My family loves to geocache!! What? You have never heard of geocaching? Well, it is defined by Geocaching.com as:
Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.
Yeah, so basically we get our GPS, download the coordinates to the “caches,” and go wander around back roads, hiking trails, and forests looking of containers that sometimes hold small trade items and sometimes it just has a log book to sign. We sign the log, trade an item (called swag) with one of equal value (if we choose to) and replace the cache just how we found it, log “found it” (or not) on the Geocaching app on my phone, and head off to the next one… It is a great family activity and it gets you out doing and seeing stuff you normally wouldn’t!!
By The Sea Side
April 14-15, 2012
We have so many hobbies and things we like to do it is always neat when we can incorporate a couple together on an outing.
We were getting close to our 200th find on Geocaching and I wanted to make it a memorable find. We also had taken up “birding” recently and this was migration season. So what do geocaching birders do? They go find a geocache at the Smith-Oaks Bird Sanctuary. My in-laws had been wanting us to come to their beach house for a visit so hubby took the day off and we headed to the ocean a little early so that I could go check out what a birding sanctuary was (and get that geocache!)
We geocached a little on our way down because we still have a couple to find before hitting 200!
Geocaching the Big Thicket
February 26, 2012
We wanted to go geocaching and Village Creek SP has several caches in it. We also love hiking the Sundew Trail and the Kirby Nature Trail and I wanted to put geocaches in the parks. We decided to make a day of it!
First stop was a park we like in Woodville. We walked around a bit before finding a place to hid a cache. While wandering, we noticed some Leaf Cutter Ants. These guys always make me think of:
Proverbs 6:6-8 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.
“Almost Spring” Caching

A beautiful chilly Sunday morning and we hit the road to do some geocaching.
Above were our logs for the day, we hit them in reverse order…

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!
