Christmas Caching

24 12 2009

Ah…. the rush is over and the holiday is here! What better way to celebrate than by geocaching?

I’ll be in the Bakersfield area today, meeting my sister to exchange presents, then finding a few basic caches before returning south through the Grapevine and over the Tejon Pass. The weather is dry currently in Southern California, so it should be clear and beautiful.

‘Tis the season for snow on the mountains surrounding greater Los Angeles:

‘Tis also the season to be on the lookout for decorations. I think these folks bought out the local stores for their front yard!

(taken on the recent run with OLdweeb)

I was not available to participate, but f00tm0m and the Ventura Kids joined some cachers in San Luis Obispo for the local Christmas parade, and were part of the geocaching float, which was also a geocaching event, of course!

I’ll be geocaching on Christmas day with a few of the locals around the Pasadena area, then heading to Monterey Park for dinner, probably Chinese food as those restaurants tend to be open on the holiday. If anyone cares to join us for all or part of the festivities, just let me know – or just show up! I’ll be logging in live on Twitter and the list will have a public bookmark. (Check GC14XB6 to find that.)

I hope you all have a wonderful, cacheful holiday!

**************************
Luke 2:8-14
8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
