Hi all, I have some news. Been thinking on this for awhile now and decided to stop blogging here at this time. When I made this blog I was planning on selling out all my stuff and home , get an RV and do some traveling. Well since then things have changed (we never know) and I am now going to be living in Florida. I am moving here to help out my 86 yr old dad. He does not want to move back up north and he can't be alone any more. So I am going to move over to my other blog http://redapplejunction.blogspot.com/ and just post everything there. I will still be posting any short trips ( camping I hope) that Maggie and I take, and geocaching along with everything else I post about there. So I hope you will come along over and keep up with Mag and I there. Thanks for looking and commenting on this blog. If and when I do any traveling that amounts to anything I will start this back up again.
see you at http://redapplejunction.blogspot.com/

FOUND BEACH LOOT
GUARD RAIL CACHE
Maggie and I went out and about today. Went to first estate sale, dud, picked over by the time I got there. We then went across the river past Merritt Island to Satellite Beach. That was about 30 mile north of Melbourne Beach where the next estate sale was. We were checking all the things to see and do on the way down the highway. See some Plant City strawberries on the side of the road for sale. Stopped to see about getting a qt. Well they did not sell them by the qt. The the smallest was a 3 pt. for NOW GET THIS!! $13.00. We did not get them! What you got, looked to me about 1 1/2 qt. At the same spot was a thrift shop so I ran in there for a few min. Nice little store, I got a whole big bag of sewing patterns for $1.00. The mostly were from the 70's. Good for my esty store and my art projects. About 1/2 way stopped for lunch had a coupon from Micky'D's got Angus Berger with free med fry and free med drink. We pulled of to one of the public access areas to the ocean and ate. Then took Maggie for her P&P walk , then we headed for the beach. Great day for walking on the beach, but I was only there about 1/2hr as dogs are not allowed on the beach. I found a lot of shells, but could only take a handful because I forgot to take a bag. I also found a fishing lure. Click on the pic's to make them bigger. Then we went to the other two estate sales, and headed home. Nice day.
The cache of the day is one I found this last weekend. So far in Florida the guard rail is far and few between. This is the first one that I have seen and I had to be lead to it via a geocache. From the hints on the web site, I though it should be pretty easy for me to find, as we have tons of them in the north. But didn't find the typical magnet hide. So thought must be one of the bolts.
Just as I was checking them out ....a lady muggler came out of her house and said here it is. As you can see in the pic, it was 1/2 bold , you unscrewed it and it was hallow and the cache was in there. Bummer, I wanted to find it, oh well I will take the smiley anyway.
Thats it for today thanks for looking

CACHE NEAR HOME
THE CACHE WEATHER : In Melbourne FL today cloudy high 74 low this am was 58. Sun to shine later in the day.
What have we been doing? Well Christmas weekend Maggie and I went caching and found five but forgot to take the camara. No pic's. Pretty laid back Christmas just grandpa and me. New years day, some friends of grandpa's came over for dinner.
I did find someone to cut my hair, I was worried about that. Its a chain The Cuttlery, nice young girl, did a good job. Yesterday went to WM got some food, went to Goodwill, found a few things for my art. I can't believe I am living in Florida and living such a boring life. Maggie and I did take our walk to the park seen a dolphin but could not get a pic, everytime I clicked it would be already under the water. Not fast enough.
We went geochaching this last weekend, and found a few. I took the camara this time so I will have someting to post. Also I met a very nice couple geocaching. I was about to leave one I had found when this yellow jeep pulled in. They sat there for awhile and so did I, I figured it had to me cachers, who else would be at this spot. So I got out and walked up to them and ask. The said they were so am I, said to them, they got out and we talked geocache for about 1/2 hr. very nice people, we hope to get together and cache sometime.
The cache of the day is one about 3 mile from home. A hint was read the sign, so I did and seen nothing. A few boys were riding bikes on the way to the water, and one stopped and ask if I was looking for the geocache? Yes I said, so he gave me a hint and I got it. I ask him if he was a cacher he said not yet, but I want to.
All for now thanks for looking
