Off my lazy ass

Alright, I got off my lazy ass and wrote up a few stories.

First, I did a little Benchmarking. It's an offshoot of geocaching. You can check out the first and second benchmarks I found.

Next, I planted a new geocache called the Big Dreams Cache on Saturday. You can read the story.

After planting the cache, I did a did a little hunting myself on my seventh and eighth geocache finds.

On Fathers Day, I went down to my parents house. My parents handed me a small present to open. I couldn't imagine what it was. I opened it up and it was a new Garmin eTrex Venture. I've was quite surprised. Remember, I've been using a GPS Companion with Michele's Palm.

Me: Wow, thanks.
Mom: You like it?
Me: Um, yes. It's great. But...
Mom: What? You don't like it? You want to take it back? A different color?
Me: No, it's just that I already have a GPS...
Dad: Yah, we know.
Me: Huh?
Dad: We asked Michele what to get you. She said to get you a GPS.
Me: Huh? She knows I have a GPS...
Mom: Do you want to take it back? Wrong color? [etc...]
Dad: Michele said to get you it so she can have her Palm back.
Me: Oh.
Dad: She said ever since you started geocaching her Palm is never in her purse.
Me: I see. A conspiracy!

I'll write more on the new GPS once I get a chance to use it.

Lastly, I wrote up a story on my father's knife obsession. More to come on this topic as I get time.

OK, that's enough content for tonight. It's bed time....
