Rhondle's Geocaching Stats

I got into Geocaching in 2006 after a friend (who later got into geocaching himself) told me about it. I borrowed a GPS receiver and found my first cache on July 11th, 2006. We only found a few caches in Vancouver until we moved to Salmon Arm in 2007 and finally bought our own GPSr: a Garmin eTrex-H as an early Christmas present to ourselves.

The following year (2008) we really got heavily into geocaching. Joanne's parents (who had become avid geocachers as a result of us telling them about geocaching on their previous visit) visited us from Australia - resulting in many geocaching trips. We also drove across most of Canada that year, giving us an opportunity to find caches in 9 provinces. Later, we ourselves traveled to Australia, and did quite a bit of geocaching while we were there. In all, we found 317 caches during 2008, including two international FTF's.

Due to time constraints and other daily obligations, we probably won't ever find as many caches as many other geocachers. And to be honest, that's not really our goal anyhow. Many geocachers make it their goal to find as many geocaches as possible, regardless of the cache type of challenge involved. In fact, as a result of this, many of the truly great geocaches are passed over as they focus on getting as many of the easiest caches as possible to bolster their finds.

For us, geocaching isn't about how many caches you can find. It's about letting geocaching take you places you normally never would know about, and it's about trying to find some tricky, ingenious or other extremely well designed caches. We are also interested in discovering or moving along travel bugs and geocoins, and as such we'll often try and track down caches that supposedly contain them. Typically we don't take trade items but will sometimes leave something. We've also hidden a few caches, visit our profile for more details.

If you're interested in getting started with Geocaching, we encourage you to stop by one of the Geocaching web sites and sign up. You may also be interested in reading my introduction to Geocaching.
