From the Bottom of My Heart
In Utah, United States
How Geocaching Works
****This is the only jeek that is left from the below described Mom/Heart Series. The ranchers in the area were working with us after some discussions and modification of the placements until somebody damaged some of their fences that they paid to install and maintain. They were convinced it was done by geocachers and they threatened to sue and harrass us unless we stay away from their fences. So in the spirit of the game, I archived 99 of the 100 jeeks. Even though the vast majority of the jeeks were nowhere near any fences, the Mom/Heart just wouldn't look right without all the jeeks in place.
This 100 jeek series is dedicated to all Moms, and to all who have Moms, and to all who had Moms. It signifies Mom is in our Heart.
This is meant to be a walking series, whether you walk with your own feet or the feet of a beast. I can't prohibit you from using a motorized vehicle and tearing up the natural desert, acting environmentally irresponsible, and giving geocaching a bad name, but I can certainly suggest you respect nature and tread lightly.
Be prepared to go over (or under if you prefer) several barbed wire fences. This is public BLM land that the ranchers have permission to use, but the fences are for keeping the cattle in, and are not to be used for keeping people out.
The containers are 6" long, PVC pipes with caps on both ends. The log is rolled up within a waterproof inner "Jeek Tube" purchased from JeekGear.com. I have tried to make each one an easy find with the intention of not having to search for them, although the ones closer to the roads and trails may be hidden better. Be sure to screw the cap on snugly.
I recommend using the "From the Bottom of my Heart" jeek for detailed logs because I expect most will cut and paste the rest. The "From the Bottom of my Heart" (GC2ZT6A) e-log will serve as the main log for writing the story of your adventure, where you came from, how long it took you to do it, notes, questions, discussions, etc. That's the main jeek I suggest you put on your watchlist.
Now for the warnings part:
You can die from the dangers inherent geocaching, so be safe and careful.
Take plenty of water and energy food.
Weather can change quickly, be prepared.
Leave a note with someone and put a note on your car.
Waypoint your car and use the horizon to stay oriented.
SPOT, Never leave home without it.
This whole "MOM HEART" area can use just a little bit of JITO, That's "Jeek In, Trash Out". So if everyone just packs out one piece of trash, one can, one bottle or one clay pigeon, after a season, we will all have made a big difference.
Now back to the fun part. Enjoy yourself, look up from your GPS once in a while to savor the beauty of the desert, call your Mom, tell her you love her, show her your "Mom is in my heart" smilies, take care, have fun, log your adventure, and always remember... Drink til you're hungry, eat til you're sleepy, sleep til you're jeeky, jeek til you're thirsty, repeat.
