I am going to dedicate a day of caching specifically for finding my official and unofficial DNFs and my Did Not Attempts (e.g. due to high muggle traffic, or physically unable to get the cache, like being short!). Most of these are in the Menasha/Neenah/Appleton area, with a few in the local outlying areas.

The date will either be Sat. July 18 or Sun. July 19, depending if anyone wants to go along and has a preference. I am still compiling my list, but if anyone who goes has specific ones to find, DNF or otherwise, we can make a morning of it, the afternoon, or even the whole day.

Post or PM, and more details will follow as the date approaches.

If they're in the Menasha/Neenah/Appleton area, you will need a DNF/DNA week! Or month! We have a few there ourselves, but can't make the "tour" weekend. Sounds like this could be a monthly event! wink

Good luck on the finds!

Alright! Someone else is giving a Tour!

Count me in .......

Miata will probably want to go as well, since he never caches his own local area!

The caches we didn't find in Appleton, etc., were ones under the snow, ones where we couldn't find the containers (some seemed pretty easy Embarassed ), and ones we had researched but didn't have time to look for that we still want to do.

We have some puzzle solves that we intend to look for on our own next time we're in town, and if we haven't solved certain puzzles on our own yet, well, we just won't look for those until we do. Most of the fun on puzzle caches is making the solve, and the find is the icing on the cake.

So, no puzzle tours for us. Enjoying a day of caching with others? No problem.

Still making the list. Think of me as seldom|cacher. Basic Garmin eTrex. Minimal technology grasp. I just went over a 100 finds not too long ago, and didn't realize the importance of logging DNFs until recently, so I have to go through my scraps of notes and fading memory to figure out which ones to do. I'd hardly call it a tour. The only seldom|seen cache I ever found was at Pierce Park for the CITO. None of my DNFs are high difficulty or terrain, so it is not like most of the experienced cachers who have been to the Fox Cities haven't found them. It's more of an excuse for me to get a little help and see why I am missing the obvious. I wouldn't expect folks to make a cross state trip for this. If you are in the area and have any caches you haven't found, we can do those too.

Didn't you both just clear the Fox Cities on May 19?

The date will be Saturday July 18.

So far my list has 28 caches on it. If you are coming and want to add your own DNFs or any that you just haven't sought out yet, just let me know how many, not necessarily which ones. I expect to add more of my own DNFs in the next few weekends, so my list will grow. Or maybe shrink...I want to revisit a few of them before July.

Update

Cache list is up to at least 40, but I found a few now, so that is good. So far it is just Marc and I, and it looks to be a half day, starting at 7 a.m. and going until we are done. Post or PM if you plan to come. More details will follow as the date approaches.

I think Jamie and I would love to join this outing. It's kind of bad, but we have few DNF's on our list. But I guess a few is still enough!!!! Email me with the details and where to meet. Thanks
