Geocaching Resolutions RevisitedJan 01, 2009

Last year around this time we made a few resolutions related to Geocaching. Today, New Year’s Day, as the blizzard outside blows into its 19th hour we thought that it would be a great time to review them and see how we fared.

Geocaching Resolutions Revisited

The first thing on the list was that we wanted to introduce more friends and family to Geocaching. Although we talked about Geocaching all the time, telling them about our travels, our exploits and all the great friends we met we couldn’t interest any of them into going out with us. :( It wasn’t that we weren’t being persuasive enough (we tried everything short of kidnapping them!), we believe it had to do with a lack of time on their part. This is unfortunate but we resolve to keep on them!

The second thing on our list was to become more competent with a compass. This is a funny one because we don’t believe we took our compass out all year! We’ll have to revisit this one again. :)
