We had rather a to do here on Monday when the city police issued a shelter in place order for the part of town north of the interstate. Someone had found a cylindrical metal container, like a mortar shell, chained to a fence near the Department of Transportation lot where they park the snow plows and road graders. After assessing things, the police determined it was not a bomb, but a container for geocaching. Someone attached it to the fence without getting permission from the DOT to do so.
I like the concept of people getting outside and wandering around searching for hidden objects with their GPS. How fun! It is too bad the north part of town had to be so alarmed about being blown up. My friend the General Mills security guard says they get several reports a year of such unsanctioned containers on the borders of General Mills property.
What are your favorite outdoor activities? Any good scavenger hunt stories?
