Nice spring type day...time to resume caching (fair weather cacher). Took my grandchildren on this one...they really liked the pokeman stickers. Cach was in good shape after the long winter.

Stopped by here on my way to the Cache for Coffee meet-n-greet event cache in Iowa City. Grabbed Felix the Lucky Cat TB and headed out. Cache container still in dry and well camo'd condition.

Eleventh cache I attempted while down in the Cedar Rapids / Iowa City area today. Found this one around 3:15pm today. Took the Stimpy and United We Stand TBs and left the Alaska or Bust! TB in the cache. Hopefully by leaving it so close to the airport, Alaska Airlines will start flying into Cedar Rapids!!!
Thanks for the cache.

Second of 5 for the day on our way from Waterloo to the Quad Cities for a little mid-week vacation.
Stopped around 12:30, heat was bad but mosquitoes were no where to be found.
We had just pulled into the rest stop when the lawn care crew pulled in and started mowing! Was aweful nice of them to mow the path down for us.

Left Glug the Travel Mug Travel Bug, and O-Whistle the Travel Bug here. Took the wood and metal desk pen holder.

Pass by here every day on the way to work, finally decided to stop. A few cars in the lot so I took the long way to the cache by strolling around and looking at the trees. Cache was in good shape, TNLN.

Rather easy to find, except I was hunting in the dark. There is a nice path at the North end that makes it easy to reach the cache except for the last 100 feet or so. This is one place where being short would really have helped. Container lid is cracked so I placed so the rain/snow would not get inside.

Road Kill was here. A Western New Yorker in Cedar Rapids on business with a weekend to go caching. I had to hit this easy one but found things a little damp. I dried the container out the best I could and swapped out a dollar bill and left my sunglasses and a 6 in 1 game set. Dog A, Skywatch, Tackle box & Cindy's secret were other caches I did this day. Road Kill is Grinning.

It is certainly nice to have all your caches here at Navicache.
