My son and I were heading out the door for a bike ride this afternoon when I got a new cache notification for a cache near our destination. We hurried over to try for an FTF, but, after more than a half-hour of searching for this 1.5/1.5-star cache, we deciding to give up, and then GlenMart pulled up. We hunted together for another twenty minutes or so, then we all gave up, figuring either the newbie cache owner hadn't actually placed the cache yet, and/or they made a mistake on the puzzle aspect and we were hunting in the wrong location. Yes, we had each seen both scenarios (and worse!) before.
I went home and placed a DNF log, and then received an email from the cache owner telling me, "an error was made" and to go out and try it again. The cache owner had made a simple but huge error in the puzzle, and blamed it on their GPS receiver. No apology, just blame-shifting. So as not to waste another minute on it, I will just say that this cache has made it onto my ignore list. See ya!

Aliex & I went for what was supposed to be a 2-3 hour bike ride in the sunshine, but we got rained out about twenty minutes after I shot this pic near Just for Fun. He hasn't ridden off-road in the rain, and wasn't really dressed for it, so we bailed early and enjoyed a downhill muckfest all the way to the trailhead.
Now he says he can't wait for our next mud ride!
