11/26/08 – Geocaching In The News

Posted in In The News on Nov 26, 2008

Yep, we’re still here! :) Unfortunately, we have been so busy lately with everything but Geocaching! We had a harddrive failure several weeks ago and we were without a computer for several weeks.

With winter coming (and it’s here now!) we had to get the garden ready for it’s annual sleep, clear the summer fun furniture off the patio and try to get those things around the yard that we have been putting off since June. Then the snow came and of course there was theā€¦ LOL! Ahh, the fun never ends!

Anyway, we’ll try to catch up with several Geocaching related news happenings that have been going on:
