Welcome to my World of Wonderment

Our planet is a neat place, full of weird and unusual people doing weird and unusual things. One oddball thing I like to do is geocache. What other activity is there that makes people travel hundreds of miles to climb a mountain, wade a river, and fight a Bigfoot, just to be the first person to sign a piece of paper rolled up in a 35mm film canister stuffed in the knot hole of a tree? I can't think of any other sport that has such a great mix of technology and the wonderful outdoors. A lot of geocaches are placed in a beautiful setting, or hidden in a challenging or unique way, or in a historical setting. Geocaching allows the finder to share in some of the hiders favorite places, and along the way you get to meet some interesting characters, and occasionally learn something new. While this blog is primarily a geocaching blog, I also use this place to post the occasional funny video or weird news story, or as a platform to rant or rave about something I really have to share. But for the most part this website is about you, the weirdo walking around in circles, talking into your GPS unit like it's a phone, pretending your taking pictures of a phone booth to find find the tiniest micro-cache, or circling your car around and around a light pole in a parking lot trying to retrieve a cache without even getting out of your car.



We just saw Wall-E and it was great. I give it a 9 out of 10. It has some of the best animation ever made. It has a cute script and has a good moral story. We went to the Premier Theater in Bedford and watched a matinee. I would not recommend the Premier Theater though. First of all they don’t take credit/debit cards at all. It was pretty dirty, and the screen had a big dirty, shiny spot right in the middle of it. And for Ben, the deal breaker was, they didn’t have any wieners. Everyone knows a theater has to have wieners. How can you be expected to appreciate a fine work of art on the big screen if you can’t have some erthylbate in your mouth. But regardless of our surroundings, we persevered and enjoyed the movie sans hot dogs. I’m not sure if little kids will love this movie. There were about a dozen or so kids watching this movie with us, and I never heard the big laughs like you hear in some “kids” movies. But it could be they were just too enthralled with the awesome animation. But who cares what a bunch of kids think about a movie anyway? Kids can watch the same Barney movie over and over again. For those of you who were concerned about Ben’s lack of pork intake, we went to the Fairfax Inn afterward and he had a half of rack of ribs.
