Colorado and other stuff

I found my first cache in Colorado

A Birthday Walk With Sis

That's 9 out of 50 states... one day I may get them all. I don't exactly travel out of state a lot.

Since the geocaching app sucks now I don't do any caching. I might pay the $5 for the Cachly app, but I haven't had the urge yet.

February and beyond

I found 2 caches last month

15th East Rules!
What can brown do for you?

The first was in Lincoln City. I drove over for a coin show and this cache was near a public parking lot that I used to stop at a couple of shops.

The second was in Roseburg. I took the opportunity to find it while I was down visiting.

The main thing being that I had nice weather and took the opportunity to find these with my phone app. I haven't taken my real GPS out since Alaska. But now the classic phone app is being retired. The new app only shows "beginner" caches with a difficulty under 1.5 . You have to be a premium member to see all of the geocaches.

So essentially a hobby that I have slowly been giving up on has thrown another roadblock at me. I doubt I'll pay for a membership again

With that said, I also attended two coin shows last month. There will be a small show in Clackamas next Sunday and a big show up near Seattle the next weekend.

Starting off 2017

Looking over the site this morning I found a cache within walking distance. The sun is out and after having been stuck inside with snow and ice for so long it was nice to get out for a walk.

Ring-a-ling

Its not my favorite kind of find in a largely residential area, but it wasn't too bad. It was kind of tricky but I spotted it once my gesenses kicked in. I'm sure I won't find many this year but maybe I can reach 2500 with another 19 finds.
