  1. Hey guys,


    Sorry it has taken me so long to reply. I have had some health issues recently. I received the witch late last week when I got home from the hospital, and she will be moving along to the next lucky recipient within the next 2 days. I will also post photos as soon as I can. Sorry it has taken me so long, the health issues were extremely unexpected, and I hope you guys don't think I bailed on the mission. I again sincerely apologize. :)


    Thank you for allowing me to participate in this mission, and she will be flying out again by wed. I promise.

  4. Just a heads-up!


    I sent out 29 or 30 packages today. This includes the last of the feathers won in my cointest, the feathers won in the sig item cointest, 5 trades and a few suprises. So if you are expecting anything from me (and perhaps if you're not), watch your mail boxes! Domestic should be there by the end of the week, international, 7 - to 10 business days, hopefully. ;) Whew! That's the last of the mass mailing for me for a while!



    :) You are so generous, i want to say thank you for making people so happy. :D


    I normally hate saying just "ditto" but, I think Geo stated this pretty well, and gets a whole hearted ditto from me. Thank you so much for your generosity it totally brought a smile to my face when I received your feather.

  5. My hearts desire is a Claddaugh coin. I didn't know about them till it was too late ;)


    I have an update to my hearts desire. Ali was VERY generous and sent me one of the Claddagh coins. It is BEAUTIFUL and honestly, my favorite coin to date. Thank you so much Ali, you are the best :D

  6. My mailbox was pretty stuffed this weekend.


    I received one of Karen's handmade sig items, tis a beaut ;)


    I also recieved a few ebay purchases




    Ali sent me a truly awesome, amazing, beautiful Claddagh coin which I fell in love with the moment I saw it. I'll post photos once I am home :D


    Thank you again everyone for the kindness and generosity, you all amaze me B)

  7. I originally purchased my GPS for a small trip I was taking up north, and didn't want to get lost. One of the listed features of it, was the ability to do "Geocaching". I have always had a curious mind, so, I followed the link on the Garmin website, and started researching it. After a bit of poking around the site, I found a cache that was within a block of where I grew up. I figured it would be the perfect way for me to try this thing out.


    The day my GPSr arrived, I loaded up my first waypoint, drove to a park I had never been to (keep in mind, I lived a block from it for the first 16 years of my life), and started to follow the little arrow. I learned a few things that day. First was, never forget the mosquito spray. I also learned how much I missed being outdoors. Walking through the trails, in the rain, getting dirty and muddy and LOST, I realized how much I loved it, and missed it since starting my office job.


    I spent an hour and a half looking for my first cache, and walked past it about a dozen times. All told, I probably walked about 2 miles to get to a cache that was within a quarter mile of my car :D . But man, the elation I felt when I finally spotted that ammo can, hidden under a log... I danced and smiled for the first time in a very long time. I realized, right then, at that moment, how much I was missing out on that I used to enjoy. I sat down, carefully opened it up, amazed at the odd little trinkets inside of the cache, and realized another mistake I had made... Sitting down on an ant hill :D ... But, I still loved it.


    I'm still relatively new to geocaching, but, for me, it has become a way to relieve stress. To get out, away from my cubicle, and enjoy the outdoors like I used to. To get back to nature so to speak, and a way to find peace with myself that I don't get during the week. It's also a way for me to start losing the 40 pounds I've gained in the last 2 years working in a cubicle. So, in some ways, geocaching is probably (in an off hand way) saving my life. For without it, I would just sit here, at my cube all week, and then sit at home all weekend in front of the TV doing nothing but rotting.
