Yesterday Beth and I took a a short hike to visit our geocaches. Hers had been reported as somewhat vandalized, and I wanted to drop a travel bug in mine. The vandalism to hers was not severe. Someone had found it and scattered the stuff in it around. The cacher who reported this could not find the a log book. So we went there with a new log book, and hid the cache somewhere else. We need to add more toys to it though.
Then we quickly made a visit to my cache. I dropped the travel bug in it, and also emptied all the trade items and arranged them in a pose.
I don’t know which if these guys is Little Cohas. We bushwhacked to the cache (that is the only way to get there), but from a different direction this time. On the way, we saw a log crossing Little Cohas Brook, and from the other side of the creek, it was only 50 feet or so to the railroad tracks. So we crossed the log.
Beth went first. Penny went last, but she decided to swim across. It was much easier going that way, because there is a trail that dumps out onto the railroad tracks.
We went home and I got cleaned up a bit. Va and I had tickets to see the Granite State Symphony Orchestra (compliments of my employer). They performed three songs, one of which I am well familiar with, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Russian Easter Overture. I especially enjoyed that one. Va liked that las piece they performed, Tchaikovski’s Fourth Symphony. I may have liked that one better had I been familiar with it, and I guess that says something about me.
The next morning we had a Pathfinder meeting, and we resumed work on the cardboard boats. Here’s where we left them:
I need to bring in a second set of sawhorses to put the kayak on. It’s hard to work on it on the table (can’t get the rope beneath it very handily). I am very well pleased with the progress of the kayak. If we pull this off (and it looks like we will), I am convinced it will be the fastest boat in the competition in May.
