July Goals

June started out rainy and gloomy but soon turned very warm! As I mentioned at the beginning of last month, I joined a book club. I was not able to go to the June meeting as I forgot I had a camping trip scheduled. July is the same so the first book club meeting I will be able to go to is August. The book for that month is Life After Life by Kate Atkinson. It’s also my birthday month and the start of some changes to my eating and exercise. More to come on that. Also, I get paid three times this month.

* For the purposes of Geocaching, the notations above are [smileys] logged as found [dnf] did not find [v] virtual [r] retrieved, [d] discovered [v] trackables visited] & [mng] meet n greet.

**I found out this past month that if I have a trackable I will never get rid of I can have it visit all of my caches which will show a map of where I have been. I have a trackable dog tag on my dog and use that one as my personal map of visits.
