Or in the immortal words of Yogi Bera: “It’s like déjà vu all over again”.
We finished off our week with Andrew and Owie sleeping over in the Journey and an afternoon out geocaching. It’s amazing the places geocaches can be hidden.
Like under the bolt cover on a parking lot lamp pole.
The boys worked together to get the log back in the container.
Off into the woods to search for then next cache.
Andrew found the next one in the crotch of a tree.
This cache was big enough to contain some trade items. Owie pondered which item to take before replacing it with a bunch of small items we carry.
It was a fun outing, we only had a couple of hours before the boys had to head to a friend’s birthday party. But we were lucky, we found three caches out of the three went went looking for. The boys are getting good at this sport, and love it.
This morning we “pulled chocks” and headed to the J. Strom Thurmond Army Corps of Engineering project where we’ll be volunteering through the end of the year. Because we’re a week earlier than planned, we got a site in the Modoc campground until a site opens up for us in the nearby Volunteer Village campground 1 October.
We have no complaints, a large, shady spot right next to Thurmond Lake.
It has a large patio area,
and even its own stairs and pathway to the water’s edge.
Because the site is so heavily wooded, our rooftop mounted satellite dish couldn’t get a signal, so I put up the portable dish.
I didn’t hold out much hope to get locked onto the satellite through these trees.
But I lucked out. My Align-a-Site came through again and helped me find a hole in the canopy. All the comforts of home and we’ll start our workamping week on Wednesday.
First up is helping the rangers with National Public Lands Day, (this upcoming Saturday), where lots of volunteers all over the country spend the day helping with work projects in our National Parks. In return, the participants get a free t-shirt, lunch and a free one day pass good to be used in any National Park. A nice reward for a day helping keep our nation’s parks clean, neat and preserved for future generations.
We love this workamping job! Not to mention there are still plenty of boundary line pins out there just waiting for us to find them… :c)
