Flew the coop

We decided to fly the coop yesterday, driving around in Mount Vernon, walk the dog, look for Geocaches, etc. Didn’t have a lot of luck with the caches, this is one that we had looked for in passing a few months ago, but the dog was too crazy that...

THE PUP geocache could use some “Deep Woods OFF”.

We recently found a geocache called “THE PUP” in Lake Stevens- in some lovely woods behind the senior center. Teresa found a safety cone for her walking stick. The cache was on a a winding trail where it wasn’t always clear if you were on the trail or a...

Trollbooth cache gives me a Stephen King feeling
