Boating and Geocaching

Wayfarer and I were interviewed by a reporter last month, and are now featured in an article in the May issue of Lakeland Boating Magazine!

How'd we get involved in that, you ask? I'll tell you. There was a post on the Groundspeak forums asking if any geocachers were also boaters. I thought, Gosh, we've done that, so I answered the post.Boating at Door County Amazingly, no one else did. So the next thing I know, we're in a feature magazine article! Here's the photo they used. That's me at the helm of my brother-in-law, Dave's, boat. That's the lovely wayfarer on my right. Dave is seated in the bow, and his wife, wayfarer's sister, is the one in the orange top. Another brother-in-law salutes from the stern. This picture was taken last summer Fishing at Horseshoe Isalndin Fish Creek Harbor, Door County, Wisconsin, on Lake Michigan. (Click photos to enlarge.)

Here's a picture of me fishing with the nephews later that same day. In the background is Horseshoe Island in Green Bay. We found the only geocache on the island.

Our best find of that trip was a FTF out on Chambers Island. The island is several miles out into Lake Michigan and was the farthest we've ever ventured out there. Luckily, it was a lovely day for boating. The article mentions our geocaching on Lake Minnetonka. Funny thing about that, this winter, people were walking out on the ice to score those geocaches!
