Lunch Time Geocaching in a Holler

Having some fun lunch time geocaching adventures. Whilst going down steep holler hills and almost falling down into a stream another 20 foot drop from that. 

Thank goodness for small trees, just saying. Beautiful area. Now time to get back to work.

Is There More To This Geocaching On A Sign Thing?

Had a conversation not too long ago on the Geocaching Podcast in regards to geocaches are not legally allowed on city owned signs.

This is the first sign that I have found to actually have a statement with penalty.

I still want to clarify if attaching a GeoCache with either magnetic or by some type of strap constitutes a violation.

What are your thoughts?

Geocaching Question - Is It Poison Ivy Or Isn't It?

I was out in Northern Raleigh, NC yesterday and both wife Amy and myself came to some secluded local parks that had poison ivy logs with ranting throughout. Just for giggles and kicks I decided to see what all the hysteria was about and if it was indeed a poison ivy infestation.

Much to my relief the plants in question were completely mis-identified. So I figured it is that time of year again to give a little tutorial about poison ivy and plants that are not poisonous but kind of look like it. At the end there is a really great web page giving even more examples of these plants.

First off let me show you a photo I took from one of several parks in the area that are all covered in this plant. Again many people insisted this was poison ivy.

This is not poison ivy. This is English Ivy.
One of the rules that people go by is "Leaves of Three, let it be". Which if you are very allergic to the oils from certain plants is a good rule to go by. On the other hand you can also miss out of some spectacular scenery if you know what you are looking for. Keep in mind that poison ivy has three separate leaves to a cluster. The English Ivy above has what looks like three leaves or actually five leaves if you look close. Yet it actually is one big leaf with five sides. Not Poison Ivy.

Here is what Poison Ivy actually looks like.


The above picture is actual Eastern Poison Ivy. Note the three separate leaves per cluster, the serrated edge of the leaves and finally no thorns on the stems. Many people confuse wild rasberries as Poison Ivy. Again leaves of three, let them be.

Here is another plant that some people may or may not be allergic to. This is Poison Oak and though not pictured below it's cousin Poison Sumac is also a hazard to some. Note the grouping of leaves.

Poison Oak

Finally here are a few examples of plants that are not poisonous to most people but get mistaken as Poison Ivy.

Box Elder
Box Elder looks very similar to Poison Ivy except for one main distinction. It alternates its clumps of leaves. In other words It has a clump of three leaves and below that it will have a clump of two leaves. Unlike Poison Ivy which always have clumps of three leaves all along the stem.

Virginia Creeper

I thought for years that this was poison ivy. Even though it was leaves of five instead of three. It looked just like Poison Ivy, turns out it is completely harmless and quite stunning to look at.

Okay I hope you enjoyed this little helpful guide of plant like goodness. Here is that link I promised that gives even more information if you are interested.

Wife Amy and the HeadHardHat Get Covert With The Ingress Triangle Resistance

It is always an awesome thing when something fun and completely unexpected happens to your day. That's what happened to Wife Amy and myself when we decided to switch our plans a bit and go to down town Raleigh, North Carolina to test out our Galaxy S5 phones in a very popular and portal rich area. Right at the State Capital in fact.


Headhardhat and Wife Amy

 











We parked in our now usual spot and walked over to the XM rich walkways that surround our state's Capital. In fact there are so many portals it stretches for blocks in all directions.




















As we started dropping resonators like popcorn to a flock of birds something unusual started happening. We both worked together building and taking ownership of portals we noticed that as quick as we were building them they suddenly were going back to neutral white.. HUH?
We already bumped into one Ingress-er but he had just turned level 5 and I doubted he could destroy them so quickly. Then we saw a rather large group of people all staring at their phones.  We thinkst we found the culprits at hand... So we went over to investigate.

Members of the Ingress Triangle
Sure enough, apparently there was a rather large event that was going on in Raleigh today. Involving many Ingress players. Together they were all battling it out for points and bragging rights. Wife Amy and I just happened to stumble into the fray towards the end. 



They were all very kind and understanding when we introduced ourselves much like another world wide group of digital adventurers I know. Not only did we continue to play a long for a while they invited us to join up with the main hive known as the Ingress Triangle Resistance. Which worked great because both Amy and I are part of the Resistance.
















After things started to break up, Wife Amy and I spent several hours afterwards hacking portals, building up new and destroying others as all good Ingress players do. It was fun meeting up with everyone and we both look forward to their next event. It was also a lot of fun playing with Wife Amy as we walked around downtown, laughing and trying to absorb enough XM to keep going. This should be very interesting now playing with a group of people and how quickly we can gain levels.
We shall see.... Viva la Resistance..

You can get more information about this interactive digital activity by going to www.ingress.com.
