September 2013 – A caching way of life
We left on our trip after the Caching breakfast at the end of August. It took about a week to get to Ottawa.
We concentrated on the March of the 104 on our way up and into QC on the TCH.
We then stopped for 3 days of caching on the bike trails across from Quebec City in Levis and saint Nicholas areas. Most of the trails are paved and have a yellow line in the middle. We met lots of bikers, skateboarders, skaters, walkers etc. Great well maintained trails with lots of caches and we got lots of exercise.
In Ottawa we had family functions to attend but we managed to do some puzzles that MA had solved including a geo art of 35 caches in the Gatineau area.
We went out a few times with MA’s brother who we introduced to caching last year. He since had a serious stroke and is now using caching to help motivate him to get out. His name is sugami.
After a week we left Ottawa with 9 days to drive to Disney World. We planned pocket queries of our route along the interstates and planned a detour to get to TN and SC, two states we had not done yet. We stopped for caches at all the rest stops, at our lunch stops and we often did a few hours of caching in the mornings before getting back on the interstates. We arrived in FL a few days early so spent a few days getting caches and walking trails around Jacksonville and Orlando.
We are now in Disney World and we have caching withdrawal because we are staying on site and we got the 7 virtuals here on previous trips.
WE LOVE THE CACHING WAY OF LIFE.
