I know I talk about this often; probably too much.  I can’t help it.  It’s so much fun!

Gabe and I hadn’t spent any one-on-one time together in a little while – we were overdue.  We had no scheduled place to be tonight, so I invited him geocaching.  We hadn’t really explored the Howland area very much, so we went in that direction.  The mosquitoes and the ever-darkening sky kept us from really pushing ourselves, but we had six good finds.  There were a couple of tricky ones, but we were successful with every one we went for.

We grabbed some really dry chicken strips at the Corner Store, a couple of Jones’ green apple sodas (a fave), and snacked down at the Tannery Boat Launch.

The hard part of caching in Howland is the river that runs through the middle of town, and all the parallel roads that don’t connect in any way.  There were 3 or 4 caches within a linear mile of each other, but we had to keep backtracking and head down a separate road for each!

In the end, we tied for finds: 3 each.  That brings team BigCalfGuy up to 131 total finds.  If you don’t have the geocaching app, you’re really missing out.

Check out our finds!

This cache was an actual 5-gallon bucket. Alas, it was full of rain water, and all the swag was soaked.

We were hoping for an easy GRC (guard rail cache), but this was unexpectedly hidden.

A weird little cache in a weird little spot.

A painted loc-n-loc that was much harder to find than it should have been.

You should be at least 4 1/2 feet tall to be a successful cacher.

Our first – an easy P&G GRC. (park and grab guard rail cache).
