Paul,

Just started.

Overall great fun and the people involved are really fantastic.

I used to be. But I'm actually pausing.

The first cache I placed that is still alive is Tollerort placed 8/9/2003.

My newest is Runway one five from last year.


For a travel bug from Nevada I found I made a little sight seeing tour through Hamburg. The gallery includes an alien organism.





The cache nearest to my home is near a russian orthodox church (foto).

perhaps I should grab that next.



For me geocaching is like inviting people to a walk where you don't know the exact place you will go. I never saw it as a sport of finding as many caches as possible.

Geocaching is a real fun for children!

Bu.

I used to live in that street, and walk by that church every day - it's beautiful. And I just remembered that I linked to pictures of it in this thread.

Yeah, I quite like it. I'll have to get in touch with my friends and see when they want to do some more.

Regards, Andrew

Ulf, I knew already that the world is small. But I didn't know that it's that small.

So, tomorrow, I'll find that geocache and make a link to the Ranch!
I think I will upload an older photo I made in winter. With snow, it even looks much more russian...




Yours,
Bu.
