I live in northern MN. Tough place to geocache this time of year. If it isn't buried in snow it is iced in and iced shut. Still I took the challenge to find caches monthly.

Original Texas coast born, transplanted to West Texas and traveled E,W,S and N borders the state, and ended up in the middle.There's been a few states that I have visited but always come back to Texas.

Relative newbie to geocaching and absolutely loving it, from Fort Collins Colorado.

in eastern Washington State (PST)

If there is no wind, row.

Learn to let it go when appropriate, learn to breathe deep and slow in a focused manner, keep moving, and seek contentment and happiness.

You are worth having a healthy body!

This is a lifestyle change to be healthy, not a diet and not a sprint to get there.. one day at a time, one pound at a time.. as long as it takes, starting again as often as possible.

Hi, My name is Bob and I am from Freemansburg, PA. I have around 700 caches found to this point and belong to the Lehigh Valley Geocachers. I think I am up around 13 states and 3 countries that I have cached in. I really look forward to interacting with everyone and hopefully getting in better shape through caching and the hiking and biking that I include with it.

Hi everyone! My name is Heather and we are from Metro-Detroit, Michigan. We have been caching for about a year and a half and have a little over 1000 finds to our name now. I had been wanting to get into caching quite a few years back but did not know much about it at the time or how to go about getting started, I also couldn't convince any one to do it along with me. A few years later my brother started caching and so we joined along with him and became quickly addicted. Our 5 year old loves it and our 1.5 year old goes along with the flow. However, with gas prices going up we find ourselves looking forward to caching along rail trails and in parks to save some gas.
Looking forward to getting to know all of you and share caching stories.

Hello everyone!
I was very excited to find a Geo-caching spark team!
I am from the Salt Lake City, Utah area and have been Geo-caching for almost 8 months.

I love to go Geo-caching with my family. It was a great way for me to get my children excited to go on hikes! I love to take a photo of my children by each Geo-cache that they find and post it on our family's Geo-caching website. It is fun for the children and we get a ton of comments from the owners of the Geo-caches about how they like to see photos of the children who find their caches. We keep a running tally on our website on who finds the most Caches. My children love to compete each other for the find.

We love to go to a new park and find all of the Geo-caches on our daily walk.

I am excited to have found this team that involves my families new hobby and excuse to get outside and exercise.

I look forward to meeting all of you.

Brenda

Fantastic! Welcome to the team! Check out the Allegheny Geotrail. I think you are closer to it than I am. My husband and I are on vacation this coming week and we plan to make a bunch of day-trip-hikes to chip away at it. Can't wait!

My name is Christy and I live in Bakersfield CA. I've not actually found anything yet but read a blog from someone on another team and saw a picture she and her husband found their 100th geocache. I immediately looked it up online and am just trying to figure out how to go about starting this!

I'm hoping that by joining this team it will gently push me in the right direction to get started :)

I think this sounds like a great way to get outside and get moving and it really sounds like great fun!

Hey there, I was looking for a geocaching group and here you are! Great!

I'm in Mesa, AZ. I know I shouldn't complain about our weather with all you from up North, but we got over 1/2 of our annual rain total LAST WEEK and more on the way tonight! So we (my husband and I - "Team Caballero") haven't been out caching in a while.

We hit 200 finds on 12/30/09 (a goal achieved) and are ready to keep going.

Hi All!! I live near Calgary, Alberta, Canada and my family is new to geocaching as well. 15 and counting! We spend most weekends at hockey arenas so we geocache on our way to and from! I haven't ventured out for any winter geocaching yet...too much snow and cold for me emoticon

We are NJ cachers as well (The Four Mousketeers). Contrary to what people often believe when they arrive here at Newark Airport, New Jersey is called the Garden State for a reason. I've lived and cached all over the state and I have had the opportunity to enjoy many of those places. Caching does bring you to places that you might not normally see. I can't wait until the weather breaks and I can grab a few. Maybe we'll see you on the trail Starstuff09.

Hello, I live in Kill Devil Hills on North Carolina's Outer Banks. Living here gives me the opportunity to look for caches in a variety of terrains: sand, swamp, woods etc. I usually don't go in the summer (tourist season), but like to get out in the fall and winter.

