So I was trying to sleep but couldn't, so I thought I would look up some cool geocaches I might be interested in going to find. So this post isn't really an adventure story, more of a "dream story." But here at Chazown Trekerz, that's what we're all about. We want to use geocaching to capture the moments, dream big, set goals and go after them. You see, until yesterday, I had no hiking boots. A whole new world of opportunities seems to be open to me now. My old shoes that I would wear caching (because I didn't want to wear my good shoes) have no treads, let alone much sole. So to have hiking boots is just amazing; I can attempt some 5-star terrain caches now (which to my surprise, there are some in Toronto). So I am making a list of caches that I am dreaming of attempting.
Fairly close to me is GC24TNM - 5: the challenge Toronto. There is a lot of different caches that need to be done before we are allowed to attempt this cache, so I am going to be keeping track of what we can do. I already have 2 caches that would qualify for this, however, as team Chazown Trekerz, we only have one, so we have our work cut out for us. My next couple "Dream Caches" however, will definitely help me along the way.
GC23FWT - Just add Ice
We have yet to attempt a 5 star terrain cache. This could be it. 5 stars because in the summer time, you cannot access it by land. You must go by water. We don't own a canoe or Kayak yet, so we may have to wait until it freezes over. I wish I could express to you how much I hate the cold. But for the "Challenge Toronto" we need a 5 star cache, and this looks like it could be our best bet.
GC8CE - Sibthorp
This is where the hiking boots come in. Terrain is 4 star, not five; however it is much further from any main road than "Just add ice." We may have to hike quite a ways. I keep dreaming of doing a 2 day hike into the forest looking for caches and then doing a 2 day hike back, but I don't really know of any opportunities for that to happen in the near future. This one here won't be two days, but it will be a nice hike. Now I know it is like 3 1/2 hours away from Toronto, but we actually have a plan to go to Eagle Lake at the end of October. A woman at our church graciously allows us to use her cottage up there. It's where I finally got into fishing. It's a beautiful spot. What better time to do a few hour hike into the bush than late in the fall. It will be spectacular and I am excited for it.
GCVWKR - The Language of the Trees
So for those that know me really well, I like horticulture. And for those that know me REALLY well, you know I like shrubs and trees best. Weird I know. When I saw a cache that requires knowledge of trees, specifically their identification, I knew I had to do it. Plus we have only ever done one multi-cache, and it was a 2-stage cache. This one is 5 stages; epic.
Those are my main three dream caches right now. So chazown trekerz, we gotta make some time to go after these! Hopefully all those following the blog will be able to read of our adventures soon!!!
Till next time,
