October 2018 Geocacher Profile

Oct 01, 2018 - 7:42 AM - by Flyfishingcachers
The Membership Relations Committee is happy to showcase some ArkGeo Geocachers through the "Geocacher Profile". The committee thought Kimberly5775 aka Kimberly Pridmore should be the next cacher to be in the spotlight.

What is your geocaching name?
Kimberly5775

How did you choose your handle?
I have been using Kimberly5775 as part of my email since high school, so it was the first thing I thought to use. Kimberly, of course, is my first name. The 5775 was the last 4 digits of a phone number from a boyfriend I had in high school...funny I still use it today lol!!!


How long have you been geocaching?
I started Geocaching July 12, 2016, so a little over 2 years now.


How did you find your first Geocache, and which one was it?
I downloaded the Geocaching app on my IPhone and saw there was one close to my house. I loaded the boys in the car and down the road we went. The cache was GC1Z21A, 124 Welcome to Conway County, hidden by Ar-Hick. I didn't know what a baby coke bottle was, so it took me forever to find it because I was picking up all the soda bottle litter that was around! HA HA!!! But I was hooked after that! We drove around that day grabbing the other close ones!


Who usually goes with you when you go caching?
It depends on who is working and what kind of geocaching trip it will be, but the usual suspects are my husband John, my two boys Layne and Kash, my niece Chloe, and my mom Kay.


How long will you work on puzzle caches before you give up?
I usually give up pretty quick, but then that bugs me. I may come back and try to figure it out, but some I just have no clue on how to start.


What town/areas have you most enjoyed caching in?
I have very much enjoyed finding the state park caches. I also like to cache in old/historical places where I can learn something or see something I may not have ever seen otherwise.


Do you do paperless caching?

Yes

What kind of geocaching rig do you use?
If its just me, or me and the boys, we are in my Charger. If my husband is able to take us, we are in his Duramax. If my mom drives me, we are in her Jeep.


Why would you recommend anyone else to take up geocaching?
It is a great way to spend time with family or friends, while getting some exercise! It is also good for mental health. I suffered with depression after having Kash in February 2016. I was taking meds daily, but I always felt down still and just blah. Once I got out and about with Geocaching, I was able to get off my antidepressants and I started having something to look forward to with my little geocaching trips with the kids and my husband or mom. The people I have met while geocaching have been so welcoming also! Thanks Yall!!


Where are you originally from?
Jerusalem, AR and still here.


In what states have you geocached?
Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and Louisiana.


What was your first event ever attended?
A GIFF Event in 2016, held in Russellville, AR, by Old River Runner.


How many caches have you found?
1,070


Which type of cache container do you prefer over the rest?
I love Ammo Cans! And its great when there is plenty of swag for the kids to trade!


What was the most famous cache that you have found?
I guess that would be GC1B, Gorilla Stash.


Do you use disposable batteries or rechargeable batteries?
Rechargeable


Do you enjoy hiding or finding more as your part of the hobby?
I enjoy both! I love seeing new areas when finding caches, and I love seeing how unique some caches are. It amazes me the work that goes into some caches. As for hiding caches, I like thinking about cachers' reactions when they find my caches, and I can't wait to read about their experiences!


Do you have a personal goal in mind when you make a hide?
The goal I had with my first few hides was just to get some caches in my area. I then had the goal of showing people an area they normally wouldn't see. And with one or two of my caches, my goal was to make the cacher laugh, or at least smile about the hide!


What is your favorite type of cache hide?
I like a good sneaky hide!


Out of all your hides, what are your personal favorites that you take pride in?
I try to make all of my hides different from each other so a cacher can't say oh that looks like a "Kimberly" hide. But I am guilty of being a copy cat hider. When I see a cache I really like, I hide one like it around here. My top ones of mine that I am proud of are "Ode to Branson", GC74VFP, (a "water" hide that I took the idea from one I found in Branson), "Seymore at the Pit", GC797F0, (a "slithery" idea I got from one I found in Russellville), and "The Old Jerusalem Schoolhouse", GC74M88, (a kinda sneaky hide that I have seen more than a few times, and the fact that it is hidden at the old schoolhouse in my small town).


