WHOA! What's This!!

What's this? What's this?
There's somthing on his leg
What's this?
It wasn't there at the HAG
What's this?
I can't believe my eyes
I must be dreaming
Wake up, cachers, this isn't fair
What's this?

Hi folks! I just had to use the lyrics from the song "What's This" that was featured in Tim Burton's A Nightmare before Christmas to introduce this blog entry!!
So what is this eh!? Well that is my Travel Bug nicely tattooed to my leg by my best friend (and Bestman) Mark!

Geocaching is more than just something that I do. It is a way of life for me, and something a bit deeper than that.
You see for eight years my butt was tied to a computer chair every waking moment that I wasn't at work playing a online video game. My addiction to this game was so deep that it was ruining my health, my friendships and my relationship.

But then Geocaching came into my life, and my world changed. I instantly stopped playing my online game, and got outdoors. The fresh air, the sunlight, the sound of the waves and the wind and the birds and the leaves. I was given a new lease on life. My health returned, my friendships got better and I made new friends, and most importantly my relationship was repaired. And in my opinion geocaching saved my life.

This is why I now proudly wear this Travel Bug on my body. It is a visual reminder that something as simple as this activity gave me back my life!
