By Big Al

Grab a glass of egg nog or a cup of hot apple cider, a piece of pumpkin pie or mincemeat (yuck), and sit back and enjoy some time with family and your Cachecrazy friends.

So today is the big day; Thanksgiving Day. You’ve arrived at the family homestead and you plan on enjoying a day with all of your relatives as you sit around the dinner table eating fresh turkey with all of the trimmings. 

You know like mashed potatoes, creamed corn, cranberry sauce, stuffing, homemade rolls, candied sweet potatoes, and the all time favorite pumpkin pie. (I’m getting hungry about now.) Depending on when you read this post you’re either waiting to eat that big meal or you've just finished it. Ahhh, finally time to sit back and relax and let that belt out just a little bit. Oh what a relief it is.

By now the table has been cleared, the TV has been turned on, and you are waiting for that big game to start. But then you notice that there is a little bit of time to kill before the kick off actually takes place. What do you do? Well my friends let my help you with something to do. We’re going to do an acrostic Big Al style. Here are twelve things you can be thankful for this holiday season.

              T H A N K S G I V I N G

T - Travel Bugs- Come on you know you like them; you’re a kid at heart.

H-  Hiking- You love to take those long hikes in the woods with your family.

A-  Avitar- That’s the picture you’ve been waiting to upload to your account, but you just haven’t figured out how to do it yet.

N-  Nano- Those are the little buggers that drive you insane when you just can’t locate them.

K-  Knowledge Books- that place you go for more information about Geocaching.

S-  Signature Items- They’re cool, but you leave them in those unique caches because you know this guy went to a lot of trouble putting together a quality cache.

                                          G-  God- He’s given us so many things to enjoy in the outdoors as well as life it self.

I-  Icons- Where would we be without all of those nifty little icons.

V- Victory dance- You know that is what you do when you get another FTF.

I- Team- Okay so you’re looking at this one and saying “Big Al there is no I in Team, and you’re right. So find someone to cache with whether it’s your family or just a friend. Go out and make some memories having fun.

N- Numbers- I had to say it because they do mean a lot to some people. So get out there and find some more caches and up those numbers.

G- Geocaching.Com- Just think for a moment, if we did not have we would not be Geocaching; we’d all be sitting on the couch watching way too much TV, and getting heavier by the minute, and the kids would be glued to the computer screen getting lost in there somewhere. SNAP OUT OF IT!!  I said to think about it for a minute. Now that it’s over get back to what you love doing. GEOCACHING!

Seriously though, I hope that this Thanksgiving you do get to spend a lot of time with family and friends creating memories that will last a life time. Whether it’s Geocaching, playing football, hunting, or just about anything else, get out there and do it. You only have the ones you love for a short time so make the most of it while they are around. I know that Uncle Billy Bob really gets your goat, but hey what kind of holiday would it be without him. Just enjoy him for who he is, or whoever it is, and have fun with them.

And as for me, I’m going to spend the day with my family and my in-laws having a great meal and just enjoying their presence. We might even get out for a few caches if time allows.  

Have a great day and 
HAPPY THANKSGIVING from all of us here at

Great post. I loved the 'v' for victory lol as I was doing just that a couple of weeks ago, my hubby looked the other way lol but hey we were in a lane away from the road only a passing plane would have seen me as we were next to the airport!
As for the pumpkin pie, I make that but I have only made it a few times as we do not get pumpkin pie in tinss here in the UK. I brought several tins home once from Minneapolis a number of years back, and who was chosen to have their cases checked at the airiport? Lol. I managed to fin a couple of tins to bring home last November in Singapore enroute from Australia, I still have one tin left.
