It’s about the hunt. The numbers. About going places and seeing new things. That’s why we spend our time geocaching - using multimillion global positioning satellites to find tupperware hidden in some of the strangest places.
This summer Cibachrome and I strike out for the Artic Circle. Yep. Geocaching Alaska and touring some of the breathtaking sites that this unspoiled wilderness state provides. Our goal is find 69 geocaches during our two week trip. We'll be reporting our trip with words and photos.
We look forward to another great adventure. A lot of places to see.
So why do it? Adventure. Numbers. Maybe it's about looking for something else that's just hard to describe. It's marking those milestones as well. Come go with us. And let's see what we can see together.

Lee Brantley -- Geo-nickname "Cibachrome"; a photographic technique that involves a dye destruction positive-to-positive photographic process used for the reproduction of slides on photographic paper. Lee chose his geocache identity because of his passion for photography. With the advent of the digital age of photography, the cibachrome process has virtually disappeared.
Peter Bowden -- Geo-nickname "Widgeon1178". Widgeon is a type of duck, grouped as "dabbling duck" so named because it feeds mainly on vegetable matter by upending on the water surface, or grazing, and only rarely dive. Peter's geo-nick is derived from an early exploration of the out of doors through Scouts and camping along the ruins of the Spanish Fort in Ft. Mitchell, Alabama.
