He's Back!!

It's the Geocacher known as "Roadcow"!!

Ed's and Suzanne's visit last Sunday rekindled the spark!  It is all their fault!

Back in the dark ages of 2001 Ed introduced me to a new game called Geocaching.  We entered the zip code for Fort Bragg into the Geocaching.com webpage and discovered there was a geocache hidden somewhere by the Pudding Creek Trestle.  We hopped into their car and set off to find it.  Soon Ed and I were wandering around in the sand looking at our GPS receivers and getting flumoxed when Suzanne said, "Is this it?".

Humble beginnings, friends, humble beginnings but it was a start.  In the ensuing years I sort of lost interest after finding 236 of them but Ed became hooked and has recently found his 3,500th cache!!

Anyway, like I said, Ed and Suzanne rekindled the flame and so this morning I went for a walk in search of one.

And, Bingo!  Here it is!

Well, it wasn't right here :-) but close by!

  1. I found two geocaches during our Big Walk last year - one of which was a particularly tricky one if the lack of entries in the log book was anything to go by (well, it was secreted under a tree stump in a forest). Only thing was that I wasn't using a GPS and wasn't looking for them!
