Well, we're back. What a great place to visit, specially when the high in Arkansas is 100 + and the high there is 72. It was great. The scenery is like nothing you could imagine. It was absolutely breath taking.
However, I was somewhat disappointed with caching. Granted we only did 11 caches because all that we were trying to see in a very short time but each of them, though in a great location with a great view, were very limited on trade. I'm not really talking about the quailty of items but the quantity. A regular size ammo can would have about 5 to 6 things in it and a log book. That's it. We had 4 young girl cachers all younger then 9 who would have loved to rummage through the contents and there was nothing there for them. I know most don't like McToys or Oriental Trading toys in their caches but for the kids you just can't beat one that is full to the gills with them. That was kind of a let down.
I can say for that reason alone I'd like to thank each of you that work so hard to make cache in Arkansas a family fun treasure hunt where the prize may not be a new gps (not that I found anything like that there either) but something at a child could love. I believe that is part of our mission as a member here, right? THANKS Arkansas.
I did love my caching experience in Alaska, don't get me wrong. We are planning to go back so we can find more and more, because the location of each of the caches we found showed us a part of Alaska that we fell in love with. I could be persuaded to move there........
