March 20th

First day of Spring

First day I did not have to go back to Carson. I suppose that means it's official now, I am a Fallon resident.

Had breakfast while waiting for nvsrvyr and puzzleman to show up then we headed off to the area locally known as Cache Alley.

But i'll fill in details later on that adventure. Goodnight for now!

March 19th - Moving Day

Today's the day. The final move.

Got everything boxed up last night and woke up early this morning. Just laid in bed a long time thinking, wow, I am really doing it.

Breakfast was delish at Mom & Pops, then we went to grab another UHaul trailer. Went shopping at Office Depot, then Bed Bath and Beyond. Rarely does my girly side come out but ohhhhh decorating!

Today was also the day to bring Kit out. She was not a happy camper riding in her carrier for an hour, then being let loose into a strange house. Oh poor traumatized kitty kat.

Back to Carson for a graduation party. Fun and good times hanging out with former co-workers!

Now I am sitting here in my new house, the living room somewhat organized, and thinking I really should have gone to bed long before 2am.

March 18th

Another morning commute, though I missed a major accident by 15 minutes. Eek

Cache today was down an old dirt road that reminded me of an aged railbed. Followed it after logging the cache until I came to two spots where a birdge was needed and not there. Hurm

After work, unpacked a bit more and headed home to grab Dad then off to Reno for the REI sale. Picked up a pair of Black Diamond poles (tired of killing the Wal-Mart versions) as well as a pump for the bike and gloves for the kayak.

Then to Best Buy where I was flat out lied to THREE TIMES!

1) "Yeah, this cable will transfer pics and stuff." Box: This cable is not designed for data transfer.

2) "This one only prints. The copy button is fake, its the generic faceplate they make. See, its the same on all three models." Box: Print, Scan, Copy, and Fax

3) "The two ink cartridges are cheap so you don't spend a lot on ink." Box: 4 ink cartridges (Replace only what you need!) that average $28.

Attention store employees: It's OK to admit you don't know something, just find the correct answer! Arghh!

Was so irritated at that point that I just wanted to go home. We had a decent snow storm last night, it was low and slow all through Washoe. Came home and packed up the last bits of stuff. Today should do it... I am so tired of not being able to do anything besides drive and work.

March 17th

Still commuting, so still waking up at 5. Soon, soon, I can quit doing this 1 hour 15 minute drive.

Grabbed a cache that was a giant syringe and the rubber had swollen so bad I couldn't get the plunger out! Arghhh I will not break the cache but come on!!

Work was Fab as usual.

Headed home and found a new portion of Old Hwy 50 that I hadn't been on before. Then found two benchmarks, one called Squee even had the intact wooden tripod lying nearby!!

Home for dinner and then off caching with Puzzleman in Reno! Company definitely makes caching better!

Day 55 of my streak, two more and I'll pass Puzzleman's record. Sweet!

Going mobile...

Hurm, wonder if I can get back in this habit if I have the app staring at me from my phone's home page?

Stay tuned!! :-)
