My darling husband (I think I shall call him that from now on) and I took are two little rascals to Greenleaf State Park near Muskogee, OK.
We have not Geocached in a long time so we thought we would look up some caches this time.
What is Geocaching you ask?
Pretend like you asked…
It is when you use a GPS to find treasure…
That is what I tell my boys at least.
The less exciting version is:
Someone puts a water proof container (box, ammo can, film canister) in a location (mostly parks but they are sometimes just on the side of the road) and then puts the location up on the Internet. You then get the location, enter it into your GPS device, and try to find what they have hidden.
The bigger caches (containers) hold little trinkets that you can trade another trinket of the same value for.
If you have boys and you tell them they are pirates looking for treasure they may think they have to defend it.
Sorry to anyone that met us on the trail and my boys tried to attack you…
I saw it and said, “this is Oklahoma, you don’t hide things is a big rock pile. There are snakes.”
He was looking for the cache when I hear, “hmm”.
I know what that sound means.
So I very anxiously asked, “what?”
He said that he thinks he found a Cottonmouth and to bring him the camera.
I did, because I am odd like that.
How close was he you ask?
One of us needed to live for the children’s sake.

Not all the caches have snakes guarding them. I promise!
