For me, geocaching produces a similar feeling. And while others may find the joy in those small trinkets, it's all about the hunt for me. It's that feeling of accomplishment that I have when I realize what I've just done and I'm able to sign that log. It's the fact that I've located this tiny cache in the woods, on a trail, 233 miles from my home, with only a set of coordinates and a hint, or two. Never mind the fact that I may have not known exactly what I was looking for even looked like! Most of the times I only know if it is large or small, or what type of container it may be. When I'm close, it is up to me to figure out where this dastardly minded individual has actually placed the item I'm looking for, or how he/she has concealed it. And for what???? A few trinkets of dollar store items?? No. For me it is about that feeling of accomplishment. That feeling. That's what brings me back for more. How about you?
One of the more creative geocache containers that we've found.
Another one of those creative containers.
This container was laying at the bottom of a pine tree with other limbs...that's just unfair!
One of our favorites!
After a few weeks of geocaching hiatus, my wife and I were able to finally get out yesterday and do a bit of geocaching in our beautiful city of Valdosta. We found logged six and didn't have any DNFs! It was a great day!
