I love going geocaching with mom & furriends. We’d been out to Marshall Hampton Reserve once before, but Sunday we went back to hike the second trail and do a little geocaching.

Here is Finn helping me hunt it up, but I got there first 🙂


Sun got in my eyes here but I still found the cache…


If you love to hike with your dogs you should try geocaching…it’s great fun for dogs and their people!

Gizmo Out!

Thanks to BlogPaws for hosting this Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop. Hop on over to join in the fun and see what everyone else has been up to this week.



About Gizmo

Hi! I'm Gizmo...a handsome terrier-about-town with a distinct point of view. I will write about whatever interesting things come across my desk, appear on my twitter feed @GizmoGeodog, or meet me out on the geotrails. I love to geocache cause it takes me to all the wild places & I can get back to being a real dog. I care about all my brofurs & sisfurs who haven't found their own forever homes yet, & raise funds to help them whenever I can. My girl brought me home from the shelter & together we explore our world. I do my best to make her smile, & she does her best for me. We are a team.

    Hey Gizmo!
    I LOVE Geocaching. My human is teaching me to ‘find it’ at the moment. I can ‘find it’ ok, it’s just ‘Bella DROP” that I’m having trouble with! *wag wag wag*
    Geo-Dogs are PAWSOME!

    • Gizmo says:

      Bella…you’re a caching dog too?! How pawsome! My job is to guard the cache while mom signs the log for us both…Mom sent your mom an email about caching dogs *snoogles*

  6. It looks like fun…ahhhm I think I should ask Mr. “Doggle” for geocachin ;o)

    • Gizmo says:

      Easy pal you would LOVE geocaching! There’s lots of geopups in England…mom talks to some of them & we’ll be doing an interview with one soon *cachingsnoogles*

  7. That looks like a great way to spend the day.

  8. Kristine says:

    This is the first I have heard of the term “geocaching” but it sounds like a lot of fun and definitely something my dog would enjoy. Is this something people can do on their own or do you need to be in a structured group?

    • Gizmo says:

      I started on my own…just me and my dog Bruno, hiking trails & finding caches…didn’t even know how to use my GPS then…if you go to there’s a lot of good stuff there on getting started…and you can always ask me questions…i’ll be blogging more about it over the next couple of months too…

  9. Clowie says:

    You certainly look as though you had fun! I love hiking with my bipeds.

    • Gizmo says:

      Oh Joy! We love making friends with other canine cachers…and last weekend was perfect hiking and caching weather here…not too hot for a nice long hike for a change… and I love the logging acronym! Ammo cans are the best aren’t they…and it’s fun to realize that caches look the same all over…Wish we could cache together some day…the dogs would love it!

  14. Kia says:

  15. Loy says:

    What fun you must have had! It looks like the cache was really deep into the woods! Happy Wednesday!

    • Gizmo says:

      We did hike about 6 miles that day, but it was a big look around the oak hammock…It’s an old cattle ranch that was donated to our county as Environmental Lands for all to use