What do you think the proper hide to find ratio should be to keep the sport fresh?
I have heard someone say before that they thought newbies should find 100 geocaches before they hid their first one. I can't agree or disagree with that because it really depends on the type of hides one has found. There are many great caches that I have found and the hider hasn't even found 100 caches. If a person can produce a quality hide that they can maintain, then I don't think there is a special ratio.


How did you end up getting into this wacky hobby?
When Layne was real young, my sister in law was talking about this game. She said there was something hidden close to my parents on a sign by the bridge and you had to use coordinates to find it. We went and found it just by checking all the signs. I think we may have even signed it. I never really thought about it anymore until Layne was on in school and had Kendall Barton as his music teacher. I had seen his pictures and posts on Facebook about Geocaching and he had wrote on there one day that Geocaching was the original Pokemon Go. That's the day I downloaded the app and the rest is history!!


What's your favorite geocache?
This is a tough one, because I have many favorites! I guess I'm gonna go with Old River Runner's "Lake Dardanelle Night Cache" (GC3YW75). I like that it is a night cache hidden in a state park near the camping area, and I like the manner in which it is hidden. This is a cache I have taken several people to. Everyone has loved it!


If money was no object, where would you like to go geocaching?
I know it sounds weird, but I have zero desire to leave the connected United States. Having said that, if I had the money (and I will save it up), I want to completely cache Route 66, staying at all the cheesy motels and eating at all the little diners!


Do you like geocaching by yourself or in a group?
Definitely with a group since that's usually how I roll anyways. It's always a race between us and at the end of the day, the winner has the bragging rights as king geocacher!


How many First to Finds do you have?
I think around 10.


Are you a First to Find person who is always set on go and if so, how many miles out do you have your settings on to get notifications?
I will go after a FTF if its close enough to me. I won't go too far. I think my notification setting is for 40 miles. It is more of a way to let me know there are some new ones the next time I am in that specific area.


Do you have any other hobbies besides geocaching?

We are a "car" family, so a hobby for us is to put our classic vehicles in car shows and parades. On my own, I love to scrapbook. I have taken many pictures for my scrapbooks since I have been geocaching!

September 2018 Geocacher Profile

Sep 01, 2018 - 7:42 PM - by MathSeeker
The Membership Relations Committee is happy to showcase some ArkGeo Geocachers through the "Geocacher Profile". The committee thought Flannelman aka Will Pumphrey should be the next cacher to be in the spotlight.

What is your geocaching name?
Flannelman

How did you choose your handle?
When I was a teenager I would always wear plaid flannel shirts in the Fall so my sister dubbed me flannelman.

How long have you been geocaching?
I joined Geocaching.com in June of 2005 so about 13 years now.

How did you find your first Geocache, and which one was it?
Landing Zone by Team Panda was my first cache. I finally found it July 8, 2005. The cache was located about a mile from my house and I first tried to find it without a gpsr but I didn't have any luck. I bought a Garmin Legend and went back with the coords and found the cache after a little while. I had no idea what I was looking for.

Who usually goes with you when you go caching?
My kids did most of the time. I cached with Quartzcacher a lot back then too. Now I don't cache as much but when I do it may be with a group of Boy Scouts, my kids, or by myself.

How long will you work on puzzle caches before you give up?
I don't really spend much time on them.

What town/areas have you most enjoyed caching in?
I like country caches the most especially if they are are near something interesting. I really like cemetery caches in historic cemeteries because I like to look at the old tombstones and try to guess what may have been going on during that person's life.

Do you do paperless caching?
I do now. I used to print out copies of the cache pages or GSAK reports when I first started then I went to a Palm Pilot PDA. Now I use the app on my smart phone.

