This past weekend I hit a geocaching milestone. I found my 1000th geocache find. Many of my 1000 were located in parking lots or on guardrails, or other places that took little to no skill to find. Not to say that I haven’t had my fair share of memorable caches in that 1000 though. There have been some amazingly creative hides, historic places, challenging hikes, and of course the tunnel crawls. Of course my 1000th cache could not be one of the basic urban hides. Instead I had to challenge myself with a crazy climb to the top of a rusty old crane.
Much like anything else in life not all caches are equal. Some involve long hikes or even swimming and diving. While others require nothing more than locating the correct lamp post in the Walmart parking lot. Today I did one of the cruelest caches I’ve ever done.
It’s been a while since I’ve done some “good” geocaching. No lamp posts, no guardrails, nothing with a rating of 1/1. (Overall difficulty / terrain difficulty) Nothing too urban that involves park and rides, bus stops, or parking lots. I haven’t been in the woods in a while or done a good multi-cache. Well today I broke that dry spell. I found an awesome series of caches that took me all around uptown Charlotte introducing me to different parks and monuments that honor our veterans.
It’s official. My brain will never shut off. Even in an extremely relaxed state while getting a massage my brain was churning out random thoughts. I just couldn’t stop it. The more I tried to make it stop, the more randomness it would invent. It’s kind of frustrating, but yet kind of fun and funny. Here are some of the thoughts I can remember from my hour long rub down.
