    Besides a lot of what has already been mentioned.....Cheryl and I like to yard sale while out looking for a cache. One of us also enjoys stopping at Dunkin Donuts for a hot coffee and a chocolate stick.

    It's like a chocolate glazed donut without the hole.

    Chocolate stick: A term used by geo-cachers to note a pile of mud-covered sticks that are in being used to hide a cache.

    I enjoy going with my daughter because it gives us time to talk and be silly. We really enjoyed GCPPEM Strawberry Creek Fairies in Harpswell. Seems every time we talk about geocaching that cache will be mentioned. She made a fairy house and we saw fairies!

    Geocaching brings you to places that you never knew were there which opens up the opportunity to visit again. It could be a great swimming hole, fishing spot, camping opportunity etc... Geocaching could introduce you to a new hobby that you weren't interested in before.

    Geocaching is also a great way to meet others while on the trail or at an event. I have met my truest friends at events and will have them forever now. Can't beat that can you?

    Default Smiling Bob? Dang, where is he?

    My sister is from Vancouver Island and was surprised when I talked about my friends in geocaching and going camping with them. There is a great friendship among the cachers here and one that, I love.

    I like to combine something with my geocaching. It's unusual for me to go out on my own and just cache. I might be looking for a good hike, a bike ride, a social/camping experience with my friends or a kayaking trip. The events are fun. I like the outdoor ones where there is space to move.

    The other thing about geocaching is that we use it to help others. Look at all the times we use this site to reach out to an individual or a group.

    So folks.... it's not always about the numbers....

    While caching today ...I realized another caching benefit. I do a lot of my caching alone, so the peace and quiet gives me the time to do some serious soul searching. Well at least the time to think.

    Sheesh! I'd be afraid of what I'd find! LOL!
