Long story short I thought this was going to be a really easy park and grab and it turned out being one of my longer recent hikes which actually took me around said parking lot, over a busy street bridge, down to a greenway and then the .20 mile hike to where the geocache actually was. The find itself only took about ten minutes but whilest the searching continued the sound of oncoming thunder grabbed my attention. It was one of those times in the woods where it was so still you could hear the rain coming and I had a bit of a hike before I was going to be back in my cachemobile. Oh Goodie!
As I hastily finished signing the log and placed it back into it's geocache host the rain started. It was just sprinkles but the drops were large and I knew if I didn't get to my car soon I was going to have a very moist afternoon at work. So on I trodded down the greenway. Fortunately for me the rain suddenly halted and I did make it to my car in resonably good fashon. In fact it was not long after that the deluge hit and I was very grateful for the timing of this rain cloud.
This little lesson taught me that the quickest route to a geocache is sometimes not the plausable one and even though the sky does not look threatning at the time an unexpected storm can always hit us unaware. The best thing to do is be prepared though sometimes things just happen. Enjoy the experience and have fun geocaching anyways. At the very least it makes a great story.
Until tomorrows geocaching adventure.
