    Default caching kids

    I often take my grandkids caching... AncaZO is 5 and Dragon of AnCAzo is 7. One evening while visiting with their mom on a break from work at an eatery near the Bangor Mall, we we all hanging out in the parking lot out back. I saw AncaZO was checking all the lamp posts. I asked her if she was looking for a cache and she giggled and told me yes. Guess you're never too young to have caching on your mind!

    I can see it now, school evacuated for lunch box bomb threat.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    Why can't we get a government sponsered tick eradication program?

    Have been taking Amara with me since she was a baby. We have learned: Don't let the child teethe on the Etrex! The buttons on the side easily come off (in their mouth). Binkies when child is in a back pack better be thethered - that an mittens. Beware if they are in a sled - they may want to walk on the trail and need snow shoes - but over all - I figure......introduce them young - they may love it.

    No matter what - teach them the rules and make sure they are safe. Cache on - cache happy!

    I laughed when you said that about the etrex as we had that experience when our youngest was 10 months old (he's now three). We fortunately had other helpers to get the stuff that flys out of the backpack as he figured out how to undo tethers very quickly (and was usually more fun then playing with the stuff).

    Yep! He'll eat the rubber seal off an e-Trex too! Isn't it true Jamie? Ha Ha! (Garmin repaired it for free! when I had to send it in for another problem)

    yes its true something about the rubber on an etrex that my boy loves. he had a chunk missing off pats in a matter of seconds. while pat and i were talking about a cache we placed together. even after taking it from him we knew he wanted more.

    I was impressed a year or so ago when I called Garmin and told them I had two etrex's with failing gaskets, they mailed me two and the glue for free. No questions asked.