What kind of geocaching rig do you use?
If using an actual GPSr, I go with my Garmin GPS60csx other wise it is my smart phone.

Why would you recommend anyone else to take up geocaching?
Because it is a fun hobby that can lead you to some very interesting places. And it offers an opportunity for some good exercise.

Where are you originally from?
Prattsville, Ar.

In what states have you geocached?
Arkansas and Texas. When I'm out of town I usually don't have time to cache.

What was your first event ever attended?
Arkansas meet Alabama

How many caches have you found?
781 and slowly counting


Which type of cache container do you prefer over the rest?
Something that is well camouflaged. I really like the containers the the owner put a lot of effort into to disguise the cache as something else.

What was the most famous cache that you have found?
I don't know. I haven't found any that I would say are famous.

Do you use disposable batteries or rechargeable batteries?
Disposable in the GPSr.

Do you enjoy hiding or finding more as your part of the hobby?
I really like finding because I get to see the great creativity of the cachers out there.

Do you have a personal goal in mind when you make a hide?
Not really other than to provide a good experience for those who may come looking for my cache.

What is your favorite type of cache hide?
I like to hide ammo cans so the kids will have room for trade items.

Out of all your hides, what are your personal favorites that you take pride in?
I think Creek View Cache is probably my favorite. It is a really peaceful place that has a nice overlook of the creek below.

What do you think the proper hide to find ratio should be to keep the sport fresh?
I think this stat used to be more important back when there were fewer geocachers out there but now there are plenty of caches to be found and there are always new caches popping up. I think everyone should hide a cache or two just to see what it takes but if you don't enjoy hiding then don't sweat it.

How did you end up getting into this wacky hobby?
A guy at work was talking about it so I decide to look up Geocaching.com to see what it was all about.

What's your favorite geocache?
The now archived Shame on Me by QuartzCachers. I looked for that cache every day before work for almost two weeks before I found it. I even knew what the container was but still had a hard time finding it.

If money was no object, where would you like to go geocaching?
I would like to go on a journey across the United States camping and caching in every state along the way.

Do you like geocaching by yourself or in a group?
Both. I do like the challenge of hunting caches by myself but I like the fun of caching with others and the memories and friendships that are made.

How many First to Finds do you have?
I really don't know, a handful maybe.

Are you a First to Find person who is always set on go and if so, how many miles out do you have your settings on to get notifications?
No I'm not. I used to be a little more concerned about getting FTF's and would go up to 30 miles or so to try.

Do you have any other hobbies besides geocaching?
I like all kinds of outdoor activities but hunting, camping, and hiking are at the top of the list right now. I also am an avid board gamer and I like to read.

August 2018 Geocacher Profile

Aug 15, 2018 - 8:35 PM - by MathSeeker
The Membership Relations Committee is happy to showcase some ArkGeo Geocachers through the "Geocacher Profile". The committee thought Searcykid aka Thirlo Roberts should be the next cacher to be in the spotlight.

What is your geocaching name?
My geocaching name is "Searcykid"

How did you choose your handle? When I bought my first computer I was working at Land O Frost and I kept pestering one of my younger coworkers with questions about how to use it and he blurted out one time, "Your worse than a kid with a new toy." Shortly after that I was trying to sign up for EBAY but every name I tried to sign up with came back,
Already been taken. So I remembered what my friend had said that I was like a Kid with a new toy so I tried Searcykid and it had not been taken. So ever since I have used the handle Searcykid and used it when I signed up for Geocaching.com

How long have you been geocaching? Since 2007

How did you find your first Geocache, and which one was it? The first geocache to find was one by Woodwalker called Courage. Here is the post I made on that day.

'Found this cache today. My first find ever. Do not have a gps yet so I had to use all the spoilers, maps, and hints I could get.. Quick find. First place I looked after crossing street.
The log is full. Needs new sheet. tftc sl '

Who usually goes with you when you go caching? My wife Sue who goes by the handle Quiltingranny.

