It was a rainy start to the day. We didn't leave till 8am, but even with the time change I woke up at 5 am! Before I realized my mistake I had brewed a nice pot of coffee and I stayed up because it seemed such a shame to waste it. I lots of time to relax before heading out. I was actually reconsidering going out and had phoned once to cancel going, but then I changed my mind and phoned back. What else could I do that day anyways? Might as well help out!

Before and after helping with the boardwalk, I got my ride to stop at this particular place 32km from the Ancient Forest. I really wanted to lay my first geocache there. I went there first to lay it and get a reading, then I returned to get another reading so I could get fairly accurate coordinates for the cache listing. It showed up as close when I wrote up the cache listing, but when it was posted this morning, I noticed that it had moved a bit on the google maps.
I am a bit worried that the readings will lead geocachers astray in the forest. I do know that gps coordinates are never spot on, intentionally, but I do want to lead the cachers somewhat near the cache. Hopefully Google maps are wrong! It's weird though, how it shifted positions from when I submitted the listing to when it was published.
