I haven’t been devoting as much time this summer to geocaching. During my normal summers, I take time out to go on “geocaching adventures.” I may go to a small town and cache a town out or I may make a special trip to find one special cache. (I maintain a watchlist of interesting-looking geocaches on geocaching.com.) Sweetieheart usually accompanies me.

This was found on the Santa Fe Trail in Oklahoma, a geocaching trail maintained by DAR!

Sweetieheart holds a cache in Oklahoma.

This summer, though, I’ve been devoted to teacher-training and catching up on neglected housework. You see, my husband started a new job and we’re in the middle of new house routines as we get used to his new hours.

I’ve earned a few souvenirs, all of them accidentally. However, in my travels I’ve been devoted adding more geocaching states to my list.

Before this summer, I had found caches in the following states.

  • Texas (duh!)
  • California (Sweetieheart hails from San Francisco)
  • the District of Columbia — My husband says DC doesn’t count because it’s not a state.
  • New Mexico
  • Colorado
  • Oklahoma (my mother lives in a tri-state area — Texas, New Mexico, and Olkahoma

This summer, I’ve added the following states.

  • Delaware
  • Maryland
  • Virginia

This weekend I’ll be adding on at least one other new state: Minnesota. My sister-in-law is marrying in Bemidji. I’d like to get some other areas — maybe even cross the Canadian border!– but I doubt that I’ll have the time with our time crunch and the wedding festivities.

About scribedscribbles

Like most people, I hate filling out profile pages. Who am I? Well, I’m a wife, teacher, daughter, and friend. I’m also an intellectual, an introvert, a night owl, and a bookworm. I work with struggling readers and overachievers, ages 11 to 15. I take care of students, a cat, two rabbits, friends, and my husband. I enjoy geocaching, reading, volksmarching, gardening, crocheting for charity, lecturing, science fiction, learning, and teaching. My favorite colors are blue, green, and purple. I am judgmental, dyslexic, sweet, overweight, graying, short, generous, loving, supportive, and chronically early to meetings. I’m afraid of snakes, putting my head underwater, heights, depths, and failure.
