Geocaching

kengr and I spent the day hunting for geocaches, which are things hidden in certain locations, the coordinates of which are found on the geocaching website. Like a treasure hunt or an easter egg hunt using a GPS locator to track them down. The information we had was old, and the only active geocache left of the ones we were close to was too hard to find. But we found some benchmarks (metal thingies with information on them, planted in concrete by the city surveyors), and it was fun and good exercise. I also found out about a very long trail nearby my apartment that I hadn't known about before, which will be fun to explore some more. The sunburn I got from it was so worth it!

Oh, I also got a working printer from kengr! Thank you! *HUGS* Oh, and found out that windows XP does NOT automatically purge temporary files from the internet. So there was shit still there from 2004!!! No wonder the damn thing was so slow!

Well, now you can look for benchmarks for us to look for, and for geocaches ( I cached for geocaches within 5 miles of my place and am slowly going thru the list adding them in order of distance from my place. And weeding out the ones that don't show anymore.

I'll print the list of caches for the same distance from you, and we can look them over. My laser printer is probably better for that as it won't run if it gets wet.

Come up with a list of the ones that look good to you and send it to me and we'll see what looks good to me. That ought to get us some targets.

Got a package of 500 sheets of paper sitting here waiting for you, after that you are on your own.

If I get out to Gateway, I'll see what Office Despotpot charges for ink cartridges for your new printer.

If you haven't already figured it out given that it's almost 5 now, I'll have to postpone our next geocaching until next week, because I have a sunburn across my shoulders. :-(

Well, if you haven't gotten your own by then, we can share my sunscreen.
