"Nobody Knows It But Me"

There's a place that I travel
When I want to roam
And nobody knows it but me.

The roads don't go there
And the signs stay home
And nobody knows it but me.

It's far far away
And way way afar
It's over the moon and the sea.

And wherever you're going
that's wherever you are
And nobody knows it but me.

Friends,

I know Iíve been lax on updating the newsletter but most of you understand about spring turkey season and the affect on one who loves the woods. I had a week off during the season and had a few close encounters, but did not score. This doesnít matter seeing that I care most about being outside in the woods.

Trekking to ones spot in the pre dawn darkness can be a chore, even when you are in familiar woods. I have found the GPS a valuable tool. A cheep one can be had for a little more than a hundred bucks new.

Recently I came onto a sport, new to me called Geocaching. It can be a solo adventure or a group outing for you and the family. By going to
www.geocaching.com you can download/print out info and coordinates to a local cache (pronounced cash). With that info and your trusty GPS, (with back up batteries too) you are off to find the prize. Most caches are an old ammo can with a logbook for you to sign, some have a one-time use camera to photograph yourself or your troop, and some trade items. It is customary to trade one for one of these items. Other caches direct you to yet another location, and then on to another and so on till you get to the final cache. Most of the cache locations are in the deep woods and GPS receiver quality can by touchy. Another problem that you might encounter is bugs, have some spray on hand to repel any hitchhikers.
I hope that those of you that have a GPS and donít get too much use out of it check out this sport and get out there and enjoy. It will sharpen your skills as a navagator.Take your manual and read it well and also read the cacheís instructions well so you donít get disappointed when you misinterpret them, (and you will once or twice)

  Happy trekking,

  Tim
