I went to Edmonton, Canada last week, and only had time to look for TWO caches, and, yes, I failed to find either of them! Maximum frustration! I spent over an hour on them… and my only lifeline was not available… AAAUGGH!!! I slipped around on the ice under one stairwell only to find out later that it’s not around the stairwell. I wandered up and down three levels of a parking lot only to discover later that I should have followed through on one of my ideas. What a dork I was not to actually PULL on the things… so I went to Canada and came back with NO finds. 2 for 2… how totally embarrassing….
OK, enough of my whining. Let’s get some dialogue going here. What’s the furthest you’ve gone only to DNF? What’s your most frustrating DNF? Let it all out in the comments. I feel your pain.
I did get some great photos of where I was caching though. I was at the West Edmonton Mall, the largest in North America (!) and the 5th largest in the world. It’s ridiculously large. The two caches were on either end, too, over a half a mile apart.
Here are some links to information about it:
This is where we had breakfast:
Part of this fancy food court:
You can go bungee jumping (no thanks!):
You can go swimming…
…or hang out on the beach…
…even when it looks like this outside (it was the first day of “spring” btw):
There’s a giant pirate ship!
It’s complete with pirates!
I actually did go shopping:
The caches were not to be found:
… but it’s all about the adventure, right?
Until next week… happy DNFing! er… caching! 😉
