more geocaching

We have been BUSY here at the Power House.
We have been out every day this week caching when Chris gets home from work. I just can't believe how much fun this is, and everyone is really enjoying it so much. I do have to say we have not been able to watch any of our shows this week as we have been gone searching. Today we found 4. I found 2 myself, and its a great feeling to find one. We actually found one today that had little trinkets inside. We took a Japanese coin, and left an American flag. Then as we were leaving a guy was outside his house and says.. "did you find it?" It was HIS cache and we got to chat for a few mins. He showed us his "travelbug" on the back of his car and how it works. It was really a great day. I am also excited that my sister Cassie and her family have started geocaching as well. Trysta found their very first one yesterday, and they found 2 more today. Way to go YAMAGUCHI FAMILY !! WAY TO GO TRYSTA !!

Chris and I are hoping to go to Yellowstone in Aug. with his parents, and I think that road trip may have just taken a different turn. I cant wait to geocache our way to Yellowstone. Well I think I may have food poisoning so I am off to bed, hopefully I will feel better tomorrow.

We watched a show, The Forgotten, a few weeks back and there was an episode where they were Geo-caching to find clues. Its basically like a treasure hunt, but there is no beginning and no end. Its nationwide so you just put in your zip code or where ever you are vacationing and wallah, you can go searching for caches.

Well, Chris has been talking about this ever since, and we went and looked for one with Carol and Jim over the weekend and couldn't find it. We were bummed, but had a great time looking for the cache. Well we found some out by our house and tonight we went and found our very first geo-cache. And now we have a little bit of an idea of what we were looking for. We expected something much bigger, but what we found was a tiny, 1 inch container that you open and sign the log and put it back.

It was really cool to finally find one. And upon searching online for other containers, this looks like it could be a TON of tricky fun. If this is interesting to you.. go to put in your zip code, and search the google map, and post about your adventure.

walk the walk

Ok, I have been saying for a while now that I want to get in shape and loose the weight. Well, it is now time to walk the walk. I went on a 2 mile bike ride today, and am taking Ashlyn on a 1 mile walk later, then tonight I plan on doing 15 mins on the Gazelle. I know thats not a lot, but its a begining. I am so out of shape, and I have asthma. In 1 week I will up my distances and time. I will take it day by day, week by week, and I will try to update my progress.

Go Me,
