Who are we? We are two wacky artists from either side of the country who have discovered that we are kindred spirits- in fact, elf sisters. We both like to be outdoors and exploring, so we've created the blog to share our adventures!
Note: Here be spoilers. Well, sometimes, but you may find photos or info about the location or description of a cache. You've been warned!

More adventures of Taurandirath

Yesterday I got to go geocaching again- hooray! This time I went with both my dad (he made an account on geocaching.com as Gary87) and my fiancé (he's under my account name, but his alias in logs is JoC).

Our travels this time took us to Glen Providence Park in Media. Silly me forgot to get pictures of said park, but I did get one of the sign at the entrance:

Dad had been there earlier in the day to look for caches but only found one of the two and didn't sign the log that he did find, so he let me and Josh use the GPS and navigate to them. The first cache we looked for was THR3E Billy Goats. We got to the location quite easily, then when we climbed under the bridge (because, duh, look at the name of the cache, lol), I knew exactly where it would be. We handed Josh a stick to poke around in the spot I pointed out (he wanted to avoid snakes and things) and sure enough, out popped the tiny cache. I opened it up:

Since this was a micro (yay, we found our first micro!), I couldn't leave anything, but I did sign the log for us:

There was no room on the side of the paper where the 2010 finds were logged, so I had to use the other side. I'm assuming it's out of date because of the way the paper was folded? Ah well, it was neat getting to see all the finds from years ago on there. :D

We got some pictures of Josh, me (ugh, I look terrible in that photo- I'm not that hideous, I swear!), and dad holding the tiny cache:

We rehid this one, climbed back onto the path, and set out to find the next one, From Glen to Glen. This was a larger cache, but as we got close, the GPS started acting wonky and kept telling me it was in different directions. Luckily dad had been there earlier that day and found this one (the satellites must have liked him better earlier, lol), so he brought us to the cache. I opened it up and signed the log, then passed it off to Josh to do (what else?) a drawing of Igik and his club symbol (since JoC stands for "Jack of Clubs").

Then dad and I held the cache so I could get a picture of it:

I took a bouncy ball and left one of my handmade bracelets, then we rehid the cache and trekked back to the car. It was a long trek back- or, rather, very very much uphill, so I was too tired to be able to find the other nearby caches, so we'll get those soon. Amazingly, for all that we had to cross a stream and pass a pond, I didn't fall in. Hooray!

I'm loving geocaching and getting to hike through some gorgeous woods that I'd never been to before- that's one good thing about living in Pennsylvania: we have so many lovely parks and forests! :D And I'll admit, getting to trek through the wilderness makes me feel like my D&D characters; all I'm missing is a fox at my side. ;)
