How We Geocache With Our Boys

I have had a lot of questions regards How we Geocache with our Boys, and I have thought about it, answering here would be easier and I hope it inspires others to try.

We are no experts in the finding of Geocaches, and we have only been looking for hidden caches for a short while – we have meet other Geocachers who are have found over 10,000 hidden logs!! Which blows me away when I consider how little we have searched and found.

But this is how we look ::

We have the Free Geocaching.com app on my phone, and haven’t paid for the full membership as yet. So some of the caches I can’t access by the app on my phone, so I do a more in depth search on the computer before we head out of the motorhome exploring.

Geocaching in Bundaberg

I am not going to say exactly where in Bundaberg we have been Geocaching in the last week and a bit, only cause I don’t want to spoil it for others that also love to find caches.

But gee we are super glad to be back looking for hidden treasures, actually Kyle and I are the only ones that enjoy it! David and Cameron have no patience for hunting around to find the containers. So we are working out what to do with those two while Kyle and I escape for fun and games.

Geocaching In Bundaberg ::

There are so many caches on the map for Bundaberg – not sure if we will ever have the time to find them all, and super bummed that we didn’t think to check Geocaching.com before we headed from Bargara to The Lighthouse, because there was many caches along the way {even one at The Lighthouse :( }

But its been fun trying to work out how many we can do in one day – yesterday we managed to find five! Not bad for an afternoon of exploring. And we got to see a Historical Site that we never ever knew was there – actually I bet the locals don’t even know its there because if you blinked you would so miss the information about what used to be in the area.

The Tiniest Cache Ever ::

the following few pics are from our Instagram account because I didn’t have our camera with us, and I took them with our phone! Must always remember to carry camera, and Pen/Pencil when out looking for caches!

Kyle found this cache in Bundaberg

THE SMALLEST EVER? PROBABLY NOT BUT ITS TINY!

Shrek Looking After This Cache

HE LOVED THAT SHREK WAS THIS CACHES GUARDIAN ANGEL

Kyle finds another great cache with lots iinside

ANOTHER GREAT CACHE, WITH LOTS OF GREAT TOYS INSIDE!

This was all last weeks finds! Today I was smarter and had my Canon Camera with us, and got some great pics ::

Kyle with a Cache that I found

KYLE WITH A CACHE BUT HE DIDN’T FIND THIS ONE THIS TIME

So excited that I finally got to find one

THE FIRST TIME I HAVE EVER FOUND A CACHE

Muddy ground and sank in it to my ankles today

ITS DIRTY BUSINESS LOOKING FOR CACHES

Yeah I sank in the mud today! And it felt gross under my feet. Luckily in the back of our Campervan we carry water – actually it is our Shower when we go camping, which we hope to do very soon.

Kyle was over the moon to find this one

FINALLY FOUND THIS ONE

It took us three attempts to find this one! Very tricky cache, hidden well out of sight, but at the same time it made sense where we found it.

We have had so much rain

GETTING VERY WET AND MUDDY NOW

Kyle swaps toys

OH MY GOSH A BIG BOX OF GOODIES TO SWAP WITH

Kyle is such a “Giver” so he loves finding things in our motorhome to “Swap” with these bigger type caches. He loves gifting a toy to another GeoKid :)

Fields Are Flooded

WALK THIS WAY – WE HAVE HAD SO MUCH RAIN

We stayed out of  the water this time

YEAH NOT WALKING IN THAT

We stayed on the Road, looking for traffic as we went. There was no way either one of us was going in that deep puddles!

Finding another great cache

ANOTHER WONDERFUL CACHE THAT WAS SO OBVIOUS TO FIND!

Yeah it was dirty on the outside, but surprising enough it was dry and clean on the inside. Some of the caches we have found have been water logged and not able to write in the Log Book!

