The last cache of a very fun 2 day caching trip with Lacknothing.
This one was really awesome! We were tired but after a stop at a Jimmy John's down in IL, we were operational again. Lacknothing read me the description as we drove. 4 miles at night? She's is a Virtual affectionado and I knew she really wanted this one so I thought Oh, what the heck.
We arrived at parking at 7:02 PM. The meters only had to be plugged until 7:00 PM - Ha! Perfect timing. It was dark! We meant to bring 2 flashlights but I forgot one. It was very fun at night! Soon the moon rose and was beautiful. I'm sure we missed a lot of things we might have seen during the day, but we got to see things from a different and very interesting perspective! At one point, we suddenly heard very loud hissing noises! Ahhhhhh! (Very scary!!!) My first thought was rattlesnake, but it turned out to be sprinklers, lol. Super-duper, industrial-grade sprinklers. We got a bit wet, both coming and going. What an adventure. Saw some beautiful houses. I enjoyed shining the flashlight into the water a few times in hopes of sighting some underwater activity but no luck. We heard a few big fish jumping. The turn-around point was very cool and we snapped pics of the moon over the water.
This was a super fun adventure. I love a cache that takes me on a journey and this one certainly did. Hope I get back to do it again during the day.
