RGBP Big Event: Geocache Internationale

Hi, The Typist here, with another interruption of the dogblog to share some more about the RevGals' Big Event. (I pull rank now and then; it's one of the many benefits of having thumbs.)

So... if you know The Vicar of Hogsmeade, you know about geocaching. Trust me: this is a good thing! Here we are near the start of our morning in Cozumel:

(That was the part where we were going the wrong way. Which was perfectly fine; after all, we were on an Adventure.)

Then we got closer to what we were hunting:


See that cap in the lower left corner? It's on The Vicar herself, our illustrious leader for this endeavor.

And, after much careful searching (along with some toes in the water and a nice rest at a patio table), we found the cache!


As you can see, serious geocachers never go barefoot while on the hunt. The rest of us were along for the experience, and a lovely one it was. (If you click for the larger version and look really closely, you can see will smama's blister a few inches from her tattoo. Both accessories were hard-earned.)

So, while it may be on The Vicar's official log, God Guurrlll, will smama, and I also share the distinction of being international geocachers now.

Thanks, Vicar!

great pictorial accompaniment for the telling of the story ... but no one will get that short of a telling from me! Thanks for being my "and company" international geocachers extraordinaire

I didn't know Jack (from Jack in the Box) was with us going the wrong way

He can be sneaky, that Jack...

Yes, NOTE TO SELF:
Adventure = sneakers, not sandals.

You go girl. How exciting. So are you going to go Geocaching while at the General Conf? lol

The Vicar of Hogsmeade said...

Ft Worth has several series of virtual caches around the museum district and a couple downtown

why, yes, I do randomly look up caches where there are people I know ...

the SportsQueen says I'm passionately obsessed and after the international geocache story she said "ecstatic" was not a big enough word for a description

Diane said...

I'm still not exactly sure what a geocache adventure is, but it sound fascinating. anything with the word "adventure". :)

This journey MADE my sermon so despite the gash that remains on the top of my foot, I am grateful for the adventure.

Princess of Everything (and then some) said...

I think that would be so much fun to get into!

And I know where another is here....*grins*...cause I was there when the guy set it up!!

Whine all you want, Deb!

Mindy, you and some of the others here might be interested in a new blog that's been launched for RevGals who are also geocachers!
