The Texas Star: Part Two

I said I’d return. And so I did. I almost didn’t. It can sometimes be annoying when people drop needs on you when you have plans. But we love the people we love and caching is never more important than that (most of the time). Accordingly, I ended getting a late start after all that was done. Full disclosure: I slept in pretty late this morning. Had I gotten up at or before sunrise, I would have had more than enough time to perform my other planned activity before going for the rest of the Star. As a minor sidenote, that planned activity was making a hide that I’ve been meaning to make for a long time. And after, I went back to where I previously left off…

Mostly bisons attached to poles, but there was suitable variation to keep things interesting. I went from cache to cache for miles until, as the sun was starting to set, I had found all 27 remaining.

This guy kept giving me the stink eye at one of the caches, but I got away from him. Anyway, I thought that while I was out here, I might as well avenge a couple of DNFs I logged over a year ago, but it was getting dark and I didn’t feel like night caching. But I did grab one on the way back.

I grabbed one last one at this old general store. This would have been a great location to hide one inside of, I think, but then again, I wasn’t going to break into an abandoned building in a small town far from home for a cache, either.

Most importantly, I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that I will not be getting back on the road for the rest of the year. This makes me sad. The good news is that the big show, the Project itself, will resume on New Year’s Day, about a week and a half from now. And not a moment too soon! This has been the longest time I’ve been benched since the Project began, the longest time the site has gone without a new location entry. Even after the accident I wasn’t off the road this long. But in nine days’ time that will become a memory. Soon, my friends, soon…
