So Tuck-n-Seek, Sparky, and myself decided that the water had receded enough since last week to venture out on an after-work geocaching adventure. They left it up to me to pick the series and I found one Elmdor had put out but no one had found recently. He'd made a maintenance run in January and I figured we might as well give it a try. Didn't look at difficulty levels or the part where he says that it might be best to do this one in winter. LOL Needless to say, it was quite the adventure... it involved snakes in trees, falling into boot-sucking holes of water and mud, two trees to climb, thorns so plentiful it felt like Murkwood in Lord of the Rings but worse, and a whole lot of cursing. And after it was all over and we were drinking a well-deserved beer, we noticed several ticks that had hitched a ride on us. ???

 

The series starts with this one: GC46MEJ

 

This is  coming back from the first cache. We were still smiling at this point. Fools!

Teamwork was required:

This was a tamer part of the series...

All in all it was a great adventure but not for the faint of heart, fer sure. I think we must be insane. :idiot2:

By the way, I found this Samsung cell phone out there if anyone is missing one. Near GC471GG  I'm drying it out now but I seriously doubt it's salvageable.

I've done those caches before, so I know which ones you're talking about. It's like a miniature George Bush Park out there. And the coyotes were everywhere...

We didn't see coyotes but saw some tracks that looked like very large dogs. LOL

You might be right. Didn't see any dogs either. LOL Saw a snake in a tree limb, plenty of ticks and skeeters, and lots of rabbits. And a hobo camp that's long been abandoned. I have NO idea who would choose to squat out THERE. /shudder
