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.


Woman Claims God Shot Her and Her Great Granddaughter

Charlotte Thompson was waiting at a stoplight in Indianapolis, when a gun fight broke out nearby. Stray bullets "guided by God" entered her car and struck her great granddaughter in the stomach. Another bullet "guided by God" was only stopped from hitting her other granddaughter by a watermelon sitting in the granddaughter's lap. The police credited the watermelon for saving the girls life. "Thank Xenu," one officer was overheard saying, "that we have cheap immigrant laborers that are able to grow such bullet resistant melons. If Americans grew these melons, that little girl would be dead." The police are still looking for the shooter. He is believed to be a tall bearded man with flowing robes. It is also believed that the man somehow used a book on magic to somehow draw the bullets with more deadly accuracy toward the innocent bystanders. More here.
