COOKIES READY TO GO
Monday, December 21, 2009
Got up early to snow about 4 in total so far, not much as snow goes in NWPA. Went for Maggies walk, she still likes to run and jump in snow..also for some reason when we run across other paw prints in the snow she has to sniff each and everyone, I don't know maybe they smell different in the snow...as I don't see her doing this with no snow. Anyway got back had oats and toast, cleaned up some and got ready to go to my fist geocache get together. It was held at http://www.quakersteakandlube.com/ in Sharon Pa. Had a nice time, met new peeps, ate good food BBQ Chicken Qusadillas Mmmmmmmmmmm good, I also took my brother along (hes not into caching yet) he had their famous wings, he said he didn't realize how big geocaching was. I can't seem to get anyone in my family interested in caching with me. I learned a few new things about caching while there, and received my first path tag also something new to me. The first pic I posted is the one I received from Voyageurs60 a nice geocaching couple from Pittsburgh. You trade or just give to fellow cachers and then got to pathtag.com to register that you have received it. Some others I met were Purple-KV, KFOOX they were the hosts, some others were KerBear,

We got up at first light with small amount of snow...about 2 in. When Maggie first goes out in the snow she loves it....she jumps and runs like a puppy ...until she gets cold...then she stands there with one paw up looking at me...."please mama pick me up "last year for the 10 and below days I got her "boots" and she wore them with out complaint...I think she knew they were keeping her feet from freezing to the side walk. As the day wore on it kept snowing (not like the coast area was getting) and I was getting antsy...so we went out to a new geocache...very local only a few blocks away...fifth grade class doing a project ...hiding a geocach....It was a cool hide no pun lol

ugh! then worked on the computer some. Watched the Steelers lose last nite another ugh!
I think I will change the name of this blog a little so I can use it for my travels as well as geocaching. Since no caching today here is a pic of a Lowe's cache I found a while back...the cache is in the pic, do you see it?? It is neat, I would have had a problem with it if it hadn't been for the kid next door he works there and gave me a hint. Well that's all for now...not much going on this cold winter day

WOW Got up usual time and got a shock....only 19 out side ....but out we went anyway! Note in the pic of Maggie the wind blowing her ears and tail. Even Maggie does not like the cold weather....she does her business and heads back home. Now for Maggie to do this is something else ....as she loves to be out side and will stand there and beg when I say lets go home....she stops and stands there looking at me....till I tell her ok one more time and she knows that to mean a little more walking!! She is so smart. Anyway there is a pic of her in the new Steeler coat I made for her this week. Just in time I would say! If you click on the pic's you can see a close up.

Got up at 6:30 to our daily routine, maggie walk, daily devotions, breakfast of oatmeal and toast.
The got ready for the day, went to vets get maggie flea&tick med. looked for a couple caches. The first one looked like it was in someones yard..I am not real keen on those yet..so left it. Next went driving along Shenango River past the lake. Found one on a bridge was simple bridge find and I forgot to take a pic. Went on our way to the next one on another river road, as we were driving along I noticed that the state had been doing alot of brush cutting (I have been looking for a walking stick but to many $$) I got out to take a look and seen some large branches that would make great walking sticks. So I walked up the road a ways and found 4 nice ones, so I am going to make my own. I will post pic's when done. So on to the next cache. When I got there I was on an old small bridge that had been by past and new one built many many years ago. I was a multi and this was the first leg of it. Well it went on deeper in to woods and this is hunting season here in PA and I have no orange to ware, not sure I would go anyway, so didn't look for the other 4 caches in this multi. Will save it for another time. Again forgot pic. I just got this new camera and keep forgetting I have it! So I will show you pic's of a previous find This is a typical guard rail cache Well thats all for now

HINT WHERE IT WAS LOCATED
When I first started geocaching in July of this year I did not have a GPS, so the first few finds were found with the hints I could glean from the log post and what ever the owner of the cache posted on their listing page and looking at the google map. This was the first one I found ,the hints were wood and hammer and by looking at the google map location of the cach I was able to figure out were it was, being that I live only a few miles away. I found it in about 3 min. and was delighted with my success! This is such a fun hobby great for family fun and it gets you outdoors and exercise to boot! To check out all this geocaching go to http://www.geocaching.com/ and join the site its free. When you join and go to hide and seek page type in you zip code and be suprised how many are located around your town. I think you will be shocked! I know I was. What I would like to have now is a caching buddy (besides maggie :) ) it seems no one in my family is intrested and thinks I'm a bit nuts doing this. Just wanted to start this blog going I will put some of my finds on but I didnt take pic's of all them , but will start now that I have the blog going, but will be careful not to give to much away :)
so till later
