Park & Geocaching

We have had a pawsome  weekend - yesterday we went to one of MY other far-away parks called Davidson State Park  (I wonder why it isn't called Reilly Park - note to Mom we need to tell them to change it!)  It was the most beautiful day - only 78 degrees and clear blue skies. First we had to get Moms silly geocaching out of the way and this one was at a cemetery in MY park (who said peeps could go and die in MY park?) The GPS said this headstone was where the the cache was - we couldn't find anything near or within 15 feet around it - so we figured the headstone itself must of been the coordinates. Mom was reading that some times landmarks are the cache. Oh - Mom had lots of trouble with the GPS at this park - it kept telling her they was a lot of magnetic interference and we kept loosing the signal.

After all that walking to find it (yay Mom 'accidently'  took the long way) - we had a bit of rest and checked out MY park. My employess have been very busy putting in new walking trails and making it look very pretty.  Tell the government to give them a raise as they have done a pawsome job Mom. Then went to visit MY lake - just look at how beautiful the day was. Mom said the blue sky reminded her of Australia.

Can you tell what a happy boy I was being at MY park!

Then today we went to MY ordinary park and did some more silly geocaching. Personally I can't see what all the fuss is about but if I get to go walkies I am not going to complain.

Mom got the smarty phone out and off we went following that compass thing.

This cache was called "At the overlook" only it wasn't at the overlook at all - it was tucked way way way back in the bushes and buried under branches. Mom being the intrepid explorer dove in looking for it while Dad stayed on the path. Let me tell you I was NOT happy that Dad wouldn't let me follow Mom and barked barked BARKED when I couldn't see her. I mean to say ----she could have been attacked by a tree rat in there. She finally found it - an old ammo box that was full of goodies. She filled out book and left our "calling cow" then placed it back in it's hiding spot. What a great way to spend a weekend - we are happy :)


  1. Another great job caching Reilly...Your momz is brave like should see the silly places she climbs into sometimes...When you're in a place with a lot of tree cover sometimes your GPS might go a little bonkers...happens in cities with tall buildings too...What's your geocaching handle guys? Momz wants to find you on the GC website

  2. You certainly have a BEAUTIFUL place to go walkies... Don't these temperatures feel SUPER????

  3. It's so nice of you guys to make sure that your Parks are being well taken care of! You can never be too certain that the employees are doing their jobs correctly! ;-) Hm, yeah, we just can't get into the whole geocaching thing, but we love that you get tons of fun walkies out of it!! :-D

  4. A walk and a hunt - yo guys are lucky! Lee and Phod
