I’ve been interested in geocaching for a while now, at least since last summer (friends remember me trying to get some of them to join up). What could be more fun than a scavenger hunt for grown-up tech geeks? Unfortunately, they didn’t have the right spirit (or were overburdened by allergies).
At that time, I was held back by three things: ignorance, poverty, and lack of a GPS unit. While I could gain knowledge by joining Geocaching, it was hard to overcome the other two barriers.
Then Texas State Parks announced a geocache challenge. Then DEN announced Geocaching Day. DEN would even support Geocaching Day with two webinars as well as the links to information/inspiration. Heck! DEN would even provide bribes lunch for those who chose to participate!
Obviously God had a purpose for me: spreading the word on geocaching.
Saturday I bought my first GPS unit, a Garmin V, then I registered to be a DEN guide. I spent Sunday learning how to program my unit. I began Monday with recruiting efforts.
I have my first recruit!
