    GeoCache BOF is for Escapees who share an interest in Geocaching.

    (This page maintained by Sky Renfro. Last modified: 2/7/2013 8:56 PM Pacific time.)

    Escapees BOF (Birds of a Feather) groups are comprised of people who share a common interest. In order to belong to a BOF, one must be a member in good standing of the Escapees RV Club.

    GeoCache BOF provides a communication link allowing members to be in touch with other SKP geocachers. When arriving in a new location it will allow an easy way to find others who have a similar interest. It will also be a forum for sharing information about geocaching as it relates to the RV life style.

    Experienced members will provide mentoring for new and prospective geocachers.

    All communications will be posting on our Yahoo Bulletin Board; no fees will be collected.

    Come join our GeoCache BOF.... It's easier than finding a cache. Simply send an email to SKPGeoCacheBOF (at) gmail.com with your name(s), SKP number, geocache.com handle, email address and phone number. Within a few days, you'll be welcomed into the BOF and be subscribed to the Yahoo Group.

    Are you a GeoCacher? Do you have OCCCS?

    After reading through the following questions there might be more than one of “you” that has OCCCS (Obsessive Compulsive Cache Craving Syndrome).

    Some of the professional questions that you might want to consider are: Do you ever do or think about any of the following?

    … a colleague brings out their Tupperware lunch box and you automatically reach for your pen to sign the log book.

    … you can't walk down a path without thinking, "Hmmm, that'll be a good place for a cache!".

    … your idea of gift-giving is to hide the gifts in the garden with co-ords and a clue.

    … you are watching TV and think "That's a beautiful place, I wonder where the nearest cache is?'"

    … you purposely take the kids to McDonalds to buy them a happy meal so you can pinch the toy to use as a swap.

    … you give directions by which caches are passed, instead of which pubs are passed.

    … you start having nightmares about muggled caches.

    … you sort through your pockets at the checkout at the supermarket and can only offer Geocoins.

    ... the Easter Egg hunt you organize for your nephews involves the use of GPs units and is in the form of a Multi.

    … you routinely gauge everyday objects for their suitability as cache containers.

    … your party invitations include GPS coordinates.

    … you always look up caches before you go anywhere.

    … you waypoint your car at the shopping mall.

    … you panic because you forgot to waypoint your car at the shopping mall.

    … you consider moving because you've already found all the caches in your area.

    If you suffer from one or more of the symptoms above then it is likely that you too suffer from this affliction.

    Do not despair! They have found that there is an easy cure - more Geocaching! That's right! Apparently, it has been found that more Geocaching will cure this addiction. Well, it doesn't actually cure it but it sure does take your mind off worrying about being addicted!

    We are under construction and many revisions are coming. Please visit us again soon!
