Cacher of the Month - April 2008


Dwarf & The Giant (JayPeg)
Dwarf & The Giant (JayPeg)

  1. When did you start Geocaching?
  2. It all began back in April 06 when I went to visit the 212s at their cabin. They said I had to try this thing called geocaching. Not so reluctantly we went to my very first cache Warning I shall Wear Purple– II. So I blame Ginny212 and this first find with getting started on my addiction. A month later I had to go back and sign the log.

  3. What was it about geocaching that got you hooked into the game?
  4. I have always enjoyed computers and collecting maps.
