Geocaching, cold water and You Tube

September 2, 2008 - Cindy Votruba
On Saturday afternoon, I went on a little geocache hunt with a couple from Cottonwood. The husband and wife team said they've gotten to the point where they have their GPS system with them when they're going someplace. Once they get close to the 80 or so odd geocaches hidden in Marshall, one or both of their GPS systems will twitter. It's the excitement of the hunt that has Mark and Tori McClain on the lookout for containers that can be small as a pinky fingernail or big as a Tupperware bowl and filled with such goodies as pencils, erasers, little toys or even earrings. The McClains have climbed trees, looked under lamp post bases in the mall parking lot and even at an old jail cell in Sherman, South Dakota for geocaches. It does look like a lot of fun. Maybe someday down the road... I decided to head out to Camden State Park to go swimming on Sunday. It was hot enough outside, but the water temperature itself was something left to be desired. I wade in a little bit and I can't feel my lower extremities. Others tried venturing out, but few gutsy souls stayed in the water for more than 5 minutes. I'm featured in a couple of videos posted on You Tube. The videos have to do with Adults With Congenital Heart Disease Association. I was briefly interviewed about my heart defect and then what ACHA means to me at the national conference in Philadelphia this May. I'm only on for a brief second, so watch carefully. Go to the You Tube Web site, put in ACHA or Adults With Congenital Heart Disease Association as search terms. I'd put in another filter as to latest date posted. Hopefully it will be OK to find.
