What a day! I'm too tired to get into everything, but wanted to mark this day with at least a blog that says that this fine cool Birthday-Eve was one that must go down in the history books as one the most insane ones. Besides the crummy part that occured, I had a blast! There will be more to follow very soon I assure you, but I must get up very early to try again for a trip out to the beach. What a fantastically great day! : D

About a month ago, 3 friends and I went geocaching up on some remote logging roads for the first time a little West of Longview. The air was quite chilly as I ran down the stairs in response to the honking jeep in the parking lot. Excitement and curiousity filled my mind by how far out and remote we would be from civilization along these little treked roads. My roommate, Kyle, and I quickly climbed in the vehicle. I greeted his father, Avery, and brother, Connor, and so our story begins. Who would have known how much adventure waited for us up in those hills.
As we entered through the blue logging gate, I was full of excitement and wonder thinking about what those big hills I see from a distance all the time look like up close. We treked higher and higher until we found the road that lead to the first cache of the day. This initial hiding spot we were headed to was near a very shallow man-made lake. We scavenged ever single inch of old log and lifted up rocks looking for the hide. For over an hour we throughly searched every crevice imaginable to only find a red chewed up dog toy we at first thought could have been the cache. It turned out to be just some sad dog's lost toy.
Standing along the road, I took this picture from one end of the lake.
