Just proves that I do not desire Dillon, I mean, er, Dylon, rats, I mean, Dylan. I know how to spell Zimmerman though. I can even spell his hometown of Hibingh.

Neil Young is the relevant object of SJ's desire here, right? Oh, y'all know that already, and I'm giving away Geocaching Trade Secrets.

I liked My Bodyguard.

While I was logging onto geocaching.com for the very first time, i was
eating some caramel corn that my student teacher brought in for me and I
bit down on a kernel and actually broke my tooth. A root canal, temp., and crown later was a very expensive introduction to geocaching. But it gave me a great story.

I heard about geocaching at a YMCA camp near Ely, MN. I had been reading a book "Lost in the Wild: Danger and Survival in the North Woods" by Cary J Griffith and when I got home tried lostinthewild but it was already taken. I tried foundinthewild and it was available so I used it. Good Minnesota book, also.

I'm a retired Navy Chief Petty Officer and my wife used to refer to herself as the Admiral. Commander & Chief just sounded better so she got busted in rank. Wink

When I first staterd cachen I worked at Treasure Island in Red Wing.
I tried (Thekid) as taht was a nick name from way back I also tried

Now I have moved and nolonger work for a casino but it makes for a confersation starter. and it sill works for me.

That's right Shipmate, Enlisted runs the Navy. Spent quite a bit of my career training our Junior O's. Most turned out to be pretty good leaders. My last tour was pushing recruits at Great Lakes. Kind of decided to go full circle. Fair Winds and Following Seas! OSC.

The name came from another hobby (or obsession as my wife calls it), Home Brewing. My other hobby of barbecuing/smoking meat, just didn't seem to be an appropriate name.

I built a radio controlled plane, and the graphics I put on it were “RudeRat”. At the field where I flew, everyone called each other by the name of their plane. Crashed the plane long ago, but the name stuck.
