Three More Geocaches


I went caching again this evening.  The first one I found was in a prescription pill bottle under the metal guard of a lightpost again.  It was easy to now that I know to check there.  Team s.w.e.e.t.a.u.g.u.s.t left a hand- decorated calling card.  Cute!  I took their's and left one of my own.  


     

I found the next cach in a wooded area hanging from a tree.  Sweet August left another cute card of a different design, but I already have one so I didn't take it.  I must have been near a bird's nest because what I thought was a cardinal was chirping loudly at me.  Upon looking at the photo, I'm wondering if it's even a cardinal.  I have to find my field guide.


Finally, I wandered back to the waterway to find another one of the nano caches at another taxi stop.  I found the cache, but it was too far up in it's hiding spot for me to reach with my fingers.  I marked it as found, but will go back with a magnet or a wire to see if I can get it out and initial the log.  Another feathered friend took a stroll with me along the water's edge.  

  

I uploaded my first video to YouTube!  Yay me!  All photos and VIDEOS on this post are mine.

Well done. This seems like something I might like myself. Is that a bird in the tree or is it another cache ?.

Hi Jen, It looks like so much fun...I'm still waiting for my GPS to turn up in the mail (pacing, pacing)

Buckeroomama said it perfectly! I am so enjoying the field reporting--oh--and please see comment on previous post about "Caching in" on safety, I put it in the wrong place....just a thought,

Much Love and Happy Hunting!!!!

Geocaching is no more dangerous than jogging...less because I take a different route each time. Women are most often attacked by people they know or someone who has been watching them to learn their routine. It's not likely there will be someone lurking behind a tree, just hoping someone will happen by. They lurk in parking lots all the time, though.

It's a bird, Vince. I think a female cardinal.

Love the pics and videos!

There was an episode of CSI that had to do with Geo-caching. Their "Vic" (I always wanted to say that) was playing this game.

You are really into this! Female cardinal is much more drab than bright male..

Happy Friday!

"Geocaching" ? Just what in the Sam Hell's going on over here ?!?!?

Kelly said...

You're getting really good at geocaching! Yep...looks like a female cardinal. They seem to be more vocal than the males, imo.

Jen said...

I might hide one myself one day. It would be fun to see who finds it.

There are no pharmaceuticals in that pill bottle. Calm down.

jack69 said...

I wonder, do folk ever find this cached stuff by accident and throw it, just to be mean?
It must happen.

Sounds exciting from here.

Jen said...

People can be assholes. They disappear sometimes. If you hide a cache, you're supposed to watch the log to see if a lot of people are reporting they didn't find it.

Most are not easy to find accidentally, so it's not a big problem.

Tempo said...

Youve really hit a nerve with Geocaching Jen. Seems there are a LOT of us wanting to try it out....

Heather said...

It sounds like a fun thing to do. Definately a female cardnial.
