I took a leisurely stroll around the place (and by “leisurely stroll,” I mean drove around the building through the 900% humidity).

There was a war memorial out behind the courthouse and I wish I had walked around it and gotten a closer look, but that would have involved cutting my way through the pea soup around me which, no doubt, would have been pregnant with mosquitoes, waiting for skin such as mine upon which to sup.

Look what I found! Down the road there was a car dealership and behind it was an ammo can! Turns out that the owner of the dealership is the brother of a geocacher and allowed a cache on the property. Very kind of him. I did that which needed to be be done and even left a trackable all the way from Belgium. To be entirely honest, there was a little part of me that was worried about leaving it in a cache in the middle of nowhere in Central Beyond, but I need to let go of that. I’m not the guardian of trackables. I need to let them go where they’re going to go and stop worrying about them. Anyway, I did what needed to be done and then thought about where to get some rest.
