+Old Chorizo Posted March 4, 2009 Share Posted March 4, 2009 (edited) I've had a couple interesting experiences/finds while out caching. The first one was when I first tried geocaching years ago. I was actually out with a buddy bow hunting for deer, but grabbing caches in the area as well. It had been a rainy morning and I ended up getting the truck stuck. After an hour or more of small progress with the truck, we finally get it out and I decide to break for the moment and get lunch/hydrated and rest a few. Out of a stand of oak trees a young man comes down the hill towards us. He introduced himself and inquired about our hunt and commented on getting the truck out of the muddy rut in the trail. This would have not been so odd, if not for the following: He was dressed in black jean pants, boots, a polo style shirt and had a leather, dressy, jacket on. He also had an unscoped bolt-action rifle slung on his back. He spoke with a heavy accent - best I could figure is he was from some East European country. I've known quite a few Bosnians and Croates and it was similar to their accents. What was a young man doing with a rifle, during a bowhunt, in the middle of the woods with no pack, or water, wearing fairly nice clothes? I did not think much of it as my buddy and I talked with him, it was not until an hour or so later when I was sitting on a hill with the binoculars out and had spotted him running up a hill - and appeared to be chasing something I could not see - that made me really wonder. ========= Second thing was just last week - first cache logged under my new username here. We were searching bushes looking for the container when my better half yells "found it" and proceeds to pull a rolled up shirt out of the bushes. She drops it when she realizes its a bit crusted over with some whitish stains on it. A few moments later we found another one. Edited March 4, 2009 by Old Chorizo Quote Link to comment
