    2. What is your GC name? Masterson of the Universe

    3. What kind of GPSr do you use? Garmin 60csx

    4. What is your favorite feature on your GPSr? Expandable Memory, Color screen, Adding all my found caches as Points of Interest for later finding with newer cachers.

    5. What is your best memory of geocaching? Doing Eagle Eye Stash as number 500 and having a good group of cachers there to share it.

    6. What is the furthest from your house you’ve ever found a cache? This would be the 2001 Ft. Mclarey cache. Yes, every one of my finds is in Maine at this time.


    7. What is the hardest cache you ever found? GC1FXB6 Bingham Overlook. I parked at the bottom of the hill and climbed straight up. There my have been an easier way but i couldnt find it.

    8. What is the most amount of caches you’ve completed in one day? 124 on the Stud Mill Road on July 3rd 2009.

    9. How did you get started in geocaching? I heard about it from Wendy (Drwhogrl) in 2005, bought a GPS, tried it and got hooked.

    10. What is the silliest mistake you’ve made while geocaching? While doing the Stud Mill Road series, missing loading a whole road of caches which would have made it a 140+ day.

    11. What memorable animals have you encountered on the trail? Ive not been lucky enough to see much beyond deer, eagles, an owl, and a porccupine.


    12. What is your favorite earthcache?I have only done 3 or 4 of them but I guess the favorite would be the Roadcut cache at the Penoboscot Bridge.

    13. When do you geocache most often? (Season? Time of day?) I cache the most during the summer. I prefer a nice warm evening to a freezing cold or rainy day.

    14. Who do you usually geocache with? Most often its with Wendy but I cache alone more with people.

    15. Have you ever logged a find on one of your own caches? If not, would you? No I haven't and don't plan on it anytime soon.

    16. What is the most consecutive days you’ve gone caching and had a find? I believe its only 4. This summer that will change a bit I hope.

    17. How do you feel about people who “collect” trackable items? I hate it when my trackables don't get moved along or disappear. They are out there to move, not end up in someones collection.

    18. Is it all about the numbers for you? Numbers are fun but I see it as a number of memories and places I've been, not just a number of logs signed.

    19. What have you learned since you started geocaching? More than anything, ive had a refresher course on math due to some of the puzzles around. Other than that, some basic GSAK knowledge and that there are more little trail systems around than you might ever know about without the hobby.

    20. What is the most interesting travel bug or geocoin you have discovered? Probably the most interesting coin(s) is Barry's 5 piece coin set in the form of puzzle pieces.

    What is Meh?
    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.

    "Meh" is an interjection, often used to show a feeling of "whateverness" or possible boredom. However, it can also be used to indicate agreement or disagreement. It can also be an adjective, meaning mediocre or boring.
