What can I say about this run? CCCA is an amazing woman and after this, I am not sure if I should sing her praises or put spiders in her boots...
Stage one - Tricky, but very interesting. Not where I thought at first, but found soon and then took a detour to grab the Moss Man. After that, I headed for...
Stage two - I came up on a fisherman and sneaked on past thinking, "Ha, he never even saw me". Then I took another look at my GPSr and realized he was within 30 feet of GZ. Oh cwap! How am I gonna do this? At first I posed as a surveyor for the Lebanon Waterworks and he was OK with that. I told him about the feature and he wondered why this area was called Pumping Station road. I was in the process of discovering that myself, so I filled him in and ended up telling him about Geocaching. He seemed pretty interested, but left shortly afterward. I kept searching for this one for a while. I should have played my hunch and made it quick, but I avoided it for far too long.
Stage three - My words as I realized where I needed to go: "Lynn, your nuts"! OK, so I am gonna get arthritis early in life. Right... I don't know how she finds these places. She has sharper eyes the I do. I had to laugh as I kept singing in my head "Sign, sign, everywhere a sign. Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?".
This only confirmed my earlier thoughts about her grasp on sanity.
Finally, I made it to GZ. No mistaking it either. Made the find and headed for Fangorn.
Thanks for the PAIN! (and the FTF - wohoo!)
