    Default Priceless

    Two roundtrip tickets on Southwest Air, Manchester, NH to Louisville, KY $380

    Four days full-size rental car $190

    Four nights motel, king size bed and wi-fi in IL, MS, TN and KY $320

    1300 miles worth of gas, tolls and travel costs $220

    Various meals and incidental costs $250

    Nine states off the Geocaching Map PRICELESS!!


    My wife and I leave 10/18 for a quick hitting trip to bag caches in NINE states.
    Before we come home we hope to have finds in Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee and Kentucky.

    Twenty hours of drive time, not counting stops to cache, eat and necessity.


    We must be crazy, but it sure is fun.

    Been there, done that, got the t-shirt...

    But when you get back, I'd be interested to hearing your comments about caching in those states! LOL!

    Default Southern Jaunt

    Although there's not a lot of time, you need some basic, but important knowledge before you visit these states. First of all, 3 of the 4 are "Red" states. Can you list the top four Nascar drivers competing in the Chase? Do you even know what the chase is? Do you know what scrapple is and where it comes from? Read up on it before you take the plunge at breakfast some morning.

    Rental car? Let's hope it's American made and you know how much horsepower it has. I'd recommend you rent a Chevy Silverado, you'll blend in well with one of those.

    Hats are of critical importance. They won't recognize the Groundspeak logo so leave that hat at home. The top three hats in Tennessee are John Deere, Cat Diesel Power and the new one that says "Sarah makes my knees knock."

    And no matter what you say, don't mention to anybody that you practice law foir a living.

    Don't forget to put gravy on everything you eat. Enjoy the trip. YEEEHA!

    We'll probably see excuses/explanations for this sterotypically offensive post, but...

    For the record: RULOST2?'s family lives in Mississippi and Tennessee.

    1. They are NOT NASCAR fans.
    2. They don't care for scrapple - a Pennsylvania, New Jersey staple.
    3. Only RULOST2?'s father - a disabled veteran - drives an American car - a Ford Crown Vic.
    4. Hats? Just curious, but what logo is on the hat you're wearing in your avatar?
    5. Yeah - we KNOW you're a lawyer. At least 75% of your posts mention it.
    6. Gravy? Hmmm... Been to the deep south several times, lived in Texas and North Carolina, but never saw anyone putting gravy on everything. Confused about this one.

    Why not live life like it is your last day....instead of pretending to be a member of the Peter Pan Club and believing you will be around forever.

    Whats wrong with gravy? It's a critical part of my 'work until I have a heart attack because by 401k just tanked' retirement strategy!

    All politics aside, Sarah does kind of make my knees knock.

    Why can't we get a government sponsered tick eradication program?

    Default You've got to be Kidding?

    Really? Did you some how come away with the impression that I was not being funny here Bruce? What side of the bed did you wake up on? And I if I do mention from time to time what I do for living, it's almost always with a "smile." The hat, Sugarloaf. What's your's say? That's a nasty post my friend to something obviously intended to be funny!

    At least FFJ understood the humor in my post. Sheesh is right!
