I am excited to introduce Aaron - HoneyBadger34 in our September Caching Kids Spotlight! Over the past several years, we have had the opportunity to cache with Aaron and his family, and he has certainly grown to be a wonderful young man. We hope to see you play in the NBA!!
Say hello to Aaron!


First Name: Aaron
Geo name: HoneyBadger34
School Grade: 9th


Image

1. What is your geo-name or do you share a geo-name with your family?
HoneyBadger34 - I liked the youtube video and one of my favorite football players is Tyrann Mathieu who is nicknamed the honey-badger.

2. What is your favorite thing about geocaching?
Doing high difficulty caches and crawling into small spaces to get them.

3. Do you tell your friends about geocaching? If so, what do they think?
Yes. Most of them know what it is so it isn’t as weird to them as some may think.

Image

4. Have you ever taken your friends geocaching with you?
Yes, they all have had a blast doing it.

5. What types of caches do you like to find?
Virtuals

Image

6. Of all the caches you have found, do you have a favorite?
GC2HN2H - Raiders of the Lost Cache

Image

7. Have you hidden or helped hide a geocache?
I haven’t hid one myself, but I have helped my dad, deepdish23, with some of his hides.

8. Do you like going for long hikes or adventurous types of caches?
Definitely both.

9. What has been your most adventurous or fun cache find?
Two of them:
GC59AF - Thousand Steps Cache - I had no problem climbing the steps, but had to wait 40 minutes at the cache before my dad finally arrived.
GC2MD1H - Cave - A very cool cache.
Also, I was able to go to Heater Island this spring with my dad and our neighbors. It was cool exploring that island.

10. What is your favorite type of swag to find in a cache?
I’m not a swag person but some people have really cool pathtags.

11. What type of GPS do you use?
Magellan

12. If you could add a new feature or technology to geocaching, what would it be? I don’t know.

13. Do you like going to geocaching events?
Depends what type of event it is. I like attending LPyankeefan events especially if spikep is there causing trouble.

14. If so, what was your favorite geo-event and what made it so much fun?
2013 Wicomico GeoDash - I like the Eastern Shore and I got to do my first kayak cache, which was #1000.

Image

15. What type of games do you like at geo-events?
Ice breakers

16. Do you participate in other activities or sports?
Basketball is my absolute favorite sport.

17. Outside of school, what other types of hobbies do you enjoy?
Boating fishing soccer football

18. Is there anything else you would like to share?
A cool story. Our church youth group went hiking on the Appalachian Trail this spring and we got to this overlook and started exploring. Someone from below the overlook yelled that they think they found a geocache. A couple of us went down there and look and sure enough it was a geocache. I signed it. When I went back home, I told mom and dad about it and of course my dad, who is addicted to geocaching, had to try and figure out which cache it was. It turned out to be GCGDTX - Black Rock Supply Cache.

19. What is your favorite subject in school?
History. I have always been fascinated with how human civilization has changed over time.

20. What would you like to be when you grow up or study in college?
I would like to play in the NBA but that will not happen, so I would like to be a sportswriter and study in journalism. If that doesn’t work out I would study in economics.

Image

21. If you could go geocaching anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Ireland. I have never been there before and it seems like an awesome place. Scotland would be an awesome place too.

22. Are there any caches that you have not found that you would like to find?
Any of the Psycho Urban caches I haven’t found yet.

LOL!!! You are a riot! And yes - your #13 answer cracked me up too! I can SEE how that would make ANY event much more fun!!!

I'm wondering where that mousetrap cache is from? I found a cache like it down south somewhere. Florida, Louisiana, Alabama... somewhere! Not as nice as the one you found though!

So glad to hear that many of your friends know about and enjoy caching! That is great!!!

Awesome write up. I also enjoy when I get the chance to cache with you and your fam. Cool to see you "growing up" through the pics, too.
