Are you near a river or lake?  Any kayak/canoe caches?  Those are T:5 just for requiring a boat, but aren't really that hard.

Some scenes from Family Camp up in the mountains last weekend.
Last weekend we (wife, kids, Yours Truly), spend the weekend at a camp in Old Fort NC as part of our churches Family Camp. Here are some scenes from the weekend, including frisbee, camp fires, canoeing, and geysering. So lets all rush off to family camp! Posted by Dave DeBaeremaeker at 8:10 PM ...

So far Bike To Work Day (really, a week) has been a rousing success this year.

#BTWD   #RideSallyRide  
As part of Bike To Work Month, I organized a group ride for my local office. Based on past participation, I expected 4 people to sign up to ride sometime this month, and 3 to actually show up for the group ride planned for this morning. Turns out, I got 14 people to sign up for the month, ...

Wish that was an option for me.  It's 40 miles and 1000 ft of elevation from home to work.

Milestone Unlocked: Geovan of Destiny reaches 100K miles.

#GeovanOfDestiny   #LifeIsAHighway   #HardRoadEasy  
Hard to believe we've put 100000 miles on the GeoVan of Destiny. Its been to 38 states, 6 provinces, and way to many awesome adventures to mention (most of em are recorded in this blog: Google it.) We have many more adventures planned, so hopefully she will last for a few more years to come.

I have vastly improved my technique of shooting the cardinal chicks that are inhabiting the nest outside my living room window.

The chicks are about half way to becoming fledglings (aka being ready to leave the nest).  They are growing fast, and their parents are being kept busy trying to satisfy their appetites.

#Cardinals   #BabyBirds  #AvianLandlords
Since the last post I managed to improve my ability to get decent shots of the chicks that have inhabited a nest just outside my living room window. I did some research and apparently cardinal chicks stay in the nest for 8-12 days, so we are right around half way done with this little experiment ...

This is kinda awesome, and I must share with my commuting peeps.

As part of Bike To Work Month, I organized a group ride for my local office.  I expected 4 people to sign up to ride sometime this month, and 3 to actually show up for the group ride planned for this morning.

Turns out, I got 14 people to sign up for the month, and 10 (10!) people to come out for the group ride.

I am completely chuffed right now.  

Best part: there is already an effort (not lead by myself) to do a group ride once a week.

This is the last post about the chicks.  They left the nest, and wandered away with their parents.

#EmptyNesters   #FlyBabyFly
All good things must come to an end. Luckily for the cardinal chicks nesting in the bush outside my living room window, it is a happy ending. While I was at work on Friday, my wife chatted with me that the chicks had started to leave the nest while we were both out of the house.

I only had time to grab a few shots this evening.  The feathers are coming in nicely!  The chicks are really getting fuzzy now, and moving around a lot more.

I only had time this evening to grab a few shots of the cardinal chicks that have been growing in a nest outside my living room window. I didn't see mama, but father was doing a great job bringing food. The chicks feathers are growing in nicely. They are also moving around more.

Geocacher, explorer, resident alien.
Introduction
It is my lot in life to resemble a cross between Indiana Jones, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, and Chewbacca (what a wookie!)

I am a geocacher, which means that the world is my playground.

I am a proud Canadian who lives in North Carolina, so my writing is full of extra u's, and oddly pronounced 'outs'. I also have an inferiority complex and a penchant for self deprecating humour.
