LOOK WHAT COOL THING IS BACK 3/21/12
Hey, guess what! Sometimes I go geocaching! It is fun! I used to write blogs about it! You can read them here. I haven’t done any in a long, long time, though, but the other day I was thinking about ‘em and thought that there were probably a ton hiding in Cleveland, and guess what, there were.
So yesterday after class I trekked up to the lake, by the Great Lakes Science Center & Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, where I saw there were a few. And then I FOUND them. And took pictures.
It’s like a mile and a half from campus to the lakefront, but I was already kind of over there after attempting (and failing) to be the first person to visit the City Hall branch of the Cleveland Public Library as a part of this book hunt thing the CPL and TEDxCLE are putting on. (Tomorrow I’m going to try to hit up another branch. I want a dang shirt and free book.)
Behold! The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and a dude who stayed in that bent over position for as long as I was watching him.
Dogwood?trees look nice but smell like this vitamin powder that my friend Joseph used to put on crickets before feeding them to his toads.
There were so many seagulls. They all wanted to poop on me.
This is where the two things were; the first one I found = the lower left . It was under a bench.
I didn’t have a GPS with me, but really, most times you don’t need one; it’s easy enough to just look at a map of the coordinates beforehand & read people’s comments on the cache at geocaching.com. Unless it’s a nature-y one; there are a few ones in the woods I’ve tried to find like five times with a GPS even and there are just too many stupid trees and holes.
I took the sillyband and left a quarter? That’s not how you are supposed to do it. But I wanted the silly band, so.
Get a load of THIS LOSER!!!
Tried to take a pic of the CBGB’s awning inside but a dude in there was staring at me so I did not.
The second cache was at the end of this long pier/park.
On this thing.
Three other people had written in the log book the same day I was there; I’m assuming they were just stupid and left the cache face-up because the paper would have gotten ruined by rain and stuff if not.
Perched atop that weird cylindrical concrete thing, I tried to do a panorama and it did not work.
Then I put the cache away in a better place so it would not be destroyed by the elements.
Then I walked back to CSU!
And took a pic of one of the many giant guitars that live around the city. The giant FREE stamp is in the background, as is the aforementioned City Hall.
AND THAT’S ALL.
