My log entry from a recent cache find on Campobello Island . . . why, oh why do these things tend to happen to me? Really, I'm not a sicko perv Peeping Tom!!! :D

-------------

I think I DNFed this one the last time I was here on the island. Today I made the find . . . maybe it was better equipment . . . or maybe it was time and experience.

I did have a rather unusual thing happen however . . . I was walking down the trail when I spied a couple that were locked in a rather amourous looking embrace with one on top of the other doing what had to be . . . well an act just one step away from being illegal (at least illegal in public). From what I could see the couple still had their clothes on (trust me I didn't look too closely), but I opted to be a little discrete and took off for the cache by going cross country in "bush whacking" style.

I found the cache and then realized that the couple were still pre-occupied so I opted to return to my car in an even more direct (read more bush whacking) approach. I think this resulted in me crashing my way through the woods. I am sure to anyone from a mile and a half around it sounded as though there was a herd of elephants in the woods -- or at the very least a drunken Bigfoot.

In any case, after crashing and smashing my way through the wood-choked undergrowth I emerged back at my car in the lower parking lot and was jotting down my experiences at this cache when I saw the little black car that I assumed the couple had come in since it was in the upper parking lot come flying by me at breakneck speed . . . I figured they either thought that there was a Peeping Tom Convention on the Island or that the legend of the Campobello Island Yeti were true and were leaving as fast as they could!

Anyways . . . T: Nothing, L: Bouncy ball (appropriate, no?)

:)

As always, thanks for the experience.

I'm thinking that sometime in June . . . maybe towards the latter part of it . . . we should hook up and go north to the County for some caching and camping . . . and knock off a few more of the maps that we both need to nab . . . maybe on the way up we could swing by this one and you could convince me to drive up the mountain (although I have to tell you I'm not sure I have the cajones to go up this one.) :o

When I placed my cache on Mt. Waldo, I drove the Subaru 1/3/ of the way up the ledge. Decided I was being really rough on the clutch and turned around (not fun, steep angle sideways!).
If I can get the Subaru that far up, you guys with real 4x4s shouldn't have any trouble ;)

Sure Andy . . . shame me into it.

Honestly I have no doubt that the 4Runner is capable of it . . . it really is a SUV that is meant to go off-road . . . it's just mind over matter . . . and my mind isn't accustomed to those steep angles and I keep envisioning myself rolling the vehicle and then having to call up my wife to explain that I totaled the $24,000 vehicle while going up a mountainside to find a $1 McHappy Meal toy.

I supposed I could always let Hiram take the steering wheel since his alter ego is DareDevil . . . the geocacher without fear (and commonsense:D). However, after reading of his adventures on Harris Mountain a few years back with the dearly departed Jeep I'm not so sure that would be a good idea either! ;):D

2wheel drive service van? I doubt it!!!. We went up over it in TRF's Toyota and that was quite the road. Heck your Jeep didn't make it.....:D They dismantled the firetower a week or two after we made it to the top.

LOL,,,I drove to the top of Mt. Waldo twice too. Traction isn't the issue, clearance is.
