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.


Power to the People

Here is another great video I've found on Operation Itch. It features ex-congresswoman, and Green Party Candidate for President, Cynthia McKinney. Everyone talks about what a great orator Obama is, but he doesn't hold a candle to Cynthia McKinney. I must admit, the only thing I know or remember about McKinney is her incident with police at the capitol building a few years ago, but hey, who hasn't wanted to go a little crazy on the police. One important thing she and other fringe candidates do is to show everyone else that there are Americans that are tired of the status quo. We want greater things for America than just the same old political rhetoric Obama and McCain are providing. Hopefully someday we won't have democrats or republicans, and we won't have big business, and the press core tools of big business deciding our elections. This country would be the greatest country on the planet if we would vote our minds and not our parties or who the press ordains. Power to the People.
