Geocaching is fun!!! My dad has gotten addicted to it and we've had plenty of close encounters with nature or cars or people. One time that I will never forget is when we went looking for this one down by the river. We were following the trail that leads into a grove of trees when I saw my dog perk up at something beside the trail. I decided to go check it out. Luckily for me there was a fence and I looked over and down the little hill there. And I saw a furry little creature walking threw the bushes with black and white stripes!!! It was a skunk!!!! Well, I showed it to my mom and then we decided that we better move along really fast. So we took off, and we found the geocache. While we were exchanging stuff...we found a travel bug btw...we heard rustling down the trail behind us. We look and it's the skunk!!!! Well, you've never seen people hide a geocache so fast in your life!!! We hid it threw the bark on top and took off running!!! There was no way that we were going to get hit by the nasty stinky spray of that skunk!!! :oops: We made it back safely and summarized that skunks can move pretty fast considering how far away we were from the first sighting! Moral of the story? Well I'm not quite sure there is a moral to this. Just watch out for skunks!!!

I saw a skunk at night once. It was right after View Southern, after the concert monday night. They had just handed out a bunch of frisbees and I was walking along the sidewalk when I saw a little animal walking on the hillside. I was really tempted to try and peg it with the frisbee but decided against it, considering I don't know the range of a skunk.

Hey Nate,

I was going to take the geocoaching honor at my conferences leadership retreat last weekend. But :oops: I became ill and had to stay in bed most of the morning. O well, several of my friends had fun taking it. :)

Hey Nathan, we meet again... hehe
I don't geocache, but thanks to him, I know where many are in the Collegedale area. I think I'll stick with biking though...

I'm gonna let Super_nate explain this one... I couldn't do it very well but he sure could. I just know it is like a high tech treasure hunt...

Geocaching is the use of GPS to locate different objects and logs (used to prove that you have been to that cache).

My favorite honors include any camping honors, photography, and video. I have more, but I would have to look them up to remember which ones they were.

Biking isn't on the list. If it is, it's at the very bottom. :mrgreen:

My favorite honor was backpacking! :D I organized a trip on the Appalachian Trail, and we had 17 people come! It was super fun, especially meeting the thru-hikers! We did about 21 miles in a weekend, not much I know, but we had some little people too. :) It's always neat to stop at the shelters and read the guestbooks... we read about ourselves at one shelter! :o I've had lots of fun with other honors too, with the soap one I carved a really cool kayak, and with the baking one I made bread and a cake for everyone, and with the Indian Lore one we did a whole Indian campout, where we dressed up all weekend and had a tipi! :D

You have been on the AT. Cool.

I recently got into Geocaching. I got my first cache found about two weeks ago.

Yep, the AT is cool! 8) We're in the process now of planning the week long trip! :lol: What was in your geocache? I'd like to do that some time. :D

The cache was a micro cache. All it had was a paper log for you to put your geocache.com username and the date.

Digital Photography will probably be much like its' cousin, Photography. I think I will be able to take care of that honor quite quickly as photography is one of my many hobbies.

Cycling Advanced. What a fun honor. It feels really cool to do a century. ( a one hundred mile ride in one day) It's even more fun when you can share that experience with four of your friends. I really suggest doing honors that can be done with a small group of friends, it makes it a lot more fun.

Oh, I want that honor. :P Maybe I'll work towards it this summer. Any tips or tricks? Isn't it not nessisary to do the ride in just one day? I think the honor says to do a 100 mile in 2 or 3 days... :?
