How did you learn about caching?
Bosun: I first learned about Geocaching while browsing a web site on GPS navigating, which also linked to other sites and Geocaching was one. Just being curious I checked it out and then I found another use for my GPSr, which I only used on the boat for navigating in the fog.
What kind of equipment used (PDA, Garmin, Magellan, software)?
Bosun: Magellan 315 changed to the Magellan 330 land unit that was converted to a Marine 330. Presently use Magellan Platinum. Software used Mapsend streets, Ozi Explorer. Mapsend DirectRoute.

What are your all-time favorite cache/s and or adventure whilecaching?
Bosun: I'll have to say High-Five; this cache took me on an all time adventure. First I forgot to mark my start point, for I just knew where the cache was, and secondly I thought I knew a shortcut. After locating and logging the cache somehow I got turned around, bushwhacked to a well used path, then I thought to myself, (I said Self, this path had to lead to or from someplace) in hopes of getting my bearings right. So I hiked down the road for about a mile or so, then I came upon a usual looking object, it turned out to be A Bridge 2 Far cache. So then I was feeling pretty good then, a 2fer, preceded down the road for about 20 minuets, then I began hearing voices, then I thought to myself that I must be close to something. Voices got louder, and then low and behold it was Sam and a couple of other Cachers. Sam asked me where was I coming from and I told him High Five, after laughing hysterically he says man you are over 2 miles away, but just a short distance to the parking lot in the park. After the other Cachers found the bridge 2 far, Sam gave me a ride back to my truck, and to this day he never lets me forget it. So that was my most favorite and adventurous cache to date.

Do you have any other hobbies?
Bosun: Woodworking and inventing different kinds of cache containers to stump you all, other than that nothing else. I don't really have enough time.

Have any "Most embarrassing Geo-moment" you would like to share? Details please!
Bosun: While caching with Capt.J in Beaumont looking for the cache Quickie Cache #5 By Chance Encounter Mind you here, this cache is a micro and hid in a little chubby hole with room enough for 1 person, well I was the one who crawled in and Capt. J was standing by, after locating the cache we both exited the area. If anyone just happened to walk by and knew of the area would know it was not a likely place for two grown men to come out of, luckily no one else was around. But just imagine if there was someone was around, now that would have been a very embarrassing moment.

Bosun recieved the prototype headcase cache mid-day saturday for his prize. Congrats to Bosun!


Sorry CE, just haven't got around to posting a note about it. I'll get a post up on the frontpage a little later today... I've been waiting for his 5 questions so that I can post the article. I just might have to make up some answers for him..  >:D
CONGRATULATONS BOSUN on being September Cacher of the month  O0  :)
Bosun showed he deserved his award when he helped this newbe cacher go find her pager in the woods in a thunderstorm from hell (that fried my router and cable modem I might mention). They had found "In the heat of the night" and where almost back to the house in the pouring rain when she realized she had lost her pager. He graciously offered to go back and help her find it. When they got back he just said once you are wet you can't get any wetter.

I won't mention the name of the cacher from Pearland that didn't know her pager number out of respect, but on terracaching she is pagergirl now.
