One of the nice things about having a blog is that I get to share experiences and opinions with fellow geocachers -- and anyone else who happens to stumble into this site. It also means I get to post whatever I want even though I said this blog would be about geoache reviewing. Well, I can digress once in awhile, right? In that vein, here's a photo taken last evening as I prepared for a little moonlight kayaking on Lake Michigan out of Kenosha harbor. There were thunderstorms earlier in the evening but they were moving to the east over Michigan by the time we launched from the beach and watched the moon rise over the lake. Evenings like this one make you appreciate being outdoors while most people are inside in front of the TV.

WGA picnic event

On Saturday I attended the annual Wisconsin Geocaching Association picnic -- carpooling with fellow reviewer WGA2, who also goes by great ID of Should've_Bought_Him_The_Tie. (If you don't know the story behind that ID, he'd be happy to tell you.) These WGA events are always well-organized -- ever since I helped organize the first one in 2001. :) The 2007 picnic was held at Wildcat Mountain State Park in western Wisconsin, which is not far from the famous Elroy-Sparta bicycle trail. The rolling hills in this park provided some very steep up and down trails for the 90 or so geocachers who attended. "Tie" and I brought our mountain bikes along and got quite the workouts on those hills.

Interview on is posted

I didn't realize it until I read Bumanfam's comment here on yesterday's blog post, but has posted its latest weekly podcast and it includes the interview I recorded with them earlier this summer at the Midwest Geobash. Thanks, Sonny & Sandy, for including me in your show!

The holiday is over

I received an e-mail today from a geocacher writing to make sure it was the recent Labor Day weekend and not a health problem on my part that prevented his geocaches from getting reviewed. So, before I dive back into the review queue, here's a quick note to Iowa geocachers to let you know I'm back on the job after being away from the Internet for a couple of days. No illness or injuries here. Thanks for your concern!
