Geocaching in Tucson : Aftermath


Written by:

After hours of tromping through the desert, looking for critter caches, there is one more task that I have to do. Pull the long !@!&%! cacti thorns out of my shoes. Those things hurt!

I actually found a sliver of glass too. Where did that come from? I hate when people leave garbage like that in the desert. It could’ve ended up in a rabbit’s paw. That’s just mean.

Then there’s the prickles I have to remove from my vest and sweater. Must have gotten that from scooting under the barbed wire fence. Uh, yeah, about that. What was I supposed to do? The cache was on the other side!

But we found all the caches we meant to find and got a few photos too. I’m tired, my shoes have thorns but I had fun. It was a good day of geocaching.

Also appeared on instagram @cactus_catz although I’ve added a little more here. Note: I’ll be backdating this entry as I am putting all my geocaching instagram posts on Cactus Dreams so am catching up to where I am today. Affiliate disclosures on the bottom.

  1. Better to pull thorns out of your clothing than out of your body! Glad you had fun and got lots of exercise Mary! It’s a “gale”here.

    Yeah I’m still finding prickles on my clothes that went through the laundry. But if we let that stop us we’d never leave the house
