My daughter, Vidia, bought this for me. I also got gas, coffee and food cards for the road trips. Modeled by geo-hound Freddie!

Did anyone else pick up a nice caching gift?

I got a new computer! Try and remember how much fun it is reloading all your software and data.

Also got a Nuvi for the vehicle.

Merry belated Christmas to everyone! :)

Santa brought us new PFDs for kayaking. The neoprene waterski vests just weren't cutting it for hydro caching. Last summer we enjoyed "Get Marooned" GC14DW4

One of my fav's was the family stocking exchange. My stocking came in the shape of a .30 cal ammo can, with 'geocache' spraypainted all over it. Plus a couple of geocoins and accessories. I want spring!!! :cool:

I must say Santa was a bit funny this year.

I got an inflatable kayak. No vests, no paddle, no pump. I wonder what that means. This is the second one I received, but this one is bigger.

I also got some coins, so I can trade now.

The most important supplies I received to get me through the hard finds was a box of cigars.

OK - so I think I know you - and think you will be ok with this post.......:confused: But if not - like take this all in jest!

"I got an inflatable kayak. No vests, no paddle, no pump. I wonder what that means. This is the second one I received, but this one is bigger." Does this mean someone thinks you have grown.....and does not want you to inflate your boat.....or have a life vest should you sink? Heavens - the message here is very scary! Who were the gifters? Co-Workers or family??? :eek: LOL

You got coins - now you can trade........maybe just activate them an bring them to events for discovery.......:)...safer and they may not disappear ;)...seems like it might be a safer bet than going out in that kayak to seek out a cache! :D

Anyway, cache on - cache happy! :D:D Happy New Year my friend!

I can set you up with a supplier. I had one for several years after my divorce. I filled it up with water and froze it; it was just like being married! :D


Of course I got rid of it after re-marrying. Not that she is a replacement for a frozen doll. Hmmm, how do I talk my way out of this one?.?.?. :rolleyes:

Jewelry, Flowers, Chocolate, and begging.


In that order!:rolleyes:;):p:D

My secretaries bought me a bunch of cache containers. I put five of them out yesterday while Di and I headed to Camden for lunch. They were just published.

Santa brought me gaitors so it looks like the enthusiasm for winter caching has not waned.

Santa also brought me a cortisone injection for my knee so I can once again do caches with terrain ratings above "1.5."

Life is good! Happy New Year everybody!:)

Next year ask Santa to fix the knee. Those shots can allow you to make things worse, if your not careful.

You probably already know that.

Actually, I got a new office chair that I'm now sitting in...in front of the computer. Who would have imagined that I spend so much time here that I would wear right through my old one? Gee.....anyone else in the same situation?

Well my spot on the couch is worn out from sitting there with the laptop! LOL

I think I can say I probably spend more time on the web then anyone here. I am not bragging because there are many many times I wish I did not have to spend all that time on the web. But you know what they say, "it comes with the territory".

I can however say that I have never worn a hole in this chair I sit in. What are you doing in that chair that causes you to wear a hole in it? or maybe I don't want to know.

I have gone through 3 or 4 computer chairs. A lot of it is not sitting still and I am constantly getting up for something and coming back and sitting down. And I do spend a fair amount of time her as well doing one thing or another. It seems all of my hobbies require it!

Another issue is most chairs are probably designed for an average person, and in that regard I am a bit above average!
