Hey Journal. I haven't been on any lengthy sojourns recently, but I have been popping off here and there to bolster my numbers. I have several personal obstacles to overcome, two of which are wanderlust and lack of focus. I can plan out a route and try to get many caches in a short time, but I get distracted by pretty colors and doodads.

I enjoy the snow. Like a lot of people, I particularly enjoy how a small layer of snow can make any landscape instantly more inviting, but it does make searching for ground-based caches more difficult. Not complaining, just explaining. Personally, I think it adds an extra element of fun. I just don't record myself cursing the gods when I don't find something.
The first part is the flagpole cache, which I thought was a pretty cool, but the second stage was anti-climactic and placed in (what I think) is a poor area due to the high frequency of homeless people smoking crack there. I still need to work on the Hat Cam.
The second part highlights what I was saying about the snow. Things look cool, but if there is any GPS bounce you are going to be spending a lot of time digging in Scooby Doo mode.
The third part is just me trying to justify why I threw out a cache. Did I do the right thing? I'm 90% sure I did. I looked around for a good bit before finding cache contents but no cache, and then I looked around some more for the container. I read some entries online and determined it had been this way for awhile, so I took what debris that was left and threw it out. I did right, yes Journal?
