First Out of Town Find

Up to now all the geocaching I have done has been within 20km of home. I’ve checked the Google maps for caches near my parent’s vacation condo in Florida and there are plenty nearby including quite a few at Fort de Soto Park where we usually go to the beach. I haven’t been there in […]

Another New Theme

I kept the last site theme longer than I thought I would try it. It worked pretty well and the short comings I did find I figured I could fix with a few modifications. Then, a couple of weeks ago I found another geocaching site using it just like I did with the original theme. […]

August Update

Despite a variety of commitments and other priorities this time of year, I keep looking for opportunities to slip in a cache here and there. After a month with no caches found, I finally got one. A brief stop at the office on Sunday to do some system maintenance lead to the chance to go […]

Holidays and Giant Hogweed

I had a list of a dozen caches I wanted to find while on holiday for a couple of weeks. That may not sound like many, but with a three year old I find it important to pick ones she will enjoy, so she will want to do more when the opportunity arises. Also, I […]

Micro Stig’s Enzo Ferrari

On Saturday I prepared my second travel bug for release. As its first goal Micro Stig’s Enzo Ferrari has been sent to British Columbia to participate in the Great Canadian Travel Bug Race 2009 -2010. I found the thread about the race at the GroundSpeak forum and thought it could be fun. It was a […]

Not the Airport Hilton

SPOILER WARNING: While I’m careful not to give away too many specifics about a cache, it is always possible I might mention details you don’t want to know. Proceed accordingly. We had great weather on Saturday, June 27, so the whole family headed out to the airport to release my father’s Chandelle travel bug. We […]

Release the Bugs

The weather didn’t cooperate on Saturday as expected. The closest we got to the outdoors was Bass Pro Shops at Vaughan Mills shopping center. The original plan was to give my father his gift Saturday, so we could release his travel bug after a visit to the Warplane Museum at a nearby cache. It got […]

Looking for a Theme

One of the downsides of using freely available WordPress themes is that someone else will be using it too. That’s not so bad if we are talking about different subject matter, but I just stumbled across another geocaching blog using the same theme as I am. I shouldn’t be completely surprised, like me, the author […]

Father’s Day Geocaching

I particularly enjoy finding travel bugs and geocoins in the caches I visit, seeing what their missions are and trying to help them along, seeing the variety of  items with a dog tag attached, and seeing the amazing designs on the geocoins. I figure Father’s Day will be a good time to release one of […]
