(FTF) \ (PAT)
Up early this morning & thought I would take a chance for a FTF. Since the coordinates were changed yesterday & still nobody has (logged) it; why not give it a try. It was a nice drive to the beginning of the trail, everything was good. As I was getting close, I pulled off to the side of the road.
What I thought was a nicely plowed shoulder was just soft snow. I felt my right tire sinking a little, but too late! I’m in deep… I had a hard time getting out of the car. Just as I was getting my phone out, a friendly man came by with his little dog (*that wanted to eat me*), & asked if I needed some help. Yes please.
He didn’t have a chain (today) but gave me a lift to the nearest farmhouse. Nobody home. We got lucky on the second house. The owner was happy to lend us a nice strong chain. Now back to the car. We were able to hook the chain easily & in less than one minute I was out. I had to be very persuasive to get him to take a small reward for helping a stranger on the side of the road. Thank you very much! I then took the chain back to the owner & thanked him also.
Oh yes, I almost forgot. Back to the cache...
This time I am very careful. Off the road & not too far into the ditch.
At ground Zero I start my search & find it quickly. I am almost certain that I looked here the last time, but maybe not that high.
I can almost say it’s my lucky day. I am FTF.
For me it’s not about the numbers but the adventure getting there, & this was an adventure !
Thank you VictoriousLady for the Great cache.
