Comfort in Geocaching

A while back I posted my video about my dad’s final request – to have his ashes scattered at one of his favorite viewpoints in the mountains.

My dad was never interested in geocaching, but my wife, kids and I are and we placed a new geocache – the only one we’ve ever placed – in the same general location as where we scattered his ashes. (Back a bit from the cliff edge, though.)

As the “owner” of the cache, I get updates every time someone finds it and I see their comments. They trickle in slowly, like unexpected presents.

So far, all have been appreciative of the view. Somehow it makes me feel good that my dad’s love of that view is being spread to others.

It feels as if he’s still making a positive difference on the living.
