Geocaching is a hobby that my daughter, Laura, introduced me to. Boy, did she create a monster. Geocachers use handheld GPS units to find things hidden in the woods, in parking lots, on billboards... basically everywhere. You will hear a lot about geocaching through my blogs as it consumes me. Ha! So, I won't dwell on the basics at this time.
I've learned that geocachers are a creative group of people. This creativity shines through in different aspects of the hobby. Some cachers mint beautiful coins, others host over the top gatherings and then some go all out with their hides (the caches they hide). It's the discovery of a unique cache that keeps me, and most cachers, on the trail looking for the next cache.
Last week, I went in search of a cache on a back road in Conway, South Carolina that had been on my list for 2 years. The delay was in part to the remote location of the cache. Now, I wish I had gone sooner. Moreover, I wish this cache were more readily accessible so I could visit more often.
