Slow to Post

Sorry for keeping you waiting for updates. I have been busy spending every last minute with my son. He left for the Army on Friday and for about the last 2 weeks we’ve been having fun together. Hiking, caching,watching movies and playing card games.


One of the caches was a six mile hike that included 4 parts. There were 2 others along the way. We started out early in cloudy weather.


We had our Geodog Ellen with us and as her and my son rounded a corner they disturbed some Big Horn Sheep. 3 of them took off running. I got a shot of them in the distance.


We got the first part and went on about another mile or 2 then the weather turned really crappy. Fog came in and freezing temps. We decided to head back down the mountain.


We laughed and talked. A time we’ll both remember. I won’t get to hug him again for about 6 months. We’ll all miss him but this is what he wants to be doing. He is going to be a medic.


Caching in Vegas

My daughter and I went to Las Vegas for a week for her 21st birthday. We had a wonderful time. Got some awesome pictures and video footage. The fireworks were incredible. We were on the strip for them right across from the Flamingo. Got the volcano on video also.

We met some very nice people while there that weren’t cachers so of course we had to get them interested. We did the convention center one as their first. They are older folks and it is easy to get to. We brought back a travel bug and 2 geocoins to send on their way in Oregon. We will hopefully get a chance to go back this year and do a lot more caching. Thanks for the welcome in Vegas.