How long will you work on puzzle caches before you give up? Not very long. I am the impatient kind.

What town/areas have you most enjoyed caching in? I have enjoyed every area I have geocached in. Sue and I spent a lot of time searching for the State Park caches. We did not complete the entire challenge, but we spent a lot of time and found almost all of them. Other than that we hid almost all our caches in the Searcy and White County area.

Do you do paperless caching? No. I need all the help I can get and I am not very tech literate.

What kind of geocaching rig do you use? I use a Garmin GPSmap 60CSx

Why would you recommend anyone else to take up geocaching? For all the reason that I found interesting and fun. Geocaching was the most fun of any activity Sue and I had ever participated in. When I told my doctor about my new hobby he told me that that sounded like something he would have recommended I do if he had known about it. I needed to do exercise and walk and my hobby fit that perfectly. The new acquaintances we met while geocaching were the nicest people we could have ever met, and we made a lot of long time friends through this hobby. The Meet and Greet events are the greatest, and we enjoyed every one we ever attended.

Where are you originally from? I was born in Little Rock and did not leave Arkansas until 1953 when I went to Washington DC to live with my brother and his wife. I had intended to quit school after the 8th grade and my brother offered to send me to high school and teach me to fix TV's and Radio's if I would babysit their baby while he and my sister in law worked in the evenings. That sounded like an adventure to me so I did just that. I spend 4 years in DC and graduated in 1957 from Theodore Roosevelt High School. I was the first of my siblings to graduate high school out of eleven. Several that were younger than me followed me and graduated high school.

In what states have you geocached? Other than Arkansas the only other state we have geocached in is Indiana.

What was your first event ever attended? The first Event was at Burns Park in North Little Rock.

How many caches have you found? 579

Which type of cache container do you prefer over the rest? I used to prefer the Ammo Can and tried to hide all my caches in Ammo Cans until we had a run of thefts and all my ammo cans were stolen. That really took the wind out of my sails and I quit hiding caches for a long time. Then I started just using micro containers and a log. But that was not near as much fun as the larger containers so I started using waterproof plastic containers which also got pilfered but I did not lose as much money with them. But the most fun was using unique and home made containers.

What was the most famous cache that you have found? Gorilla Stash. The oldest geocache in Arkansas

Do you use disposable batteries or rechargeable batteries? Rechargeable mostly.

Do you enjoy hiding or finding more as your part of the hobby? I like hiding and finding equally. Sue and I used to compete with other cachers here in Searcy for First To Find. Sometimes there would be two or three geocaching couples arriving at the cache site at the same time and have to run to find the cache first.

Do you have a personal goal in mind when you make a hide? Mostly just to give the cache an unusual name. Caches such as 'Take a Kid Fishing", "This One is for Bryce.", "Kids Cache", "Rainbows and Browns" hidden on the Little Red River at Ramsey's Landing, and "Safe at Home" which fooled a lot of people at first as they thought that one had to be at the Sports complex but It was just a cache hidden at my house near a sign that says Protected by Superor Protection Systems.

What is your favorite type of cache hide? Ones that have a theme and with a unique container.

Out of all your hides, what are your personal favorites that you take pride in? They are both gone now but the two I really liked was "Take a Kid fishing." and "Kid's Cache."

What do you think the proper hide to find ratio should be to keep the sport fresh? I don't think a certain ratio would be necessary but I do think that all geocachers should try to hide as many caches as they possible can and look for unusual and special places to hide them.

How did you end up getting into this wacky hobby? At first I was just curious and got on Geocaching.com and looked for a geocache in Searcy. I did not have a GPS but found one of Woodwalkers caches that had enough clues that I found it without one. Then I was hooked.

