Festivus 2

Sunday morning Louie and I got up early and headed out to grab a few caches before football started at noon.   We wanted to get the 2 remaining caches that had been released for the Festivus party because I hadn't gotten them on Friday night.  While we were out we grabbed 6 additional caches that were in the area.  So we got 8 caches in about an hour and a half and made it back home in time to thrown a pot roast in the oven to eat during the first football game.  Not bad, huh?

My favorite cache of the morning was called "Festivus 2 I Got a Problem With You People.  GC38HNB  This cache was placed in a nice little wooded area that runs right through the middle of a neighborhood.  We took a short hike down a trail that was lightly dusted with snow.......

There were actually 2 caches placed along this trail, but the one I really liked was placed way at the back end of the woods.  We had to cross a partially frozen stream and scramble up an embankment.....

Once on the other side of the stream it didn't take us too long to find the cache.  The cache itself was a nice size lock and lock container.  I dropped off a TB (travel bug) that I had picked up at the Festivus party...

On our way back to the cachemobile, we stopped to check out 2 man made shelters that we saw off the trails.....

Fortunately, nobody was home - I'm sure glad I'm not living back there!


  1. I keep telling myself it isn't too late too get off my butt and be active. You are such an inspiration to me.

  2. You are really racking up those caches lady! Good job! I love those shelters...they would have been fun to play in as a kid ;)

  3. Gayle: you got it all wrong - you're the one who is always the inspiration!

    Della: I would have wanted to play in those as a kid too!

  7. Laima: A fellow cacher - Welcome!! There are lots of good caches in your area. I'd definitely start up again. Let me know if you do!

  8. I love seeing the snowy images you post each time you go caching this winter, makes it feel more like Christmas! Much as I enjoy the sun and warmish weather, it feels really odd at this time of the year! :p

  9. I am constantly amazed at how many caches you find! And wondering who resides in those shelters....
