Our first seminar is Geocaching 101. Kevin and I attended the seminar together. The leaders of the seminar are GeoGypsyrv. They did a good job. One of the new things Kevin and I learned is how geocaching started. After, the military started letting civilians use the GPS program May 2, 2000. A man named Dave Ulmer decided to test the system by starting the “Great American GPS Stash Hunt”and posted it in an internet GPS user group. The hunt began May 3, 2000 and has been going strong ever since. The Geogypsy’s told us about making our vehicle a trackable. I loved it so much we bought a trackable sticker for our jeep. This is what a trackable travel bug looks like. If you see it on our jeep write the number down. The number is usually on the bottom of the trackable.
At first, the lanyard was hard to make but then my new friend told me the secret. Learning to braid the lanyard is the hardest part. She was right. It helped that the leader Kathy was organized and helpful. I had a good time and a product I could use when I finished.
The Next Day
We left the fairgrounds for breakfast at Lumberjacks. They make a huge breakfast. The decor was so cute and the coffee mugs are huge. Then, we attended the Adventure Caravan seminar and Kevin won a backpack and a $50.00 gift certificate for a adventure caravan program. The adventure caravans program has so many trips my mind was boggled for hours afterward. Should we use a caravan company and do all the things they do? What if I don’t want to do what they schedule? It might be nice to have someone else plan the trip? Its so expensive? Maybe?
We attended seminar after seminar and met some nice people.
We have one more day left and I’m excited for the activities of the day.
Happy Rally Time!
