+keewee Posted March 31, 2011 Author Share Posted March 31, 2011 Hello all, I am one of the threeamigoz. The other threeamigoz are my hubby and 4 yr old son. We live in Bend Oregon. The hubs works in a paper mill in the valley, and I am currently going to school for nursing. I also work at a cafe twice a week. With that said we really do not get alot of time to go out and geocache, but we always try! We got into geocaching when I stumbled upon one while metal detecting. I found this container, wrapped in camo duck tape, hidden in a bush. I pulled it out, opened it up and started reading all the logs. I couldn't figure out what everyone was writing! TFTC, TFTF, FTF, left car, took toy, and so on. I decided to write our email in there, with a quick note saying what is this? Some kind of secret club? I put the cache back where I found it and wondered for awhile. After months of no emails, it finally dawned on me! Geocaching! I Heard of this one day, but couldn't remember where. Google came to the rescue! I read all that I could find on it, and talked my hubs into buying me a GPS. One week later we were off and running. My son loves it, and he begs to go all the time. I also got my sister and brother in law into it, and now we go on caching trips! It has been almost one year, and I'm so glad to have found this very addictive sport. It has taken me to places I would never known existed! My question is, how do you control yourself from buying every coin out there? Hi threeamigoz, Thanks for the great story, it was a nice read. My question is, how do you control yourself from buying every coin out there? LOL - some people don't control themselves, no really - there are one or two... It can be quite hard to stop yourself from buying every coin you like. What a lot of people seem to do now is settle on a theme and only collect geocoins that relate to the theme. Or just buy the ones that really, really interest you. It can be hard to do, but you need to discipline yourself. I did know some people who'd set themselves coin buying budgets each month... but I think they often broke those budgets. Opps! Quote Link to comment
