The WGA’s Lonely Cache Game Event ( http://coord.info/GC42G9K ) is coming up on Groundhog’s Day, Feb 2nd . Janks15 (Liz Hermann), bif-n-sons (Frank Conway) and I (Chris Walker) are putting together a PowerPoint to share. We are looking for stories and/or pictures of your Lonely Cache Game adventures from this past year.

PM me if interested. I can give you a different e-mail address where you can attach your photos and stories and we’ll add them. You can also add them to the photos on the WGA Facebook site and I can pull them from there if that is easier.

If you could add the GC number and what the fun was that would be perfect. Thanks.

Although I DNFd and it was Archived, (GCKATH) was my favorite Lonely last year. Took a nice picture of this bubbling spring hole in western Wisconsin.

My favorite Lonely experience of the year was the least lonely caching I did all year. I usually cache alone, but for GCGNRY, Marsh to the Phillipine Islands, I teamed up with a whole crew. In addition to being the first to find in over 13 months, we celebrated milestones of one sort or another for almost everyone in the crew. It was #2200 for me, and other members of the group celebrated #1700, #1000, #600, and #666. There are lots of pictures in our logs if you'd like to use them.

So I submitted a few photos already but I'll share a story or two as well since I just can't seem to help myself.

One of my favorite LCG experiences last year was going out to find a series of caches by Zuma in an Eau Claire county forest, can't remember the name right now but the final was GC1JJQD. I'd sent out a note on facebook that we were hunting lonelies and kungfuhippie joined us for half of them. We were looking at double, possibly even triple points, can't remember because it'd been so long since anyone had found them. It turned out that we were following Puffin tracks the whole way as they'd been there the day before so they got the triple points. We didn't mind though, it was still a beautiful walk through some fairly untamed and beautiful forest land. One plus was that they had replaced 2 of the containers that were missing so we were able claim finds on them. The funny thing was that we had approached it from Eau Claire since we'd been there the past few days so when we exited to the east to head home we realized that we had been playing all day in a preserve that we had been driving by for years as it is enroute to our land up north. We had said numerous times that we wanted to stop there "some day". How convenient!

Another memorable experience was heading out for GC23D9P, also by Zuma. I had an eye on the challenges out on the islands in Dells pond for quite a while, at least a year, and was working on completing them. I hadn't even noticed they were on the LCG list! I waited to walk out there on a frozen pond but with our mild winter it never happened. We spent Mother's Day weekend with my in-laws in Eau Claire, rented a canoe, and headed over to find the caches. It was so much fun and inspired us later in the summer to buy our own canoe. We also introduced a couple of family members to canoeing, they'd never done it before! Someone had beaten me to finding one or two of the caches out there so they had gone off the LCG list but that's OK, the caches were great fun!

Thanks for the posts and to those of you that have emailed me your adventure stories.

With just a couple of weeks left, I'm sending out the call for LCG stories and pictures from 2012.
