Branching out and featuring some actual people.  In this case some of the very few shots of Scavengers I got while hanging out with them in Las Vegas during The Great Scavenger Hunt Meetup.

#tgsmu15
I am not normally one for posing photos of people on my blog. In the "noun triangle" of people, place or thing, I fall squarely on the place or thing side. However having spent 4 crazy days with some of the most amazing folks I've had the pleasure of hanging out with, I decided to break out and ...

Obscure history, amazing views, and geocaching smiles.

My 2 hours in Utah turned out to be geocaching perfection.  

Read on to find out what the heck I am talking about.
The last time I was in Las Vegas I took a day trip to check out some of the sights just a little beyond the glitz and glamour. One of these trips brought me just over the state line to Utah - mainly because I have never been to Utah and I wanted to add it to my map. Besides it was only 2 hours ...

Another quick post, this one about spending time with a flock of parrots while walking around the Flamingo in Las Vegas.

#Parrots   #piningforthefjords   #tgsmu15  
At the Flamingo animal habitat, just down from the flamingos and the pelican, was a flock of parrots. These colourful birds were out so tourists could take photos with them - for a fee of course. However since this is one of the few souvenirs we got from Vegas, it seemed like a fun thing to do.

A quick post about the flamingos at the Flamingo.

#tgsmu15   #flamingo  
On the Sunday during The Great Scavenger Hunt meetup, we decided to head down to the strip and check out the scenery. One of then places we ended up was checking out the flamingos at the animal habitat at the (approriately enough) Flamingo casino. The following are a few shots from that ...

When I was in Nevada a couple weeks ago, I had just enough time to check out the start of the E.T. Highway.

This is the story of the experience.
Nevada is home to some great geocaching. One of the most famous power trails in the world. So when I was in Nevada a few weeks ago I took some time out to check out this power trail. I speak, of course, of the E.T. Highway. The E.T. Highway is a 2000+ geocache long trail along a road in Nevada ...

Originally for airmail actually, but there may well have been some other traffic that used them.

Find one in your state (actually looks like none listed in the Carolinas, maybe you can find one and add it to the map - or failing that make one :D):

Another quick post - this one about a jaunty Pelican.

#tgmsu15  #Pelican
While I was at the Flamingo checking out the flamingos, I also came across this jaunty looking fellow. I've always liked pelicans. Not overly sure why - I think its because they are so majestically absurd, kinda like giraffes. I spent a few minutes watching this fellow mug for the camera - at ...

Second post from the Nelson Ghost Town. This one featuring many of the old vehicles found in town, including a crashed plane.

#GhostTown  #Vehicles #tgsmu15
One of the many activities planned for The Great Scavenger Meetup weekend in Las Vegas was a trip to the Nelson Ghost Town. Located about 20 miles south east of Las Vegas in El Dorado Canyon, Nelson was the site of the Techatticup gold mine, which dates back to 1861.

Story
Tagline
Geocacher, explorer, resident alien.
Introduction
It is my lot in life to resemble a cross between Indiana Jones, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, and Chewbacca (what a wookie!)

I am a geocacher, which means that the world is my playground.

I am a proud Canadian who lives in North Carolina, so my writing is full of extra u's, and oddly pronounced 'outs'. I also have an inferiority complex and a penchant for self deprecating humour.
Bragging rights
I can levitate birds. No one cares.
