The Enter Woods Loop series of 10 caches is up for adoption. This series was previously created / owned by ParkerPlus. It is located just south of IAH on a jogging trail around a business park and gets a lot of visitors due to IAH being nearby. I have converted most of the caches to berty tubes in the year I have maintained it.
Due to significant upcoming changes in my life I will not be able to do this series the justice it deserves, it is very easy to maintain and the area is safe (always joggers around)
PM me here if interested.
This weekend we went out and did the Lake Woodlands kayak series. It was hot and I baked a little, but nice, calm waters the whole way. And really different than most anywhere else. Mixture of nice big office buildings and retail, wild and pretty undeveloped areas, and really nice houses. Some of us went and slayed the 5/5 dragon at the far end of the lake, too. And there are one or two land based ones you can easily get out to get.
Some fish jumping. Lots of HUGE herons. Strange ducks I've only ever seen in The Woodlands that look like they came from the move Coraline. Was cool to venture up here and do these.
My son and I have been playing it. We go to parks, he finds the Pokemon, I find the caches, we both get some physical activity and the baby gets to see the sights or maybe run around as well. I don't feel as conspicious geocaching because I figure everyone else thinks I am playing Pokemon. Heck, sometimes I am. I really want some developers or gc.com to make a hybrid application that uses augmented reality for geocaching. It would be awesome if the cache appeared before you on your screen like the pokemon, and then you had to do something to open it, and then when you did, the caches had some kind of cool digital swag that you could collect, pass along, or use for some exchange to become more powerful in the game, like what happens when you go to pokestops.
