I'm not exactly new to caching as I've been at this for about almost 3 months with about 161 finds as of this post.

But I'm new to the WGA board.

I am not a Wisconsin resident. I'm a Michigan resident though i have twice as many finds in Wisconsin than I do in Michigan as I live right on the border in Menominee, MI.

For the most part, I will continue to do more Wisconsin caches as there are not that many in the UP of Michigan and a lot of Wisconsin communities are closer to me.

I was introduced to the game by a newspaper article that I read sometime in the spring. After reading it, I thought it sounded like a fun thing to do and it is.

I already had a pocket PC when I got interested, so I simply bought a $100 bluetooth GPSr on sale for 30 bucks at a GPS store online, then downloaded a variety of caching software before finding one I like and have continued to use that software since. It works good for me.

Looking forward to running into some of you on the trails.

Welcome,
We are in Vilas County, and tend to have more MI caches in our radius than WI. So we know what you mean. We have Lake Superior North of us and Lake MI East of us. If you head over to our area, give us a shout.

Thanks for the welcomes. I'm looking forward to running into some of you on the trails and maybe do a caching run together.

After my poison ivy rash clears up on my arm a little bit, I'll be back out in the field sometime this week in my quest for my 200th find. I already have talked to a few people on some caches for my 200th find and hope to reach that goal on Thursday on my day off from work. Where I wanna go, I don't know, but I'll figure it out soon enough Wink

As for the poison ivy itself, don't ask where I got it. I don't know. I went on a nice run through several caches last week and noticed the rash showing up on my arm shortly after that. Could have been in any number of caches that I was in. I'll have to look through my records to see if there was any particular ones that may have poison ivy leaves near it.

It happens and it's part of the game. I'm not worried about it just as i'm not worried about ticks, stinging nettles, etc. I'm prepared for all that. Just gotta stock up on cortaid, triple AB, tweezers, etc. LOL.

Again, thanks for the welcomes.

Thanks, everyone.

Bartrod, nice one. I'll remember that. Wink

As I get closer to 200, I'll probably post in the other thread looking for someone else to cache with me for my 200th find. I still got like 34 to go as of this post, so it may be 1-2 weeks yet, depending on how often I go out in the field.

Welcome! I think I've seen your logs on a few of our caches already though I could be mistaken.

You are not mistaken. I found the Sincerest Flattery cache about a couple weeks ago. Loved the hide on that one. Only cache of yours I've found thus far, but not for long. I am planning to go after your letterbox hybrids within the new few weeks .

Thanks for the welcome.
