Last week I went to get the big "TEXAS" series and took the wrong approach. I am new to the area and moved here from Florida so I know nothing of Texas caches. After looking more closely at the map I figured out a possible new approach that could get me to the letters. I took the the Noble Road Trail and it proved to be the correct way. I didn't get the whole NRT but I did get a good portion which helped me out to the letters of "TEXAS".
My plan was to tackle the entire "TEXAS" series today... I failed; however, I did knock out a really good portion of it. I was alone on this adventure and I was hiking from 11am-4:30PM. By the end of the excursion I was totally exhausted. I am not sure how many miles I hiked but it was definitely a lot. Like I said, I was alone on this mission, and that may have proven to be a bad idea. There were feral pig tracks EVERYWHERE... but, fortunately, I did not encounter any. I did encounter 2 brown bears. I kept my distance but took pictures. It was an amazing site to see these creatures but I knew if I alarmed them they would not be too happy... we each went our separate ways. I know all of these caches say to bring snake boots... I own none so I wore my steal toe shoes. I didn't see a single snake today BUT I wish I would have had snake guards for all the thorn bushes I trampled through. Even with jeans on, both of my legs are completely scratched up and I have a few scratches on my arms.
I'm not sure when I will be coming out to tackle the rest of these caches but it is definitely on my agenda. Thanks for all the caches that have been placed out here. A lot of work went into these and I commend you for it. 'Til next time...

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.
