I Know Where you HIDE your Cache

It's easy once you know where to look!
That tiny phrase is one of sweetness to a geocacher's ears. 
I hope this week I intrigued you a bit about our newest hobby, Geocaching!
If you haven't been following along every day this week, just scroll down and see what
Week #18 - LIFE'S simple pleasures - Geocaching is all about.
Although we've done it for only a short time, I stumbled upon a forum of Geocaching quotes that all made sense to me. You will find them scattered through this post and italicized.
I took the hard way in and the easy way out!
This one pictured above with the hubster is a DNF... did not find.  We'll have to go back there and maybe with more knowledge we will find the hidden cache!  Could it be in the drainage culvert, or in a fake rock????
If it weren't for Geocaching we would never have found this wonderful place.

Squish, Squish, Squish.... lots of rain days before, made this field on the way to the cache (cash) very messy.  But look at all of the beautiful sunshine!!
To hide is the beginning
To find is the result
To seek is the adventure
We plan on doing more Geocaching this year.  And I will certainly take more pictures!!! And log my adventures!   Maybe we will hide our own first cache.  And we will probably continue saying to each other as we walk past the same tree stump for the umpteenth time...
Is it gone or am I terrible at this??
It will make our Sunday drives a little better when we can say... We're lost, but we're making good time!

That can't be it! 
And I say, yes it can, (some are) hidden in plain sight. That bolt on the metal fence post(in the above picture) is the actual micro cache. Someone manufactures things like that with screw in capsules and heavy magnets so they can be used specifically for Geocache hides.  Is that crazy or what?  Crazy fun, for sure!!!
It surely has made us look at our surroundings a bit differently.  We almost can't drive by a cemetery and say 'Hey, wouldn't that be a perfect spot to hide a cache?'
I use multi-million dollar satellites to find Tupperware in the woods.  What's your hobby?
