My first travel bug.

Thursday, October 24, 2013



Today I went out with my mom, like we do weekly, and did some more GeoCaching. For the first time in the year and a half we've been GeoCaching, we found a travel bug.

These are little tags with codes attached to a little thing, most often, that I've seen, toys. Now we get a reason to go out and place it in another cache. I was excited to see it sitting there on top of the log inside the cache. I don't know if it's because it's another element to the game we play out into the wide outdoors, but it's fun to find those things that are rare.

Another thing we found funny, we've been going out shopping afterward and we've been running into someone we know every week in random places for the last few. Today we stopped to say hi and chit chat. We found it amusing to keep running into her.

Now that I've hit 10,000 steps for the day, I still need to go do my exercises for my legs. I haven't been doing them as well as I should with no excuses. It's my body and my health that I'm ruining by not doing what will make me stronger.


Today's Holidays: Food Day, United Nations Day, World Development Information Day, Good and Plenty Day and National Bologna Day.

    We own several travel bugs and they are traveling the world. It is fun to watch their travels. We enjoy finding travel bugs and moving them on their way. Our geocaching name is CXSnSPV. You can check us out on the cacheing site. We enjoy Geocaching and it is a great exercise motivator.

    Does Goe catching stop during the winter once we have enough snow on the ground. This seems to get you a lot of steps for the day, good for you. It is fun seeing people you know when out and about, especially people you usually don;t see often. Do try and get those leg exercises in at least several times a week if unable to do them every day---it is for your strengthing that leg as long as you have the ability to do so, it will serve you well.

    Didn't know about travel bugs.... I wondered what the title meant! I can't do Geo=c ing as I have no gps and only a few in my area when I checked on line. Small towns. Ah well.
