Hey I resemble that remark. ;-} Now you are not talking about the
San Antonio bootcamp event are you? But really that 500 point token
was WAAS averaged for 3 minutes, 2 separate times, 2 hours a part.
The second time I held my GPS over my head for 3 minutes (I had to
switch arms part way through due to lack of blood).
Now I have to share the 100 point token story (it was not found
either)... When I went back to get a second reading on that one, I
could not find it. I looked all over thinking someone must of saw me
hide it and stole the darn thing. I spent probably 10 minutes
climbing over that rock pile looking for that bright orange token
before I found it. The sad thing was I had a digital picture of the
hiding location in my backpack.
And let's not forget the 200 point token that I placed on a squishy
object under some grass mounds... I can't repeat what I said when I
picked the token back up and tried slide it under a no longer
sleeping snake. Note to self, take off your dark sunglasses when
hiding tokens in the grass. The diamond pattern was very distinct
with the glasses off. It must have been quite a sight to see a 200+
pound man run so fast from a 2 pound snake.
And what can I say about the unfound 400 pointer... I learned of
that native plant hiding idea from Wayne.
I may have to change my name and enter the witness protection
program after the Challenge but for now I go by...
