Hello there! I’m Cass (Or *geocass* on Geocaching.com). I work in IT. Hoorah! I’m pretty much an odd job girl. I do a bit of server admin, programming, web dev, Linux support, Oracle DB admin, PC building, etc. I have a degree in computer science, and computing, techie stuff and gadgets have been very much “my thing” ever since I was a wizz on the ZX Spectrum and coded in BASIC on the Commodore 64 (What? I don’t look old enough to do those things? I started VERY young!) I absolutely love my job as I am a complete computer geek. I know this is unusual for a girl, but I am the exception 🙂
I got into GeoCaching in March 2010, we were bored and wanted to do something different so I downloaded the free GeoCaching Intro app onto my iPhone and we went to find our first cache. Since then I’ve been hooked. I remember when we found 6 caches in a day and I thought “We will never find this many in a day ever again” well, we’re now past our 2000th find so as you can imagine we have found quite a few more in a single caching trip!
My promise to you is a well maintained, regularly updated blog. Hopefully full of GeoCaching information that you find useful, including:
- GeoCaching resources
- Websites and software to help you on your GeoCaching travels
- Tips, tricks and advice on GeoCaching
- Details on my caching, biking and camping adventures
- Tutorials on creating creative cache containers
- Reviews on geocaching sites, software, and hardware
- And any ideas as they pop into my head!
Other than “Geeking it up” and Caching I’m a generally a very active person enjoy running and walking. I love photography and having this blog is a great excuse to go out and snap shots on my Nikon D5100. I enjoy listening to music and am very into Heavy Metal and Classic Rock. Led Zep, Rolling Stones, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Black Label Society and anything loud are my favorites. 😀 I play electric and classical guitar and when I’m not doing any of the things listed above you’ll find me shopping or down the pub having a gossip with the girls! I’m currently studying a Master Degree in Computer Security and Forensics which is quite a handful whilst working and geocaching full-time (hehe!) so occasionally I’ll be a bit quiet on the caching front.
I hope you enjoy the blog. If you have anything to add please drop me a comment on any of my posts and I will get back to you. Any site feedback is greatly appreciated and I’ll be happy to do a link exchange if you have a site. Just drop me a comment!
I’m also a committee member of the Geocaching Association of Great Britain (GAGB) so please do head over and check them out and if you’re a UK cacher register. We publish a nice little bi-monthly magazine called Seeker which if you enjoy my blog you will also enjoy reading.
Happy caching! 🙂
