9:54 am - The first thing I saw this morning to wear was a pair of old shorts. They have some holes in them, but I don't dress to impress when geocaching, so I threw them on.

On my way to this cache, a new problem presented itself - the front button popped off. I tried walking anyway, but it was clear that they were not going to stay on in their current condition without at least a belt.

So at the vista trail junction, I dug through my pack to see what I may have to correct the situation. I came out with the string from a broken lanyard pen and a pocket knife. I used the knife to cut a hole where the button was, and then ran the string through both holes and around a belt loop to secure it. It worked quite well - so well I forgot about it and wore it for a while after I got home! After that it was time to put those old shorts out of their misery.

Now that I've thoroughly bored you, let's talk about the cache. I arrived and couldn't find it before some muggles passed. I think I had passed all of them before because this park lends itself to seeing people on different parts of the loop. Once the coast was clear I started looking again and finally found it with the hint. It turns out I had actuall picked up the cache and put it down again once already. I don't know what sort of animal made all those droppings, but they were pretty gross. Thanks for the cache.
