I have really had very poor internet, so was unable to post. Tuesday night we went on a night cache. The Quartzsite Cachers had placed reflective markers at about eye level on cactuses and trees especially for this event. You had to use a powerful light to see them. They were placed in a big circle with the spots about 75 feet apart. We went with a group, and it was a relatively warm evening, and everyone had a good time. They had a vial of what looks like a necklace with the string or wire taken out in the cache for everone. The small purple stones had a small hole in them, and this is what makes me think this. After I looked at them, I said “Oh No, not another hobby”. A lot of the Boomers and geocachers did bead work, making necklaces and bracelets.
Wednesday after our morning get together, I decided to go with some of our new friend’s geocaching. What started out as a 3 ½ mile walk, ended up being a 5 mile walk and hike. We found three geocaches, one of which was very hard to see. It was a film canister down in a hole covered with rocks. It took about ½ hour to find it, because it was so small. We were gone about 4 hours. I found out how out of shape I am. Cindy stayed at the 5er and sewed all day because she said she was not up to a long hike, but she is working up to it.
We played geocache BINGO in the morning Guess what Cindy was the first one done and won a little prize. Cindy being forward--- can you believe!!
The group had pot luck at 4:30 with just what I needed, lots more food. There was so many different things, that as usual, I over ate. After that we went back to the trailer and watched a movie till bed time. I was quite sore from our walk.
An old mine we found on our walk.
Saying good-by to our new friends.
