Indiana Cachers Hello !

Recommended Posts

What's going on Indiana? Forum kinda slow lately.

 

Well, we've been sidelined since right before Memorial Day weekend, when I (Mrs. Car54) tripped over a gas hose while filling up the truck. I dislocated my shoulder and chipped a chunk off the rounded upper part of the humerus (sp?) bone. When they fixed the dislocation, the bone chip floated back into place, but I have to keep my shoulder virtually immobilized till it heals so I can avoid having a plate & screws. I should get the all clear - on the bone, anyway - tendons/muscle outcome still unknown - next week, 2 days befire we fly out west on vacation. I'll still be in a sling, but I'll be able to move my shoulder and cache!

 

Now - aren't you sorry you asked? :D

I have an event scheduled for July 31 here at Potawatomi Wildlife Park.

 

Geocaching 101 program for the newbies and I am planning to archive all current caches on the park ASAP and put out fresh ones for the rest of you. Details to follow on the page (soon to be published) but event will be short and sweet running 9 -12 noon so participants have the day to nail some caches.

Nice park. Too bad I already have plans for that day or I would put it on my calendar to be there for the event. ;)

Hello fellow Hoosier cachers!

 

My sister, the_disco, got me started in NWI and now I can't stop!

 

I'm currently residing in Indianapolis and happy there are lots of caches to be discovered here.

Hello Indiana cachers! I'm a new cacher in the Fort Wayne area looking for a buddy to cache with. If anyone is interested in a +1 for caching let me know.

 

Welcome to the game!!!! When our work schedules allow it, we love caching in a group. You are fortunate to be in an area with so many caches to choose from to go after.

 

Take care & keep on caching,

Kelly & Barbie

New guy, been at it a week or so. I thought we'd try it out on our trip to the east coast. I think we're hooked.

I'm going to be back in IN for a short vacation and am looking for some caching suggestions in the Huntington area. I would like fun, challenging (but not too hard), kid-friendly (9-15 years) caches that take us to interesting places and would be good to introduce another family to geocaching. Puzzles or multis are welcome. Looking for that WOW factor. Any help would be appreciated.

Don't forget the Geocaching 101 and Potawatomi cache Bash this Saturday morning. This will be a pretty laid back event this round as I have a PPt for the newbies and the rest can trade items and nail the 9 new caches. I believe some newbies will be here so if anyone wants to take them out after their PPt program feel free to volunteer.

 

Event is 9 - 12 so you can cache the rest of the day.

All that needs is a lawn chair, some cavier and wine.

Over an hour away, so I don't think I'll get that far. Too many caches close to home to catch up on. Thanks for the info though!

Welcome to caching! There should be a group or event up your way where you can connect. Have fun.

Welcome to your new obsession! :ph34r: Both Bloomington and Indianapolis have VERY active social geo-communities. Be on the lookout for GiG dinners. We have them monthly, all over the Indianapolis area (FYI - the one in October will be on the South side). "GiG" officially stands for Girls in Geocaching, but the events are only hosted by women... the event is open for everyone to attend.

 

Happy caching!

Hello, I'm new to this, my son introduced me earlier this month. Using a droid, I seem to be having fairly good luck. I'm a cross country truck driver and have had a lot of extra time this trip so I have been finding some caches along the way. The hanging rock is less than 6 mi from the house, I was there many times as a teen, for a long time you couldn't go on top of it.

Is there any way to show on a map of the us the places you have found caches?

There are a couple of caches with in a mile of where I am now, but it's over 100 degrees out there and I'm not THAT crazy. Maybe about midnight. :P

Just curious if your daughter is Jillian. My boyfriend has worked with Jillian, at the Hammond Cabelas, for several years now regarding geocaching.

Hello Everyone!

I used to cache a lot more than I do now. I really miss getting out and doing some of the long hikes I used to. But since I lost some nerves in one leg, it makes it more difficult. But I definitely love to keep up with geocaching and I have been a rampant geocoin collector for years. So this summer, Luckie5892 and I put together the 2010 Indiana Geocoin. You can go to the following link for more information on it and how to order one. I hope you like it!

I'm definitely not caching in the woods since gun Deer season will be in full swing.
