We have stopped after ballgames.
Made our more nimble family members climb trees.
We usually make the find. In the past year and three months, with the help of my family and geocaching friends, I have logged 756 finds in 22 states.
My friend, Angela, and I even made a trip in June to Maine to meet a friend of hers. The 12 hour trip to the most northern state took four days. We had no schedule for the entire week of the trip. We stopped where we wanted and did so often to grab a cache or two (or four or six...). We logged 8 different states and 156 finds. We found easy park and grabs (P&Gs) and hunted down an elusive multi-cache.
The scenery was beautiful and the trip was fantastic.
We even made a FTF (First to Find) in New York! Cachers race to be the first to find a new geocache.
With all the fun we have had with this activity,
Scouring the forests,
checking under bridges,
Discovering hidden memorials,
this hobby will last many, many more years!
All who wander are not lost, some are geocaching!
