My Most Brainless Act While Geocaching in General geocaching topics Posted March 30, 2011 It was early April, and I needed to get out caching, so I took the day off work just to get out in the sun and cache. I had a DNF on this one in the fall, and just wanted to clear it off my list. I gingerly climbed down the rather steep slope towards the lake. I looked for a few minutes around the old crab apple tree, but didn't see anything, so I decided to move down a little farther and look back up the hill to the back side of the tree. Well I learned something that fine morning. I learned that early morning dew, poison ivy, and tennis shoes just don't mix. Quick as a flash I was face first ear deep in poison ivy. I got up only to have to rummage around in the stuff to find my walking stick. I found it, along with my car keys, stood up and just smiled. There was this old lady looking down the hill with a quizzical look on her face, and no kidding, she said to me, "Sonny I'm not positive, but I think thats poison ivy your swimming around in." Quick as a flash I told her, "Yep, I hadn't gotten any yet this year." As her and her husband walked away I found the cache, got the smiley, and after all that I never got one itch.
