Last year, the Cornell Alumni Magazine updated its "The 161 Things Every Cornell Student Should Do." Low and behold, look at the new number 4: "Geo-cache your way across campus." Will all of Cornell's 14,000 undergrads take up geocaching now? I thought I'd add a new cache on campus to make it easier for everyone to complete their list.
I am a listmaker and so I was naturally drawn to the Cornell Alumni Magazine's "The 161 Things Every Cornell Student Should Do" (seen above) and its spin-offs. I soon realized, however, that although I often get lost in Cayuga Heights, I was never going to attend Hotelie Prom or take a PE class in juggling, and so it was going to be impossible for me to complete that challenge. The Cornell Daily Sun's version is even more out of reach as I am never going to "have sex in the stacks" nor "hook up with my T.A."
Happily, the parental version provides an appropriate amount of incentive for me as an Ithacan (but a non-Cornellian). In fact, I already visited the Fuertes Observatory back in 2007 on my very first day of geocaching while finding an original FoxPro cache. I love going to see After Eight and Last Call perform; and although I'm not a big team sports fan, I have been to one home game (not at Lynah). When I'm hungry after caching on campus, I get a kick out of buying a Cornell-grown apple from a vending machine. I read Homer & Langley last summer (and found the related cache - The Original Hoard - in NYC). I've watched the sun set from the top of Libe Slope, and learned the first two verses of the Alma Mater. I've been crossing things off left and right; maybe when I'm done we should celebrate with a bowling party geo-event at Helen Newman Lanes?
