Just before dawn I made it here. This one was quite the building. Reminds me of some of the old governmental buildings in London. Man, do I wish I was doing this the last time I was there. Then again, that was a long time ago and I’m not sure urban caching was quite as much of a thing back then.
There was a cache on the square, across the street from the courthouse, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to grab it. It was in the central library and there was no way I was going to wait until it opened. I had too many things to do to wait until it opened, to many counties to get to. Heck, I probably hit three counties before it opened. It didn’t matter anyway. I had already gotten my requisite cache on the way into town.
I don’t usually like home caches for obvious reasons, but this one was out in the open on the front stoop and didn’t make me look like I was trying to case the place. And, as you can imagine, there were toys! I ended up taking a couple of trackables, wooden boxes containing shells and trackable info. Clever idea. I may employ it in the near future myself. Cheap boxes with little clasps. Put some swag in a box and, as it passes from person to person, they grab the contents and replace it with something of their own before sending it on. That might work.
But once I got done downtown, it was time to move. I got to driving and I headed for…my first encounter with the DPS. So I’m driving out of town when I see some disco lights in the rear view. Took me a second to get that they were for me. I pulled over and the trooper came to chat. He told me that he pulled me over for going three miles over the speed limit.
Wait… What? Three? Three?!? Really? I actually told him that I had just passed another car so maybe I didn’t slow down enough, but three? He gave me a warning. How kind… I got back on my way on down the road and soon I arrived in…
