Thanks everyone for the congrats.
It's amazing how the sport has grown in just my year of involvement. I was looking at an old email I sent to our neighbor that joins us every once in a while; it was dated 8-11-01 and we had 36 finds. At that time I was amazed I found that many. I sent him the Dan Miller ranking page for Wisconsin (yes I am competitive and check the rankings), it showed Lil Otter with 243 finds and jthorson with 192 as the top two. When I was at 100 I never thought I would make 300. But I did. It's incredible how far everyone has come in a short period of time. Just think, I only need 878 to catch Lil Otter now. I hope by our second anniversary the sport has grown as exponentially as on our first.
I have huge amounts of gratitude for those that place the caches. This weekend we found two fabulous caches (Dr.Evermore&Lady Elenor & PeeWee's (Pewit's) Small Falls) and are always glad to view things we would not have seen without geocaching.
Thanks again from the Geotrippers (Mike, Cindy, Morgan & Will)

It's happening! Right now we have a hotter crop of newbies than we have had at any other time this past year. In the past 90 days we have had about 150 newbies join us and there have been more than 50 new caches placed in Wisconsin. In the past 90 days, we have seen some of the most creative caches - Mother Goose and her Goslings, Jingle Bell Rock, The puzzles of Washington County and Fewer 1/1 drive-by virtuals. The past 90 days have been Winter, the next 90 days will be Spring.

The next 90 days will bring another 150 newbies and more. We will see more than fifty caches in the Metro-Milwaukee area, another 50 caches in the Fox valley-Door County area, fifty more in the Chippewa Falls-River Falls area and another fifty in the Madison-Janesville area. These new caches will be of greater quality and fresh challenges.

Wisconsin Caching is where it is at, and we are proud to be part of it.

I am guessing it's 'The Powers That Be' --- See why I love those puzzle caches.

Arn,
I'm guessing that Ken knew all along. He is reminding me that jargon isn't always understood. I need this...
BTW any bets on the projections?
oops.. I did it again.
[BTW=by the way]

Nope, I actually didn't know what you meant. Thanks for clarifying for us SOTUT (slow on the uptake). Image

Nearly 300 e-mail invitations to join have been sent out in the past few days to Wisconsin cachers who have logged caches in the past year. Let's see if that shakes a few loose.
