Welcome, KD8BTK!

Glad to see you here. Being from Green Bay, there are plenty of experienced geocachers in your area who would be more than willing to tag along and show you the ropes, give you hints, and reveal the secrets of experience. I'm sure they'll pop in here soon.

If not, I'm just a stones throw south and I'd be more than happy to meet up and help you work out the kinks.

Welcome to the addiction!

Hey..welcome to the group! I still have some GB caches to attack. If you're off and want to go out sometime, drop me a note at:
cacheboppinbunnyfufu at yahoo. You can send a note via Geocaching dot com under the same ID. I am having an event (GCRN7C)in February at Woodland Dunes, for beginners stuff.

I'd add a link on here but I can't find that thread that tells me how... and I' a blonde, soooooo.

Welcome again!!!

Welcome to this addicting sport!
Have fun, set your pace, and always give a "five minutes more" call before giving up because that is when you usually find it.

Know that these forums are a great place to hear positive stories, get to know your fellow cachers, and to get help on issues on geocaching. Geocachers are primarily fun, positive people who enjoy escaping their day-to-day activities by using their brain and body to make incredible (and some not so incredible) finds.

Welcome Again.

Don't hesitate to contact other cachers via email and try to get to events. Events are a great place to meet other cachers, learn tricks of the trades, and to hear fun stories.

RUN! Just RUN! As fast as you can! A new "world" has opened up to you and it's yours to explore!!

I know I have noticed areas and things I've never seen before eventhough they've been there all along.

Keep on cachin' and happy new year!

Hi and Welcome to this madness! So glad to see another cacher from Green Bay.

If you ever need help, or someone to tag along on a hunt, just send an email. There are a lot of nice caches here in Green Bay to find so you're lucky! You'll find most of us cachers like to help when we can!

Good Luck!

Newbie, welcome! Drop a line at geocaching.com if you are on the western side of WI.
