Good morning! Just wanted to quickly introduce myself. I'm a stay-at-home Mom from Menomonee Falls and I recently started geocaching with my family. It's a fantastic way to inexpensively see parts of the state and discover things we wouldn't normally see.
I look forward to meeting some of you at some point. We're new at this so if we make mistakes, please forgive us! LOL
Thanks to everyone who offered such great caches for us to find so far!

Greetings from the east (Ozaukee County)!
I like your geo name.
Enjoy geocaching and visit this website often .. it's the best was to get to know people ... that and going to the WGA picnic in August! You better be there, it's less than an hour north of you.

Hi - I'm a stay-at-home-sometimes, but-often-take-kids-caching mom too. We went to our first picnic last year with 20-something finds to our name, and met lots of great people! So we hope you can attend too. If not, then maybe we will catch you on the trails sometime! Happy caching.

Welcome! I'm a mom too. I work part-time and am a mom and wife the rest of my time. (I always joke that my outside of the home work is my break from my real job!) I have one kiddo and he's 8 now. I originally thought geocaching was going to be a great family bonding activity to get us all off the couch. It's pretty much my hobby now, lol. I long for school to start again so I can have a day here and there where I can drop Little Fishcacher off at school and take off and go caching for the day! Image

I agree that it is a wonderful way to see parts of the area we normally wouldn't see. I've hardly left my county and I've seen sooooo many beautiful places! As for the "inexpensive" part you mention.... That could be up for debate. Image

LOVE your screen name! Does it have a special meaning? Maybe we'll meet you at the picnic in August.

Thanks! Well, for fun I work for a Direct Sales gourmet food business and their logo is . . . you guessed it . . . a purple artichoke. When coming up with a username, I had just gotten done looking at something with the logo and it's the first thing that popped into my head. I guess it beats "Empty Toilet Paper Roll" LOL

Hey.. I kinda like That one.... then again Purple ear tickler is a good one too. Now I'm hungry PurpleArtichoke. Got any Pink Eggplant??

Got half my ID frmm Digital_Dan... he always called me Bunny (cause I'm so fast....NOT because I multiple LOL). Never knew the scouting song BunnyFooFoo and thought it was more of a term of endearment. The I read the lyrics....laughed.... and BunnyFuFu stuck! Bad bunny, baaaaaaaaaaaaad bunny!! hehehe

Welcome PurpleArtichoke, to a very addicting SPORT!! See ya on da trails.

Da Fu
