  • Conundrum: Wow, with all the rain I've been in as well as flooding in the X on Fat Tire, I have a new issue. Set light blinking rapidly and goes away after restarting the engine. I did a little research and I guess the cruise actuator can get nasty and seems plausible since I went through a puddle on purpose on the right hand side and that made the set light for cruise start flashing again. I'll check it out after the rain stops. lol Have fun and be safe out there everyone.

Geocaching
« on: May 24, 2014, 11:26:27 AM »
So I have to admit. Rosie invited me to go geocaching about a month ago, but I declined. I had never heard of it at that time. Shortly after I looked it up and tried it. I am beyond addicted. I've been doing it for 24 days now, have 97 finds, and have a streak of 22 days straight with a find. Most geocaching is in the city. It is good to find the urban ones to familiarize yourself with the different hiding styles. Then there are the ones out away from the city. These can be challenging. This is where it gets fun though. We all love off-roading and being out with nature. Geocaching allows us to treasure hunt and go wheeling at the same time. Its all about the find. The reward is really nothing but a trinket and a log to sign. Like I said the fun is the hunt. I have even gotten my wife and daughter involved. Check it out and maybe Ill see ya out there. Watch out for muggles (you'll understand if you are a geocacher).

This is a super fun family thing.  We have been geocaching for couple years now.  There was a real fun one we found on the very top of Santan Mountain.  Even found a geo cache medal that had a tracking number on it and found had come from Hawaii

Went out geocaching this morning just like I do most weekends. This morning I spent some time north of the Sun Valley Parkway and 241 Ave. I found 6 cache today and ended up with a flat tire too. I got to use my Hi Lift jack for the first time. The flat ended my morning so I headed to work to patch the tire. Patch is holding and the next geocache awaits. Here are some pics I captured.

The smallest geo we have found so far was a magnet the size of a watch battery that opened and had a small paper for log in it.  Some are really inventive.

Did some geocaching today. Found some neat desert places. Like this old abandoned homestead.

After nearly three months of Geocaching I have found a cache for 52 consecutive days now and found #250 today. I think I have a problem. With this heat its time to start heading up north. Maybe after my Wisconsin trip we can get something going. Maybe a wheeling/ geocache adventure.

Went out and did some geocaching this morning. Found 14 total. The highlight of my morning was coming across a rattle snake. After living here for 19 years this is my first rattler. I was not paying attention and if I didn't hear him rattle I would have walked right over him. So after I nearly shit myself I got back to the geocaching. So I guess I learned a valuable lesson today. When in the desert please pay attention to your surroundings.

Hey Kyle, Wally is also into Geocaching.  He was the guy with the white Tacoma at Fat Tire (used to have a black 2nd Gen X).  He's an old-school AZXC member whose screen name was Onix.
