+ArtieD Posted November 26, 2007 Share Posted November 26, 2007 (edited) Hey gang...with Thanksgiving passing us by a mere few days ago and many people giving thanks for what they have, I thought a cointest was in order that was kind of similar. CastleMan ran a cointest similar to this in the geocoin chat and it was a great way to get to know each other, so I'd like to try it here. You're playing for my VERY LAST copper trade-only LE personal of mine. The rules are simple: Post why you geocache and what positive things or experiences you have gained from caching. I'll begin... For the longest time, I used to drink quite a lot. I mean a LOT. Well, it made me into a complete rear end (some would argue I got that naturally, but hey! ) and I was not a good family man at all. Well, I'll quit beating around the bush. I was an alcoholic in the worst way. Anyway, one night I was thumbing through the Subaru "Drive" magazine and found an article on geocaching. I read it with my wife and we decided that it would be a fun thing to try. We checked the GC.com website for the first time and lo and behold, there were caches in our own town! Anyway, we bought our first GPSr...a Garmin Etrex Yellow...and the rest is history. We, and I most especially, were hooked in the worst way. From then on, geocaching has been my very positive outlet for energy I would have devoted to more destructive activities. Without it, I really don't know where I'd be. I will let this cointest run until 10:30 P.M. Central Time. The winning post will be chosen via random number generator. Depending on my mood, I may also give away another item to another poster. I hope you enjoy this chance to get to know one another. Edited November 26, 2007 by Arthur & Trillian Quote Link to comment
