Spin me a Yarn!
In Alabama, United States
How Geocaching Works
A quick P&G With something a little extra
A "game" me and my friends used to play back on the day was something called spin the yarn. We'd start with a starter sentence, then each round submit out ideas for the next sentence, then vote on our favorite, add that to the story. We'd add the winning sentence to the story, then go on to the next round and the next sentence.
Writing is an important method of communication, and I'd like to see more of it in submitted logs. So I place this cache.
Wheh...7 logs in and already avoided the first problem! Let's hope Gina can find her cache! Congrats to (who else than) Parrgolf for the FTF!
23 Logs and Gina has had to deal with snakes, climb a cliff, and is getting ready to scuba? Gina the Geocaching Giraffe is definitely more prepared on her excursions that I am :P Hope this 5/5 FTF hunt is worth it!
Special logging request:
As part of your log, submit the next sentence to the story. It's not necessary to log the cache, but should be fun. Additions to the story must be family appropriate, and any logs that are not will be deleted.
I will regularly add the story so far to the cache description so you won't have to go down too far when writing your sentence. Good luck and good hunting!
SAFETY NOTE: Please PLEASE don't try to stop on Old Madison Pike to get this. There is a parking area RIGHT next to the cache, you just have to go up the road a bit to get to the entrance.
The story (so far):
Gina the Geocaching Giraffe had just arrived at the trail head, ready to go out caching. Gina couldn't help but notice that the sun was high and it was beginning to get hot. She made sure her neckpack was stocked and securely fastened. She grabbed were water bottle and favorite GPS device and ran out the door. Not knowing what lie ahead of her..yes, a big, black snake! The snake was determined to stop Gina from going on her hiking/caching adventure. It coiled up ready to strike.The sinister snake decided that 'Jst Lookn' appeared to be harmless, so let the old folks pass without incident.
After Gina recovered from the snake scare, she walked down the trail towards the 5/5 cache. The walk was not without incident, the ground was muddy and the soil was soft-Gina had to brace herself to keep from slipping. What was going on? Quicksand? Was this the reason for the 5/5 rating? Fortunately Gina had a big crush on Bear Grylls and had seen the episode on how to survive quicksand...'no other cacher has the skills that I do,' chuckled Gina to herself, "I will certainly take the FTF traveller." Gina glanced at her GPSr every so often. 50 ft...30ft...10 ft. She looked around. All she could see nearby was a tall cliff..."Maybe that's the reason for the 5/5?" She mused to herself once more. Gina was then forced to get out her climbing gear.
She climbed up the cliff and looked once more at her GPSr...it was pointing straight ahead...into a lake. So Gina, being ever the prepared cacher, put on her scubba diving gear.
