Life as a Geocacher

Caching and Reviewing

This is made up of stories from my caching and my reviewing.  It is a collection of those along with comments and thoughts.  Photos, and maps of some adventures and lists of some of the oldest caches.

A night off

Well I decided to take a night off tonight. I was on the way home from work and made the decision to go up into the mountains and take a break with my family.

I got home and grabbed my kids and headed for the hills.  It was nice up Hobble Creek Canyon tonight.  It was a little cool to be without any protection so the girls had coats while I had something a little lighter. 

Hiking with the girls is a slow endeavor.  They take tiny steps and have a habit of tripping over flowers that are growing (or grass). 

We slowly made our way up the mountain.  One tiny little ways at a Time.  The moutain is starting to come to life in the spring.  Tiny blades of grass are along the way. The moss is also a bright green, there has been plenty of moisture this year.

We went for a half mile (or less) and we found a place for a cache that I was dragging up the mountain with us.  I had left my gps, so all I had was my phone, so I made sure to take a picture of the location to help anyone that is actually looking for it.  We looked for something very distinct in case the view was a ways off. The Hills have Eyes

We will be heading up again soon.  Mom scolded us for leaving without her.  I was not sure she would want to come, but I better  remember to throw that option in next time.

I sit here now letting my computer run an anti virus program.  One of the logins is jammed with a Scamware bot.  So I am trying to find it and get it removed.

Wish me luck. Maybe I will work on finshing one of my 5 earthcaches I just have never taken the time to finish.
