  1. It's been a blast! Thanks for LOTS of fun!
  2. Our kids love to go "Treasure Hunting". We kind of stopped caching for awhile, no excuses, just didn't bother to go anymore, when my 4 yr. old daughter asked why we hadn't gone treasure hunting anymore. We went out again on Mother's Day-and saw a little snake. Since I was only wearing sneakers & carrying the biggest of two kids, I decided now would be a good time to buy a pair of hiking boots. We cache as a family, and do mainly urban caches with playground equipment at the end of the day. What better way to spend with your family than finding treasures together? May they never grow too old to enjoy the hunt! Mother Gootz
  3. Party for a month! Cheers, Team Gootz Led by the old, yet still crazy Mother Gootz Where in the nursery rhyme does it say Humpty Dumpty is an egg?
  4. We just came back from a trip & had no problems with the airline. Used it for a little while on the plane, but the rules really didn't allow for it. My suggestion is to ask the flight attendant if you can use it, or just keep it in your bag & turned off for the duration of the flight.

  7. I cache with kids too young to go out during too much rain !! When visiting Oregon recently, we did hit one cache in the rain, but Gander Gootz hunted while me & the goslings stayed dry in the car. Maybe when they're older, I won't mind, but for now we hunt on sunny days! Mother Gootz Where in the nursery rhyme does it say Humpty Dumpty is an egg?
  8. I tried to get people interested in a Cayman Island trip when I first started geocaching. No-one even replied to my post. (Very disheartening...) Anyway, if you get a group together, YAHOO! I would seriously consider doing something like this in Hawaii or CI no sooner than 3-5 years from now. Got wee lil' ones to think about. you know!! If you can make this idea a reality in our time frame, Team Gootz will certainly make an effort to go!! Where in the nursery rhyme does it say Humpty Dumpty is an egg?

  10. There are several university placed caches here in the Houston area. The geography department in two local colleges placed them. No details for you however, but here's a link, maybe you can email them for assistance. Good Luck! Mother Gootz Where in the nursery rhyme does it say Humpty Dumpty is an egg?

  12. Many of my posts relate to the fact that I have two kids. Well, I was 8 mos. pregnant that fateful morning & my husband was out of town on an assignment. My OB/GYN had allowed me to work 1/2 days beginning that week due to a somewhat difficult pregnancy. I was listening to NPR as usual when I heard about the first plane. They didn't give it much play at first, so I figured it was just some idiot in a Cessna or something. Husband called & asked me if I'd heard about it...Yeah, what a stooge! Oh well, baby, have a good day... Man, I have a lot of work to do today... I gotta get these contracts keyed or they'll hate me when I leave at 11... Things progressed, everyone knows the timeline... People were glued to the TV set in our conference room and I just couldn't sit there & watch it. I'd come & watch awhile, go back to work, talk to hubby on the phone, cruise to the conference room just in time to see the second collapse. The pentagon, the field... Too much sadness, too much work... While my colleages watched in terror, I keyed my little contracts. I called the babysitter & felt a great need to hug my daughter. Still, I keyed like there was no tomorrow. At 11am, just like a good girl, I left the office for the day. The freeway was unusually packed for that time of day, but most businesses around town were letting their staff go home early due to the tragedies. I remember that I was supposed to rest after work, then pick up my kid at the end of the day. But I just needed to keep her near me. Even if she just took her nap & did her kid thing, I needed that child more than ever. My son was born on Nov. 8th, as scheduled. He is a triumph in the face of such devastation in this world. Today, as my children grow & play, I know that evil cannot prevail. I know, because I see God in the faces of the children and in God, we have hope. I will never forget.

  14. Welcome to Geocaching! You may want to post this on the West & Southwest forum. There's alot of mighty friendly geocachers around & I'm sure someone in your area is more than willing to help you! Good Luck! Mother Gootz Where in the nursery rhyme does it say Humpty Dumpty is an egg?
  15. Yes, it was a great game. Like millions of other people in the world, we enjoyed it from the comfort of our own home. Our son's first word was "Touchdown"! Well, that's our interpretation anyway...!! Where in the nursery rhyme does it say Humpty Dumpty is an egg?

  19. I've noticed a large number of caches in this area that the cache owner seems to have abandoned. This is not to say the cache is in poor condition always, but when checking owner profiles, I've found that MANY caches were placed by people who don't participate in the sport anymore. I'm not necessarily interested in adopting any of these, but I did find it curious. Any feedback from other areas of the world? Where in the nursery rhyme does it say Humpty Dumpty is an egg?
  20. I print decrypted cache pages all the time; no guilt here. It's a matter of choice. I cache with kids & as we have to manage short attention spans, I find it's best to have all my ducks in a row before going on a hunt. Where in the nursery rhyme does it say Humpty Dumpty is an egg?
  21. I drag my 10 month old and 3 yr old along on all my caches! They love going on "treasure hunts" & the 3 yr old gets to pick the trade items. I also started out solo, but my hubby soon got the geocaching bug & I even had to change our profile name! (Was Mother Gootz, now Team Gootz) Good Luck & Happy Caching! Time to go, baby's waking up from his nap! Where in the nursery rhyme does it say Humpty Dumpty is an egg?

  25. quote: Thursday my find streak was broken by not one but four caches that were labeled as 4 on the difficulty scale. There will always be some people who can hide things more cleverly than I can find them. I don't feel a bit sorry for you Marty! We were skunked by a 1/1 hidden by a four-year-old today! I'm so embarrassed, I shouldn't even post this! Good Luck ktjensen, It's just a game! Where in the nursery rhyme does it say Humpty Dumpty is an egg?