Yup. Been there, done that! Is this where I tell you about stopping at a gas station to toss my supposedly rechargeable batteries that did not hold the charge to go buy new batteries so I could do the caches! Once I had the batteries I then had to turn around and drive back to the cache! emoticon

thanks BC! and yea i c what ya mean Sci. i really enjoy it. it has brought us to places we would normally just pass by and not give a second thought to. my fiance and i were getting ready for a nice long day of caching yesterday. we packed everything we could think of and set out for 11 caches. yea um we forgot to get batteries for our gps. lol we found 3 caches and then were stuck in the middle of the woods with no gps lol. it took us a while but we found our way out. we were in a huge park and eventually found a map to help us figure out where we were emoticon

Um yeah, I catch your drift. That's why in my original post I stated that we "still had fun though". Lol. I was trying to be encouraging about 19. It seems like a lot to me.

1, 19, 100, or even 1000...it is not about the number of finds is it? Isn't it more about the adventure of trying to find the thing!! I know, it is really frustrating to be searching and searching and not find it but didn't you see interesting things along the way? That is what had drawn me to geocaching the most. The parks I never would have known were there, the sea life I saw while searching for a cache...well okay, the chiggers I picked up in THAT adventure were not the best memory but you catch my drift! emoticon

Hi Starstuff

Welcome to the team!! 19 caches found?! That's great! My husband and I have only found 1 so far. LOL. We tried a couple other ones but couldn't find them. We still had fun though.
Those travel bugs are pretty cool. I think I might order one to send off to a friend in Australia.
See ya around! emoticon emoticon

Yeah, I'm pretty bummed about my knee. I hurt it three and a half weeks ago, and after some initial improvement, it seems to have plateaued. Today I finally saw the doctor, got xrays and and MRI done. I'll know in a couple of days whether I need surgery or not. :( I'm glad that you and your hubby will have coinciding days off again soon. :)

Soooo... Spark Bug is launched! I started another thread about it in the Games and Adventures forum. Here's the link, too, for easy access: www.geocaching.com/track/details.asp

That stinks about your knee. Have you had surgery on it? I have a bad knee, but I'm too chicken to have it scoped or anything.

We haven't been able to get out either. The hubby started a new job and we have different days off now. I should be able to get mine changed to his in a couple weeks, and then we can get back out there!

Sadly, Spark Bug is still in my possession. Bad luck caching today, and my knee is keeping me from being able to walk around at all. :( I had this great dream last night, though, of releasing it from this cache that is at the end of the sea wall in Plymouth, MA, called "Simplicity One."

JESJES, thanks!! We love it here; mountains and the ocean! We'd love to receive a travel bug if you'd like to send it out this way. It'll be interesting to see how long it will take to get here. I think I'm going to order one to send out to Australia. We have a friend living there who would probably be interested in finding it.
Did you do any geocaching on the weekend? We went out to look for two caches and didn't find either of them! We still had fun though; good hike, and it wasn't raining. Oh yeah, that's the one downfall about living on the West Coast of Canada, it rains a lot!
I don't know if I posted this before, but my username on the geocache website is texasholdemlover if anyone wants to stop by there and say hi!

Hey BC Girl -- What a gorgeous part of the world you live in, or so I've seen in pictures. A friend of mine just hiked Black Tusk and the photos she posted were absolutely stunning.

My husband, son and I just started geocaching, too, and we're so hooked.

I'm going to be getting the travel bug I ordered in the mail sometime this week, and then sending it off towards Mary Jo. If you want to be next, just say so. :)

Hey Everyone

I live in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. My husband and our yellow lab make up my geocaching "team". We found our first one yesterday, and now we're hooked.
I'm going to have to read up on the travel bugs. That would be pretty cool if we could send one around to all the members of this team.

Mary Jo,

I have a couple of travel bugs on order and the perfect object to attach. How about I put this in action and send it off to you first? What cache shall I direct the travel bug to? Either post here or Sparkmail me privately.

Who wants it after Mary Jo?

This'll be fun. :)

I'm in southern Massachusetts. Just started geocaching this weekend and had a really fun time getting a workout in at the same tiem.

SCIGEEK, some kind of team travel bug would be a lot of fun. Maybe its goal could be to visit some of us...

Thoughts?

So maybe we need to come up with some kind of "tag" game in the caches themselves. I once went geocaching with my sister down in Florida where she released some travel bugs. A few months later I was back in Florida looking for some caches to find and I found one of the travel bugs she had released, far from where she had released it!

Hi fellow geocachers! Inspired by a Geocaching meeting I'll attend today, I had this idea of asking everybody from our group: WHERE DO YOU LIVE?

So, if someone lives close to you or at the same city, there you go, you can have your own geocaching team!

I live in Boise, Idaho. Anybody there from Idaho???

A great day to everybody!
