I've already talked about going to the Texas Challenge in March. It's literally half a mile from where I work so how can I not? For those of you who don't know, the "Challenge" part is an event where teams composed of cachers from different regions of the state go find special caches placed for … Continue reading Decisions, Decisions…
So my mind wanders on occasion and now I'm thinking hard. I may or may not be thinking a bit above my weight here, but here goes...
