Kinda new to the area, transplanted from the Keystone State via the Sunshine State. If I make it out caching this weekend I will hit 100 caches in Wisconsin, so time I say Hello, looks like I will be playing in you area for a while.

Hello, and Welcome!

I'm curious as to the differences in caching in WI vs the other states you have been- anything stick out?

Wisconsin has a lot more natural area for use for more than hunting than PA. City vs Woods is the big difference. http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GCJYCH is one of the more unusual but not my taste. Each area developes it's own flavor. In Jax the do a lot of mirco, and nano's they seam to think that location isn't as important as numbers, and hard hides. So far most if the caches I've done here WI I have enjoyed, a nice mix of easy hikes with some hard ones mix in. To me the location is the most important thing about caching. Well I rattled on hope I answered your question.

It doesn't seam like it was any time at all I was saying Hello to the group, and now I find myself having to say good bye. I may be out of the area but WI will remain in my thoughts. I will be taking some good memories and some great friends with me. I just sorry I didn't get a chance to meet even more of you, who know where I may land next, the life of a nomad.

Lois and as company Scruff-a-pot-amus.

Sorry to see you go. I enjoyed meeting you in Chippewa and thought about your little dog as I wandered a cache in Wausau (in the swamp, but frozen over when I found it) that you had written about your little creature's problems with. I hope you find yourself playing in Wisconsin dirt again, someday.

Good bye LJ and yer little doggie too!!!!! Say bye to Scruff!!!

One of my highlights of the past summer was the day that I got to go cachin with you north of Antigo. I had a really great time that day, riding in yer ol truck, and Jesse enjoyed meeting Scruff as well. We did some great caches that day, especially the 3 part mult that we met at, that was just awesome, Quiet Waters, I think it was called.

Anyway, once ya get settled, send me your home coordinates, and I will stop by for a day of cachin with ya. I havent cached in WV yet, and it is not that far of a drive from Toledo, which I will probably go back to next fall or maybe next spring, and then I can take a lil drive down to WV. I like your taste in caches, and agree a good cache is all about being in a good location.

Eventually, I will find the right spot for an orange 55 gallon drum cache, that will be the right size for ya to find. Wink Even though I havent found the spot for it yet, I got the name of the cache picked out: The LJ Special.

Lj,

We're sure going to miss having you around here. It was nice to share our campfire with you, Rick, and the Bandits the other weekend. Now that you're off in a new PQ we can lower all our caches. Shocked

Lj is missed Lj you certainly will be missed. However, maybe I'll get invited to the campfire w/ Rick and the Bandits next time because there will be room for me now. Laughing Keep your eyes open.
