I have a few that I will always remember. But I think we will always remember "The Womb". As I type this my knees are still scabbed over from it. Not only was it rough on the knees and back, my poor kids were with me. We didn't see all the widows till we were already quite a waysin. We only saw two kinds of spiders. We took time to look and they were brown and black widows. I told them to just stay low and in the middle. Sobbing and shaking in fear my kids went the whole way. The only way they would go is if we didn't kill any spiders. I had no problem moving forward through the webs,even after the second black widow crawled down my face. I was amazed at my kids for not letting fear stop them from their goal, and for still having respect for nature in its home. "The Womb" taught me a lot about my my kids
I first heard of Geocaching five years before I ever did it. It sounded kinda lame. Well, at least the way it was explained to me. Then I got the free app and we gave it a try and were hooked.
I have a delorme pn60. I don't have any maps on it so I usually us it to get me close. If I can't find it I sometimes try with the map on my iPhone. Together it's pretty easy to pinpoint.
We started on the app about 15 months ago. And then joined and really started a couple months after that.
I would say we have gone about 100 times.
My name is Jeff. Married father of two. So far they all still like caching, and we like to do it as a family. I have less than 20 finds without them at least walking with me. Caching has been good for our family.
