Welcome to my World of Wonderment

Our planet is a neat place, full of weird and unusual people doing weird and unusual things. One oddball thing I like to do is geocache. What other activity is there that makes people travel hundreds of miles to climb a mountain, wade a river, and fight a Bigfoot, just to be the first person to sign a piece of paper rolled up in a 35mm film canister stuffed in the knot hole of a tree? I can't think of any other sport that has such a great mix of technology and the wonderful outdoors. A lot of geocaches are placed in a beautiful setting, or hidden in a challenging or unique way, or in a historical setting. Geocaching allows the finder to share in some of the hiders favorite places, and along the way you get to meet some interesting characters, and occasionally learn something new. While this blog is primarily a geocaching blog, I also use this place to post the occasional funny video or weird news story, or as a platform to rant or rave about something I really have to share. But for the most part this website is about you, the weirdo walking around in circles, talking into your GPS unit like it's a phone, pretending your taking pictures of a phone booth to find find the tiniest micro-cache, or circling your car around and around a light pole in a parking lot trying to retrieve a cache without even getting out of your car.

This video caused a little turmoil with my conservative family.

Oh crap, good thing your Mother doesn't have internet!

Big surprise: I love that video! But you know, I am a latte-sipping elitist.

I couldn't wipe the grin off my face for quite some time. Too Funny. I had to make sure Amy watched it. Sadly it too would freak my family out. They are so out of touch with reality.

As are most people who vote Republican. Yeah, gay marriage is the *most* important issue facing the nation. Never mind the economy, never mind the war, just make sure back-alley abortions are in demand again.

Guess it's a good thing Amy and I don't discuss politics . . .

Probably a very good thing! Sorry if I totally offended you. I definitely over-generalized. When I wrote that I wasn't thinking about people I like who vote Republican (and yes, there are some).
