Misha,, If you DH does not have a hobby and like the outdoor. My DH does not like the outdoor, But love to geocaches which take place outdoor. Here is the page on us. It give us somethings to do on the weekends. My DH would just set around doing nothing, now we get out and go hunting. Plus he is now on the Arkansas board, He is V-president. So that will keep him busy as well. DH does not have any hobby, just watches TV and plays porker on the computer. He is going to drive me crazy when he retires in about 10 years.


Mason.. You did good on a Garmin. That is the best brand.

I've already started looking into geocaching. Looks like fun and I set up an account at geocaching.com. The iWay is no good for it but the Nuvi will work. I may pick up an eTrex model later on just for geocaching.

You are going to have to tell me all about your first Geocaches when you find it.... once you find the first one you will be hooked..

Thanks Carla. I just sent ya a friends request over at geocaching.

I'm looking forward to it. Maybe I can manage to hunt a few in different states as I travel if I can locate some near my stopping points.

They are EVERYWHERE!! small/large.. All over the world not just US. I know people hide them at most rest stops. So you shouldn't have a problem there. It will get you out of the motel room,, and away from your knitting.. =( but you can knit at night, you can't geocachs at night.......................unless it is a nighttime cache.. Those are fun.

Can't wait to hear about you advanture.. and I added you to my friend list.

If you have any question about it let me know. I might know the answer if not I will ask my DH.

Have fun hunting.

Now you are not a "muggle"

I second Carla's suggestion about geocaching. My dad has been very into it for a few years now. I got him a Garmin eTrex a few years ago for Christmas. I've found a few, but since I'm a student and I work full time, I don't find as much time to go out hunting. It's a lot of fun though, and I think you'd really like it. Just for S&Gs, here's my profile, too: TheCallieJeanyus

I found a cache listed about a half mile from this truck stop and decided to go hunt for it. Better than sitting around. It made for a nice walk but the cache was located at a very busy Cracker Barrel restaurant and there were far too many people around for me to get it although I am positive I know where it was.

I didn't find it but it was still fun.

I did find a survey marker though, and was able to log that as found.

Mason,.. I told my DH that you had signed up for geocaching. He told me about a web-site you might like to check out. It is about Geocaching and truck drives.. it will help you find places to park your truck around area that have geocaches.

There is a whole series on Cracker Barrel caches. They are all called "off your rocker". We hid one at our local C-Barrel.
Too many Muggles around for you to find. oh well.. you will have lots more changes to find some.
