|#49 just waiting for Shane!|
This one was one we had saved for some time, as it had the requirement of swapping out ONLY dinosaur prizes. We had to wait until we found one in another cache to move to this one before we could hunt it. Today was the day!
If my memory serves me correctly, there was another cache hidden in the same park, but we were unwilling to pursue it due to the condition of the trails. We will have to go back to this place and check it out another time.
|#50 hidden a little better|
Now it was time to find our #50. We wanted something not far from home, not a terribly difficult hide (so others could easily move the geocoin along that we would be dropping into it) and something interesting. We found a site that fit the bill behind the local fire department. As it turned out, the firefighters were out doing something with one of the tanker trucks. It appeared that they were rinsing it out, or washing it somehow. We watched them a bit before heading into the little prairie area for the find. We happened upon it sitting right out in the open, so we signed the log, dropped the coin, electronically logged the events and then placed it a little more discreetly, adding some natural elements of camouflage to keep it from being muggled.
In case you missed it, here is the link if you want to see where the Cursed Pirate's Booty Geocoin has been since we dropped it (and before): http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?tracker=TB2CRBT.
This was a great milestone for us and we were excited to log it. Since our goal for the day was not to cache until we dropped, but just to achieve this goal, we headed home from there. It wouldn't be long before we would be at it again anyway!
