Almost Lost My GPS
I did a few caches today and on one of them I almost lost my GPS... As most of you know a few months ago I bought a new GPS, A Garmin 60CS that I spent a fortune on, well I was doing a cache in Canada and it was real steep, terrain was 4.5. (Four Falls) And I was slidding and next thing I know I have my hand on tree branch holding me up, trying to get footing.
After I gasp my breath, I realize I have only have held onto my digital camera and the paper with the cords on it, where did the GPS go?
You have to realize I am full of branches going left and right and scratches all over my arms from the fall. You have to realize its fall, leaves are on the ground everywhere and the angle of the slope I am on.
I looked down and couldn't see my GPS. I figured, GREAT! Its probably in in the river, or whatever cause it slid down. Well, I looked and looked (I was alone) for about 20 min. I wasn't going to give up, I just bought it and wouldn't be able to replace it. I knew it had to be around, just had to backtrack and see how far down the slope it could have gotten before getting caught up in the muck and leaves. After 20 min I finally seen the top of my GPS. Was I ever relieved...
Heres where the peice of the puzzle gets worse though... I went to Four Falls for the earth cache first and make it back to the truck. Got in the truck and left then realized the Limestone cache is in the same place, so I did the walk twice (the second time is where I lost the GPS) and come to find out, the Limestone cache was deleted a few weeks ago or so... I think the Four Falls eart cache took its position. I didn't know this. So I looked and looked, and looked... and didn't help my GPS was where the sun don't shine and I wasn't getting any kind of signal so it was going in and out... I gave up looking the better part of an hour (I hate to give up!!!) came home to find the Limestone cache doesn't exist anymore...(I had printed the paper a few months ago when it was first posted) Arg... caching is fun.. but what a long, tiring day...
Sorry, you can not add yourself to your own ignore list.
