compass rose

Wheel of Morality, turn, turn, turn,

tell us the lesson that we should learn.

Well, our geocaching adventure at McCormick's Creek was a bust, generally. It was raining and nasty but our spirits weren't dampened. We split into two teams and went looking for geocaches. Team B (as in, Boys) got within 20' of one, but couldn't find it. Team G (as in, Girls) were beginning to figure their GPS unit's directions out and were on the move, when the unit died. While we were trying to figure that out, I got a phone call from the other team, saying, "Our GPS just died." So, we reconnoitered at the vehicles and returned to the church, where we finished the meeting indoors with hot chocolate.

Plans are to try geocaching again over Christmas break when we go cabin-camping at Maumee. Also on that campout, we'll be making cockades for all the staff at the Winter Rendezvous to wear.

Next week is a busy week for the Venturers. Sunday afternoon, they're making chocolate mice and Santa bears for the UMW Bazaar. Then, there's Market Day the next Thursday. And the Bazaar tops it all off on Friday and Saturday.

Rougher! Tougher! Buffer!