What's your favorite geocache? Woodwalkers " Illuminating Louis" It is a multicache and Sue and I had trouble finding the final cache and we had to "Phone a Friend" and Pat gave a clue that helped then it was try all combinations until we got it right.

If money was no object, where would you like to go geocaching? I would like to try to find a cache in every state.

Do you like geocaching by yourself or in a group? Both are fun but most of my finds are just with Sue and me.

How many First to Finds do you have? I don't know, and I don't know how to find out, but I found a lot.

Are you a First to Find person who is always set on go and if so, how many miles out do you have your settings on to get notifications? No, I am not really a first to find person, but for a while Sue and I did keep an eye out for new hides in the Searcy area and rushed to be the first to find them.

Do you have any other hobbies besides geocaching? I play around with making things out of wood but my skills are limited, so it is just to entertain myself. I made a few Jig Saw puzzles from photographs that I glued to wood. Some were Ok. The ones that turned out good, I gave to the subject in the picture.

July 2018 Geocacher Profile

Jul 06, 2018 - 7:55 AM - by MathSeeker
The Membership Relations Committee is happy to have the Geocacher Profile backup and running. We selected Jeremiah Sanders family aka Sanders_Sooners to be the next geocachers to be in the spotlight.

What is your geocaching name? Sanders_Sooners

How did you choose your handle? We are originally from Oklahoma and are fans of the Sooners. Added our last name to the handle.

How long have you been geocaching? We started geocaching May 2013.

How did you find your first Geocache, and which one was it? The first cache we found was GC30CM5; nothing special, just close to home. We were hooked from the start!


Who usually goes with you when you go caching?
Most of my caching is solo. When we have time, Trail_Rated and I will do a full day caching expedition.

How long will you work on puzzle caches before you give up? I never give up on solving a puzzle. Sometimes I will be stumped and put it on the back burner. I usually spend a lot of time solving puzzles from all over the country during the winter. This gives me ideas for my own puzzles and sometimes I spot something that will help me solve another puzzle a year after originally trying to solve it.

What town/areas have you most enjoyed caching in? We have found caches in 20 states so far. Typically we focus on quality when we travel, seeking out high favorite point caches or historic caches. Our most enjoyable caches usually involve terrain and scenic areas. We especially enjoyed caching around Moab Utah finding caches only reachable by Jeep.

Do you do paperless caching? Is there another way? We find caches via Cachly app on iPhone.

What kind of geocaching rig do you use? By “rig” do you mean geo-mobile? We get from cache to cache aboard Boomer the Geo-Jeep (4 door wrangler).
Discover trackable EGWDA9.

Why would you recommend anyone else to take up geocaching? It is a great family activity that can bring you to places you didn’t know existed. There is something for every type of cacher; hiking, urban, puzzles, scuba, gadgets. You will also meet some great people along the way.

Where are you originally from? We are originally from “no man’s land”, Oklahoma panhandle. We have lived in NW Arkansas/Bentonville for last 16yrs.

In what states have you geocached? So far we have found caches in 20 states. Arkansas,Oklahoma, Missouri, and Texas are all over 100 finds

What was your first event ever attended? August Souvenir kick off 2014 in Bella Vista Arkansas. We just attended our first GIGA / Geo-Woodstock in Cincinnati OH.

How many caches have you found? Currently at 1,754 caches, we are starting to slow down with all the local caches in the bag. Typically try to find a dozen or so when we travel.

Which type of cache container do you prefer over the rest? Anything unique or custom that blends into its environment. Never turn down a classic ammo can.

What was the most famous cache that you have found?
The most famous would probably be Mingo. We have found the oldest cache in 8 states.


Do you use disposable batteries or rechargeable batteries? Just recharge my iPhone

Do you enjoy hiding or finding more as your part of the hobby? Both hiding and finding are enjoyable. I feel like they are almost 2 separate games. I put a lot of work and expense into many of my caches. It is awesome to read a great log. Finding amazing caches is the fuel that keeps me going and motivates me to raise the bar in my hides.

