30th March 2014
So the base hotel has changed.  This really isn’t as big a deal as it sounds, especially as I’ve yet to plan hotels and hire cars.  That needs to be done this week although I am considering moving around the state as geocaching dictates.
It now feels very real and very close and I still have so much to do.  In less than a month I’ll be chasing, in less than three weeks I’ll be caching.
Reading up about the new hotel it sounds pretty lush – a gated apartment complex with facilities.  However, reading up about it, it seems a bit of a dive.  Still, as long as I have a bed, I’m really not big on the luxury.  Whether geocaching or storm chasing I’m going to be slumming it.  All I need is a bed to sleep and somewhere to charge my appliances.
Also noticed that my walking boots were on sale online so picked up another pair that I’ll be taking with me to chase in.  I keep hearing stories about rattlesnakes and thinking how I really don’t want to be bitten by one of those.
