GC7B68E Trifecta of Influential Figures (Virtual) In June, we posted a blog about focused geocaching and how it is often important to consider this strategy during family vacations. This is a process we have been working on but, in the past, have faltered in its actual application. This time we got much closer and I … Continue reading Geocaching Success While on Vacation
Like everyone else in the geocaching world, we were incredibly excited when we heard about a second round of virtual rewards to be awarded by GCHQ. We didn't waste any time registering for the lottery hoping our name would get pulled. We waited what seemed like months and then finally...the email arrived.

Our next adventure is quickly approaching in the form of a family vacation to Hawaii. Ever the planner, Kristi has been openly constructing our itinerary for weeks.

This year, we took a family vote and the decision was to … Continue reading Mafia Christmas in California!
Just by the numbers, 2016 was a very successful year in geocaching for the Mafia family - 1172 geocache finds, 65 geocache hides (mostly hosted events). As we looked back through some of our geocaching accomplishments to write this blog post, we quickly realized that the numbers didn't tell the full story. We had a … Continue reading 2016 Our Geocaching Year in Review

During our recent visit to Geocaching HQ, we dropped off a lot of trackables for other cachers. We also launched four new ones belonging to us. The idea for these is to race to Memphis TN where we will eventually go visit and retrieve them. Here is the write up we put on each of … Continue reading We launched some trackables…
Our family has picked up the peculiar habit of screaming out "Cacaw" when we make a geocache find. It started somewhat as a joke but it just didn't go away.
