No-one Forced me to do This…Again! (Part 4)

Last Sunday evening a post was made on the logs for #6 in the ‘Noone is Forcing you to do this’ series, suggesting a group assault on this one. I jumped at the chance – not least because I would finally get to meet some of my local neighbourhood cachers, but also as I knew…

Pro-cache-tination

Those that know me will know I am a queen of procrastination….earlier this week I had plenty of things I “should” have been doing, but I was not thrilled by the idea of any of them, so instead I headed out for a morning of geocaching (of course!). I called dad to see if he…

Lost Egyptians?

Lake Mac Lap

No-one forced me to do it…but I did it! (Part 3)

My half-attempt at the first in the ‘No-one is forcing me to do this’ series, along with the added encouragement from my friendly neighbourhood cachers’ meant I woke this morning itching to give it another go.
