Hey! I'm back!! Slowly recovering from our move, Christmas and finishing 6 quilts by Christmas....
In the midst of caching 1 time a week and wanting to cache more we had a newbee e-mail us. It ended up that he is a free lance reporter for the Buffalo News. He mentioned one of our caches in his article....and at the same time said that the only disadvantage for family geocaching would be that the family would have to buy a GPS (I'm thinking any sport has an investment attached....soccer cleats, football gear heck how much does all that hockey stuff cost??). So I have been mulling over that and also wondering what my next quilt project will be.....and on top of that the regional club thing has been bouncing around.
So here are my ideas.
1. Have a Western NY cache event in say Feb, March....near my house is a free outdoor ice rink that is part of a county park. It has a very nice club house that is heated and has a kitchen. The club house is free to the public all winter long.
2. Post a time for cachers to come and then an hour or so latter open it up to the public. Sign up volunteer cachers to take potential cachers out.....This way the initial investement for them would be nill. I must say Fearless and the rest of my clan are all to ready to talk about caching. Even Sweety can go on for hours about it!
3. How about a photo quilt for the next geocaching quilt project?
Many cachers take pictures, don't know what to do with the px taken with the disposable cameras in their caches, take some of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen and hey the beauty of geocaching is discovering amazing places that one would not have seen had it not been for the sport....So perhaps a contest....I'de need 18 photos...ones voted the best could be in the quilt....and yes you can wash these quilts....
So HEY! Watchya all think? Any interest?
