dasheight100 Posted September 6, 2003 Share Posted September 6, 2003 Okay, I was out looking for an easy 1/1 geocache today in a local park. Found it no problem, about 30 feet off the trail, hidden in the crook of a tree right where the clue said it would be. I wedge my GPS into a crook in the tree, pull the ammo box out, and lay it on the ground. Oh look, there's a bee. I feel a sting on my neck. Uh oh, there's another. Holy $#%@, there's a freaking swarm of them. I start swatting with my hat, and it goes flying off into the woods. I beat feet outta there, doing the "holy crap, I'm covered in bee's! dance". I stop about 50 feet away, swatting the last of them off, waiting for an alergic reaction to overcome me. Nothing. Good. I've gotten stung before and felt a little woozy. I cautiously reapproach the cache site. The bees are now swarming all over the cache, laying on the ground. I'll be #$%^#'ed if I'm gonna leave my GPS in the woods! I quick snatch it up, and turn to retreat again, swatting the whole way. No new stings, but I'm thoroughly humbled. My hat is still laying back there, hanging in the brambles, along with the abandoned cache. Nature is a Mother! Quote Link to comment
