1. What is your name?

2. What is your GC name?

3. What kind of GPSr do you use?
Blackberry Curve 8310

4. What is your favorite feature on your GPSr?
Using Geocache Navigator on my Blackberry, I don't have to have anything else with me, I am paperless. I can look at maps and hints and past logs, it has it all.

5. What is your best memory of geocaching?
Alot of my answers on this probably don't hold alot of water since I am only at 15 finds, might be interesting to do this again a year from now. Anyway, I would say our first find was most memorable.

6. What is the farthest from your house you've ever found a cache?
42.5 miles. I guess that is by 'how the crow flies'.

7. What is the hardest cache you ever found?
Hmmm I might say Bling Baby.

8. What is the most amount of caches you've completed in one day?

9. How did you get started in geocaching?
As documented on this blog, my Scout was going to do some orienteering and I Googled that and ran across geocaching, I was immediately hooked.

10. What is the silliest mistake you've made while geocaching?
Nothing too silly yet.

11. What memorable animals have you encountered on the trail?
So far, just a rabbit.

12. What is your favorite earthcache?
I don't even know what one is. :-(

13. When do you geocache most often? (Season? Time of day?)
Only been at this a month but I can tell you the most comfortable times in Houston are Fall and Spring. Late afternoon, evening.

14. Who do you usually geocache with?
My sons.

15. Have you ever logged a find on one of your own caches? If not, would you?
I haven't hidden one yet and I wouldn't do this.

16. What is the most consecutive days you've gone caching and had a find?
One, I think.

17. How do you feel about people who "collect" trackable items?
Trackable items? No way! Move it along. They probably paid money for it, it isn't yours to keep.

18. Is it all about the numbers for you?
Not at all. I know I don't have the time. I'm happy with whatever we have.

That this seems to be a really great community to be involved in. And that I get to spend time with my sons outdoors.
