It is hard to remember what day it is!
I went out to Lakeside in the almost noon-day sun, mad dog that I am. I found some geocaches around Cactus Park. Some of them were pretty tough to get to, and away from. Walking along one fence line I discovered someone's abandoned kit car project. I guess.
After that I went over to El Monte Park to check out the parking situation for the Flume hiking trail. Looks ok. No cell coverage, though, so I couldn't look for any caches.
Lastly I went to Lindo Lake to find some caches. I saw some ducks. This place has changed a lot since I was a kid, and I've been complaining about it ever since. Here's a link to the Lakeside Historical Society Lindo Lake history. Look for the picture of the airship over Lindo Lake!
Some stats: I'm right at 2,700 caches found in my geocaching career. I need two more caches to make five hundred finds for this year. One of my goals for 2014 is to have 730 finds, which would average to two a day. Another goal is to reach the 3,000 caches found level.
I forgot to mention I printed out two aerial maps and a cache list for today's expedition, and of course left it at home. So I'm glad I had the iPhone app to look up hints and descriptions! At least I had loaded all the caches into my GPSr (GPS Receiver) this time. Why bother, you say? The GPSr batteries last a LOT longer than the phone (a couple weeks!), no data charges to worry about, and it is more accurate. Usually. Often. Sometimes!
So I use both.
It's not JUST about what I had for breakfast...
