Coughin Up a Lung - the Halloween Finale

Spoiler warning. Big warning. If you don't want to know what the end of the Halloween 2008 geocaching series looks like, then don't look. Eryn and I finally collected all the codes from the previous twelve Halloween caches, and took them home and ran the numbers to find the coordinates for the last cache. We were going to go yesterday, but ran out of time before Conner's birthday, so we managed to sneak it in today, if you can call tromping around in the snow and woods for over an hour "sneaking it in".

The cache was well worth the trip. This is what confronted us at the end. A snow-covered coffin. Wonder if anyone's in it? Was it all an elaborate ploy to do away with a fellow geocacher?

There is someone inside! Eryn had the school dog along with her, dressed in his snowsuit. He thought that coffin looked nice and warm. Wait until the kids at school see the scrapbook with Sparkie hanging with his new friend.

Interesting. What's that in his hand?

If we look a little closer, we can see that it's the Dead Man's Hand! I have it on good authority that he's hiding the queen of diamonds in that set.
