Step 5: First to Find Challenge! You have now bagged 10-25 caches in the area (50% are virtuals the others are suburban 1/1s). You are determined to get an FTF and can't figure out why StayFloopy or BassoonPilot keep beating you to the caches... conspiracy theories form: Maybe they tip off NJ AdMin, maybe they have a PDA in the field and are constantly driving around waiting. Hmmm! Many possibilities...

 

Step 5a. After failing a few FTF you figure out how to get instant e-mails and then proceed to pass several people on a double yellow in Downtown Wyckoff just to beat stayfloopy and Outdoors lady to a cache.

step 22: every time you put on your workboots it's the same thing from your 4 year old...

 

"are we going out looking for that box in the woods?"

 

or, if they're 5.... "I'm not going geocaching! No way! I'm staying in my room!"

 

SLAMMMM!

 

Step 22a: While on a solo visit, your 2 year expresses stunned disbelief that his grandparents don't have a "GeePeeEss!!!" and then tries to introduce them to geocaching every time they take him to play at the park or park the car too close to a lamp post.

 

Ginormobaby had his first solo visit with his grandparents while I was at Geocoinfest and the only problem he gave my parents was about the lack of caching that week :D. Most of the time we get in the car, we're going caching, so it throws him for a loop when a trip doesn't involve caching.

Step 20: You travel further and further away to get to events. Now, driving to a cache or an event that is over 100 miles away is no big deal! :laughing:

 

Step #20a - You not only look forward to attending those 100mi+ away events solo (because the rest of the family doesn't want to drive in a car that long), but events are the closest thing you've done to "real" caching (you get to log a smilie at least) in months because you spend more time in local, regional, national forums then out in the field (step 14)!

 

Not that I am bitter! :huh: *sigh*
