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 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
- Oklahoma (my mother lives in a tri-state area — Texas, New Mexico, and Olkahoma
This summer, I’ve added the following states.
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.
