Just registered on this forum though I've read through some of the posts for a while now. The family has been having a lot of great experiences geocaching and I'd like to thank those of you who have done the work to hide some of the interesting caches we've already discovered as well as those that we hope to discover in the future. Also thanks to the folks that set up and run this Wisconsin site- a lot of work has gone into what we've been enjoying. We appreciate it.

Loved the pic you submitted in the jeep contest!

A fellow cacher & kayaker- should we be looking for some aqua-caches by next summer?

Glad you like the photo. It's not up on the Jeep site though, is it? I take it you saw it from the bug's page?

We took that on Monday at Otter Lake campground in the Harrison Hills. There was one other couple sitting on a picnic table watching us. I told them "there is a good reason, it's just too hard to explain" as I laid on my belly in the beach sand, while my son tried to steady a kayak tied to a toy jeep. Often the wind would move the kayak and the little jeep would do a wheelie, or get dragged back through the sand. We took over a dozen shots to get that one good one. I don't know how they can tell, but the rules say you can't crop, or adjust the brightness- photo is supposed to be right out of the camera. That one is, and I was surprised at how well it turned out.

We picked up the kayaks this spring. Other than my daughter, none of us had ever kayaked before. Took a chance at the Gander Mt. sale and bought four boats. Stuffed them in the back of the truck and hoped we'd done the right thing. Turns out to be the best thing we've purchased in a long time. We spent a lot of hours paddling this summer and enjoyed every minute. We'll be thinking of some aqua-caches for next year, you bet.

The picture doesn't look altered at all to me. Looks nice!

Nope, it isn't- that is right out of the camera. It was hard to see in the little screen on the camera in the sunlight but when we got home I was quite happy with it.
