Welcome to our Adventure...

We packed up the kids, dog and the trailer and headed out for adventure, learning and helping others. During our adventure we will try to update this site as often as possible to keep everyone interested involved in our travels and to keep a journal for ourselves. The plan is to be working, schooling, helping and sharing on the road for a year.
Please feel free to post comments and questions! Thanks for following!

Sunday in Sunny Georgia

Today we awoke to a beautiful sunshiny day. Brock took Heidi for a little run and we all got ready to attend CrossPointe Church here in Valdosta with the Williams' Family who were trying out the church for the first time as well. It meets in a converted grocery store, but you'd never know it from the inside. Spencer and Skylar attended the kids classes. The rest of us enjoyed the 11 o'clock service. They have a talented worship band and the pastor was just introducing a new series. 
After church, Ryan and Robyn invited us back to their house for a second crack at that delicious sub bar that they'd put together. Everyone built their own sandwiches with all the fixings again. There was chips and potato salad and sweet tea and it was perfect. It was so enjoyable to just relax and visit with them while the kids had a great time playing together. Fun to get to know our new friends!
About 3 o'clock in the afternoon, we decided to head out and hunt for some more geocaches. First, we all headed back to our trailer so that our family could change out of our church clothes and into our geocaching clothes and we could give the Williams' a tour of our home on wheels. Then we headed to Langdale Park where there are A LOT of geocaches hidden out in the woods.
The first successful cache of the day!
Our whole pack descended on the clues for the first geocache and we had success within about 15 minutes. It is pretty cool. You can use a gps to get you pretty close, but then you just have to hunt around. Some of the caches are just small and you find it and put your name in it and that is what our first one was. Within another 15 minutes or so, we'd found a second cache within about a quarter-mile. This one was a treasure trove for the kids with several different little trinkets inside. The rule is if you take something out, you put something in. So, we contributed a couple of our prized shells that we found on the beach in Florida for a toy skateboard that Spencer really wanted out of the cache. The thrill of success was on us and so we set out for another one further down the road. We had a lot fun tromping through the woods and our caching team was a pretty good one as I think we found 5 caches. All of the ones that we set out to find for the day. One of the caches had a "trackable" in it which we took. We have to register that we took it and then we can place it in a cache somewhere else. There is a checklist of states inside and the silly little monkey that was our trackable shows that it's been to Oregon! We plan to see if we can find a cache in either Louisiana or possibly Alabama in the near future because it hasn't been to either of those states yet. Fun!! We only quit because we didn't want to get trapped out in the woods after dark.
A cache with some loot!
Owen checking out some of the booty.
Skylar liked the Spiderman inside the cache,
 but in the end, he put it back.
Nate and Sky were hiking buddies at the end of the day.

We need to come up with a good team name for our geocaching group.
Ryan invited us back to their house for cocoa which turned into ordering pizza for dinner and we got to eat with their family again and the kids had so much fun and played so nicely again and Robyn treated us to fancy cocoa with whipped cream and sprinkles. If it weren't for how much fun I think ALL had, we'd feel like quite the moochers.

We really try not to have the Cousin Eddy thing going on.
