September 11, 2005, first cache was find me.
There was an article in the Brandon Sun in the fall/summer of 2005
The fact that there are treasures hidden everywhere just waiting for me to find them. It is the perfect family activity.
To date I have cache finds in Manitoba, Alberta, North Dakota, New Mexico, Montana, Arizona
Yes, I was going fishing in Northern Ontario and insisted that my fishing buddies stop and grab a cache (or two).
My 5 year old explains it as the “treasure hunt” or “treasure hunting”
Micro Caches! They drive me crazy but they are addicting.
Someone’s front yard, one in Phoenix AZ, and one in Killarney MB.
It could be any one of the caches that I have taken my kids to find. Kids find caches and they think they have found a million dollars.
Still waiting to find it.
I have my Tupperware container which contains various items to leave in caches.
Garmin E-trex legend.
It isn’t walking in circles in a parking lot; basically I have found most people are too busy to notice me.
I am a beancounter (accountant, CGA)
Dragonfreys registered as geocachers on the same day as I did, the only difference is they appear to live for caching. I don’t even know where to begin when it comes to some of their caches. It would appear that vacations to them is an excuse to go geocaching. Also, Slippery_1, because he has done lots to advance geocaching outside of Winnipeg.
Germany. I have always wanted to travel to Germany and geocaching would give the trip a whole new perspective.
If I read a book I want to learn something so it is non-fiction, always try to learn something new, it doesn’t have to be rocket science.
NO! Definitely not musically talented in any way.
I think I am becoming some sort of gadget nut, ipods, laptops, gps, satellite radio, gps for running(forerunner), heart rate monitor. I have too many AC adaptors!
Is there another use for a GPSr?? Yes, my forerunner for tracking distance/speed when I run.
