+WRASTRO Posted January 3, 2006 Share Posted January 3, 2006 Ok, so we aren't social butterflys but we have been out there banging around for two years now. The first GPS was a SporTrak (Christmas 2003) and the current unit is a Garmin 76CS (George goes on a spending spree!). We hit 700 finds in Maui last week and now have over 500 traditional cache finds and we are closing in on 300 travel bugs (not NBJPoppa numbers, but decent). We have met many wonderful people in our two years of geocaching so far and hope to meet many more in the years to come. It looks like a few more hides may be in our near term future (despite the fact that the Redmond/Kirkland area is totally infested). We would like to express our thanks and appreciation to the local cachers we have encountered and relied on for support the past two years and we want to express our thanks (in advance) to those we will encounter in the future. On our recent trip to Maui we met a true newbie (first day of caching) family and we hope that we helped them start on their adventures with a positive attitude and a sense of adventure. We do believe that is what our sport is all about. Special thanks to FrodoB, NBJPoppa, K7wave, Jcar, Andrewrj, Kiersolvd and Poodleranch for being friends and helping us along the way. Extra special thanks to Pepper for being an inspiration and a help when we were trying to figure out how this all works. Hunting (trouble) credits go to Beamin' Demon for many of our memorable finds. Please keep up the good work. The "how to spend time searching for but not finding award must surely go to loup-garou, aka bla-bla-bla (although the many "BD" cahces were big fun). Fun hides and hunts all around. We are finally starting to feel like "real" geocachers as our numbers grow and our enthusiasm continues. This is a great sport with great people and we look forward to playing for many years to come. Keep the fun growing, George (Gene), Jane (Barb), Elroy (Elroy), Judy (Judy), Team Wrastro Quote Link to comment
