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.

A few stiff drinks really does make other people appear more
attractive, according to researchers who say the alcohol makes us
think about sex.

A test on drunk university students has scientifically proven
what was common pub knowledge - that drinking improves the
appearance of those around you.

A team from the University of Bristol in England conducted a
controlled experiment on 84 young heterosexuals, getting half of
them tipsy on a drink and asking all of them to rate the
attractiveness of people in photographs.

Both drunk men and drunk women rated the faces as being more
attractive than did those who were sober, according to New

Which explains this, Nikki has been drunk since we met.
