So, this is us on the amazing beach front property of ClubHotel RIU in Negril, Jamaica. No, I didn't have my shirt on the entire time... we were just on our way to grab some lunch and took a quick snapshot. :)

Amanda and I tied the knot on May 1, 2005 in Austin, TX. Afterwards we spent a week in Jamaica at the ulta-all inclusive ClubHotel RIU. We had an amazing time there and really enjoyed the resort.

JeeperMTJ's Travel Bug Info. Sheet


Use this Word document file to help let others know what you travel bug is and where its going.

Geocaching Introduction

TXGA has produced a quick introduction to Geocaching to provide to land owners, city park officials, or interested friends. The presentation is done in Flash so you can view it from any Internet Explorer browser session.

Travel Bug Passport


Texas Geocaching Association (TXGA) offers a printable (PDF) Passport to accompany your travel bug on his journey. The goal: to eliminate the need for a Travel Bug graveyard.

Travel Bug Graveyard

GC72A8 Travel Bug Graveyard by scooterj

They are gone, but not forgotten. This is a place where owners of travel bugs that have "passed on" may bury and memorialize them. This gets deceased bugs off the cache pages as well as out of the owners' hands; while still maintaining the history, logs, and finds for the bugs. Visitors and mourners alike may come here to visit and read the life stories of bugs that have been laid to rest.

Downloading this now and will see how well it stands up against EasyGPS. Apparently, it has a lot more features. I'll post more once I've installed it and have kicked the tires - so to speak.

More pictures from today's cache find.

This is a test post from Hello from Picasa. This photo was taken from our recent trek to find HTGA Leftovers.

NTGA Leftovers Cache Found!

Amanda and I went out again today. What a better way to spend New Years Day! We discovered yet another section to the Emma Long park system. The Turkey Creek trail is absolutely amazing! As you can see from the photos below, the are some stunningly beautiful scenes all along the creekside trail system.

We actually found this cache en route to UncleRejelio's Recycled cache; which we never found. Nonetheless, we had a fantastic time and will certainly add the Turkey Creek trail system to our Austin living.

Recipe for Success Cache Found!

Amanda and I went out again yesterday (New Year's Eve day) and located the Recipe for Success cache. This cache's theme, as you may have guessed, is a recipe-swap. We took a neat recipe for no-bake cookies and left one for my world-famous 3-bean, 3-meat Guiness chili.

Here's some pictures from the trek:

Gone Geocatching Dash Card

Most cachers know to take a way point of the position that they parked a vehicle so they can find their way back to it from the cache spot. However, what do you do in the event of an injury while seeking your treasure?

I've created a Gone Geocaching Dash Card for use when you've left a vehicle in search of a cache. The card serves a couple purposes:

1. Notifies authorities that you've not abandoned the vehicle and as such, should prevent you from coming back to one of those nasty yellow stickers on your window - or worse: finding your vehicle has been towed.

2. In the unfortunate event that you've had an accident and have not returned to the vehicle in a reasonable time period, the dash card includes information about the coordinates of the cache you're seeking and emergency contact information.

You can download the form here.

You'll have to have the Adobe Acrobat Reader which can be downloaded from www.adobe.com.
