We've been seeing a number of plastic ammo cans in the woods as cache containers. In December, Harbor Freight began offering one variety for $4.99 at their stores. I bought two and decided to see if the inside would stay dry during a NE Ohio winter.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do.

It has been about ten years since my first allergic reaction to deet. It was swift and brutal leaving me with a crushing headache. I've been exposed enough times since then to know my body has no tolerance of the chemical. Each encounter has been very bad. On a recent visit to Florida, we found an alternative to Deet-based mosquito repellents in a product called No Natz. It worked well, lasted for a long time before re-application was required and gave me no headaches. :)

We were caching along the Tamiami Trail near sunset when we suddenly being stalked by a drone. It was clearly following us at very close range and there was no one else around. At Ali's request I held back from my desired reaction of taking the drone down with a hefty thrown rock, but still feel the behavior was intrusive. It was on a public trail so there was no question of our trespassing. I hope this isn't some new strange form of stalking. The next time, I will take the privacy invading machine out of existence.

We started our 12th year of geocaching at Hatch Run in Pennsylvania. Phineas the Geobeagle started the new year by slipping his leash at Hatch Run and sending us on a multi-mile chase through the woods and across icy cold streams. shores of Lake Erie. Mound City. It had been years since we last visited. This time there are geocaches there. :) Mammoth Cave in Kentucky. It was a super way to top the trip. South Mountain as the Super Moon rose for the evening.
We found this one somewhere in Ohio. The cache is a locked box.

Everyone who caches has found a container with a small opening and a huge log inside which doesn't want to come out of the container. A cacher owner in SW Ohio has found a solution to retrieving the log without making a mess. The cache owner takes a section of a wide drinking straw like the ones provided for frozen sodas. The cache hider cut a section as long as the width of the log roll and sliced the straw along the length.
