New toy and Geocaching and the 4th of july party….

Yesterday my new toy came that I bought as my birthday gift from my wife and daughter. I got a Garmin GPSMAP 60. It’s a nice little unit. So I went out to find my first cache last night and struck out on it so I moved to another one and couldn’t find that one either. I went back this morning when there were less people around so I could look like a fool by myself..still couldn’t find it.

After playing with the GPSr a little bit at work this afternoon I came home and got Karma and took him to the D&R canal path where there were 4 caches hidden. I found 2 of the 3 I was looking for. I was very proud of myself. I got to the 3rd one and hit a wall…couldn’t figure out where the cache was hidden and the bugs were eating me and Karma alive so we turned around and headed back to the car. We will go back later in the week or wait till after the 4th of July. Karma loved it, he was able to get off the trail and wander the woods with his human. 🙂

So we are getting ready for the party we are having on the 3rd of July. I want to have most of the back yard ready by the end of the weekend and really just have to get the ice and do the food prep on Tuesday. I still have to figure out the sound system since I really ripped it apart during the winter. We have a good number of people coming. The guy I buy my computer stuff from is coming from Arizona for the party as well as the regular crowd.
