I've been trying to find something for the Mrs and I to do together. Having kids seriously affects your ability to relate to one another and you lose a lot of your identity. I got the tri bug last year and have gotten a little of my identity back, which I think has helped me be a better father as well - Plus I now have at least 1 tri-junkie for a daughter.
So we've been trying to find something for my wife to get into, and were hoping it was something we could do together. A few months ago, someone told her about GeoCaching. She got really excited - so did I.
Last night the GPS arrived... The UPS guy who delivered it, awakened me from the nap I was having following 2nd grade field trip to the zoo - but that's another topic.
Following dinner last night, we headed out with 3 caches loaded into the unit. The unit is remarkably accurate...
Cache # 1 was found by the wife at the top of a spruce tree.
Cache # 2 was found by the wife in a metal bracket.
We then decided to try one more before calling it a night...
Cache # 3 was one we tried to find with friends a few weeks back, without success. Knowing now what we were looking for, we returned. It took a few minutes, but I located it in a small spruce tree, right near the bottom.
So last nights results were:
3/3 caches found and a great time had by all, in spite of the weather. I think I know what we'll be doing this weekend!
