Spring? Summer? Let's go caching

What season is it? What defines your seasons? Our personal view of the seasons doesn’t necessarily follow the logic of the calendar, or the weather. But on other factors. Here in the US the Opening Day starts the Baseball season, and it’s the highlight of…

There used to be a lot more houses on the south side of Route 28. They tore them all down a few years ago due to the Potomac flooding.

Get Outdoors and do it.
Introduction
Photography, Sea Kayaking, Bicycling and Geocaching are among my top activities. See my Geocaching profile. All that and in my spare time I spend time at the lathe working on old pieces of wood, I guess that makes me a woodturner. And a sometimes ham radio operator - now W9QBJ, the call my late uncle used for many years, I've held the call W3CCV since the mid 1950's

A dear friend and I were in Satiago and asked our host to recommend a restaurant with native good food. This was his choice. We did not order from the menu, our host negotiated with the waiter for our dinner. This was the best way to go. in a way we had no idea what we were about to partake of, but it was explained to us. I definitely would eat here again if I return to Santiago. The sound level; was low enough for us to talk, the waiter was ready to answer questions - which had to be relayed through our host as we spoke no Spanish. As we understood it, the restaurant is about 50 years old, and the waiter has been serving there for about 25 years.
