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.

Chipmunk Base Camp GC12DBF DNF

 May 11 by djhobby (464 found)
A long time ago there was a chipmunk named Nathaniel. For a chipmunk he was unusually squirrely. He would gather all the nuts he could find, put them in a big pile, and declare that he was the king of all Nuttingham. Then he would chomp off the meaty part of an acorn and put the acorn top on his head like a crown, and say Ceasar was his great great great grand rodent. Then he took up his tiny violin, and started playing Midnight Oil's "Beds are Burning" while he set fire to the forest, obliterating all signs of his pile of nuts or any geocaches in the area.
