Geocache Description:

This cache was spawned by the King Boreas cache "Jukebox Hero" (GC14C5W). Head to the Bryn Mawr Fields to seek a small camo-taped container with room for small items. Congrats to Bobcam on the FTF!

"Against the Wind" is the title track from the 1980 album by Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band. The album reached No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart, while the single topped out at No. 5. The Eagles' Glenn Frey supplied backing vocals on the track.

In a 1980 Rolling Stone interview, Seger said the song was "about trying to move ahead, keeping your sanity and integrity at the same time." In a radio interview, he said the song resulted from his time as a cross-country runner in high school.

"AGAINST THE WIND"
It seems like yesterday
But it was long ago
Janie was lovely, she was the queen of my nights
There in the darkness with the radio playlng low
And the secrets that we shared
The mountains that we moved
Caught like a wildfire out of control
Till there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove

And I remember what she said to me
How she swore that it never would end
I remember how she held me, oh so tight
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then

Against the wind
We were runnin' against the wind
We were young and strong, we were runnin'
Against the wind

And the years rolled slowly past
And I found myself alone
Surrounded bv strangers I thought were my friends
I found myself further and further from my home
And I guess I lost my way
There were oh so many roads
I was living to run and running to live
Never worried about paying or even how much I owed
Moving eight miles a minute for months at a time
Breaking all of the rules that would bend
I began to find myself searching
Searching for shelter again and again
Against the wind
A little something against the wind
I found myself seeking shelter against the wind

Well those drifter's days are past me now
I've got so much more to think about
Deadlines and commitments
What to leave in, what to leave out

Against the wind
I'm still runnin' against the wind
Well I'm older now and still runnin'
Against the wind
