This is the first article in a weekly series titled, “TWiG – This Week in Geocaching”. Each week I hope to highlight my personal geocaching treks and comment on anything that I find of interest that’s going on in the world of geocaching (i.e. geocaching related websites, forum posts, blogs, podcasts, etc.).
The first article in the series is subtitled “Getting Back to Caching”. I haven’t been geocaching for months now, since August I think. There are various reasons, none of which have been a lack of desire, but more of a lack of opportunity. Now with the days getting shorter and shorter, the opportunity is even less. Even so, I plan to make opportunities to find a cache or two here or there.
At the top of my list is to drop a travel bug that I’ve had since June. I picked up the Just Foolin’ travel bug with the intention of moving it to its goal this fall, but unfortunately that trip didn’t happen. Although my intentions were good I feel that I must apologize to the owner for holding on to it for so long and not getting it moved along. Hopefully I will get to drop it off at a nearby cache this coming week.
The first recommendation in this series goes to PodCacher.com, home of the PodCacher Podcast, a family friendly weekly podcast devoted to geocaching. The husband and wife hosts, Sonny and Sandy, produce a high quality show full of geocaching goodness. Topics include cache finding, geocoins, travel bugs, GPS reviews, cache gear, containers, geocaching software, tips and tricks, stories from the field, and just about anything else related to geocaching. Surf on over and subscribe to their podcast today.
One of my goals with this series of articles is to help keep me in the caching spirit and to remind me how much fun is involved with geocaching. I always appreciate comments and suggestions, so feel free to leave them here or send me an email. Have a great week and happy caching!
