Found it HoustonControl found Barney Smith's Toilet Seat Museum

Thursday, November 05, 2009Texas

When I told the wife we were going to stop in San Antonio (on our trip to New Braunfels) to visit a toilet seat museum, she just kind of rolled her eyes, like she does for most geocaching stuff. After two hours in the museum, I had to drag her out of there! We really enjoyed our visit and Barney is just a delight!. My wife's eyes really lit up when she saw the lid for Torrajon AFB in Madrid, Spain. She lived in Torrajon base housing in Madrid for 3 years as a kid while her father was stationed there. Barney had her sign that particular seat and she was excited to do so. After signing the Geocaching Seat #3, we spotted a seat decorated for the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and mentioned that we had attented those games, so he had us sign that seat too! We watched the video he had of his appearances on The Early Show, The View, and Montel Williams. I donated a HoustonControl geocoin to the collection here and will activate it for others to discover. Thanks for the great virtual -- email on the way!

infoA virtual cache is a cache that exists in a form of a location. Depending on the cache "hider," a virtual cache could be to answer a question about a location, an interesting spot, a task, etc. The reward for these caches is the location itself and sharing information about your visit.

Because of the nature of these geocaches, you must actually visit the location and acquire the coordinates there before you can post. In addition, although many locations are interesting, a virtual cache should be out of the ordinary enough to warrant logging a visit.

Virtuals are now considered waymarks on Waymarking.com.
