After lunch we went out on another search. The first target we chose was a tough one. We decided to park and walk the last half mile or so to get some exercise. It was a grand idea, had it not been for the fence we encountered. We decided to walk back to the Sooby and drive a bit closer. In the meantime, we found another cache called the Tee for Two. It's located near the desert golf course. It's just a small course with five or six holes, but is intriguing in that there's no grass or rough
We decided to get back to our first target, which is called the "Desert Wreck". We found the site easily enough by driving down a dry creek bed. It's interesting to drive in the sand. Sooby did fine and I learned a bit about such travel. Not too slow or you'll bog down, for sure.
The site is an abandoned, wrecked Ford pickup. It's scattered around about a hundred foot circle. Lots of places to hide things exist. We hunted for about a half an hour and finally had to give up. Not good, but we did our best. With more experience, I'm confident that we'll do better. The drive into the desert is exciting and filled with scenery. It was a cloudy day and the pictures reflect that.
We returned to camp where Lynn made pork fried rice, Asian veggies and Chinese Cabbage Salad. A great meal, fully enjoyed!
Wednesday night is Bingo Night in the park. We attended and had a blast. There were only seven players and Lynn, Ol' Lucky, won four of the twelve games
We'll be leaving in the morning to go to joshua Tree National Park, It's a beautiful place, so we've been told and should be interesting.
