Geocaching

 

What is that? Well, to put it short and sweet: a kind of treasure hunt using GPS. And tons of fun! It is just the right thing to get a lazy, fat nerd (like me) to get a little of physical exercise. Learn more from Geocaching.com or if You speak Finnish, Geocache.fi.

Due to our snowy and cold winters, geocaching in Finland is mostly a summertime hobby. In the darkness and on slippery paths and rocks there is always a threat to get injured.

I logged my first find on 23rd of April 2005, and from the statistics box below You can see my accomplishments. Number of found caches is very small, but I rarely take off just to go caching. The nickname "La Gatita", meaning a kitten, has a certain history. Nowadays it is a bit out of date, as my husband and geodog Jeppe are usually with me.