Do you have a personal goal in mind when you make a hide? Just that people enjoy the cache and hope they tell others about the quality of caches in NW Arkansas / Bentonville area. Many of the cache hiders in the area take pride in hiding caches and focus on making NWA a geocaching destination.

What is your favorite type of cache hide? I have several types of hides from easy P&Gs to 5D puzzle and 5D terrain. My favorite hide is something I would like to find. Probably a high terrain / hiking cache with an ammo can at a scenic location. Likely not found very often but worth the hunt.

Out of all your hides, what are your personal favorites that you take pride in? We have 20 caches with at least 10 favorite points, some of them only a couple months old. Some of my favorite hides are Augmented Reality NWA - GC7QGCJ (the first active AR cache in the world!),
Night Cache - GC530E5, Zero In GC7JYRB, Frogger - GC7J3P6, Dead Drop - GC6ZRAP, Goad Springs -GC55C79 (archived), 50ft Down - GC6649T (archived), Cold Cave - GC679G1, Quandary - GC78KKK.

What do you think the proper hide to find ratio should be to keep the sport fresh? We have over 200 caches hidden. The proper hide to find ratio depends on how many caches you can maintain. If you look at my logs, I regularly check in my caches. On average 10 a week. If the cache is hidden well enough with the proper container it won’t require much maintenance. However, I don’t think someone with 5 finds should hide any caches. There should be a minimum quantity, probably at least 50 finds before hiding a cache.

How did you end up getting into this wacky hobby?
We were introduced to geocaching during a camping trip with by brother-in-law, “Trail_Rated”. We found a couple caches that first weekend and were hooked.

What's your favorite geocache? Hands down, its got to be “Infernal Device” in OKC GC6XJQA, S5 Tunnel by Eureka Springs GCKQWY is a close 2nd.

If money was no object, where would you like to go geocaching? It would be amazing to go on a worldwide tour finding caches hidden where movies were shot like Indiana Jones in Petra Jordan
GC7B6VA, Star Wars in Tunisia GC2FDRQ, and Lord of the Rings in New Zealand GC1HCXK.

Do you like geocaching by yourself or in a group? Most of my caching is solo but the best experiences are shared.

How many First to Finds do you have? We currently have 114 FTFs.

Are you a First to Find person who is always set on go and if so, how many miles out do you have your settings on to get notifications?
I have 3 different areas set up for max radius notifications. Bentonville, Joplin, and Ft Smith. Joplin and Ft Smith just so I know about new caches to find next time I’m in the area.

Do you have any other hobbies besides geocaching? Other hobbies would be Jeeping / Off-Roading, camping, and hiking.

November 2017 Geocacher Profile

Nov 01, 2017 - 8:55 PM - by MathSeeker
The Membership Relations Committee is happy to showcase some ArkGeo Geocachers through the "Geocacher Profile". The committee thought The O'Malley Family aka HogWildFamilyof6 should be the next cachers to be in the spotlight.

What is your geocaching name? HogWildFamilyof6 (2 children have their own- GeoWildChild and Noswad Yellamo

How did you choose your handle?
We are a hog callin, Razorback cheerin’ wild family of 6, so what else would we be called? Our youngest daughter was named the geowildchild by our geo buddy FattRobb because she was always going wild ready to jump out of the car and find the cache and Noswad is our son (Dawson O’Malley) spelled backwards cuz he is a backwards kind of guy.

How long have you been geocaching? We started caching January 29, 2011.

