A Good Day For a Duck Event

Weather-wise, it was a good day for ducks. It was foggy, boggy, misty, moist, dark, dreary and cold with an occasional downpour. For me, it was a no-brainer to just stay home and forget about the geocaching event. So off we went anyway, at 8 a.m., and headed for the geocaching poker run. Stopped in at Tim and Susie's to see all of the great things that they have accomplished at their cabin on the Manistee.

From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. we were finding cards on two-tracks way back in the woods. The trails were either really, really sandy or really, really muddy, or had multiple deep potholes filled with water and more water coming down. We were lucky in that most of the times that we got out of the car to go searching, it was merely misting. Tim and Susie know their way around the Grayling area because of snowmobiling and biking there all of the time, so it was good that we were searching together. More than once, I was jealous of their jeep.

Around 3 o'clock we were finished, so we went back to the cabin to dry off and warm up and rehash our adventures.

Then it was time to go to the Duckers' for meet and greet, dinner, raffle, and poker hand reveal. (We had a pair of jacks.) Rain, rain and then some more rain - and then it got chilly too - it was close to 50 when we left for home.

We had very much fun with the DinoDuo and we came home tired and happy.
