As a geocacher, I love high numbers days. Mostly though, I don’t have those. What I really like is the kind of day I had today.
A high memories day.
Really, there was nothing overly special about today. It started out sunny and a little warm, but as the sun sank it got a little cold.
The caches were mostly easy finds, but I had a most outstanding caching partner.
Anytime a grandgirl comes caching with me, the day becomes a high memories day rather than a numbers day. It doesn’t matter if the caches are at spectacular locations or not.
It doesn’t even matter too much if we find all the caches or not, but finding is always better than DNFing.
It matters more to her if we find something other than a log in the cache, and happily, today she got to score a smiley face pin for her shirt. And that was from a micro cache.
What matters more to me is seeing the smiling face of a grandgirl finding something she didn’t expect and getting to spend time with her that I wouldn’t have missed for anything.
Now that is a high memories day. Thanks, geocaching. You have given me that with all five grandgirls.
And for the record, we found 4 and DNF’d 2.
