    I hear a lot of honking in Dorchester. I thought it was a one way system in Poole you didn't like?

    I'm totally oblivious to this geo-caching stuff. But how do you know the cache will still be there? If you find it first are you supposed to leave something in return?

    Oh yeah, and have a great trip.

    I can't decide whether I'm coming down with something or not.

    One time driving to Devon there was a big accident that closed the A31 through the New Forest so we were detoured and in either Bournemouth or Poole there's a perpetual one-way system that took us 3 weeks to escape from.

    Typically, you can track the "status" of a geocache on geocaching.com, people post that it's been found, what condition it's in, if it needs attention...that sort of thing.

    As for whether it will be there or not, you don't actually *take it* when you find it...you put it back exactly as you found it, usually after signing a log of some kind. Some geocaches are in 35mm film canisters and allow for little more than a stub of a pencil and a rolled sheet of paper to sign on...other caches are larger, usually in sealed containers and containing tiny trinkets. The typical protocol is if you take something, you leave something

    Dawn, you're going to need more books. If you're raiding the children's library, might I suggest The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

    I've packed 6 books, the binoculars, and Steven's wetsuit.
