Being surprised on your own is just too sweet!
Now, on with the post. (Scroll down.)
Although a bit late for Halloween, the lovely and vivacious wayfarer wanted to do a Scary Halloween series of Geocaches located not too far away. This is a series of 12 geocaches based on a Scary Halloween theme. Each cache contains part of a code, that when deciphered, leads the hunter to Number 13.
We tried one last weekend, and were thrilled with what we found. So we thought we'd try our hand at a bunch of them this week. For the first one we tried, instructions on the GC website instructed the finder to select one of the masks sealed inside the cache container and photograph yourself. If you don't upload a photo to the page, the find would be removed.
After a nice walk around a secluded lake, we found that cache, donned the masks, and took photos.
Then off to to the next one. But it was a bit more challenging that we had expected. View this if you don't believe me.
As we discovered one geocache after another, the miles went by as fast as the time. We put five miles on the hiking boots and ended up with seven out of the twelve in the series. We also scored one from the Halloween 2007 series.
We'll get the rest of them on Thanksgiving Day. Here's a few photos of some of the caches in the series.
And yes, these are real geocache containers.
