We had a great time attending the GOTCHA event today. There were tons of prizes, including a very special Team Alamo coin. I’m very disappointed to not win that.
It was hot and humid today.. It’s never a good thing when you wake up to thick fog and temperatures in the 70’s in summer. Topped out with highs in the low to mid 90s with dewpoints near 80. Not fun.
After the event was winding down Lynn twisted our arms to go for a couple of caches and get ice cream in Carlisle.
The first cache was a huge relief. It wasn’t easy and if the owner weren’t there I don’t think we’d have found it. It was a fun challenge. After feeling dizzy and over heated the past few hours I couldn’t begin to gell you how good that cool water felt!
After that we headed over towards Shippensburg to do one near the AT. It was a short walk, less than 400 feet actually. That was probably a good thing. The heat was still high and there was thunder starting to rumble all around.
I think we got out of there at the right time. On our way up 81 we were seeing tons of lightning to the east and near Carlisle we caught up with the storm. We got in to Carlisle to go to the ice cream place but that didn’t work out so well. The theme of that trip was turn around, the road is blocked by a tree. I don’t remember how many but at least 4 roads we tried were blocked. We did get pictures but they’re not downloaded off the camera yet so I’ll have to post pictures later.
