    Thumbs up I Haven't Started 'Caching Yet, But I...

    reeled in another person to try it out! How cool is this! I went to a doctor's appointment this morning - MY CHOLESTEROL IS 112 WITH NO MEDICATIONS!!! - and my doctor asked me what I do for exercise. Well, I said, "The kids and I are going to start Geocaching soon which involves some hiking." He wanted to know what it was and got all excited! He's a hiker - who hikes up Mt Washington?! - and would love to get HIS kids more involved in it. So, instead of writing my RXes on his pad, he wrote down the Geocaching websites I gave him! And as soon as he walked me to the check-out desk snuck into his office to get a quick look!

    Very cool! Just more proof there are all walks of like in Geocaching!

    If anyone wants to know a testimonial to how Geocaching might improve your health - PM EMSDanel. He doesn't get on these forums often so PM him. He has a story about cholesterol AND blood sugars! Yes, geocaching does promote healthy life styles.

    I just hate the thoughts of the white stuff on the ground!

    We did our first 75 or so caches in the snow. No bugs or ticks or sweety t shrits. And FTF are easier to get. Oh and did I mention puzzle caches with parking coords are much if you dont understand the puzzle. Right Andy.

    I live for the snow.

    I'm not overjoyed about snow coming, but I'm hoping to find ways to keep us busy this season. I know some of the caches are in areas that we could get to easily (in boots). And if not, it's something to look forward to in the spring. We love mud! LOL

    My cholesterol has always been below 100 - currently 84 - with no medication. But if you saw how big I am, you'd know it wasn't geocaching that keeps my cholesterol down! LOL!

    But when I see my doctor, he always asks about geocaching (although he's never shown any interest in geocaching himself), and remarks that he's glad I get SOME exercise.

    Do any of you snowshoe to caches? My kids did that last year - but not for caches - to observe animal winter habitats.

    84!?!

    This will be my first winter of caching but I don't see how it can be much fun following someone's tracks right to a cache. GPS will probably be put away until spring.
