Bucket&Boomer Posted September 22, 2010 Share Posted September 22, 2010 One day a few years ago Boomer and i were out testing a polaris UTV, we were in Bullhead AZ and since the UTV was a rental i thought i was smarter than the average bear and would bring along a plug kit in case of a flat tire, well 10 miles into the hills...while exploring an old gold mining area, we were coming out of a mine shaft when we noticed the UTV had a flat tire...AHH-HAA!!!...Bucket to the rescue!! i pull out my plug kit and get ready to plug the tire, (it had a small puncture in it) when a very realistic and horrible thought came to mind....I FORGOT A PUMP !!!! and we are in the middle of nowhere (at first i thought ..well Boomers full of hot air, surely he could blow up a tire) As unbelievable as it may seem.. we stumbled upon a miracle...no, not a pair of high quality jogging shoes for the marathon hike we had ahead of us!! But further up the dry streambed or wash as we call it was a very nice Quad with no one near it, now assuming how well setup this quad was we new the owner had to have a pump we could borrow but he was nowhere in site, well Boomer tracked him down a few hundred yards away curiously looking in one particular spot, well he stopped what he was doing and promptly helped us out with our dilema, after the tire was pumped up and holding air we asked him what he was doing and he said..."Geo-Caching" this was very strange for two gold prospectors to comprehend, that the idea is to go out and find something of no value and then put it back but there must be something to this "Geo-caching thing because this guy says he does it 4-5 times a week...all day...and loves it!!! anyway to make a long story longer we decided to look into the geo-caching craze and found that if we put our own twist to it, that its a blast of fun. And now its a part of our regular routine, and it all started with a flat tire, a super cool guy named Dave and a fun game called "Geo-Caching" and i know Dave reads these forums so i'm hoping he will see this post, Thanks again Dave...You Rock !! sorry we missed you last time and we definitely will be having that steak dinner in december when we roll back up to Bullhead. PS. I have Dave's phone number but just to see how good he really is i figured to make this post a kind of "verbal geo-cache" lets see if he can find this one buried in the forums...good luck Bucket.
