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.

Testing, testing, is this thing on? Stand back I’m not sure how big this thing gets! That’s an old joke but still funny. Well anyway, I think I need somewhere to spill out the rants, raves, and reviews that are bouncing around inside my skull, so I am going to try out “blogging” and see if it relieves any of the pressure behind my eyes. “Blogging”, “Blog”, Blogger”, I kind of hate those words, and I’m not sure why? “Blog” (I’ll quit using quotes in a second, I just felt like the quote mark is under appreciated in today’s society so I am going to give it some love here. What other punctuation mark changes the direction it faces every time you use it, and still only takes up one place on a keyboard?) and “Blogger” to me, conjures up an idea of some pasty skinned nerd in his underwear, who sits in his mom’s basement complaining about the lag on World of Warcraft. Hmmmm? Well, other than the mom’s basement thing I guess it fits here also. So fucking Blog this baby!!!
