My husband and I started caching just last year. Heard about this type of acitivity from his co-worker and checked it out on the web. We've been "addicted" ever since! We get out caching whenever we can.
I/We came across this nickname by using an ancient definition of my name, Sylvia aka silva. Latin for,
the forest; or, forest fairy, or woodland nymph....you get the idea...
My "shadow" and I cache together all the time. He operates the GPS while I get to do the best part...THE HUNT! We both enjoy the outdoors and spend a lot of time hunting, fishing or caching! Our dog, Chance, goes caching with us most of the time. She is a brittany spaniel with lots of energy to spend. We also have inherited an older yet smaller size dog who sometimes needs to be carried on longer hunts. With the tick population as it is, we leave them at home rather than spend endless hours removing ticks later in the day!
In the near future, our first granddaughter will be born! YEAH! We're in hopes we can instill this "addiction" of caching as soon as we can get her up and walking; maybe even get her parents into it too. Our grandson is 5 and lives in Hawaii so we don't get to see him much at all.
In the first year of caching, we've only met one other cacher on the trail. At the moment I can't remember their nic...but do remember them being from Belfast. (Will have to look it up later)
Ok,....if you see the shrekmobile (ugly ogre-colored car) BEEP!
We're in it probably geocaching! Hope to see everyone out there on the trails.

Silva, of the forest
Beneath you, feel the Earth.
Above you, feel the Sky.
Around you, feel the presence and the Power
of the Trees!
