Who are we? We are two wacky artists from either side of the country who have discovered that we are kindred spirits- in fact, elf sisters. We both like to be outdoors and exploring, so we've created the blog to share our adventures!
Note: Here be spoilers. Well, sometimes, but you may find photos or info about the location or description of a cache. You've been warned!

My Geocaching Story

I first started Geocaching 6 or 7 years ago because of a good friend of mine named Erik. His entire family loves to geocache, and they've logged cache's all around the world! I went on some interesting adventures with him looking for caches, including one where we got chased by someone with a flashlight... Um, yeah, he got an earful for that one!

I'm pretty sure I've actually been to more cache's than what I have logged on the web-site, I think there may have been some with Erik I didn't log. And I may not have logged some of my failures with my brothers.

Now the difficult part for me with geocaching begins before we even leave to search for the cache - I don't own a gps! My adventures have been sporadic enough that I haven't ever gotten one (that and a lack of money...) I've always either resorted to hunting with out a gps or borrowing one from some one.

Well, I'm still borrowing a gps, but I'm hoping to make geocaching much more of a regular thing! ( might buy one if I do) I've had some severe health problems over the last two years and as a result I'm way overweight and out of shape. I'm going for walks every day I can, but I figure this is a fun way to go out and get some exercise. I have more motivation and I tend to walk longer when I have a goal other than just "walk through the neighborhood."
