    Sometimes I know I should just stay home and not even try to geocache.

    Number of miles put on the beater car while geocaching: 254 . . . as I drove to LA and then up to Dexter

    Number of DNFS for the day: 5 . . . my most ever in one day's attempt

    Number of cache finds for the day: 3

    Number of destroyed caches: 1 . . . it appears as though a TB Hotel was muggled

    Number of saved TBs from the destroyed cache: 1 . . . found about 10 feet away in the leafs

    What my beater car gets for gas mileage: 35 mpg . . . thank goodness

    What I paid in gas today: $40 approximately (I gassed up at the end of the day and decided that I deserved to buy some mint chocolate ice cream for dessert tonight after today's abyssmal caching

    Number of cachers that I met while out and about today: 1 . . . ran into Becket . . . this is the second time we have met while out geocaching at the same time

    I've only run into geocachers twice while out on the trails and I didn't know them. I'd love to just run into one of you that I've met, or haven't in Jake's case. I've been geocaching in someone's town and wonder if they were anywhere around the area. LA isn't far for us, and we've tried several times, but we are not stealthy enough with the kids for quite a few of those and the city driving makes us nuts. Hey you rescued someone's TB, will you be a new member of the Rescue Rangers?

    I don't know . . . my understanding is that the Rescue Rangers is an elite corp of men and women who are willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to insure that no cache or TB is left behind. This creme de la creme of geocachers knows no physical limitations and will not rest until their mission is accomplished . . . . kind of like geocaching green berets minus the berets (although maybe we could take up a collection to purchase them some cute French hats.) In this case I simply was the good samaritan, the helpful bystander, etc. who just happened to be there at the right time and right place.

    It was a bad numbers day though.

    Ah, it was just another in a long line of DNFs for the day so I can't say I was surprised. Nice area though . . . and this wasn't a total bust. I was able to talk a bit to some brother firefighters from Corinna about a house fire the night before and talk shop.
