Walking Adventure and I are going to be on TV tonight. You can see us talking about geocaching for a whole minute!


Inquiring minds (and not so inquiring) wants to know when & where.


It's supposed to be on tonight at 7:00 PM on PBS. Or you can watch it online at http://www.mptv.org/localshows/around_the_corner/
The bit about geocaching starts at 24:30.

Chris had all kinds of intelligent things to say about geocaching where I just had quick little blurbs that weren't really well thought out. Guess which stuff was cut and which stuff was put in. Shocked Laughing

That's great Jim.

But then what would you expect him to say? "The graft looks like crap, here's my attorney's number". Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Regarding that fun puzzle making site...Pat and I discovered it because of this puzzle south of Madison...

http://coord.info/GC4RJY4

I still need to actually get there and find the cache itself. Pat's been having way too much fun with that program!

I spent hours solving a puzzle on Oahu and then never actually got to the cache when I was there. That one gave partial coordinates with each puzzle, and each puzzle was progressively maddening.

I do a puzzle a day on that website. Good way to keep the brain going but still relaxed.

Now people can quit asking you, "What does the other guy look like?" LOL

What I was afraid she was going to say is, "The graft didn't take, like I told you was a possibility. What did you do to it, go out geocaching in the subzero cold, or something? Now we're going to have to redo the graft and you're going to have to wear a frickin' huge bandage on your nose for another two weeks."

As for jigsaw puzzles... Here's the link to one you can do online. 108 pieces, a photo of Lost Falls in northern Wisconsin that I took when we visited there this past September.

http://www.jigsawplanet.com/?rc=play&pid=2ab650b1c474



Nice picture


Ok it just took me alittle under 10 minutes to put that picture together using 24 pieces. Just remember I also was using my SMALL screened phone. I think I'll put those puzzles together when I use my computer from now on......unless I am extremely bored.


This gave me the idea to try this on my phone.
I tried the Bluff in Autumn full size. That was the most frustrating thing that I've done in ages. Try to drag a piece and the whole puzzle moves across the screen, every time I'd touch a piece the title would appear across the top of the screen.
Half way through and I'd had enough.
I will try again but use the smaller size.

Well I've got one more day to get the fort built so the crappy weather headed our way can create a shell that I'll be able to carve in.
