Look who's caching now.....

You may or may not know about my obsession with geocaching. It is the perfect storm of outdoorsiness and complete nerdiness. Plus you get to be super suspicious and lurk around places and look for things which is pretty fun if you are a giant dork like me and want to pretend that you are some sort of secret agent, like this guy.

Jason and I indulge in these hijinks every chance we get. There are geocaches everywhere, urban, rural, international, underwater. Many a hiking and camping trip have been enhanced by finding these hidden treasures. You can read about our exploits here and here and here. However, this weekend's caching adventures were made that much better by the addition of........my mom!!

We spent the weekend at her house and took her out on Sunday to find a couple of caches. I had NO idea she would get so into it! We started out with Jason finding the first one -- Mom had been close. And holy cow her competitive juices got flowing!! The second cache gave us some trouble....but Jason finally spotted it, followed quickly by Mom. She was determined to be the first to find one!! And on the last cache of the afternoon, while Jason and I were still looking at the GPS trying to figure out which direction to go, we heard a triumphant shout from the bushes -- Mom had found it!! Needless to say....she was pretty darn excited. Check her out:


Success!! Please ignore the Private Property sign. She can't help it, it runs in her family.

We had a blast caching with Mom -- it's so much fun to get other people interested in the game!! I think we may have a future superstar on our hands.......
