Day 63 - Geocaching!

#1 Find 132 Geocaches (was 24, now 27 of 132) So one of the many first questions I get after seeing my list is "geocaching, what the hell is that!" So if you are one of those people, this post if your you. Geocaching is most often described as a "game of high-tech hide and seek." The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors using provided coordinates and your GPS. The goal is to get people off the couch and explore their community and grow a stronger support and appreciation for the environment. There are over 820,000 active geocaches in over 100 countries around the world right now.  Now, most containers are simple tupperware containers or ammo boxes (like you see in the picture above), but others are a little more creative. Here's some of my favorites:

This one Michelle and I found in a park only 10 minutes north of Marist's campus along the Hudson. Now you can see this one was a traditional ammo can, but it was rigged with one of those musical greetings cards, so when you opened the box it played music. 


This one was a rock. At least it looked like a rock, but it was actually cement that you could open up and find the tupperware inside! The first picture is taken from an angle so you can see where it opened...but you can imagine from the top how difficult it would be to figure out.


This one was on the beautiful Dutchess Community College campus, and definitely one of my hardest finds. The first picture small section of a huge electrical box by their athletic field. However, after accidentally moving it, I noticed...



But the gold metal for most creative, but most difficult cache container goes to one I found camping about an hour north of Poughkeepsie. See the acorns up in the tree? Apparently not your average acorns...

So once you find the geocache: do you put it back, make your own and pay it forward? who makes the coordinates & what happens next!?! such a cliffhanger.. :P

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I feel good, I begin take up real income.
It's all about how to select a correct companion who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the income with me.

You may ask, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
