|2 trackables! :-)|
|#24 was little!|
|They can be anywhere!|
|#26 was labeled as a geocache|
|#27 was a thermos covered in |
|Proud discovery of #28|
Our next find was similarly placed at a local grocery chain store.
Geocaches come in all shapes, sizes and creative containers. The smallest we have found to date was our next, #30 (9 for the day).
It was magnetic, stuck to a sign post at the end of a road, behind the sign. The log was super small and a challenge to sign, but OH SO worth it. What a fun find this one was. While we were there, we noticed a QR code stuck to the back of the sign. Shane scanned it and learned that it had been placed there by the cache owner. It linked to an application that had to be downloaded, so we passed on it. It did, however give us an idea. (More on that in a future post)
As I said, it was getting cool, so we made one more stop for the evening in an attempt to pick up our #10 for the day and #31 for the record. Scio Township (our area for the day) has loads of caches. They also have LOTS of parks for public enjoyment. This find was fairly quick (using our "geosense" to find it). The problem we encountered here was the litter. There were items on the ground here that lead us to believe that this park is more often used for less family friendly, "seedy" or "racey" activities. It was distressing to see. We were immediately thankful the little one had not accompanied us on the trip as she has a habit of picking up things to ask what they are... regardless of what they are. That would have been a not so fun end to a great day of caching.
All in all, it was a marvelous day out in nature and time very well spent together. It was history making for us; our first 10 cache day and we found our first travel bug to boot!
