Adventures in caching

Postby wvhunter on Sat Apr 12, 2014 5:48 pm

Trust your old buddy wvhunter to made a nice easy bike ride to a cache into a cache to remember.
Lets put things in their proper order.
After finding cache easily:

1. Left foot solidly on ground
2. Right foot on slightly raised right pedal
3. Stand up on right foot applying 315 pounds of downward pressure
4. Find out the loose screw I thought was in my head was actually on my bike. You know the screw. The one holding the handle bars.
5. Handle bars pivot to down position.
6. Handle bars shift 2 inches to the left.
7. Bike says, "Hell with this!", ( at least that's what I heard!), and does bucking bronco impression
8. Rider ends up verifying the existence of gravity. (Newton and Einstein correct. It does exist.)
9. Rider has close up examination of downward sloping hillside to his right. (Imagine the sound of thud.)
10. Brush myself off. Look at bike. Fine except for loose screw.
11. Open tool pack. Oops, what tool pack. The one that's in my garage at home on my work bench.
12. Had nice 1.5 mile walk to car. (Tried to ride bike with loose handle bars. HAHAHAHAHA)

PS: 13. Shower then first beer of evening.
Anatomy (n): something everyone has, but which looks better on a girl.

Life would be so much easier if we could just look at the source code.

That sucks. If I had a day like that the first beer would definitely be one of many many more.

wish I could have been there to see that one!

Buffaloes and tigers are one thing, but mustelids are not to be trifled with.
