Today, I joined up with 4Wheeling-1 to grab a FTF on a cache in Morrilton. I have cached in the rain before, but today it was not just raining it was a Monsoon (Flash Flood)
We drove around the cache trying to get a close as possiable and 450 feet was it. When we got out of the truck it was raining and we were both soaked in the first 100 feet. We didn't bring an umbrella cause neither one of us wanted to hold due to the Lighting .
The next 200 feet we were walking in water ankle deep maybe more (depending on whose ankles was measuring).
Then we came upon a river, well it sure did resemble a river lots of sticks and trash flowing by us.
What do you think we did?
We are standing in the middle of a field soaking wet a 150 feet from a possiable FTF.
Yeap, we started fording this overflow of water heading towards the cache. At one point the water was over my knees, I didn't look back at 4W-1 to see how high the water was on him. After crossing a 100 foot river we finally got on high ground quickly spotted the cache.
The next problem was to sign the log. Well we did that, but it got kinda wet in the process. This is something we neither one thought about when we started, does this make us bad cachers? I hope not. I like to think of us a energetic and always ready for a challenge cachers.
We then crossed the river and walked splashing water on each other back to the truck.
Did we have FUN YES
Do we have any sense NO
Memories of one of the funniest caches I have ever done PRICELESS
It has been a long time since I laughed all the way to a cache and all the way back.
