Cacher of the Month - February 2011

I've known devildawg for many years. The first few times I remember seeing her, she was always accompanied by Harley, her dog. At first I thought she was shy, as she had only made it to a handful of events. But as I got to know her, that perception quickly disappeared. She always seems happy and talkative and is fun to hang around with. While we were out geocaching with Mhz last year, she surprised me with her monkey-like ability when she easily scaled a pine tree to retrieve one of the First In, Last Out caches. It was like she was defying gravity! As one of the city's Paramedics, I have a lot of respect for her. Now, if she'd only let me drive one of the ambulances with the sirens going, that'd be SWEET!

Netleyhunter is another one of those cachers who was initially an enigma. You saw his logs, and heard his name, but you never saw him. Or, did you? Often clad in camouflage, he blends in to the wooded areas quite nicely. This ability was probably developed over the years of being a hunter. The first time I had met netleyhunter was after the first Oak Hammock Marsh "Caching the Marsh" event. Junglehair and I were in search of the easternmost cache of the day. As we approached the area, netleyhunter was leaving the area with a DNF look on his face. He joined us and we soon had the cache in hand. In the vein of "many hands make light work", we found that "many eyes make quick finds". I've gotten to know netleyhunter over the years. He is a great guy to be partnered up with for any of the OHM events as he knows the lay of the land, and a lot of the data on the birds. In the handful of times that I've cached with him, I've always had a great time and have always learned a thing or two.
