We went out to do some geocaching this morning, back over on the new bike/hike trail along side the new section of I-520 that we covered part of last weekend. That section had 8 caches and this section had one until yesterday evening. The second was published late last night and this morning no one had logged it as found yet. With all the FTF Hounds around here we didn’t expect to be the first, we were sure someone already had and just hadn’t logged it yet. Didn’t matter one way or the other, we didn’t find it and no one has yet either…We did find the other cache though. We just didn’t have our geo-mojo working at all today and ended up with just three finds to go along with our three measly finds.
Now there are three caches on that section as part of our mission was to place a cache along that stretch of trail. It is out in the wild, just not published yet and like the rest of our hides it should be an easy find for folks. We think we are going to head out tomorrow morning and place a couple more out there. We scoped out a couple of likely spots. One of which we eliminated when on my way back down the embankment I slipped on the newly planted grass and did a slo-mo face plant at the bottom.
After giving up on the caching we stopped in downtown Augusta at the Greek Orthodox Church to have some lunch. We had bought a meal ticket last Monday when we ate at the local Greek place. The half chicken meal with sides was just the right size for us to split. On the way home we detoured through North Augusta to get some ice cream at the Pink Dipper, but all I had in my wallet was a buck, so we had to stop at an ATM. As I pulled to a stop at the bank I noticed that the Emperor’s odometer was sitting at exactly 107,000. In honor of that I tried to withdraw $107,000 from the ATM, but apparently that was above my daily withdrawal limit, because it only gave me $40.
