Cacher of the Month October 2021
October Cacher of the Month reigns from South Texas – #1Fishingal.
Here is her story:
I grew up here in Texas and was fortunate to be able to travel stateside and overseas during my 20 years in the Army. I enjoy the outdoors immensely, especially hiking, kayaking, fishing, and of course, geocaching. I am also a birder and self-taught wildlife photographer.
How did you come up with your Geo Nic/Caching Name?
Since my #1 hobby when I started geocaching was fishing in tournaments (before I had my kids), I decided my geocaching name would be #1Fishingal (as in – Number 1 – not hashtag )
How did you get started caching?
I started Geocaching in 2014. I used to Letter Box with my kids when my brother-in-law “little de” introduced me to Geocaching and I was hooked after that.
What is it about caching that you enjoy the most?
I love how Geocaching gets me to travel to places I have never been and meet great people along the way!!
What has been the highlight of your caching career so far?
So many highlights that it is hard to choose – Rookie of the year 2014 (Northern Virginia Geocaching Organization), Best Geocache Camouflage – (Northern Virginia Geocaching Organization), attending a GEOWoodstock (Maryland), finding caches 400 consecutive days and my recent 3000 find…. and now this
Anything else you want to share?
Thanks to everyone who made me feel so welcome when we moved here from Virginia – you all are an awesome group!! Also a big thanks to everyone who looks for and comments on my hides – I love reading your logs more than I love creating the caches.
