Found it Backwards Charlie from Austin found Gnomes: Keepers of the Cache

Tuesday, February 21, 2012Texas

Find #16 for today, #14526 overall. TFTC. An easy cache.

The day turned out to be a nice sunny day. A big contrast to all the rainy days I have had to drive through over the past week.

Tuesday, February 21, 2012, every body back to work after Presidents Day. The fifty second (52) day of three hundred sixty six (366) days of year 2012. Remember, this is a leap year. Do not forget to find a cache on February 29th, Leap Year Day, or you will have to wait another four years to fill in that date on your date grid.

One of my goals is to find ten or more caches for each date on the date grid by the time I have been caching for ten years. I have already achieved that goal for February 21st, so the caches I find today will help bulk up my numbers and move me onward toward fifteen thousand (15000) finds.

Last Saturday, February 11th, I got off the cruise ship Norwegian Epic in Miami after cruising to St. Martin, French West Indies; Sint Maarten, Dunch Antilles; St. Thomas, U S Virgin Islands; and the Bahamas. I found at least one cache in each of them. Two of my finds in the Bahamas were First To Finds. That surprised me since the caches had been published a week earlier and the Epic was the third of five cruise ships to dock there that day. So I expected there would be several names in the logs by the time I got there. Maybe the fact that it is over a two hour round trip ride to get to those two, and taxis charge anywhere from $45 up per hour.

Today I am headed from Lufkin, TX, to Bryan/College Station, TX following TX 94 and TX 30, and hoping to get some caches along the way. I could get more miles done today if I would not stop to grab every cache close to my route. When you are retired and do not have to rush to get anywhere, why not take your time and do some caching. Keep on caching. Or as we say in Texas, Cache on Y'all.

infoThis is the original cache type consisting, at a bare minimum, a container and a log book. Normally you'll find a tupperware container, ammo box, or bucket filled with goodies, or smaller container ("micro cache") too small to contain items except for a log book. The coordinates listed on the traditional cache page is the exact location for the cache.
