We're headed home although it's hardly along the most direct route. That's OK...we've seen all those roads before.
New roads offer new opportunities and specifically, new caching opportunities. Wayne has been able to add a couple of new states to the list of places where he's found a cache, something many geocachers keep track of as they get a larger number of caches. I'm looking forward to Alaska and Hawaii myself.
And he also logged a cache that fulfills a challenge he's been working on for a while. It involved finding a number of caches hidden in specific months and specific years. Well, I can be specific about those specifics: One in every month of every year since caching began in May 2000. The old ones were few and far between so he's covered a lot of miles to get them.
Here he is getting the very last one. Yes, he's under a bridge...that's where the cache was hidden. Totally troll territory but there were only hikers on this trail, not Billy Goat Gruff. Actually, I get part credit since I spotted it first and I have the mud on my new shoes as a memento of my involvement.
We've just about exhausted the new roads however. We're southbound tomorrow and if the weather cooperates, we'll sleep in our own beds tomorrow night.
