. I might decide to get going early and find some before it gets hot this weekend... but I kind of doubt it since I'll be house sitting for my uncle.

Tomorrow, if all goes well, I'll become an uncle myself as they plan to induce labor for my sister in law. I guess even then it can take some time, but they plan to start at like 8am or something. Might have a picture for the blog tomorrow.

24 to go... and new sig items

I didn't plan to find any caches today but I was really close to a newer cache in Medford. I didn't have my GPS with me, but I had a good idea of the location and container. Found it easy enough so now I'm just 24 from the 1k mark. Today's Find

Poplar Place

Also today my newest signature item arrived. I had some 1" buttons made by Bumble Buttons. They turned out great, I couldn't have asked for more. As a bonus they sent a handful of regular sized buttons. I'd recomend them to anyone looking for signature items. They did cost a bit more than wooden nickels, but I wanted something a little different.

Up the hill

Well today I found 3 caches putting me within 25 of 1000.

Umpqua Joe
Church Picnic
A Second Place To Hibernate

Umpqua Joe is a classic boxerlovers cache... a half a mile from the road at the end of a 2 mile trail, uphill. If I were in better shape it might not have been so bad. I guess its good for me.

1k is getting closer all the time
