daily cardio geocache and turkey meat loaf

I’m running on limited power but it looked like I might be able to run the crockpot on LO (75w). I broke out a pound tube of Jennie-O ground turkey and started a meatloaf. Takes about 5hrs.

Locked Gate Cache (GC28568)

Having the crock on autopilot leaves time for other activities. Muffin and I walked up the hill to find a geocache.

We found it fairly quickly. This particular one was in a “bison tube”, a repurposed keyring pill case. These are often difficult to find due to their small size, and because they are often spraypainted with a flat paint to match local conditions.

After the find we walked to the nearby NF signage:

For the curious, the locals say “un-com-PAH-gray”.

The turkey meatloaf turned out good. Good flavor, although the texture is not quite as satisfying as beef. When they cost the same I’ll use beef, and when there’s a big price difference I’ll use turkey.

update: wildfire

On the way back from the geocache yesterday I thought I could see a small plume from a wildfire. It’s the small triagular darker shape in the center of this pic:
