"Yes, I love technology... but not as much as..."
When we came to Jordan, I knew there were caches in some of the parks, but this week was the first time I went searching. I downloaded the coordinates for several caches into my eTrex and while we were marching around Petra, kept watch on where we were in relation to them. Sure, enough. We got up to the Monastery and I knew we were close. The instructions mentioned a tent manned by Maria from the Canary Islands and her Bedouin boyfriend, Attallah. I walked in and introduced myself. After some small talk about his family (a newborn kept Maria back in the village) and my quest, he reached back in the tent and said, "You mean this? I didn't know what it was!" I exchanged my travel bug for a nice butterfly coin.
GPS isn't just for finding the next Wendy's! (Altho', I really like Wendy's and wouldn't mind a Baconator right about now...)
