I have been geocaching since April 2006 under the cleverly thought up name of ‘Donmoore’. I come from Northern Ireland and this is where the adventure started, connecting a bluetooth GPSr to my smart phone and following the arrow to some local site. The bug soon took hold and I started to upgrade my GPS’s from the basic to the paperless. The caching community in NI was small and there where not a whole lot of caches, I would consider it a great day if I found more than a handful of caches in a 50mile drive. I ran a couple of events to start a caching community in the country(it being such a small island one community was enough), these proved successful and the community there has been thriving. I left there 3 years ago and Came to Windsor, ON where my wife is from. I have continued to be involved in caching and I try to promote local caching communities as I believe this is the best way to learn the game, and the help from experienced cachers helps new people find caches and also know what is a good place or type of cache to hide when they are ready to do so. The other part of caching which I think is vital is being connected to local authorities, I believe this helps us build relations with groups that provide our “playground” and also lets people know that we are not doing anything sinister while poking around.
In the last year I have initiated a Monthly event in Essex county and also been involved as a regional Rep for SWOG.
I am involved in my church with youth and kids clubs and it is my Christian faith that gives me the desire to give my best to anything I do and have an attention to detail. This can also be seen in a couple of other hobbies that I have… I show my Bull-Mastiff and I am a keen(if not very good) photographer.
Cache you later
(oh and I love a pun!)
