Was talking with another cacher who had a great idea, the WGA should adopt a mascot! Maybe "Wilbur the Woodtick", "Mona the Mosquito"?

I like the idea. The guy who thought of it is brilliant!

Too bad the badger is already taken, but there should be some animal that suggests "Wisconsin". A positive mental image would be much better than the ones elicited by mosquitos and ticks. Smile

Too bad GS uses Signal the frog, cause we're inundated with them down here. I've been pulling a minimum of 5 a day out of the pool for about two weeks. Might be the same 5 stupid frogs, but I see them everywhere I go now. They are tiny little things too. Usually about 1.5".

Yea a fat guy doing geocaching what a nice mascot lol. Not much of a role model there lol. And yes i am picking on myself and no one else just myself.

We should have one though maybe a deer holding a GPS.
