Geocaching – The Official Global GPS Cache Hunt Site. Okay, I will admit I am a total Noob. Though I have been on the inside of some finds because I have an ID on the site, I still feel like a Muggle, what the true GeoCachers call the outsiders. Today, though, I am in Vegas because my friend wanted company on the long trip. She will be attending the GeoCoinFest.
Me, I wanted a road-trip and then a chance to veg in the hotel room. The trip, well, the prep for the trip, then the trip nearly killed me. Fibro is worse today. But at least I’m hurting with new scenery. Speaking of the hotel. It is a suite. It has a kitchenette, bedroom, living room, etc. Which was welcome for the two of us on our total lack of incomes. (The trip was a gift to my friend, I am just lucky to be the tag-along.) The gripes are, we had no dishes or liquid dish detergent for the few cups we do have. Even worse was the internet costs $12.99 a day. Luckily, I was able to check and send emails on my cell, but the screen is so small I was bug-eyed within moments. Still, I was able to get an email to my hubby who somehow missed texts telling that we arrived safe and sound.
Back to the Geo-caching. We found a few on the way, and my friend has picked up a few from the con for me to list. Yippee, me! Some parts of me really feel excited about the finds, like finding the golden ticket on the Easter Egg Hunt, but other parts of me think of it as busy work. I can see that it will get me out of the house and won’t cost money. Yes, really, there is something out there that is free and healthy–and fun! AND there is no deadline so I can do this as I can.
Negative? I am sure I will soon find it fun, is registering my finds. Which I must do now while I am thinking of it. Many people are addicted to this so maybe you might be, too? Go check it out. If you are a cacher let me know, be my friend, darscache, teach me or we can learn together. 🙂
