San Augustine Park
January 30, 2012
Hiking and geocaching, yes that is what we do in the cool months. So here we are again this time at San Augustine Park…
and we had a picnic breakfast under the group shelter.
I loved on my wonderful son. Really is had nothing to do with me freezing because it was brisk that day and I was without my jacket!

Like with any “sport” when you make milestones you must make it memorable. It is no different with Geocaching. We were nearing our 100th find marker and wanted to try to hit it on something special. I have been looking at one called Teran which was suppose to be a historical location of the Old Fort Teran.
I plotted our course to end at Teran at precisely the 100th find. This could be tricky if we ended up not finding enough caches before we got to Teran so I made sure we had enough to spare a few DNF (Did Not Finds).
Our first stop on our adventure was at Mt Hope cemetery. It had a nice mausoleum for the Masons here. We all peeked in the windows.
Caching During a Drought
January 15, 2012
As with any tradition, it begins as an action repeated until it becomes expected. And so it seems picnics have become a tradition anytime we go caching.
We had a cache to find in this road side park but I didn’t even look at where it was suppose to be until we had all eaten. If they had been distracted they would have never finished their lunch! By Yahweh’s grace we had parked at the table that was closest to the cache!

Ever since we had started geocaching we had yet to go with out the kids. This time we made a date of it. The kids had stayed the night with my sister and so we took advantage of some alone time to actually get to geocache and be the ones to find the caches. Normally, I guess we are too old and slow to make it to the caches before the children!
The first cache on our list was one called the Catahoula Boulders.
Cache a Zoo
January 8, 2012
I was looking around on the map for some place to go geocaching and I spotted that the local zoo had a handful of them placed strategically around it’s property. The kids always love going to the zoo so it was a double blessing to have caches there. I was somewhat worried that maybe it would be hard to hunt them without being noticed with so many people around but I was ready with my geocaching pamphlet in hand if questioned.
Group pics are a must where ever we go… well most of the group. We parents are not to keen on being in the pictures.
