Geocaching

April 23rd, 2006

We had some rain and some snow yesterday, so when we woke up to a beautifully blue sky and nice temperature, we decided to make today an outside day.

Its not exactly a +20 celcius kind of day, so something like frisbee was out of the question, and I’m still working some long shifts at work, so an energy limited activity was desired.

It had been a while since we had done any Geocaching, so we decided to go for it today.

We looked up a cache called Sandy Beach. We had been to this park a couple of times before, so we knew it was a nice place to visit, and well within our current fitness limitations. After we got home, we Logged our visit.

This is a picture of the cache after we found it:

    Someone at work likes to do that. She almost gave up on it because they picked a hard one the first try. It sounds like to much work for me, maybe I will put one in my front yard, and find it all the time šŸ™‚

    Save your money.. I know someone who is probably upgrading his soon šŸ˜‰

    Sometimes on a geocache you’ll hide it when someone is watching, then when you leave they either steal all the items, or the whole darn thing.

    For this reason, its usually undesirable to haul it out or hide it when too many people are around.

    The term is “Geomuggling”

    Hmmm geobombing. Plant land mines around it and use a tripwire. No more geocasher. Wow that is twisted. Like ted Kazinski.

    I imagine I’m one of those individuals that looks at the map when I fix up the cache page. I’ve never had the coordinates away very much, and then it is ordinarily due to tree cover.
