A Day Zero Project goal of P.J.’s has been completed!
Goal completed: Geocache with somebody I met through Twitter/Blogging etc.
Date completed: May 23, 2015
Description: For many years, I’ve been involved in social media, be it Twitter or blogging or Instagram etc. Through time, you get the chance to meet many cool and different people, even if just in the virtual world. A lot of the people I’ve met over the years online are geocachers, so I thought it would be pretty cool to meet somebody who I only knew from the social media world and find a cache or two with them.
Why I wanted to do it: Honestly… why not? Geocachers are a great bunch of people, so being able to get to know them virtually before meeting makes it pretty easy to figure out if they are cool or not. I find most who I deal with on social media I’d be willing to meet and cache with. It also makes it so you get to meet and hang out with new people.
How I did it: This is one of those goals that was on my initial list and I never completed it. So I put it on again figuring I had to be able to do it at some point, even if I wasn’t as active on Twitter and all. At some point before GeoWoodstock, I got a tweet from somebody I’ve known on Twitter for several years saying she, too, would be at GeoWoodstock and we should meet up and all. She’s from the west coast, so it was pretty cool.
On the morning of GeoWoodstock, I had the chance to meet up with and chat with Maggie and she eventually joined me and the two people I was with for some cache finds throughout the day and for a few others on Sunday. It was pretty cool as we all had the chance to see how people cache differently and all. Very cool stuff and I’m glad I had the chance to do this, as well as check it off the list.
About P.J.’s Day Zero Project: Day Zero is a project where people come up with 101 things to do over 1001 days. I started the project on August 1, 2014 with an anticipated finish date of April 28, 2017. Goals will not be revealed until they are completed. A private list is at the Day Zero website and the list will be made public upon completion of the project. It’s my thoughts that if things are kept private, should I not do them, change or find a way around it, I’d only be cheating myself.
