Our first "multi"

Grace and I set off alone in search of a cache in a familiar place- our beloved Pala Community Park. This waypoint was the springboard for a 3 part hunt. We found the spot quickly and rooted around, hoping we weren't bothering the nearby tennis players. Having observed the warning about thorns, I was convinced it would be in the underbrush.

It was a thrilling surprise to notice the reflective numbers on the side of the strangely humming green box, and suddenly remember the title- Independence Day- brilliant! After getting the #s jotted down from the reverse of the cleverly dogeared magnetic find. She played on the swings while I "deciphered" the coordinates.

We went back after lunch with Shawn, and he was quick to notice the next clever clue, once we ran across the open grass to the second waypoint. I wasn't convinced it was what we were looking for- so I hung back while Grace and Shawn went traipsing through the undergrowth. It was faded, so a little hard to read and I examined it closer and checked the other pole- noticing there was no writing on the sticker there, so I figured he was right and we all attempted to guess at the final, which we did not find... yet! We'll go back again. This is such fun stuff!

I see you have a blogger blog now too aye? I have one but it's dormant. Too many blogs for one girl to handle. Anyway, this geogache thing looks like a very Bellah type adventure. Jeff would so not be into searching for little boxes with magnetic fields unless lots of cold hard cash was involved. hee hee


Shawn last finished Da Vinci's Last Supper in Nov! No time for puzzles this fall- can't wait until we are in our own place again!!
