Has she really been caching for just over a year? Yes! But it seems I've known her for much longer. AngelFreak is one of the most enthusiastic people I have ever met. When she gets interested in something, she dives right in. (Go ahead, ask her about couponing ... I dare you!) You can always count on her to be optimistic about upcoming events and I believe she really enjoys her role as the MBGA's Event Coordinator! Having assisted in that role over the years, I can tell you that sometimes it's not easy, and often hard to please everyone. I think she's doing a great job and is definitely an asset to the MBGA Executive. Having read through her responses below, I just realized that she missed an interesting item. Did you know that AngelFreak's first 507 geocache finds were done without the use of a GPS? I've heard other people have cached that way, but not to that extent. That takes a lot of dedication! Join me in congratulating AngelFreak on being the MBGA's Geocacher of the Month for November.
Have you ever tried to get a FTF (First to Find) in the last year or so? Think you've missed out by only a few minutes? I think I know why, and they're the MBGA Cacher of the Month: klblue. Sometimes I think that "k" (Ken) never sleeps. It doesn't matter what time of day the caches are published, he's soon on site signing the logs. I've been fortunate to meet the entire family Mom, Dad and 2 little Blues. They're lots of fun to be around and very enthusiastic about the game. Let's learn more about them:
I think I'm dyslexic. No! Really! I didn't have any problems reading this geocacher's name. (The 'G' is silent, right?) Gnirips has been caching for just over 1 year and has already amassed over 1,500 finds, and has placed 60 caches so far. If my math is right, that's 3.8 caches found per day and 1 cache hidden every week. That's a pretty impressive feat and is definitely why they were chosen as September's Manitoba Geocacher of the Month. We may want to introduce them to the Cachaholic Anonymous (GC1B70P) cache.
Skoki and Geocache at Machu Picchu
I have met Skoki at several geocaching events over the last few years. The one I remember the most is a breakfast event at the Smitty's on south Pembina. I had a chance to chat with her, Swelbergen and icimondo. A great group of women! All very positive and smiles. Skoki is one of our valued educators in Winnipeg. Not only is she a school teacher, she often brings her students out to find caches. I'm sure many future generations of geocachers will come from these classrooms. Read on to find out more about this month's Cacher of the Month.
I had seen several cache logs by someone named "ruylopez". I recognized the name as being Spanish, but didn't know what it meant. I knew that "muy" means "many" or "very", so I just figured it was a spelling error and that he was just Very Lopez ... of course, I was wrong about that. Although, knowing the word muy helped with my pronunciation of this caching name ruylopez = Roo-ee-lo-pez. I did finally have a chance about a month ago to ask what the meaning of his name was, and had to face-palm when he told me, as I had recently been asking him many questions about how to solve the Bobby vs. Boris cache. Of course, he would know how to solve this cache!?! I had the opportunity to meet his wife and son at the 2010 Hallowe'en event at the corn maze. His son makes an adorable dragon. Ruylopez has been caching for just over a year and has already found over 3,000 geocaches. That's approximately 7 caches a day... quite impressive.
