Yes. Geocaching can be fun. I came across my first one accidentally about 23 years ago in a remote area in southern Ohio. I was hiking, scouting an area to build a new mountain bike trail; I sat down on a log for a rest and a bite to eat when I noticed a Ziplock bag. I thought to myself, out here in the middle of nowhere? So I picked it up, and inside was another container with some random items inside. Thus, my intro to Geocaching.

I still go geocaching, although not as often as I would like. It's one of my favorite hobbies.

Chief Brody will often find himself up in my area, and he likes to invade my territory by peeing all over everything; aka finding and signing geocaches in my turf. So I have to run around as I can to re-mark my territory. There are several caches in my area with both of our signatures on the log.

I'd invite anyone else to do the same. Geocaching has adventure, stealth, fun and exercise all wrapped up into one short trip.

Mountain biking, guitar playing and my passion since early 80’s; HO scale truck modeling.

Currently I'm working on a mirror for backing assistance.

Before that, it was a mirrors setup so that I could lay in my bunk and view the "Red/Green" dock lights without needing to get up every 10 minutes to look.

Please keep us updated. When I dont feel a forklift every few minutes I start to get antsy.

Y'all GUYS, marking your territory, haha! Agreed, it sure is a great and healthy exit from the truck type of adventure.

Raise it up.. all others! I'd do it, in a heartbeat .. were I out there.. !

I love old time fun. Prefer Chess over Parking Wars, too! sorry.gif

I have TV and PS4 in my truck but rarely get to watch or play. Usually at the end of the day it’s dinner, and some music or talk, text with friends when parked catching up, my mind is too fried to focus on games or shows. I tend to run long mile days so I get wiped….tonight however since my PU is not till 1645 tommorrow afternoon, I may indulge in some Far Cry 6.

I’ve also decided to try and remember to be more active on here, I keep forgetting to check and post….lol

Apparently my mirror and microwave manage to work together enough so I can see faint red flashing and faint green on it. Def helpful.
