Got a new tire put on the jeep yesterday. I ordered it site to store and got 1% back through ebates. It's good to be off of the temporary spare. I think every other vehicle I've had has had a full size spare.

I wrapped up April with filling out my days without a find grid in geocaching. June is going to be crazy. Some new cachers in the area really stepped it up as far as tricky hides.

Around last year I got the brilliant idea of working on finding caches on the days without finds. It's been going well so far, I've only missed one day due to illness. I've had to totally change my after work routine. Now I come home, warm up the blazer, throw on some shoes and go to get a find before the sun goes down.

Tomorrow starts a six day streak going into Feburary, I need 21 days to get it done. After that it's fairly clear until May where I need 18 days, and July where I need 21 days. Hopefully by then people will have hidden some new ones around here. I also have two months already full thanks to a couple of times I did month long streaks.

I actually had a weekend! Susan and I went to Athens, OH to do the Athens County Historical Geotrail on Saturday morning, it probably wasn't the most ideal weekend to do it since 3 of the towns were having some kinda event going on. There was a music festival going on in downtown Athens, a Firefighters Festival going on in Amesville, and The Gus Macker 3 on 3 basketball tournament. The caches are all puzzle caches this year, and naturally the clues were all located right were either where the activity was or there wasn't any nearby parking. Despite events going on and getting turned around a few times we managed to get 18 total including all 10 for the trail. We went to Jackie O's for dinner and headed back. I made the mistake of grabbing a Starbucks Doubleshot for the trip back and after getting back home I was awake until about 2 AM.

While waiting on the doubleshot to wear off, I had a beer and worked on logging the finds. I finally did go to sleep and slept pretty good until about 10
