SETX Spring Fling

Village Creek State Park, Lumberton, TX - Site #6 - 2 nights.  ~160 miles from home

I headed out for the campground on Friday after getting off work at 3 pm.  I had the camper all loaded up and hooked up to the car on the way to work.  It was about  a 3 hour drive and when I got there the office was already closed for the day. I would just have to pick an open site and check in the next morning.  I met a cacher named MudFrog and he offered to help me get the camper set up.

After everything was up and ready to go, we went over to the Pavillion for the first event. I met a few more cachers from the SETX area. We ended up at the campsite of P.J. Trahan and family.  At 11:00 pm, the new caches posted and we hit the trails.  We found one FTF. We looked for a long time on others with no luck. We found some poker run boxes though. We were on the trails until 1:30 am.

I got up later that morning (which would have been early had we not been up so late already) and hit the trails again in the daylight.  One that we couldn't find had already disappeared and it had been replaced. We found it with a few other cachers.  We saw TheKJun1 on the trail and he was keeping a sharp eye on a snake up in a shrub. One person stayed on snake patrol and the rest of us looked for the cache.  I found it!  FTF for us!  This park has a lot of really nicely kept trails.

I then gathered up all of the GxProxy stuff and headed for the Pvillion for the main event as I was setting out a table for them. There was lots of good food and good sales. I didn't win any door prizes though. :(

The after-event was at P.J.'s campsite again.  Several of us went to find a night cache and a letterbox hybrid - my favorite!

Sunday morning, I picked up a real letterbox (not a geocache) and the TPWD Parks Challenge cache and then loaded up to head home.  I stopped on the way home to add another virtual cache on Opencaching.US.

This was the event of the chiggers!  Everyone is itching and miserable.

Things I Have Learned About OneNote

I have spent a couple of years looking for that planner peace and have not been able to stick with any certain planner for more than a couple of months. Either the planner is too bulky to carry around or it's too small to fit all the info (and my ever-growing sticker collection) or it doesn't allow me to easily add extra pages, etc. So, I have been working in Microsoft OneNote to create a dynamic Digital Bullet Journal and I have learned several things along the way.  #digibujo  
I will share some things with you that I have figured out with trial and error that might save you some hassle. This info applies to OneNote in general, so even if you don't plan or journal, stick with me.
First and foremost, OneNote has several versions.  Each will look different and have various functions.  The most robust and feature-rich is the OneNote 2016 program for the desktop. Then there's the OneNote "app" for Windows 10. It does not have all the functions of the 2016 progr…

Getting My House In Order

I'll be the first one to confess that I am NOT the world's best housekeeper. I have been a single mom of my 18-year old "baby" since he was just a couple of months old and it hasn't always been easy. As a matter of fact, I think the toddler was more tidy than the teenager. He has a habit of opening cabinets and not closing them, dropping things on the floor wherever he happens to be, leaving items on the counter and so on. After lots of arguments and not making much headway, I decided to pick my battles and let him do his thing in his own room. Then a few things made their way to the living room and little by little, you get used to things being out. And yes, I got lazy and didn't feel like messing with it.  Then one day I looked around and thought that if someone happened to pop in unannounced, I would be totally embarrassed. So, something had to give.

There are as many methods of cleaning and decluttering as there are ways to make a mess.  I have looked thro…

Rideshare in B/CS

It's official!  I'm now also a driver for Uber. Here's hoping the two programs overlap nicely.
