View Full Version : An Introduction

08-19-2004, 10:14 PM
I joined the site this week and thought I'd go ahead and introduce myself. My name is Michele and I cache with my 9 year old son Joshua and an occasional tag along. We've hit several caches in the Charleston/ Ozark area and even a few on our trip to California back in June. Josh has mild CP so I have to watch the terrain difficulties on the ones we try. I really kick myself when I forget this little fact. :roll: He really enjoyed the ones that AR Stickerdude's sons put out. We plan on heading out again Saturday weather permitting. Any suggestions for ones he'd get a kick out of?

Anyway, great site and much fun for us. Hope to get to know some of you better. :D

There is alot of caches around the fort smith and Van buren area that you could easily get. I will give you a list that would be perfect for you. By the way, what is CP?

Here they are.

These are some of the ones I found with little problem. I hope you have fun and if you need any help you can call me too. I am West @ 459 3921
Good Luck!

Those are gret luckwest but I don't think they could hit Pricilla because it is on the side of a hill. There is also Goldtrap. Boo if you have any questions call anytime.

West and Dude..... thanks for the help offers. Is it ok to program you into the cell and use you as lifelines? :lol: Sometimes it just ain't our day. As for CP, it's Cerebral Palsy. Josh's is mild and he actually did quite well today on some more difficult terrain but I did turn back at the down by the creek cache. Steep areas, rocky areas or major undergrowth all are very slow going for him. I did buy him some hiking boots Friday and they seemed to help.

I have been saving the Ft. Smith caches to do with some friends there. I don't know where we'll head next..... Ft. Smith or Clarksville.

Again, thanks for everything.

You can call anytime, after 5 during the week and feel free to call during the weekend I am sure that I am out geocaching my self or I can take you to some. Would nice to meet some new faces. There is a lot more ones with easy terrain. I usually put alot my self with mostly flat terrain.

Boo I have my own business so call me anytime you want I ALWAYS have my phone with me.

Cool, hopefully we'll start warming up to these micros and not need to be rescued! We most generally cache on the weekends anyway because I work until 5:30 or 6.

We met firefreaks and demonic this weekend. Firefreaks drove by while we were at the Cachemas tree and demonic came to our aid after 30 min. of fruitless labor.

Thanks to all for making us feel welcome to the hunt.
