Under stormy skies, we headed into Texas for some geocaching.
First stop the Canadian Wagon Bridge, next weeks 'My World' pick, so history and more piccies on Tuesday. Whilst I snapped away, the hubster headed into the undergrowth beneath to find a cache. By now it was raining hard and I decided to stay dry! The Hubster however was not deterred, determined to find the next cache despite a soaking! He's a nut but I still love him. It was chucking it down, so time to refuel at the 'Filling Station' in Canadian, a converted Phillips 66 gas station, now a restaurant. The Hubster got to dry out and plan his next assault! So we headed back out into the 'country', down the unpaved roads. The only things out here are canyons, oil drilling sites, tons of Rattlesnakes, alot of surprised cattle and geocachers! After another successful find, we headed to Lake Marvin, where the Hubster headed into the brush and I took photo's again! As I've said before, our hobbies perfectly compliment each other. Due to 'Muggles' we moved on empty handed from Lake Marvin, but not far up the road we stumbled across a picturesque herd of Deer. We were now heading home via GPS across open country, this huge ranch was impressive and in an idyllic rural spot. By now it was dirt roads all the way and the Hubster had no clue where we were, we were just lost in Texas and entirely reliant on our GPS. It had turned into a Texan magical mystery tour! The pretty views kept on coming, I'd live out here if it wasn't for the Rattlesnakes and the unnerving propensity for a tornado to hit homes in the middle of nowhere! This was an inviting sign along our route, but with me in bright colours, we decided against a visit this time out! Finally we hit a highway with signs again and headed home to Okieland with 4 more geocache finds in the bag. Next Saturday we are heading to the World Champion Cow Chip Throw in Beaver, Oklahoma. Now you just know that's going to be an eye-opener for me and result in some interesting piccies!