How did you find your first Geocache, and which one was it? The cache name is ‘Come on in’. On 1/29/11, it was 72 degrees outside and I googled “fun things to do outside with the kids” since it was so nice on a winter day. Geocaching was the first thing to pop up. We had no cell phones and no knowledge of what this hobby was, so I printed out the page with a small map and info about the cache that was in a cemetery down the road from us. Long story short, I pulled up and parked directly in front of the grave site of my husband’s dad. (I always asked about his dad and he never really told me much about him.) After I realized I was at the cemetery where his dad was, I apologized and told him we could leave. His response was “you know what is even stranger about this?” I asked “what” and he said “today is my dad’s birthday”. Tearfully, I told him we would leave and he said “come on kiddos, it’s time to meet your grandpa”. We didn’t find the cache that day, but we had a wonderful time getting to know my father-in-law and grandfather that none of us was able to know.

Who usually goes with you when you go caching?
Typically, myself and my husband (Boss Hog) but our kiddos LOVE to cache too.

How long will you work on puzzle caches before you give up?
Per Boss Hog, “5 minutes” lol

What town/areas have you most enjoyed caching in?
We enjoyed El Dorado and Smackover area, and of course the state parks. Other than that, any place we travel.

Do you do paperless caching? yes

What kind of geocaching rig do you use? Now, it’s a Toyota Scion but most memories were made in our van. We loaded it full of picnic supplies, tents and ice chests to accommodate our day long (and sometimes weekend) excursions.

Why would you recommend anyone else to take up geocaching?
Geocaching fills every void you have. You need a way to bond with the family? Geocaching does it. You want a fun way to learn math, geography, history, etc.? Geocaching is your tool. Do you want to visit some of the coolest places on earth? Give geocaching a try.

Where are you originally from? 7 generations born and raised in Texarkana, AR

In what states have you geocached? Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas and Washington

What was your first event ever attended? The meet and greet that I hosted at our local Pizza Inn, led by the great rklmbl, followed by Texarkana’s first CITO the next day.

How many caches have you found? 1042

Which type of cache container do you prefer over the rest? I really like the super unique ones. Those seem to have the best stories that you remember. Like, the one that was found in Kentucky having to crawl in the cock-pit of a staged plane crash in the mountain, or the big 5 gallon bucket found in the woods with hundreds of keys that you had to go through to find the one to unlock the container to get to the log.

What was the most famous cache that you have found? Probably the one at headquarters or the original cache location

Do you use disposable batteries or rechargeable batteries? disposable

Do you enjoy hiding or finding more as your part of the hobby?
Both equally the same

Do you have a personal goal in mind when you make a hide? Ultimately, I want people to learn something they didn’t know before they leave.

What is your favorite type of cache hide? I really like the ones that are educational; not necessarily ones that have goodies in them, but one that made the finder feel they learned something neat at our town.

Out of all your hides, what are your personal favorites that you take pride in? I like the ones that my kiddos took part in creating. I love the fact that they are learning about life although they call it playing or having fun.

What do you think the proper hide to find ratio should be to keep the sport fresh? I don’t know if there is a proper number because some people are just creative and I wouldn’t want to take that talent from them, but I really do wish that people would quit doing so many log only caches in as many spots as they can because it makes it harder for those who put effort into it, to find a place to hide one.

What's your favorite geocache? Besides the experience of signing the log at GC Headquarters, I think the next one would be one that we found in Texas, Crystal Clear by Epiphany Wand, (GC4H1T6). The prize was a handmade wand that she added each time someone retrieved the one that was in the cache that you lowered out of a tree. Such time, thoughtfulness and creativity goes into each prize. She also attached a handwritten note to the wand that we found.

If money was no object, where would you like to go geocaching? Bora Bora happens to be the first place that comes to mind… but maybe that’s just because I need to go there for vacation.

Do you like geocaching by yourself or in a group? Definitely with my family.

How many First to Finds do you have? No more than 5

Are you a First to Find person who is always set on go and if so, how many miles out do you have your settings on to get notifications? We aren’t that type of person.

Do you have any other hobbies besides geocaching? Anything to do with family: camping, crafting, working our concession stand, playing games at home, and laughing uncontrollably at the crazy antics Boss Hog (aka, dad/husband) does.
