    I thought about adding cacher ID (too late after hitting post). I posted it on the group to gauge interest but hesitate to add personal info about my family

        Hi Amy,
        I don't think there's too much danger, since everyone is still online.  But I was thinking more from the respondent's point of view.  Would I just say yes, let's go, to a post with no name attached to it?  I'd want to go check out their profile, see if they're a legitimate cacher, see how many finds they have, which might tell me what "size" of caching trip they were interested in, etc.

        I've had HUGE success putting out requests just like yours, so I don't want to discourage you!  Another way to make connections is at an event.  Good luck!

        Cheers,
        Julie
