Well it had been a while since I had seen my parents, and figured it would be time to visit with them (and get some tech work done for my dad). They live in the Comox Valley, and that area is one that I have only scratched the surface of when it comes to geocaching. So really a trip up there is a blessing for a geocaching couple like Just Leafy and I.
We started our trip on Saturday September 1st, and had it planned to attemp three caches on the way up. The first of which was in Cobble Hill, and this one particular cache was where I needed to drop off a Racing Travel Bug. This was the final spot it had to reach, and if it did it would win the race it was in. So we arrived a the park and made out way to the cache, and found with the assistance of another cacher that was passing by (sorry we can't remember his name). We placed the TB and headed on our way again.
The second stop for the last two we wanted to grab were in Coombs, home of the goats on the roof!
We found those two really quickly and then took a moment to grab one of thier famous Ice Cream Cones. Anyone who has stopped here knows what I am am talking about!!
But that little break in the trip was done all too soon, and then it was back to getting ourselves to Comox.
Really there is nothing more to tell about that day, so that was three caches down and many more to go over the next few days.
Once we were done, and with the energery we had left. Leafy, my Dad and I found just a few more and netted a total thirty caches for this day. It's so nice to get out and get lots of caches like this in a city you don't visit too often.
Well that is all I can say really about this trip. A big thanks to every cacher in Campbell River and the Comox Valley for all the great hides, we appreciate your dedication to providing an adventure to all who embrace this fine activity.
Oh and to my Dad.. Welcome to geocaching Postie Bear!!! He decided that with all the times he comes out caching with us when we are up here that he should create his own account. I am looking forward to the many adventures we can have together big guy!
