Finally decided to join WGA. Been caching only a few months, and got in to caching because of coworker OC1GuyWI.

Hoping to make the Geo Picnic this year.

Be patient with my finds and hides as I am still learning.

I love the caching game thus far!

Welcome ToastyTubes! You'll be glad your co-worker got your hooked, though your wallet, calendar, and/or family may not be...enjoy geocaching, and ask for help here in the forums. Lots of experienced cachers can post their advice for you. I have learned a lot in a year. Good luck with your hides, too!

Welcome Toasty Tubes!!!!

Thanks for all the hides that you and OC1 and Pack have been putting out around here....You guys are quite the infusion of new blood in the Eau Claire area, and I appreciate it.

I see you stopped at the cache in my front yard today. Sorry I missed ya, as I decided to take a trip to Barnes for a caching event with WI Zumette. So, I am still looking forward to meeting ya.

I was gonna let someone else get the FTF on your replacement for the Otter Creek Oxbo. The original was wonderful, and I will be out tommorrow to get the redux version whether it has been found by someone else or not. Excellent spot for a cache.

Hey zuma thanks. Yeah, I traded a 100 find coin OC1 gave me Thursday. I want to see it travel, plus I need some for a trip.

The first Otter Creek cache was kind of a bummer for me. I had really hoped the themed cache thing would be cool. I had a LOT of stuff in that cache, and it got muggled pretty quick. Oh well live and learn. The Redux is way scaled back. I think that area gets a lot of local kids messing around. I'm sure I'll stop back sometime for a coin trade again!

The first Rocket series was quite the adventure, and I got a nasty case of infected poison ivy out of it. (never had trouble with Poison Ivy before, so it was a real bummer)

Thanks for the warm welcome all.

I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions as time goes on!

Saw your name on a bunch of logs yesterday, and found one of your hides. Looks like you're doing fine so far!
