Geocache Diet – Day 90

268 Geocaches Found – 608km on foot – 24lbs lost! I have been struggling with my diet lately even though I have been trying very hard to lose weight.  The exercise portion of the geocache diet is going very well and I am feeling a lot more fit then I was when I started.  My problem lies in the kitchen… Read more →

A Spectacular Monday Morning

I was planning to write about something else today but it will have to wait because…wow, what a morning.  I was up early getting ready for my morning geocaching walk when I decided to check my e-mail and sitting in my inbox were 3 new geocaches.  The best news was that two of these caches were located on a fantastic… Read more →

Geocache Diet – Day 84

I got into geocaching because I like to explore & discover.  When I was first introduced to travel bugs (or other trackables like geocoins) I thought that it was a cute sideshow act to geocaching but nothing I would take too seriously.  I have gotten much more interested in travel bugs and now I actively try to help any travel bug… Read more →

Geocache Diet – Day 81

246 Geocaches Found – 533km on foot – 24lbs lost! So far on the Geocache Diet I have written more about Geocaching and hiking and less about what I am eating.  The Geocache diet is an exercise challenge after all but in order to lose all the weight I am hoping to I have had to alter my diet.  I have been… Read more →

Learning to be a Camper

I have spent many nights camping in my lifetime but I have never really been a camper. I have always used camping just as an inexpensive form of accommodation. I have camped my way across Canada, throughout the Western United States, and our 14 month honeymoon included almost a year’s worth of sleeping in a tent.  All of this and… Read more →

Geocache Diet – Day 76

Have you ever been in a beautiful forest, an untamed beach, or anywhere that seems miles away from it all only to pass someone yakking on a cell phone?  What about the early morning nature walk where the birds are in full song and the person you pass is listening to their iPod?  I always think:  Leave the electronics at… Read more →

Reduce News Intake and Save Time

We have made a lot of changes in the way we are living since this time last year and most of these changes have gone exactly as planned.  I did not, however,  expect to go from someone who tried hard to stay in touch with current events from around the world to stopping paying attention to most news altogether.  I decided that this… Read more →

Geocache Diet – Day 73

For the first time since starting the Geocache Diet I experienced the thrill of finding a cache before anyone else.  Finding a cache before anyone is a competitive business and my daily schedule, the desire to go everywhere on foot, plus my natural lack of speed, does not make me very suited for the first-to-find (FTF) game.  The moment a… Read more →

Geocache Diet – Day 70

The streak is over.  After finding at least one geocache in each of the last 67 days yesterday I failed to find a single geocache.  I guess I should feel a bit disappointed that I was not able to carry the streak further but I am actually relieved.  Finding a geocache a day was never a goal of the geocache… Read more →
