Dirty Thieves

First of all, WOW!  It has been a while since I've dedicated any of my spare time to posting on this blog.  I apologize to any of my subscribers, but mostly I apologize to myself because that means I'm working to hard.  Anyway, on to the real reason for this post.

I'm on a geocaching hiatus, or vacation if you will.  Not by choice either!  I keep most of my geocaching supplies in a nice hiking backpack so I don't have to hunt around for things.  Well that backpack was on the back seat of my Jeep for a couple of weeks.  One night, somebody decided to make off with the aforementioned backpack.  Contained within was my GPS (yep!), a Schrade multi-tool, various swag items, some pens, paper, and other supplies.  I also had my Geo-Dog Tag attached to the zipper which was tracking my progress.  Luckily I didn't have anyone elses trackables in the bag or I would have felt really bad.

The total value of what was lost was probably only $150 or so but it really sucks!  I don't have the extra denero to buy a new GPS right now so I guess I'll just have to save up my pennies so I can buy that eTrex 20 that I've been eyeballing for a while now.

On the upside, this will give me some time to work on my new project -  Along with Geocaching, one of my other main hobbies is riding my dirt bike.  Sometimes I even combine the two!  I really love motorcycles and everything that has to do with them, so this prompted me to start a website on the topic.  I hope to share some of my knowledge, experience, and anything new that I learn with the wonderful people on the internet!  If you have a few spare minutes, check it out!  Post a comment, let me know what you think.  Don't worry, I take criticism very well. 

Happy Geocaching, hope to be back out there very soon!
