Cruiser, It just stuck. Anyway I have a wife Tracey, & two daughters
Brittany(14) and Katie(9). They turned me on to this whole Geocaching
thing a few weeks ago while on a camping trip at Gold Lake.
It seems that while we were up there doing volunteer work for the USFS
at the 4x4 campground, one of the USFS people was talking about
finding a geocache in that area. My daughters and wife asked a few
question and they were given the website(geocaching.com) where all the
questions we might have could be answered. Wow what a tremendous site.
To make a short story long, I went on this site and searched for
something close to the house in an area that I was familiar with. I
punched in the lat/long into my Garmin 12cx that I never use but had
cause it was cool, and we went out on the evening of 8/17 and drove up
the road a ways. I was shocked, it put me right on top of it...hey
this is kind of fun! I can get into this. So I got back online and
just had to get a newer GPS. Something I could load maps & waypoints
into. Bought a Magellan Gold with 64 meg sd card & the Mapsend Topo
CD's. Nice unit!
Well yea, it's fun and I'm absolutely hooked! The best thing is the
whole family is hooked! We just got home from a marathon day of
Geocaching. I think we hit over 40 but only found 28. A few were in
places that had way too many people around and then a couple we just
couldn't find at all. We'll keep trying though.
Are you bored yet? I hope not. I wish I would have known about this
sooner because I feel I've missed out on a lot of good potential
family time. We had a blast today. 12 hours in the car with mom and
dad and the kids were still laughing on the way home. Ok I'm ranting
now, I'll shut up. I hope to meet many of you soon. from what I've
read on here you all sound like a really fun group. Happy Caching!
