On to the next cache near this old radar site, "Norad" as the cache hider called it. Years ago the Air Force had an electronic bombing range (no real bombs) nearby and I assume this may have been one of the tracking radars.
Couldn't find the cache here. Previous cacher stated they couldn't find it either. Must be really well hidden or gone. From cache #2 I could view the area of cache #1.
Now, from this point it would only take me about 15 min to get home, but....I took the long way. 2 hours to get home! giggle. An EXCUSE to ride you know!
So off I go.
Problem with government public land (BLM in this case), is some folks use this land as their own personal dump. This is the downside of this wide open space. I wrote the BLM a couple of months ago offering to help pick up some of the trash if they would pay the cost for dropping it off at the county landfill. I've had no response yet!
Tires and animal carcasses all over the place! Ugly, Ugly sight to see!
Apparently the BLM has a wayside rest stop for us weary travelers.
Well, I make it home and before I get my helmet off, the phone rings. It's my wife. She's been trying to call me for over an hour and asks me where have I been!
I said "Outside"!
P.S. Before I pickup the girls from the school bus stop, I quickly take apart the basketball hoop stand...to make it look like I had accomplished something off my "my do" list!
