New Caches???

Well on tuesday I decided to hide some caches on a new bike trail the city is building. One section near me is complete and runs along Allen Creek behind a church and some houses as well as Allen Creek Elementary. I hid two caches along this stretch, but they are still unapproved due to this guideline

  • Caches near or under public structures deemed potential or possible targets for terrorist attacks. These include but are not limited to highway bridges, dams, government buildings, elementary and secondary schools, and airports.
Guess I have never tested this guideline before. Ok I agree that hiding a cache near these areas is a bad idea... especially on their property... but this is a public bike path. The path is going to be used... geocachers hiking on this path and looking around are only going to attract attention if they try.

I went ahead and archived one of these caches that was in direct site of the school, but I'm trying to save the other.

First August Cache

Well I haven't done much caching lately but did find one yesterday

No Jumping

Sally and I were up in Roseburg to see Etta James and this was a pretty close one. Only problem was that we forgot a pen... so I left pennies and hope thats enough as the area was starting to get crowded and I didn't want to risk going back one more time to sign it. As it was we had to talk to some odd guy on a bike telling us about a "water sucker" not sure what he'd been drinking.

Anyway in the last few weeks we had also been in Roseburg to see Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Alice Cooper. Great shows... I am really impressed with their free concerts Music on the Halfshell. Alice Cooper was at the fair and he still puts on the "all out" over the top rock and roll show of old... but no chickens are harmed anymore.

I also noticed that Lazyboy has quit blogging... said something about not having enough time. I've put in 28 hours of overtime since Friday myself.

I'm now 19 caches from 1000
