The Randomness of Former Strangers
I'm still relatively new to the game, but I have had a few experiences of racing for the FTF and being pleasantly surprised to meet up with other cachers seeking the same prize. I would love to vicariously share in some of your unplanned experiences of meeting up with fellow cachers on the game trail.
Just a few days ago, my daughter and I took off after a cache by us6keys in Conway for FTF and were searching for about 20 minutes (I am too cheap to buy a real gps unit, and my phone's gps hates the trees) and having a great time trekking through the woods. We saw a few deer, and after a while Rosemary (5 years old) says, "Hey daddy, there's another deer! But hes a lot bigger, and hes wearing an orange shirt!" Turns out that deer was captaincooder with his son! After a nice chat we sought off and eventually captaincooder's son found the cache. Was a very pleasant time!
