About This Item
I am Memfis of the Memfis Mafia. I belong to a family that likes getting outdoors. Our outdoor adventures take many forms – traveling, off roading, hiking, skydiving but mostly our stories are about our misadventures in geocaching as our way to navigate through life.
On 10/19/2009, We were introduced to geocaching by a family friend. At the time we lived in Memphis TN and our first introduction to the sport was a lamp post cache at a local church. The cache has been around since 2009 and still has yet to receive its first favorite point. You get the idea. I thought the concept of finding hidden treasures was really cool but considering the weak start, I lacked in being able to explain it to the rest of the family. We didn’t find any more and the idea of geocaching faded away.
It wasn’t until almost two years later on 07/01/2011 that after a move across the country to Colorado, we decided to give geocaching another try. I downloaded the app on my iPhone as we sat in a park and there was one very close by. The best thing that could have happened oddly enough was that we could not find the cache. This may sound silly but if you know our family you would understand. Not finding this cache was like issuing us a challenge. We went back to our app and looked for another cache.
By the end of the month we had logged 58 smileys and were pretty well hooked. Since then we have jumped into many aspects of the game and have stumbled in one way or another. Our mistakes are generally made from a equal mixture of enthusiasm and inexperience. We have continued to participate in geocaching and some other similar off shoots ever since and have had a blast.
We also blog in an effort to chronicle our family successes and failures in our crazy adventures. While may of our adventures start with geocaching they often end in interesting and unexpected ways. Hopefully, the stories of our mistakes will help you not repeat the same blunders. Even better, we hope that our stories of the fun we have had will inspire you to get out there with your families and friends. All things, whether they be geocaching, board games, traveling to a new location – they are all better with family.
Making myself a trackable is just another way for us to connect with geocachers wherever we travel.
Please only discover in person and put in your log where we were.
