It was a fun day. I didn't try to do all the Battleship caches today but I did a fair number of them in southern Lancaster County. I was the first to find on most of the ones I did, probably because Lancaster County geocachers focused on the suburban areas first. (Or maybe they're still drying out their basements from the recent flood. Yes, Lancaster was hit badly.) I met a bunch of geocachers also going for the Battleship caches. Among them were Cruse000, Dentaldazy, Ka3upe, Weasel 626, and CozmicDK.
At "Spend some time with Stu and Ted", I saw a fuzzy thing within inches of the geocache. At first, I thought it was a dead animal. It didn't smell, so it could have just died. So I carefully retrieved the cache without touching the critter. Then it stirred. So much for that "dead animal" hypothesis; it was just sleeping. Good thing I didn't try to poke it with a stick to see if it was really dead! I put the geocache back next to it and walked away as quietly as possible. Wonder if it was Stu or Ted. :)
The other weird thing I saw was one steer trying to hump another in the field next to "Battleship - H10". Its antics actually distracted me for a bit from the task of looking for the cache. Couldn't get any pictures, unfortunately, because the steer stopped doing that every time I pointed the camera at it. Yes, in rural Lancaster County, the cows are not what they seem. They also apparently have shame.
