My 1st is still there. It is "Bunny" cache over by Fox Lake Wi. I found it on 9/29/07 with no GPS. The guy I was dating told me about geocaching & when we would go to Beaver Dam we would pass this marker all the time. So we looked the description up & went looking for it. We were going to give up & I was looking to pull away from the sign & something caught my eye. Lo & behold it was the cache. The next day I went out & bought a cheap GPS program to use on my laptop. It was the Delorme Street atlas program. It took 2 people to use safely while driving. The 1st time I used it we did another cache over by Fox Lake called "Terry's cache". After wondering around the parking lot holding my laptop I figured I SHOULD get a regular GPS so I did. By the way the last person to find the Bunny cache was our very own Big Jim on 2/5/12.

The first cache Brian ever found was 49er cache in Pella Iowa with Swamphog

The first cache Muggle B ever found was a guard the rail by NeonRide, I ended up adopting that cache, so now its mine. I also updated the container from a 35mm to something a lot more fun.

I like how the percentages for I don't know or I don't remember are 0%. It just goes to show how memorable that first experience is.
