Geocaching Around Lake Orlången



Spent the afternoon geocaching around Lake Orlången with my daughter. We took a break at a little beach where Signe dug sand and I read (and dug) Heinlein, and another one for shish kebab and a hot dog. Here's some of what we saw thanks to the caches:
  • A freight container graveyard / hibernation site
  • Pond lilies
  • A 19th century windmill
  • The site of a watermill
  • Mysterious plastic-lined ponds in the middle of the Gladö woods
  • The entrance to a radio installation under a mountain
  • A space communications firm with innumerable large satellite dishes whose servos were keening softly in a hi-tech manner
  • A roebuck
  • A cat hunting for voles
  • An Iron Age hillfort with a view (above)
  • A toad crossing the road
On the way home I listened last week's episode of Escape Pod, with a particularly good story by Mur Lafferty: "I Look Forward to Remembering You". It's about time travel and prostitution. Imagine not being very happy with the way your sex life once started out. What if you could send a hot trained professional back in time to do something about it?

Well, none of my geocaching experiences have been as interesting as yours, but I tend to stick to manicured suburban parks around Kansas City, Missouri.

But I see from your blog that you're quite the outdoorsman! Bring your GPS unit next time you go botanisin' and geologisin'.
