Holiday Geocaching

On Christmas Eve, my family all went out for Boba Tea at Boba Loca and then to find a nearby Geocache called Don't Pressure Me. There were 6 of us, and none of us were able to find the cache within about 30 minutes of searching. The day after Christmas, 4 of us decided to try another. My mother found the cache within 5 minutes and was totally excited. Encouraged by our find, we decided to go back to Don't Pressure Me and give it another shot. We found the Don't Pressure Me cache, again within 5 minutes. It was a really clever hide - the cache was inside an old pressure guage. After 2 quick successful finds, my parents were all wound up about Geocaching, and so we set out to find one last one, Mc Kid's Little Bambino. I never would have guessed that my parents would be so excited about Geocaching. We couldn't find Mc Kid's Little Bambino, but my parents didn't want to give up. They searched for almost an hour! I think I know what to get them for Christmas next year.

Here are my current stats on Geocaching.com:

Yes, it can be very fun. For some reason, I always seem to renew my interest in geocaching around the holidays. I have to remember to go geocaching throughout the year and when traveling.

Just curious, how did you, Mike and Barb, find my blog post?

I have some friends that I think I may have gotten interested in geocaching now...

Oh yeah? How did you get them interested?
