Wow, Bunnyfufu, that's a great (but long)name. Hopefully you won't mind if I shorten it. Image

Why don't you come down to a Metro Milwaukee breakfast or another event cache? Then you can meet some of us in person and someone can give you some pointers on your GPS, AND have some waffles to boot! Image

Next weekend is the big WGA campout in Waupaca. Not sure if it's too late to register for that or maybe you could come for a day.

WGA Board Wake up! Image... Can someone still come?

Mr. WISearcher

The next breakfast is June 19th in Kenosha. The cache page is here. (I promise I'll be filling in more info soon!)

Come on down and I'm sure there'll be plenty of people willing to give you a hand getting started. There are several caches in that park which are not too difficult for a beginner, plus there will be some temporary caches available as well. Hope to see you there!

If you will meet us at the statue mentioned in Another Wisconsin First [GCA803] at 9:00 Saturday morning. We will happily give you a mini-lesson in geocaching and GPS use.

Hey Trudy & the beast!! I think I could actually get that in Sat morn. I know the place you are talking about. Managed to get some thigns loaded in, just need to figure out what everything means now. LOL Sure do appreciate the help!! June 19th sounds fun too, but helping a fellow Newbee with moving that weekend.

And WISearchers.... YES it's "FOO" not F.U. Image

Well we were there at 2 minutes before the designated time and found Fu waiting for us. With her current level of understanding and enthusiasm, it won't be long before she is logging finds from all around the world.
