My husband, jcluadii, was a Computer Science major at ATU. I was a Parks and Recreation major with an emphasis in Natural Resource Managment. We spend all of our spare time hiking, kayaking, camping, or jeepin' - and he spends any extra time playing with computers.
So when we found out about geocaching, we had to give it a shot. I bought him a Garmin GPS for Christmas this year and the next weekend he was in the woods up around Hector trying it out. He came home that day with his first find under his belt and told me all about it. It sounded fun... I would get to hike and play in the woods like I always do and hunt for treasures while I was out there.
The following weekend, we went up above Dover and I got my first find at Ties That Bind by Saddlebags. Well, needless to say, I was hooked. We have been caching together every weekend since.
