First Geo-Caching Expedition

On the way home from dinner @ Bestial, my new BFF took me on a bit of a round about route back to my hotel and confessed to me her deepest darkest nerdiest secret. She had become a geo-cacher earlier this year. For the uninitiated, Geo-Caching is a global treasure hunt carried on stealthily by GPS aficianados in the back alleys and parks and school playgrounds all around you. Don't get caught, be honest about the finds, and don't fuck with other peoples fun or property.

Our first spot up on a parking garage in downtown Oldenburg seemed to have been Muggled. (ie, somebody fucked with the cache object). Saw some lovely dusky views of the city though. Time well spent.




Then we proceeded to the next treasure spot. She'd already found this one, so with a bit of coaching she let me experience the kid like enthusiasm lost since Hide and Seek became uncool. When I was 20, that is.








Absolutely hilarious coincidence that blog buddy WhiteNoise had his first geo-caching day EXACTLY the same day Sheena did, but a few thousand miles apart.

Yet another thing to add to Sheena's list of things that fuck with my drinking and blogging time. Geo-caching, family, dishes, work, lawn care, bathing....

Still haven't gone out for a second find, but interesting little sport, innit? Some of the puzzle-type caches are quite tricky...

Wait a minute, you found it and it contained a note or letter about geo-caching?

Fascinating, I've never heard of this before.
