Crafting and Creating; Photography and Poetry
I spent last Thursday night setting up and registering the Garmin eTrex Venture GPS unit the boyfriend bought me for Christmas. The Garmin site led me to the OpenCaching site, where I read their beginner’s guide to geocaching. While exploring their maps, I found a cache at the park where I regularly go walking! All excited Friday, I headed out with the coordinates downloaded into the GPS and their app downloaded to my phone.
My first geocaching attempt was a failure. In that I did not find the cache. However, I spent more than an hour out in the fresh air, clambered all over the hillside, got my heart rate up, broke a sweat, and found muscles I had not used in quite some time. I had a ball. And I’m pretty sure I circled the cache several times. Unfortunately, the light and my ankle finally gave up, and I headed down to the lake path to finish my walking.
