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.


Revolutionary Road

I just watched Revolutionary Road.  What a horrible mess of a movie.  It was well done, well acted, and so well directed, I give it 7 out of 10 for the production value, but the plot was miserable.  Not miserable meaning it didn't make sense, but miserable because the characters were such miserable people.  I started out liking the movie but the more it dragged on the more I hated it.  As with most movies, after the first act, I thought it was an interesting story, and I should hold my judgment  until it was over.  After the second act, I was still thinking, not too bad, but could be better.  Even halfway through the last act I felt the film had some redeeming value.  But in the last scene where the husband of the realtor turns his hearing aid down, I was struck with the total piece of work the director was shoveling, and I fucking hated it.   I would recommend having a medical procedure done over watching this movie.   Booooooo
