Sacramento with Dan

Dan needed to file paperwork with a state office in Sacramento, so I went along for the ride. Afterwards, we searched for a few caches in the area (found 7). In particular, we went back to look for Cryptanalysis, and found it after a fairly short search. It really helped that the bushes had been recently pruned.

Passing the time

Karen was scheduled for a surgical biopsy at Kaiser, so I took off on a walking tour to get some Walnut Creek caches. Got as far as Where Has John Gone when she called me to come get her. After carefully examining the x-rays, two radiologists agreed there wasn’t anything to try to biopsy. That was really good news.

New cache closest to home. Geodanimal picked me up for the FTF hunt.

Sebastopol vacation

To celebrate our anniversary (yesterday) we headed up to Sebastopol for a night in a nice bed and breakfast. The first thing we did was park in Santa Rosa and ride our bikes along the Santa Rosa trail almost to Forestville. There were several caches along the trail, but we only stopped to look for a couple, and only found one.

The stay at Casa Carolina was interesting (we were the only guests), but seemed overpriced (although the whole area seems that way). We had a wonderful dinner at Mosaic in Forestville.

A Labor Day hike in Monte Bello OSP

Moss Technology qualifies to fill in one of my unfound DT squares. I solved it a couple of days ago, so when Dan wanted to go caching together today, I suggested we go get it, and then go for a hike in Monte Bello OSP.

Moss Technology was easy to find, but solving it took me some time. I was never really stumped—it just took a while to gather the tools I needed from the internet.

Our hike was probably 6 to 8 miles. We took a rather round-a-bout loop, dropping way down into the canyon and then climbing back up to the ridge line. I think we found about 17 caches in the OSP.

On the way home, after pizza at Applewood in Los Altos, we stopped for two puzzles Dan had solved near 237 and 101. We found on and DNF’d the other (which was a very littered location).
