So it has been like forever and ever since I have posted here. It seems like that long since I have gone caching to.
I guess I should spit it out...I am at a fork in the road.
I love geocaching with a passion, but awhile ago I had a bad experience and it got worse and then it got a little better and then it just got worse again so I just decided to back away a bit.

I have a condition and unfortunately things bother me a little more than others and it is harder for me to let things go or let them slide off my shoulders...also depends on who the person is who is doing or saying these things. Crazy I know. I also have 3 herniated discs in my back, syatica in my right leg all the way to my toes and my knees have just about had it. But seriously, that doesn't stop me from going for a FTF in the snow. :)

Anyhow, I just find that some people are either too competetive or too negative for my taste and unfortunately when I go to log my finds and read a negative or abusive log it really bothers me. Sure it bothers me more to have someone do that to me, but hey, whatever, but to have to read it on other peoples' logs to? Ya it just makes me wonder why I even bother, cause seriously...
I still have over 70+ logs to log and that is one reason it has taken me this long to do so. Sad I know. I miss going geocaching. I remember going to an event and it was sad to see that about 4 people stood there and chatter while the rest of the cachers really irked me. Funny thing was it was the same people/person who writes the negative posts :(

Anyhow...I decided that I need to get some pictures up and keep this going, so I gotta get caught up, cause seriously now, I have tons and tons of pictures and tons and tons of stuff to tell ya :P
So, I am off to pick up the kids but I shall return :)

Holy cow! This blog is actually still alive! :)

Nice to see you at least thinking about caching instead of putting it off all together.

Hang in there girl, don't let the few negative types keep you from your friends...all of us go through the pendulum swing of caching vs not caching..sometimes the swing is a little wider and it takes longer to return the other side. We'll be here when you're ready...

Hey girl
We all go through a break once in a while but get out there on a nice sunny day, do one nice walk to a cache and remember the thrill of I FOUND IT ! That's what its all about- the outdoors, the adventure and the fun of finding that piece of plastic hidden and full of treasures.

I was so glad to see your new post and so sad to see that you had a bad experience and that you're not feeling too great.

Big hugs to you, we're not all bad, try ignore the ones who are and hopefully I will see you on the trail again.
