23716Re: I'm Surrounded by Things to Find?!
- Nov 30, 2007So, Bruce, when do you want to go caching? There are skads of us with
GPSr's in hand just WAITING to go out with a new geocacher and
experience once again the WONDER that was ours when we found our first
Oh, my number is six three two - six two zero six ... when you're ready
to schedule a caching trip ... AND I'm the local ''geocaching hotline''
if you need to phone a friend while you're on the trail!
