We are a family of 4 Tim, Kari, Kamilla (3 years old) and Alivia (4 months old). We've done about 4 searches to date. I've got my mom involded in it also. We're looking forward to the weather getting a bit better so we don't have to bundle the kids up so much. Hopefully we can get to the Event in May to meet some of you.

That would be great!
We also are looking forward to caching without snowpants soon...but not looking forward to bugs.

Welcome to the addiction!

Welcome to Wisconsin Geocaching. I am sure that you will discover things about Wisconsin you have never known. You will see new things that Geocaching brings to you. And, you will be reading into places that you never thought you would have in the quest for that darn geocache!

My number one piece of advice ... that no one gave me last year (thanks alot) ... Come late May, ALWAYS have your bug spray with you, they will start biting mid-cache and never stop until fall. We had it in the car, must get to car, but noooooooooooo, we're in the woods. We had our "first no find" ever when we went screaming out of the woods on 6/5/04; we were too itchy to do anything more that day.

Welcome to the fun!

Prepare yourself for plenty of great times, and few scratches. If the mosquitos are not out, the woodticks will be. Image

Thanks everyone. I'm "itching" to get out there. I don't mind bugs too much, ticks on me, no problem but getting them off my daughters? Not liking that thought.

Is there an easy way to find winter friendly caches?

I look for ones that have recently been found by others. Image And sometimes on the cache page, the placer will note if it is winter friendly or not.

Children or babysitter permitting, goal is 75 by end of summer, 100 would be wonderful.

LOL @ finding the ones already found. I did that on one. LOL
