Some of the family, along with a neighbor boy, looking for the hidden cache.
Our line-up of bikes and trailers. Cody is fast asleep in the last trailer.
I quit a little early because I thought Cody would wake up and be ready to eat, so I biked home alone along paths through the woods. What a beautiful quiet time. I really enjoyed it and thought I was so far ahead of the rest of them. I barely made it in the house and I heard voices in the garage. I guess I wasn't as fast as I thought.
Geocaching is such a fun activity, especially when coupled with biking or hiking. Once you have a GPS, it's practically a free sport. The initial cost of a GPS is a lot, but I think they're getting cheaper and you don't have to have the most expensive one to do the job! Kent has found over 600 caches, most of them within a 7 mile radius of our house.
Geocaching has other benefits as well. Once it got me out of a speeding ticket that I deserved (although I wasn't meaning to speed)! The officer that stopped me told me that my husband's name was so familiar. He kept insisting that he knew my Kent's name. I assured him that my husband hadn't been in trouble lately. :) He laughed and after he checked things out, asked me if my husband geocached. He then told me to tell Kent that "bald eagle" said hello. I guess that was his geo name. He went on to tell about his outings with his son. I had to say a big "thank you" to him...and to Kent when I got home! :)
