Visiting Barney is my favorite Virtual of all time!

I was down in San Antonio for work back in 2015 and I saw this cache had 300+ favorite points, so I had to give it a try. After reading the directions on how to claim it, I wasn't so sure, but I gave him a call and met him one evening. It was just him and I for 90 minutes and it was an absolute pleasure. He had anecdotes for every toilet seat. He showed me his videos of his time on the Today Show and GMA. He recited poetry to me. He was a hoot and I enjoyed every minute of my visit.

This virtual, to me, epitomizes what caching is all about. Taking me to places and meeting people I never would have met otherwise. This man is a true gentleman and a slice of Americana all in one. If you're ever down that way, visiting Barney is a must!
