NEW IN CHAMPION FOREST AREA

11 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

Hi,

I am CajunAbear and just moved into a house in the Champions Forest Area. I have been caching since 2007 when I found my first cache in California on a business trip. I am just over 3000 finds. My wife geocaches with me for safety sake. I like to team hunt with others for safety, extra eyes, and just good fellowship.

I am a GIS mapmaker and Registered Land Surveyor in two states (not Texas) and I volunteer in Scouting as a Surveying Merit Badge Counselor.

Work keeps me hopping these days and I do NOT geocache as much as I like. That said, I try NEVER to turn down a team hunt offer when I am afforded that opportunity.

My Geocaching 2nd Hobby is to make maps for other Geocachers.

I will wait on that subject to be another post.

I have attended only a half dozen events in the area since I started work here in November 2011, but I thrilled to find the enthusiasm and good people here as I have found in all my geocaching adventures.

Having fun and making memories.

CajunAbear

Welcome to Houston. I'm on the north side (Conroe) and perhaps we can get together for some caching one of these days. There's certainly no shortage of caches to hunt in your area.

Welcome to Houston!!!

Especially welcome to the Champions Area!!!

I am new to geocaching but have been in this area for a while. If you haven't tried the Warrior series by TexasWriter yet, you should. Its a great series that starts by Willowbrook and goes into Cutten Green. Great little series for our area and might keep you busy for more than one afternoon. CarGuy and I started last week but haven't finished yet. (Off topic I am BedGirl and my Hubby is CarGuy).

Maybe soon we can meet at an event around this side of town. Being new to Geocaching myself not sure how to meet or join up with other geochachers in my area. (other than bumbing into one, which hasn't happened yet)

Again welcome to the area!!

Welcome all! Keep an eye on this forum, BedGirl, especially the "Metro Mash-ups" area. Meet-ups to go caching in certain parts of town are publicized on there from time to time. Caching with a group can be a lot of fun!

BedGirlCarguy87 - Welcome!

I'm not sure if you are a 'premium' geocaching member or not. If so, you should be receiving weekly newsletters which will advise you about events in the area, new caches... the newsletter is one way to ensure you see all of the happenings as we don't always post this information on HGCS.

Hey, I think you made it to one of the few Will Cache For Foods that I attended.   I remember the map you had.  It was very cool.

 

Welcome back to the game.  :)

Thanks.

Been meaning to go to another one of those events.  Once family moved here and worked kicked in, things became a blur. ;D
