Be careful out there !!!!

Jeff, may want a lesson or two on this Geocashing. Have GPS but limited ability in its use. Will have with me at the GC. Geocashing means Cash flowing forth from the ground, Right? I'll bring a bucket to place the cash in!

Hi Tim !!!

Well I wish it was like that, I mean if there was cash spewing from the ground I'd never leave, but I'll help you the best I can. If you really want to geocahce you should get the geocache app for your mutated electronic device ( get the free one ) look for the c:geo app. Once you have that it will give you the ability to locate them, but then you have to look closely, the caches are not generally that easy to find, some of them are quite well hidden. Once we found a cache that was just an old 35mm film container and it was stuffed in the end of a dead cactus arm the only thing you could see was the light grey top of the canister and the only way you knew that it was the cache was that it certainly didnt belong in the end of a cactus branch.

Cheers !!!

But what was in the canister? Did you leave a slip of paper with your names on it as being a winner of that find? have tried that once, never made it.....circled and circled with the kids an hour or more and then it looked like the way in was to tread on parochial school grounds during school hours... umm, nope. several fun sites online to help locate other geocaches....will want to do more as it is a fun way to hike.

Hi Dave !!!

Yep Ill make sure that we send pics of the off-road extravaganza later today. Montana Mountain is about 15 miles SW of Apache Junction off of Hewitt Station Road in the Tonto National Forest and takes you to the edge of the Superstition Wilderness its about 30 miles long start to finish and an easy trail. We are taking our next door neighbors and lifelong friends Dave and Toni, Marcia and Toni used to work at the same hospital together back in the day when we still had to work to maintain the life we were accustomed to. Anyway Since they are new to Jeepin, I'll try to break them in right, and perhaps one day convince them that they should be towing a Jeep.

Cheers !!!

I'm sorry, Film Container, not sur what you speak of! My camera don't got no film! lol

I mainly use my gps to navigate the lakes at night so I don't run over an island in the dark. Also helps locate my trout lines in pitch darkness or fog.

Hey Marty !!!

Inside the canister is a log sheet and you sign your name and date, then on the geocaching app I enter it as well and it is recorded there also, sometimes we even leave a travelbug or pick one up and move it along. the geocache app gives you clues of what to look for and how big the cache is and who left it and all kinds of other info also. It is a great way to spend the day. And I have already checked, there are caches hidden along the way on the trail that circles Montana Mountain.

Cheers !!!

Tim,

In the old days there used to be cameras that you had to physically load the film, and then you maually had to forward the spool so's ya could take another picture, and of course in dem days ya had to take the roll of film to someone that processed that film for you. I'm thinking you should be able to remember dem dere days but if not then we may have lots more to discuss at the GC, and even at the rally in Myrtle Beach as well. But I'm positive I can learn ya some.

Cheers !!!

You old timers have such great stories.lol

Seriously, I would like to learn more. Have done a couple that were like beginner caches and very easy, therefore I really didNt learn much. If there is sites near Hot Springes like in the Ouchita Mountains, maybe a little jeeping and caching could be combined.

Les makes up ailments so Bonney will give him the key to the likker cabinet.

After leaving CL we are thinking about TN for a couple of days, then on to Kentucky. Will probably visit Louisville. We will definitely be going to Casey County to visit my 4th great grandfather's historical birthplace/marker in addition I hope to be able to visit with a distant cousin. Then onto Illinoi, not sure exactly sure yet where we will go there. We are going to the Hannibal area in Missouri so that I can do my geneology research in that area. Then will head to Lee's Summit to visit with my cousin and then head home. Will probably be home by the first part of June. Will leave in August to head out to the east coast for the Myrtle Beach rally. If you and Mary or anyone else is interested in the TN, Kentucky, Illinois part of the trip more than welcome to join us. I am only to do actual family research in Missouri.
Oh yea, we are also going to Indiana to visit Indianapolis and the race track there.
