Hewwwow!! Finnackles here, telling you about the cache I helped Momma find. Check it out GC2N6BV – The Way a Sandwich Should Be (1996-2000). Momma had me out and said she needed my sniffer to find this one. It was actually hidden with a magnet under this random sign in a strip mall.

We looked to the right to make sure there weren’t any muggles around when we grabbed it.

We looked to the left to make sure there weren’t any muggles around when we grabbed it.

Anyone see what’s behind me? A Subway shop. And their slogan was “The Way a Sandwich Should Be” from 1996-2000 (apparently!  We looked it up when we got home). The sign where the cache was hidden was directly across from the shop in the parking lot.

There’s the cache! Our log was rolled up inside there. We signed it and put it back so the next person could find it. Geodog Finn here, hoping you all had a great time looking for your caches!

Over and out!

PS – Make sure to hook up with the linky link over at Gizmo’s if you’re joining us on your geocache adventure today!  And….last but not least…I would like to thank my outdoor partner in crime today for hosting this event!  You rock Gizmo!

Hi guys!  We can’t wait to see where you took your peeps for GeoDog Day!  And, have you seen Head Cheerleader Madi today?  She knows how tough it is to sniff out those caches so she is cheering us on!

GeoDog Charley up!  I am back in Patchogue with my friend Maya and we are out looking for virtual cache GC86F8 – Sticky Situation. The map took us just a little bit behind the Main Street in town, and we knew we were looking for something sticky from the description (and name).  Can you see what we found?

How about now?

I think Maya was trying to get a taste! Here it is close-up!

Reminds me of a smaller version of the alley way in Seattle, if you have ever been there. Once we made our find, we had to email the person who set up the cache what we would name it and if we had a contribution. We did not make make a contribution (gross!) and I called it Bubble Gum Alley!

The cache was right next to a church, and since we were there on a Sunday, we had a little listen to some music and said a prayer.  I wanted to go inside and see if Goose’s Mom was there with Goose and Murphy & Stanley, but my Momma told me they weren’t there.  Sorry guys, I tried!

GeoDog Charley reporting here, cache found.  Over and out.

We Are Winning! (And Not in a Charlie Sheen Type of Way)

Last month there was very interesting smelling parcel that came in the mail and it was addressed to US!  We couldn’t believe it.  Momma helped us unpack it and look at what we found in it!

Yummo! We won Dolly the Doxie’s giveaway and look at all that!  We asked for a treat rightaway!  Charley was too quick to capture on camera, but as I am a model and understand the art of camera seduction, Momma was able to snap this picture.

IMG_1533
Nom, nom, nom. YUMMY. And then we asked Momma to give us some of the dinner one night. Looking good!

All eight paws agree! Thank you Dolly for having the giveaway! We looooved our meals and snacks!

GeoDog- Cache Up in a Tree?

Dudes, Charley here.  Reporting to you about the time Momma met her friend C and my friend Maya for some cache hunting.  You can find their blog here!  Yep, Momma has real life friends with doggies too!  Click on over and go say hello!  Anyways, Momma and her friend wanted to go for a walk with us, and did not want to have any ticks, so they decided on going for a little walk in a town called Patchogue, on the south shore of Long Island.  It’s undergoing some revitalization, so they are trying to build back up their main street.

Check out the cool murals! We had never been here before, and Momma wanted to see how I would do just the two of us in a new and busy place. She said I did just fine! Duh, like of course.

Okay, so here are our friends.

Ain’t Maya a cutie?? Ok, so we took a little walk to try to find cache GC343KB – Garden of Delights.  Click on the link to follow along.  The cache is in a small garden and the hint says to look up.  Out little app took us to this garden.  So pretty!

IMG_7383

We were lead to a nice looking tree, and since the clue said to look up, we did. Do you see what I see?

C found it:

A black canister hanging under the tree. You never know what you are gonna find when you play! So we found the log, but neither of us had a pen with us (doh!) so we submitted a photo of the log as proof we were there.