Great Size Cache

WE COULDN’T BELIEVE WHERE THIS ONE WAS HIDDEN

The Lid was on tight

IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE FOR US TO OPEN IT UP

The lid was on that tight that I had to take the container to the Road and gently tap it on the ground.  It took a couple of attempts before the lid was lose enough for me to un-do!

Finding something to swap with

KYLE LOVING THESE CACHES WITH SO MUCH TO CHOSE

Kyle keeps a Zip locked bag in our Campervan with little trinkets inside. And he has lots of fun swapping something for what ever he can find. Today it was swapping a smaller “Bouncing Ball” for smiling badges. Or something like that – we visited five caches so I can’t exactly remember what he swapped with at each one, but do know that he loved finding each cache.

The area we looked in had lots of caches placed by the same member. Which was so handy because we were kinda of aware of what to look for each time.

We are only free members of Geocaching.com – and we don’t have a GPS device with us, so we work with the co-ordinates that each Geocaching description gives us, and then use Google maps to help us out. Not the easiest or quickest way to operate Geocaching In Bundaberg but for us its Okay for the time being.

Maybe next Xmas/Birthday someone will gift me a GPS and pay for full membership to the website/App {hint/hint Kids/Hubby}

Have You Tried Geocaching In Bundaberg?

Cheers

New Life on the Road

Bargara to The Lighthouse

On Australia Day I wanted to cross off a Bucket List adventure that I have been wanting to do for sometime. Its a long walk from Bargara to The Lighthouse – one website said it was a 90 minutes walk there and back! Well I am sorry but we took 2 hours to walk one way. And it was so very hot by the end of our walk but so very worth it. David dropped us off at Bargara and went to The Lighthouse carpark.

Then he started walking towards us – we actually meet up with him sooner then he expected and was shocked to see how much we had walked. After wards we thought that we could have easily walked there and back, if it wasn’t so very hot mind you.

Yeah we got burnt that day but gee we had so much fun.

Riverside Parklands Bundaberg

Last week, or was it the week before? Can’t remember as time is going fast! We went into a Homeschooling event at the Ice-skating rink, and then afterwards to the Bundaberg Library.

Our next stop was lunch, which we buy from Targo Bakery as they have the best food for prices in the town of Bundaberg. Cameron loves his Sushi from there, and Kyle loves his Pies! I have tried their Vegetable Pies which are delicious even though they are not gluten free.

We did take away, and headed to Riverside Parklands in Bundaberg to eat lunch, and then to explore the water walk ways.

New Years Eve Bundaberg

We went into Bundaberg for New Years Eve! Can’t believe I still haven’t shared our night till now, talk about the year going bye far too fast 😉

We sat in our Campervan, backed it up to the Burnett River, and sat waiting for the Fireworks. Having dinner together, and playing! It was amazing to think 2015 was finishing and 2016 was about to begin. We have done so much in the last year, and we have so many plans for this year! Can’t wait to share what we have in store for our next adventure – its going to take a lot of planning thats for sure.

Let It Rain

We are singing! Let It Rain, Let It Rain, Let it keep on raining because we need it here. Instead of “Let It Go” its now our theme song for around these parts of Australia.

Being on tank water, and watching the Dam water drop {the dam is for the gardens and flushing the toilets in the two houses on the property} we have been very concerned about the level of both tanks – oh and the pool takes 1/2 tank to refill each time!

Yesterday David came home from work and we were over the moon to spend some much needed quality time together.

Happy 14th Birthday Cameron

Its been awhile since we all celebrated his Birthday but I have only now started to look back on his Pictures and reflect on his special day.

I have shared his special Birth Day before, and can’t believe how much he has grown! He is getting taller {finally} and is turning into a young man. The hormones have kicked in, yeah we are looking at boxing classes/Karate Classes to help with the excess energy.

This year we had their Cousin Brian with us {he was visiting Grandma/Grandad – we organised him to come up as a surprise} and of course Cameron asked for his Favorite Dinner and David cooked him a wonderful cake. We did forget Candles, but we did sing Happy Birthday.
