Southern Man

Wednesday Adventures

The Personal Trainer put Southern Man through the wringer this morning. It's our last week together, so there was testing. Southern Man managed to post about 20% improvement over the initial numbers, but it just about killed him. The limitations of age are difficult to accept.

Then there was the usual afternoon geocaching on the commute between day and evening jobs. One of the hides was at the far end of an old railroad bridge...

This pic does not give a sense of how high and windy and scary the trek to the cache actually was.

...which was a lot of fun. Southern Man is working a pretty good streak for geocaching, having not missed a single day since last November. The plan is to continue for the rest of the year until all calendar dates are filled in, and see where it goes from there. Given that Southern Man is CDO there is a fine line between geocaching fun and geocaching work and he wants to keep things on the fun side.

And now he is home at dark-ish for home-made stew and salad and Teen Daughter's chocolate-chip cookies. For a work day, a good day.

have you found a cache in every county of your state yet? are city or rural sites better/harder to find?

Southern Man is indeed OCD enough to keep track of these things. His goals are to have every county in the state within a few years, and every state in the USA before he's too old to cache anymore. Urban caches tend to be small and clever, with the best ones hidden in plain sight. Rural caches are harder to get to but easier to find, and are usually large enough to contain lots of swag for trade
