Kayaking…and…geocaching! Two of my favorite things. I decided it was my turn to start hiding some “yak” caches at Harris Lake. If nothing else, I’d at least have more excuses for making trips to the lake with my kayak. Since there are a bunch of them (7), I put them all on a different page.

I post about geocaching a lot…it’s a favorite hobby so what do you expect? Anyway, one of the things you can do is create “travel bugs” and then put them out there for other cachers to find. Here’s the ‘definition’ from the geocaching website:
–a Groundspeak Travel Bug is a trackable tag that you attach to an item. This allows you to track your item on Geocaching.com. The item becomes a hitchhiker that is carried from cache to cache (or person to person) in the real world and you can follow its progress online. —
So, I created my own and did so in honor of my beautiful siberian husky, Eli. The goal was to be transported to the location of the Iditarod Sled Dog race site in Alaska. He didn’t get there in time for the actual race but fellow cachers, “Snoopinaround” were able to take pictures of him at the site (along with another husky travel bug).
Ok, so most of my friends and family know that I love to geocache. Wait…I take that back. Most of them know I enjoy it but only a few actually understand the hobby. Anyway, I’m going on vacation next week and have already planned several “cache runs”. I’m hoping to visit Cane Creek Park to hide a few caches myself. Of course you know I’ll have to kayak there too. So…why not combine the two? PERFECT!! I’ve added a picture of the new cache containers that I painted today. Wow, I can’t wait for Friday to get here!
