Memfis Mafia

Jesse (Memfis)


My real name is Jesse but I seem to be known by more people as Memfis. I am the patriarch of Memfis Mafia and some would say master mind (but not the boss) of the family.  I am way too wise to live in a house full of women and think I am in charge. I am always looking to push the envelope and never back down from a new experience.  I love geocaching and always try to elevate the game from a simple scavenger hunt to an unbelievable adventure with every find I make. The only thing I love more than adventure is geocaching with my awesome wife and two wonderful daughters. OCQHJB

For some insight into how I think or maybe more accurately my perspective on this great game of ours, here is a recent pic of where geocaching can take you. I guess this wouldn’t be called going to new heights. Maybe going to new lows? Either way it made for a fun photo op. This type of caching, leaving the beaten path, is my favorite. We have all been asked what is our favorite style of geocaching. For me, it is the one that takes a lot of planning, maybe requires a little bit of travel, and if I’m lucky pushes me slightly outside of my comfort zone.


For 2018, we set a goal of getting to 10,000 caches. Now that we are approaching the end of the year we see that it will not happen for us. If it did we would have to cut out some of our other family plans so – no go. Perfectly ok. We had a few trips planned that would have made this goal attainable but life got in the way. Since we geocache to enhance our family fun we chose not to let it become a burden. Turns out along the way we had tons of adventures we hadn’t planned on. That is the way life goes. 
We have already decided that we will still keeping working on numbers and will get close to 8000 before the year is over. Even more fun is that we have narrowed down a few crazy goals for next year. Yes, we could shoot for the same thing but we have some other ideas in mind. We always want it to be a family activity and the family is now leaning toward some international travel. Who knows? That may not work out either but what we do know is that we will have fun no matter where the future leads us.
