The Daily Geocacher...
|At Indian Springs metropark in White Lake, Mi|
Starting in the month of June I began the lofty goal of nabbing a cache every day for the month of June. Not so challenging now that I travel 32 miles to work daily. This would have been a task if I was still working in Ann Arbor (less than 15 minutes away from home). I've settled for those quick "park & grabs" during lunch hours or virtual caches on the way home, while still going to the metroparks on the weekends which I prefer. I got into geocaching for several reasons, and daily geocaching for statistical purposes was not one of them. It can be consuming if you let it, but I figured that I would succumb to the pressure for this month and still go geocaching periodically on the weekends with the cache kids...like we intended when we began this adventure.

Lately, I've been bitten by the "Metroparks Geocaching Adventure 2013" series at the local Huron-Clinton Metroparks in southeast Michigan. There are 13 total in this series with a prize for completing them by December. So far I have 7 of these caches with 6 left to go. Each cache has a code on the inner lid to collect. When all of the codes are collected, you are prompted to send them in to redeem your prize. Here is a link, if you're interested in completing this challenge.
