Geocaching in Bourbon County, KY

Having recently read Cindy Edwards' blog about

Geocaching, it's a great family thing.

I was, fortunately, well aware of what exactly I was looking at this afternoon.

I took a little by-way side trip today, on my way home from a Carlisle Kentucky area home inspection, to see an old covered bridge I hadn't see before (though I'd passed the directional sign many times.

Kentucky's Disappearing Covered Bridges is the blog I wrote about the Colville Covered Bridge.

However, while poking around the bridge looking at it's architecture, I saw something a ways away that just didn't fit in. See the little white spot at the bottom of the arrow.  Kentucky Colville Covered Bridge GeoCache















Curiosity may have killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back.  So I walked up a little closer to look at it and found a fresh pine board with this sign on it.

I looked over the top of the railing and saw this: Kentucky Colville Covered Bridge GeoCache


So I opened the box, pawed through the stuff that was in there: several pens, the log book, some hard candy, a business card or two, and what appeared to be a hash pipe! 


I snapped a picture of the inside of the box, signed the log book, took a piece of candy (Don't know if I'll eat it or not but hey), left several business cards, closed the box and went my merry way.

Unfortunately, the picture of the inside of the box just didn't turn out, (dark and blurry, dang it).




An interesting By Way for the Day!

As Cindy said:  "If you go to the  site and put in your zip code, you will be surprised at how many treasures there are in your area. And it's FREE.  A fabulous outing to do with children, or adults. When ever we go on vacation, we pull up all the caches in the area and go treasure hunting!"

I think the current owners are a little angry about the thorough inspection you did. They didn't have one done and it cost them $18K.  I, my loan officer and my agent think a home inspection is well worth what I paid.

Thank You for the outstanding job you did on the inspection.  We bought and sold 9 houses and this was the only inspection that was ever done properly.  It was helpful and we will use it to do the repairs with a system, instead of the guess work we usually do.  Thanks again

Howdy and evening to you Erby

that's a mighty cool thing they did by putting that there box at the Colville Covered Bridge. None of the Covered Bridges up in these parts ain't got anything like that.

Have a good one
