I was just wondering how many of the WGA membership might accomplish the same feat as the cover gentleman in December's issue of the WI Department of Natural Resources Magazine. It is a somewhat interesting article.

Geolivestrong has been tearing up the trails while working on the WGA State Parks series.

It seems that the author took his time and savored what each property had to offer. We have visited many places over the years, and we often said we'd love to come back and spend more time, but that doesn't always happen.

Thanks to the WGA (before the state park cache series), we have gotten to experience many Wisconsin places through the picnics and the campouts. Looking forward to checking out many more spots. Very Happy

Interesting article. I'm pretty sure I know this guy....I think he might have been a student at the middle school where Trekkin' and I taught. Boy, do I feel old.

We've visited the majority of the state parks, but not in one year. I think we still need to visit Copper Culture, Gov. Thompson, Lake Kegonsa, New Glarus Woods and Council Grounds. We may have found one cache at the edge of Council Grounds, but didn't really explore the main park. The WGA series will help us toward that end, though we clearly need no excuse to explore the state's diversity.

Oh, Kinnikinnic and Willow River need visits from us, too. I've been campaigning for those two for some time now.

He he, we're going to a theater performance on Sunday. We have this business of trying to hit a certain number of caches on certain calendar days. My "secret" (not any more!) goal is to only get those this month, keeping our year's finds under a another certain number.

Even if we do go a little over, we'll be at our lowest number of finds since 2008.

I'm almost certain that Ringdahl guy went to the middle school. Must not have run cross country or Trekkin' would probably remember him if he had.

Ha ha, figured it out...he's in our Audubon Club! And maybe went to the middle school.
