Hi Doc :)
Welcome to the forums, great that you joined and I hope it is an enlightening experience.
I enjoy geocaching myself, although the deer tick problem here really has made it difficult and frightening to do. But then again, here in the Pinelands of New Jersey, we can't even cut the grass without getting a dozen ticks on us - ugh.
I had a unique geocache where I placed small business card sized directions to a VERY tough geocache WHERE you would find an index card sized certificate with an actual soil sample from the Hindenburg Crash site. It was an interest (albeit extremely hard find) the offering was very much worth it.
After having several "finds" where the total cache of Hindenburg Cards were taken, I changed the rules and "in the second cache" you got a special code that when emailed to me, would get you MAILED the certificate.
Even THAT was abused - lol, so I ran out of options and AFTER getting Lymes/Menningitis, I gave up Geocashing for the time being - that was in 2001 and I sadly haven't returned to doing it.
Anyway... I'm thinking about starting up again, placing geocaches around my many RV trips we have planned - it will be interesting to see other RVer/Campers who find the caches using the normal geocache rules and not going with the unique stuff that is really hard to control.
Best wishes in beekeeping, I think it should be right up your alley, my neighbors prior to the current people were both occupational therapists and skilled in raiiki (sic) therapy with training in mind and body methods of healing - they found beekeeping very interesting and we talked often about bee-sting therapy which I did on myself for more than 2 years after taking a very nasty (20 foot) fall to an asphault macadam.
I don't have to tell you how lucky I am to just have fractured an arm in multiple places and cause cronic neck stress issues. My arm healed well, but the neck was not responding as well and apitherapy was a bit painful but successful in treating my pain. We'll talk about that again I'm sure in future posts.
So welcome aboard and I'm really glad you find the forums helpful and fun. It is less than 15 months old and has really grown in last few months, nearly exponentially. Talk again soon :)
