#400

Well, I wish I could say I did some awesome cache for #400... but it just didn't work out. I wanted to do a 5 mile hike (round trip) but didn't want to do it alone. I hadn't gone on a hike in a while, there was a threat of rain and then there were also the paranoid thoughts that a mountain lion or bear was going eat me for breakfast.

I was a little bummed I couldn't get anyone to go with me... but I still wanted to hit #400 this weekend. So, I decided I'd take on Tumamoc Hill.

Tumamoc Hill

I got half way up the "hillside" and decided to turn back. It was just too hot and the humidity was killing me. I would normally keep going anyway... but with each step I was getting farther and farther away from my inhaler. I had forgotten it in the car!

I do want try Tumamoc Hill again at some point. I think my next attempt will be in the middle of winter though!

Now, on to the caches I did get....

#399 was near home, before my Tumamoc attempt. This cache was a duct taped baggie, a favorite of the cache owner. These types of hides used to stump me, but now that I've gotten the hang of it....I walked right up to it.

Geocache

#400 was cleverly hidden "members only" cache.

#401 was an Altoids tin in a park. Got a little dirty making these grab. It was wedged it its spot and needed some force put behind it to get to it.

I hope #500 is more adventurous!!!

  2. 401 looks more like an altoids tin than an ammo can... at least in these parts. ;)
