More McShepardSons

Well, do you remember that I hid a new geocache? If not, see McShepardSons on Independence Mountain.

It has not been getting very many visitors. In fact, after almost 3 weeks, it had only been logged as found once on its online log. There were a couple of entries in the paper log in the cache. It seems weird to me that someone would find the cache and not sign online, but maybe that is just me.

Anyway, while hiking up to the top of Independence Mountain, I thought maybe more people would visit the cache if there were more to find on the way up.

As a homebrewer, I have used quite a few White Labs vials. I never know what to do with them after using them. It seems a waste just to throw them out. I always thought that they would make good geocache containers for micro caches. With a little camo-duct tape, they actually do.

And, so, I placed McShepardSons Waypoint 1 and McShepardSons Waypoint 2. Along with a coupld of caches that were already on the trail, there are now 5 geocaches on the way up to McShepardSons on Independence Mountain.

The new caches were published on Friday. So far, one person was attracted to the top with these two new ones. And now, McShepardSons on Independence Mountain has doubled its online logs. Two whole people have visited.

Oh well. I knew that McShepardSons on Independence Mountain would probably not get a whole lot of traffic as it is out-of-the-way. I guess the good news is that it may be less likely to get muggled. We'll see how it goes.

In other news, I have a couple more travel bugs in circulation.

Badlands Traveler is one I am launching with the goal of visiting all 50 states. The likelyhood that it makes it to very many states without getting lost it pretty remote, but we'll see how far it gets.

15 Years Compass is just going out into the world to explore.

Well, that is it on the ESheppy geocaching news. I'll probably let you know how the various bugs do sometime.
