This is the story of what happened when we checked on Jody's geocache this spring...
Early on in the spring we decided to check on the memorial geocache we put up for Jody. We wanted to see how it fared through the insane amounts of snow we got this winter... ...and the inevitable flood when spring finally hit.
So between the main path and the cache spot was a lot of newly minted swampland thanks to the massive snow thaw. I couldn't take any pictures because I was busy trying not to sink into quickswamp, but later I did get a hold of this artist's rendition of what things looked like :p.
We finally made it to the cache spot and everything was nice and dry. The last geocacher to find it even had moved the cache to a higher spot for the winter so that it was less likely to get swamped.
Checking the inside of the cache.
The two memorial cards we put in as part of the cache were still there and in good condition.
Jennifer reading the cards.
Andy was misbehaving so I told him to chill out for a second. It takes all his concentration to sit still like this when he's outside lol.
He loves Jennifer and attentively watches everything she does.
Okay time to refill the cache.
Loading up the cache with miscellaneous prizes and goodies.
The whole area was dry so we decided to move the cache back to its old spot.
Me and the cache before I put it back :p.
It's been a long time since anybody walked through here.
The perfect spot.
Gotta cover it up with brush and branches so that random passerby don't stumble upon it.
I got a little impatient lol.
When you're out for a walk in the woods you just never know what you're passing by.
Okay back through crazy boot soaking swampland (don't worry it all dried up a couple weeks after this).
After all the swampland it was nice to get out on the main trail again :).
I liked the look of this old truck oil sign.
Andy decided he was bored with carrying regular sized branches around.
Though this one was so long he pretty much had to drag it.
Then he found one that he liked even better.
It was funny to watch him carry that monster stick around.
He had fun though.
He had to take breaks every once in a while lol.
But then was right back at it. We kept on walking and enjoyed the nice weather and scenery, happy that Jody's cache was safe and sound. ~The End :)
