|What a strange and beautiful pastime.|
When all the hot air balloons had returned safely to the field that evening they celebrated with a "Glow."
|This is our own geocache soon to be hidden deep in the woods|
Geocaching is a world wide phenomena where small caches of random goodies are hidden inside waterproof containers and stashed in out of the way places. The GPS coordinates are then taken and recorded at http://www.geocaching.com/. There geocachers can look up the caches that are near by and go treasure hunting for them. Our group scrambled through the woods across the way searching for a couple of hours. We were quite successfully in the end locating two caches. Little log books are kept inside the containers where we signed in and left clever messages for our brother and sister geocachers who would follow. Of course, once bitten by the geocache bug, we had to put together a cache of our own. The prizes inside included a hand made survival bracelet made from yards of parachute cord, an African coin from Kenya, and flag pins.
It was a perfect weekend and I'm sure glad I had Monday off. Whew!
