Rumor has it there’s a GeoCache box hidden somewhere near the Second Biggest Tree In the Barossa Valley. So Jamie and I decided to drive out and see if we could find it.
I headed left around the tree and Jamie went right. She took about two steps before hollering, “I found it.” It was hidden right at the base of the tree under a couple large pieces of bark and a big, flat stone.
Unlike what we had been told, there was no note inside announcing that this was the Barossa Valley’s biggest tree. Maybe someone read about the results of the world famous Barossa’s Biggest Tree competition and removed it.
But there was a wee notebook inside the plastic GeoCache box. Dozens and dozens of people had signed and dated it. Jamie and I didn’t have any secret code names, so we just wrote “Jim & Jamie, 11-5-20 (or 5-11-20 in America), Texas.”
Then we put the notebook back in the plastic container, covered it with the same bark and stone, and went on our merry way.
I guess we’re now GeoCachers.
