    July 2015 Geocacher Profile

    The Membership Relations Committee is happy to showcase some ArkGeo Geocachers through the "Geocacher Profile". The committee thought Rob and Tami Smith aka OR-NPL191 should be the next cachers to be in the spotlight.

    What is your geocaching name?
    OR-NPL191

    How did you choose your handle?
    We wanted something that reflected both of us. This was the license plate of our first car.

    How long have you been geocaching?
    Since August 2013

    How did you find your first Geocache, and which one was it?
    We used an iPhone.
    GC1D46Y Toltec Mounds ParkCache

    Who usually goes with you when you go caching?
    We cache together or with friends.

    How long will you work on puzzle caches before you give up?

    Rob will work for several days. Tami gives up after a few hours.

    What town/areas have you most enjoyed caching in?
    We enjoy all caches.

    Do you do paperless caching?
    Yes

    What kind of geocaching rig do you use?
    Garmin etrex 20
    Garmin Oregon
    Garmin Montana
    Or the iPhone 4
    Cachemobile: 1994 Dodge Dakota, 2004 Toyota Corolla, or 2012 Honda Pilot

    Why would you recommend anyone else to take up geocaching?
    It's a great way to see the country, find places you never knew existed and keeps you active in the great outdoors.

    Where are you originally from?
    Rob - Oregon
    Tami - Idaho
    We moved to Arkansas from Washington State.

    In what states have you geocached?
    Arkansas, Washington, California, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Texas, Idaho, Utah, Kentucky, Arizona, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, Nevada, Kansas, Colorado, Oregon, New Mexico, Indiana, Missouri, Illinois, Florida, South Carolina

    What was your first event ever attended?
    GC4JF6R The Final Countdown

    How many caches have you found?
    3121

    Which type of cache container do you prefer over the rest?

    Any we can find.

    What was the most famous cache that you have found?

    GC30 Mingo

    Do you use disposable batteries or rechargeable batteries?
    Both

    Do you enjoy hiding or finding more as your part of the hobby?
    Finding

    Do you have a personal goal in mind when you make a hide?

    No

    What is your favorite type of cache hide?
    The one we can find.

    Out of all your hides, what are your personal favorites that you take pride in?
    GC5JP2X Song Bird and our Letterbox series (Alpha-Zulu)

    What do you think the proper hide to find ratio should be to keep the sport fresh?
    Really couldn't say. When we have an idea or find a spot we want to share with others we place a cache. Not really a set ratio.

    How did you end up getting into this wacky hobby?
    We were visiting Lower White River State Park and the Superintendent told us about geocaching and the caches hidden at the parks. Our goal was to get all 52 park caches and collect the needed information for #53. Our first 25 caches were Park Caches.

    What's your favorite geocache?
    Again so hard to say. We enjoy so many, clever, evil, beautiful location or just a p&g. Each one is a smiley. We do enjoy reading the description the cache owner places on the cache page.

    If money was no object, where would you like to go geocaching?
    We would travel abroad and cache in every country we could.

    Do you like geocaching by yourself or in a group?
    We both prefer caching with others.

    How many First to Finds do you have?
    Not sure of the exact number but it is over 100.

    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, we don't jump for FTF. If we happen on one we will try for a FTF, but otherwise we are happy to get it when we are in the area.

    Do you have any other hobbies besides geocaching?
    Motorcycle riding and hiking
