I was hoping to get a GPS for Christmas but it didn't happen. I am now looking for a person or a group that I can get my feet wet. What do you think?

John ---
Would love to help you get a start. I even have an extra GPS you could use when (if) we get together. Only problem is that we are about 100 miles apart. BUT.....
My folks live in Sheboygan. And my dad is another cacher. We usually get together on Father's Day weekend to go caching around the Sheboygan area. So if you're still interested come June, please go to my user profile in geocaching.com and e-mail me. Perhaps we can get together and get you rolling.

John,

Maybe you can meet up with our family sometime, since we're just south of you about 18 miles. I'm thinking of a specific cache in Sheboygan that has gotten the best of me ... are you any good at hanging on to the end of a rope?

Maybe we could try for spring or something ... as we're not doing too much caching with the snow right now.

If you want to get into this for sure, the sooner you get a GPSr and play around with it the better (so that you know it well in the woods). But if your not sure (but you will be hooked once you try it), you can always let our "guest" GPSr point you around in the woods with us.

Hey EnergySaver,
That sounds like a great idea. I would love to know a little about all of this before I get a unit. My wife thinks that I am a little nuts but that is what she loves about me. I also think that my 3yr old would love to go walk with me. At least it would run a little energy off her. Let me know hoe to get a hold of you and we could set somthing up.

JR ...

Sounds like fun. We have two girls (9 and 13) and are always looking for other kids to set them loose on (I mean with).

To email any geocacher:
- log into your account on geocaching.com
- go to http://www.geocaching.com/email/
OR "Look Up/Email Another" on your "My Cache Page"
- then type the name of the user (ie. EnergySaver)
- you'll be on your way from there

Again, we're not going to do any semi-heavy caching til the snow is gone.

If you want to "study up" ... Search for caches at 53083 then click on the one for "Upriver", then click on "View them all on one page" at the bottom of the screen(to see ALL the past logs). We've only made one attempt at this one, but spent a fair amount of time. So we'd love to bring another family's eyes along and maybe some more rope. Image
