Last night was a blast! We placed another Geocache. This time, a very difficult one…
Charlie called me in the afternoon. He was headed to the park to take a trip out to “Dead Bum Island”. It’s named that because fo all he knew, he’d get there and find a dead bum!
Well, I start on my way down there and he calls me saying that there was a piece of duct tape covering a hole in the raft. I met him at the boating store where we picked up another raft. We inflated it at the store, and tossed it in the back of Charlie’s Jeep. We realized that the raft was only big enough for one of us to take across, so I was going to go first. We had enough time for me to push out about 5 feet and take a picture when we realized that the raft was deflating. Inspection found a hole in the bottom. Sheesh! So we went back to the boating store. This time, we upgraded. We got the heavier-duty and larger raft. It was perfect. We inflated it and set off to Dead Bum Island!
We quickly found a place to dock on DBI. Laying in the water was a backpack… It is now part of our inventory… We got out of the raft and pulled it to shore. Interestingly enough, there were remains from a campfire there. and a few signs of civilization such as a pillow (or something like one) stuffed onto some tree branches.
We found a place to place our cache and headed back.
It was a really cool experience boating across this small lake to a remote island. Next trip, we camp there overnight!
