Ha ha, how did I guess you would be the one to start this? Thanks Jim and Linda for the welcome and the past help you have given me.

Well I'm 23 and married. I work 3rd shift at a local factory in the Fox Valley. I used to live in Appleton for a few years when I was in grade school but then I moved up to Wabeno and finished school. I found my way back to the Valley due to the lack of jobs up around Wabeno. I drive a Toyota.... but I bet you all figured that one out by now. But seriously its a 02 Tacoma and I love it.

Yeah I'm having a blast. I wish I would have known sooner about Geocaching. I should thank Garmin for putting the Geocaching icon on some of its receivers. Without that I would have never have known about Geocaching.

I plan on placing a few of my own caches soon, I went out and bought a couple of ammo boxes. Just waiting on permission and the right time to go out and do it.

Welcome to the game. Always fun to hear how others came to discover it, I guess that little icon has merit!

I have a Camry myself. Trekkin' has a Saturn.

Snow, who stops caching due to a little snow...slow down maybe, stop never.

Either way if you get down in SE Wisconsin area we are always looking to team up with other cachers and have some fun

I haven't stopped because of the snow, I learned to how to geocache in this stuff. It can be -17 out and I will still be out there looking. Not for too long at those temps but I will be out looking. Thanks for the offer to team up. I normally don't venture that far south of the Valley. Oshkosh at the most, Fond du Lac at the greatest. I mainly go north to visit family and friends. If anyone is wanting to team up in Oshkosh, the Valley or Green Bay I am interested.

Nah I don't own a Ford, the only Ford I ever drive is the F350 at work, and that is rare.

Welcome! I also live in Menasha, and am also a rookie. So many caches close to home, you won't be bored. Is your wife also involved in geocaching? If you can't beat 'em, join 'em, as the saying goes. The forums are a lot of help, attend events as you are able, and get out there when you can!

Thanks for the welcome. My wife hates the cold so she hasn't gone out with me recently. Come spring I bet she will be out with me though.

Welcome, ToyotaRyan!

But you are too polite and well-mannered for this knock-down, drag-out organization. Imagine, responding to everyone's post! Your folks taught you well, or else you are just trying to rack up the posting numbers. wink

Naw, we can use someone like you. Again, welcome!
