How and why did we start Geocaching?

We (DaddyDippy and myself) were looking for something new that we could do together. Our evenings were becoming repetitive; our weekends were uneventful. A local, free parenting magazine had an article on the new 'geeky' sport of geocaching. It looked ideal. Both DaddyDippy and I have always loved being outdoors, we like a bit of technology and we both enjoy being fit. We've also happened to breed a small mountain goat who goes by the name of 'BabyDippy'. She is 5 years old and her idea of heaven is living in a tent, on a beach and eating olives. She just loves to be outdoors. We recently added 'TinyDippy' to the family. He doesn't get much choice in where he goes as he is pushed about in a buggy.

We signed up on the geocaching website; we had to pick a user name so we picked the name that BabyDippy had been calling herself for a while. She is currently obsessed with all things dinosaur! Daddy became DaddyDippy, I am constantly known as MummyDippy and TinyDippy, well... tiny is a word that one could never describe him with!

We were then all set and ready to go apart from a small oversight- a GPS device. Luckily there was a basic one on my mobile phone. Now we were ready!
