Hi all, I stumbled upon your website by pure chance while researching a statue in Kentucky a while back. I have been fascinated ever since.
I hope now that Christmas is over I can spend a little cache (pun completely intended) on a GPSr and hit the trails by the time the snow melts. I noticed there are a few local caches within walking distance of my house so I hope to start there and work my way up. I would love to find a local buddy to cache with if anyone is interested, and I'm sure I'm going to be in need of some help learning to use the GPS.
I'm 45, single, grandmother of two boys with a third grandchild on the way, my son recently returned from Iraq (hence the third grandchild on the way), and I work way too much and play way too little. I'm a bit of a dork but I have great taste in classic rock and country, I am the first one to laugh at myself when the occasion arises, and I believe that imagination is more powerful than knowledge.

Welcome Aboard!

I am located in Green Bay, and always up for caching. If you want to give it a try before ou go out and buy a GPS, Let me know, as I have a few, I can loan out.

I have quite a few caches out in the Green Bay/DePere Area, as well as quite a few in the Manitowoc/Two Rivers area.

Feel free to contact me at anytime. It's always a good thing when new people get intrested in the sport, Especially when they put out more Traditional Caches for the rest of us to find!!!

Welcome to our friendly cult. I mean club. Seeing as you are a bears fan, I guess we can start the human sacrafices again. Have fun. That's what it's all about.

Welcome, Watch out for Justin he like to make you do all the work. LOL

Appleton is a great place to get out caching too. You are fortunate to live in such a cache dense area.

In summary…Welcome to the addictive party. Since you are a Bears fan, the club can commence its mayhem. A local member of the cult will show you the ropes before the human sacrifice.

Doesn't it all sound just peachy???

Is the sacrifice going to be considered a mega event?
