I'm not old enough to drive yet so I've been know to do some dumb things to get to a cache. Once I walked six miles from a bus stop along a busy road on a late winter night while it was snowing heavily. I had packed everything I would need, or so I thought. Got to the giant hollow, thick with trees and bushes, time to get the flashlight, but wait, oh no...forgot to pack that!!! Oh well I'll just call my mom to come pick me up, cell phone battery dead, but I'm a ham operator so I pulled out the radio to make an autopatch call, what are the chances, I wasn't able to get the first two letters of my callsign off before the radio flickered and died. I sat down on a curb in frustration, downed a pepsi, and began the six mile walk back to the bus stop, past 10:00. Finally made it home just before one, after a long wait at the bus stop, and a slow drive home, on a bus with an insane driver.
