    Yes. We have talked about your program before and I think its great that you are having so much success. I have been trying to discipline myself to do a similar thing on the days that my son is at school. Weight and fitness are very important issues to me as I have type 2 diabetes.

    Though my numbers are usually pretty decent, it does not take much to throw them off. I have even been thinking about keeping a journal.

    I know its something I just gotta do, and as I do it more and more it will be easier to commit to it I would think.

    Also, my wife and I want to get into snowshoeing this winter as well.

    I always thought that snowshoeing my way to caches and continueing my addiction into winter was a good idea. I must admit, however that I was completely unable to find 99% of the caches that were buried in snow. One I missed by 2 feet and went back for in April. The rest I'm too embarassed to talk about. I think I will stick with skiing at the loaf once or twice a month. I am debating the ups and downs of guardrail caching in winter though. I really miss it in the colder months. djgray, I find your ability to set your goal and stick to it amazing. I've tried the gym and diets in the past, and find that I lack the willpower. Although the most I want to do is lose 15 lbs and get back into some type of shape. 50 lbs is amazing. Keep up the good work for the rest of us!!

    Why can't we get a government sponsered tick eradication program?

    Hey all. Thought I would pop in again. I've been a little absent lately as I didn't cache for most of the winter. I've gotten out and hit a few lately and am excited to get back out. Found this post of mine from a while ago. More great news is that I've now lost a total of 107 pounds since June 1st '08. I'm excited to get back out there with you all. Hope to see you soon.

    The farmer gave permission to place the cache in the field, but the bull charges.

    Fantastic!
