Georeyna of Houston, TX.

What got you interested in caching?
Georeyna: A neighbor of mine, The Popeteers, got me interested in caching. It took her a couple of months, but after she lent me her Garmin and took me to some of her caches, the rest is history. I was hooked. She had to even remind me a couple of times to get an account, log my finds!! I experienced a whole new world, geocaching, and I knew I was hooked.

How did you decide on your caching name?
Georeyna: My caching name was decided by me. I wanted to include my whole family, so I came up with the name Georeyna. Will that worked for about a year and a few family members have fallen to the way side, so at the moment the name represents me, and at times family when they know a great event is on its way (like the Spring Fling), fun caches for kids, or a daytrip, then the rest of the family is involved, but the name is representative of me about 99.9% of time.


When you cache, what equipment do you use? (PDA, Garmin, Magellan, software)
Georeyna: When I was featured cacher a few years back, the use of any equipment was minimal. Bacically a Garmin and great knowledge of the city had to do. I was even caching like Nebulus703 and would walk barefoot to a cache but of course I was a mile off and on someone’s private property.Today I use the iPhone, Oregon, Colorado, 60csx and nuvii. Yes, I have them all at my disposal and use them at various times while caching. But I assure everyone, I do not *Mark Waypoints* with the iPhone!!

What are your all-time favorite cache(s)?
Georeyna: I have three. The first was the House Series that I had a chance to hike with Raven. Each cache was unique and I was so amazed at the workmanship placed in all the caches and it was fun to have a good friend along. The second was the GW8. I went with Kirbydox, Fendmar, Nov64 and met others at the event. We had a great time and even got to meet Maxwell’s Hammer’s son, who really gave us an opportunity to see Seattle from downtown. It was amazing. (Got a quick pic with Jeremy too!!) Last, the E.T. Highway, which I got to join Rich and Lola and Kirbydox. We had a lot of fun, we found out we could work as a team. There were times we doubted ourselves, but we kept going. Rich ran over my foot about 3 times, but hey, I am still walking. Maybe that explains why I fall down so much!!

Do you have any special caching adventures you want to tell us about?
Georeyna: I had the opportunity to do the APE Cache while in Seattle. I had so much fun climbing up to the top with my friends…observing the beauty of the cache and its bounty, the beautiful mountains around it. It was awesome. Having my geobuddies by my side while we observed the beauty was the cherry on the sundae. It was amazing.

Have any "Most embarrassing Geo-moment" you would like to share? Details please!
Georeyna: Embarrassing moments and I go hand in hand. My most recent most embarrassing moment is I did the Smile Series with Rich and Lola. The first time I fell, Rich and Lola chuckled and made sure I was ok, second time questioning whether I was drunk but Rich came over and picked me up, third time, they were too tired to care and just made a decision that I was a klutz. Lola was very cute and yelled to Rich *She fell down again!*. Rich was so tired he could not even come up and *pick me up again*… I was on my own.

What is your favorite type of cache (traditional, multi, puzzle) and why?
Georeyna: I love them all. I can not really pinpoint a favorite. Lately though, I have been into completing challenges, like the *county* challenge and others. Nov64 got me interested in that, so that is my next goal.

What is your favorite local cache?Georeyna: I have many favorite caches but I will give Kudos to HoustonControl and his BNC caches. I love the area and appreciate the hard work he put into every cache. I can’t say it is a cache, but the BNC Series are my favorite caches.

How about your favorite out of state cache?
Georeyna: I recall a cache I did with the geofamily while at GW6 in California. It was a puzzle cache and one had to go to the graves and solve questions about the deceased. The graves dated back to when California was being discovered and people were making it home. Once we finished that cache and got the cords, we were lead to a box that was a bit deceptive, until you realized you needed a key to gain entrance. We found the key, slyly hidden and claimed the cache. The cemetery was very old but the creativity was awesome.

Summer or Winter caching? Why?
Georeyna: I like cache 365 days of the year. Why, because I get to experience the outdoors, spend special moments with my children, friends and alone. Geocaching is very therapeutic and helps me exert energy, think about tasks, family and my life.

When a new cache is listed, are you tempted to go for FTF?
Georeyna: Heck No!! Have you seen the FTF’rs out there, I am afraid that I will go into a *death roll* and lose. And I do not mean a death role with one FTF’r, it could be 5 of them!!

Tell us about your cache mobile.
Georeyna: Stucky? Yes the *ole Stuck Bucket* as Team Four Paw so proudly baptized it. Stucky is not a 4wd, but I treat him like one. He has been dinged, wrecked, keys locked in him, new tires but basically has kept up with me. Stucky has made my geofriends cringe when I am trying to 4 wheel, but hey, Stucky has not let me down and he is a 2002 Chevy Tahoe. I am gonna keep him till he I am at his side and I am saying goodbye. That could be when I finally roll down a creek bed and he has been totaled but all I can say is I have good times with *Stucky*.

What other hobbies do you have?
Georeyna: I love to Needlepoint and have done many projects. Really we are called *Needle Artists* because of the different mediums we use on the art. It is not just thread anymore, it could be wire, beads, ribbon, buttons and other items. It is not your grandmother’s needlepoint!!

Do you currently have any caching goals that you are working towards?
Georeyna: I would like to complete the County Challenge, thanks Nov64, and the *I have been everywhere.* challenge. I hope to complete the *I have been everywhere by the end of summer*.

Is it all about the numbers?
Georeyna: At first yes, now NO. Everyone whom I was in competition with have about 500+ caches more than I, except HoustonControl, so I guess our competition is still going!! Oh, um HoustonControl, we are still in competition, just FYI!! LOL!!

Thanks for this interview. Is there anything you would like to add?
Georeyna: Yes, I am coordinating the Texas Challenge 2011. I love caching so much, I decided to take on the TC2011 and have been blessed by wonderful, and I mean wonderful, team to assist me. The team consists of ATMA, Maxwell’s Hammer, Agnav, Scrapnphoto’s, GSGuru, and my *calm yourself down* co-coordinator TexasDreamweaver. The challenge will be fun, with all the Type A Personalities I am dealing with, this promises to be a challenge to remember, even better than GW8. I want to thank everyone who has helped, who are dedicating themselves to certain committees and who are helping all because we have one thing in common, geocaching. I have truly been blessed with wonderful friends and I thank and appreciate all of you.

Hooray for you!

I guess it is time to change my password. I didn't post this article this evening. At 7:09 this evening, I was nowhere near a computer.

I changed a setting and the articles are being reposted in the news board... Automatically. Not intended but no harm done.

Well sometimes it is cool to look back and remember the fun and all the smiles. Thanks! :peace:

It really is. That was a fun program.

No problem Jason. :)
