Today was a geocaching day, but we didn't have much success. We set out to search for eight caches, and only found one! I will say that one was kinda fun and made me want to go find more (another day). The one we did find was on an old deserted road near the Penobscot River. The dogs ran all through the woods looking for it, too, but they didn't have the GPS advantage to help them along. When I came to the GPS coordinates in the woods, I found an overturned rubber tub. I almost kept going, then decided to flip the tub over. That's where I found the cache. I screamed when I flipped the tub over because there in front of me was a great big plastic black rat! I put the tub right back over it and yelled to tell Mark I thought I found it. We picked the rat up and underneath there was a large slit. Inside its belly was a pill bottle. A tiny paper was rolled up inside. 12 names were written on the rolled up paper. We added the 13th: kimark. After the dogs enjoyed a swim in the river, we drove on to our next site, a spring. No caches at the spring today.
