Like I need more to occupy my time. . . Yesterday Anita, Cricket and I hiked Mt. Willard. It was a nice day, but a bit hazy. At the top, we stumbled onto a Letterbox. This is basically like a geocache, but without the high-tech. It seems the hobby has been around the UK sinceContinue reading “New Hobbies”
