    Hey by the way Qurious, love the play on your name for your GC name.
    Just smile it won't crack your face

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    In my own opinion . . . there's no feeling that can quite compare to the very first found cache. Honestly, I can't remember any of my milestone caches . . . but I'll always remember that first one.

    Thanks - I have always had a hard time thinking up user names. Reworking our last name into something that fits into geocaching was just fun. Then I shamelessly used my husbands truck for the avatar - anyone who drives around Maine has a pretty good chance of spotting it - sort of a moving benchmark... It might take a while but I will get the whole family excited about this - made them go with me to 2 caches this evening. They wouldn't admit it but I think they were impressed with how they were hidden. Good stuff.

    And isn't how your name evolved interesting as that is how hollora came to be......only as a kennel name. Last name, first names, anagrams and hollora evolved. Worked for a kennel and showing dogs, why not for other things.

    Welcome - enjoy - Cache On - Cache Happy!

    I like the flame paint job on the truck . . . however if you want I can make it look really good . . . life-like and realistic if you want . . . of course you and your husband probably wouldn't appreciate my handiwork afterwards.

    On the serious side . . . assuming you're an independent trucker . . . and if so . . . my thoughts are with you . . . since I know the price of diesel is a killer for independent truckers right now. I can control the cost of my heating oil usage by going to wood . . . and I can control the cost of my gasoline usage by limiting trips and using my car vs. the 4Runner . . . but truckers don't have those options (assuming your truck doesn't run on firewood or nuclear energy. )

    Actually I have a stomach ache right now . . . but that may be due to the fact that my bowels are irritated.
