100 FINDS!!

We reached our first milestone in Geocaching today...we found our 100th cache. It really is not a big number, as we have seen people online that have over 10,000 finds, but it is our first notable milestone. We chose a challenging cache that was recommended by a well known husband and wife team from our area. This cache was located in Kaukauna. We started the morning with only 84 finds, so we planned 16 plus caches so we could get to this specific one for number 100. When we pulled up to the area we noticed that where the cache was supposed to be was actually in the middle of a baseball field. Hmmmmm...we were told this was going to be a challenge, but how the hell do you hide an ammo can in the middle of a baseball field....we instantly knew this cache had to be under us! Sure enough, we did some lookind around and found a culvert concealed in a nearby woods. Well good thing we had the mag-lite with us, cuz we were going to need it. Check out the pictures!!

Here is our entrance!!


260 Feet from the entrance....not as easy as it sounds, the culvert was only 5' tall, so we were crouched the whole way. Not only that, there was water flowing so we had to waddle the whole way with our feet 3 feet apart, or walk in the water on the super slippery scum bottom. If it was easy everyone would do it, and it would not be such a great cache for number 100.

Next up....# 200!!

Back at it

It felt good to be back in the shop today, I have been sick with a sinus infection since Monday. Today I got three projects started. The oak tabletop, doors for an armoire, and another cutting board. The shop always looks like a bomb went off...but just wait till all three of these projects are going full swing.

Tonight Ruth and I did 6 more geocaches in the Brandon area. We try to take some time a couple nights a week to squeak a few in, it is allot of fun, good exercise, and we see some cool sights. We hope to soon reach our first milestone of 100 finds.

Still Alive

Hey...yes I am still alive. I have been busy working my normal job, and have been spending some time in the shop. Ruth and I have been doing some GeoCaching and what not.
This week begins some serious shop time, we have some projects that need to get done, and I want to get to it. So keep checking in on the progress, hopefully I keep the updates a little more up-to-date.
