Coastal Caches

On Saturday I took off to the coast with my family. We stopped in Brookings for lunch after a short stop at the Lucky 7 Casino. I lost $20 but I got a cool water bottle. Anyway I also found a handful of caches. These were my finds for the day

So DirecTV is pretty sneaky sometimes. They offer you free stuff and then if you don't cancel it they start charging you. Last year I got NFL ticket free. I didn't really watch it a lot and some of the games I did want to watch were blacked out... and the HD package cost more.

Well this year I am getting charged for it so I called to cancel. Instead they offered me a free upgrade to the HD pack and $10 off a month. Personally I'm not really sure it is worth it still, but now that I can get them in HD maybe I'll watch it more.

As for college football I am unsure if my Beavs will be any good. I have tickets to see them on Halloween (what a great day to wear orange) against UCLA.

A few caches

Today was a caching event in Selma

Walk in the Country Folks

I was unsure if I would attend or not. Its a long way out there and I am lazy... but in the end I decided to take the opportunity to find a few caches. With the event I ended up with 10. These were the caches for the day.

Birthday caches

So yesterday was my birthday. I haven't found a cache on my birthday every year since I started caching but sometimes I make the effort. Since I hadn't found a cache in so long I decided to take the opportunity. These where the finds for the day

The first two were pretty easy. The third one was sneaky, but the coords were good. Its a neighborhood cache which I don't usually like hunting for... but it wasn't just dropped in a random neighborhood to leave neighbors wondering just what the hell you are doing... and that makes a big difference. I probably looked for 3 minutes so that wasn't too bad.

What happened to July?

Somehow I managed to go a whole month without finding a cache. The hot weather and working weekends contributed.

I went to Las Vegas on the 24th through the 27th. It was my first trip to Vegas without finding a cache. I still have a few virtuals to find (but none on the main part of the strip) and there are some micros along the strip (if I want to venture into dark parking garages). I did go downtown and was right on top of a virtual there, but didn't have my gps to figure out what I needed info from.

I'll find a cache today to end my no caching streak.
