Mountain Rush ... In Search of Cache
We've been up here a few time before to say the least.  Every trip is different; never the same story.  This trip was no exception.  Several topics of interest dominated this winter's trip that seemed to have themed the weekend into an extra ordinary trip to remember.  4 wheeling is always at the top of the list of things to do but we had our sights on another point of interest.  Recently a few of us became aware of a sport surrounding GPS navigation called Geocaching, sometimes known as GPS Stash Hunt or Global Positioning Stash hunt.  The basic idea of geocaching is where individuals and organizations set up "caches" all over the world and share the GPS coordinates of these caches on the internet. Using these coordinates GPS users can then search out these caches.  A Geocache may be as small as a film canister with a log in it , known as a "micro", up to larger containers such as ammo boxes, plastic containers and even 5 gallon bucket size.  Caches large enough to contain objects may contain various "rewards" and geocachers exchange items left in the cache with items of their own.  The sport of geocaching is addicting to say the least.  A good GPS unit makes it all the more fun as you go in search of geocaches.  Our primary GPS units in use were a pair of Garmin Rino 530DCX that we had preloaded some local caches.  We also planned to stash a few of our own and then go in search for one or more that we knew about.  So Geocaching was on our minds but we still got in a little 4 wheeling, target shooting, poker and a ton of fun.
