We have a number of family members who cache because we introduced them to it. We are the most obsessed cachers in the family, but we have introduced my oldest sister and her three kids, my other sister and her oldest daughter, my mom, my wife's aunt, my cousin and his wife along with their two kids, and my father in law to it. Out of those, only my sisters and their families as well as my cousin and his family really have cache much apart from caching with us.

My mom and step-dad cache because I introduced them to it - they have a couple caches they hid in So. Cal. that others keep an eye on that still get quite a few visits. When they pass through the Cities and visit, we always plan at least one caching excursion, or plan other events around a cache we can get (i.e. the last time they visited was International Earthcache Day, so we went and got a couple of those, and I discovered Anoka actually has a real downtown!). Now they're retired to Big Sky, Montana (where I grew up) which isn't a really cache-dense area, so they don't do too much geocaching. My mom still logs her finds, but not my step-dad. He did get into the benchmarks, but I think his interest waned along with Groundspeak's interest in benchmarks. My sister will take my nieces out geocaching once in a while as well, and I also took them caching when they came out here to visit.

I'm an only cacher...though I did get my dad to come with me a few years ago before his parkinsons got too bad

It started with us all together (hence the name).....but then Steve decided to go out on his own...so now he has his own handle. The kids will each get their own handle at 13 (old enough to log their own). ..so will add 4 more to the equation. My nephew (active duty Air Force) and his family in Texas have tried it....not syre handle or how it went. We tried to get my motger in law interested, but I don't think she is as much as we want her to be. Lol.
