Post Thanksgiving Hunt

Rather than sit around watching college ball, I decided to get out a find some caches today. I started of with one close to home. It is called "Guiding Light". It was relatively easy as it is located somewhere I have spent lots of time...R.L. Jones Airport. Took a photo of the virtual cache.

The second cache I went for was "Tiny Coin Cache". It is a real cache in that you take something from the cache and leave something behind. I enjoyed this cache as I collect coins. Plus, the view from the cache location was great. It overlooks the Arkansas River. I took several nice photos of the river while I was there.

My next cache today was "Something Smells Fishy" I was not able to look for the cache as there were too many witnesses hanging around the area.

Off I went to locate "Stumped". It was located in a wooded area and required a bit of hiking and bush whacking. It was in a neat, secluded location that took some work to locate. I've included a photo of my GPS at the cache.

Next was "S.E.G. Geoscience Center Cache". It was well hidden and required some walking in the woods. The cache was a bit damp in the ammo can but someone had placed a fresh log. I took a "Travel Bug" and left a 1953 Canadian 5 cent piece.

I then hit the road to find "Bixby Cache #4". I had hoped to be the first to find this one as it was just placed yesterday. After a short search I located it. It had been found earlier in the day by another geocacher. I signed the log and headed out to my next cache.

My next cache for the day was "Oklahoma Lighthouse #7". It was a virtual cache but neat to visit as I didn't know it even existed. See the photo. It is a silo that was transformed into a lighthouse.

My last cashe for the day was "911". It is a memorial dedicated to 09/11/2001. It is a I beam from one of the twin towers of the World Trade Center. Again, I didn't know this existed so I was very pleased to find it. All in all a great day out geocaching. I ended up logging 34.96 miles over one hour and seven minutes.
