What got you interested in caching?
My friend Tim (Sparky) got me started in December 2007. He called up the GC map and showed me all these things that were hidden all over Houston, and some that I drove by every day. We started hunting at lunchtime and after work and I was hooked by Day 2. My wife Pat still remembers the old pre-caching days when a trip to the store only took an hour and didn’t result in heat stroke, PI and big thorn scratches on my arms.

How did you decide on your caching name?
We moved to Texas in 2003 and that was the first time I tasted true BBQ. My son Bobby and I soon started searching out good places, so bbqbob2 seemed like a good handle. He never caught the caching bug, but we still enjoy a BBQ run to Luling or Lockhart to see my daughter Beth.

When you cache, what equipment do you use? (PDA, Garmin, Magellan, software)
I started with a Garmin blue Legend that Tim lent me, then bought my own and after a few hundred finds switched to a Garmin 60Cx. I’m an old school guy, and the 60Cx has gone from cutting edge to old school in just the few years I’ve had it. Love the accuracy and reliability of the unit, for me it’s one of the best things Garmin has done.

What got you interested in caching?
no muggle: My sister, bittybit, and I were headed to a weekend long training for Texas Master Naturalists. I don’t know where she heard about it, but she handed me a stack of papers and said she had found something that sounded interesting. Anyway, I read the whole stack of papers out loud to her while she was driving, the whole time thinking it was the craziest, stupidest thing I had ever heard. Why would anyone want to do this? Neither of us had a GPS except the cars navigation system, which will only get you so close. I plugged in the coordinates to one just down the street from my mothers house which turned out to be in the park we played in as kids. I could only get within a few hundred feet with the car. I looked but couldn’t find anything, still convinced this was a crazy, stupid thing. Then, Bittybit bought one of those yellow Garmins and we went back. Well, we found a film canister in a tree stump with a log that was so moldy it was basically unsignable and that was it.

What got you interested in caching?
cook cachers: Oh Captain, my Captain had some friends who cached and he thought it would be something we could do as a family. At the time our three daughters were 21, 19 and 12, so while the first two sporadically cached with us, the youngest has been avid from the start. “She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Mentioned” logs as cachin shark. Since the Capt. is pretty busy in real life, I do most of the Houston area caching and will be answering many of the questions in first person. Only references to “The Capt.” apply to him in any way and all other answers, stories, lies and insinuations are my own.

How did you decide on your caching name?
cook cachers: We were so excited after our first day out at Stephen F. Austin State Park near San Felipe where we had grabbed 3 caches. When it came time to log them, creativity went out the window and we just used the most obvious names available. Later, after seeing other more interesting cache names, we talked about changing, but decided ours was good enough.
