Day of Caching


I was able to spend the better part of the day caching with my two kids. They are sufficiently worn out, and will probably sleep pretty good tonight. We went after a few caches on a "man made" island that is actually reclaimed land. I think the entire island is made of garbage, since that's about all that we found. One area had more hobo houses than anything (and a bag full of cans of shaving cream...your guess is as good as mine on that one). We did get to watch some young baseball players, and they were quite good. The coach took a turn at bat, and the pitcher put him down with ease.

All in all, a fun day, and our only find was a "virtual" cache that is right on the end of the Kadena AFB runway.

Well, even though you only landed one, you got to spend a good day with the kids, right? That's always worth its price!

You bet, P.J.! We had a good time, and ate lunch out at Coco Ichibanya (Coco's #1 house of curry). I guess they worked up an appetite, because they cleaned their plates!

which end of the runway? the one near Gate 3 or the highway?

It was the end nearest gate 3. It was near the turnoff that is labeled "Kadena" and there's some large shops and such there. Guess I should have posted a pic facing the other direction as well...
