A Lttile Geocaching

We work two or three days a week. Sometimes only one day a week. Those days are in the middle of the week. Always off on Fridays and Mondays. So, last Friday we needed a little shopping trip, Teri did. I am kind of the complaining chaueffer. Sure some of you can relate. Anyway, I try create a little fun for myself on these trips, usually to Cape Girardeau.
Oh yea, geocaching breaks the trip up. Here I am grabbing a cache from a shoe pole out in the middle of nowhere. It would take me all morning to go through all of these shoes. So, I got a little help from the owner and went to the correct shoe quickly.

On up the road Teri grabbed one I could not find.

And another. It is great being a team. 4 eyes are always better than 2.

Well, I dropped Teri off at the stores and struck out on my own. I enjoy these kind of caches. They blend right in with what ever is in the immediate area. This one lives in a hole that looks like a normal bolt hole in a sign.

Look at this one. It is 7 ft. high and in a busy shopping district. It is also hanging over a busy street. These are night caches because way too many people can see you during the day "jumping and yanking". I did not sign the log, just shot a picture.
We also searched for a cache on an ice machine. Took too long and too many muggles so I took Teri to the stores and then went back by myself. Just too many muggles buying ice so I emailed the owner of the shoe pole for a clue. She sent the clue, I grabbed the cache and was on my way. Forgot to take a picture, just trust me it was a great hide and we have only seen a few like this before.
Teri calls, finished shopping for now and is hungry. Off to my favorite lunch time place in Cape, Sam's Club. Best pizza in town, and cheap. I park our new car away from traffic with a "cart" storage bin on one side. Won't have to worry about any door dings here.

Yea right. Look at this dent below Teri's door, the one facing the cart bin.

Yep, that bad boy knew there was a brand new car sitting there and "wham". What to do? I tried hard to let no bad words slip out while Teri took off back inside the store. She had no plans to leave without voicing a complaint. I just sat behind the wheel and tried to "cool off".
Well, out come two folks, with Teri, and started shooting pictures. She filed a formal complaint and advised them how this kind of thing could be prevented in the future. I guess we will see if they offer to fix it. Not real noticable to anyone but the owners of the car. Oh well, just a material possession that means little in the scheme of things.
So, life is good here. Getting ready for Thanksgiving and family next week.
Thanks for riding along.
