So, Sunday we start to sort of head home. but I think I keep finding myself in Tennesse despite the hours of driving.

From Rio to FTF

It's always a good day of caching when you have Rio & a FTF....although today we did it a little backwards. Usually we eat last.

Nothing like a little warm caching in the snow. When Spring jumped up for a short interval, we headed out North to grab some caches

Caching North of the Line
