lutzie86: So I definitely fell off the grid for a spell. But I came back and realized an entire relay came and went in the process. Congrats RV on the win! I was so inspired by your series that I did a cache run in Concord today and found all three. :) Oct 17, 2020 19:34:06 GMT -5

Cleo73: Thanks. I'm finding I have to expand my geocaching radius, so thought this might be a good forum to get to know and to be kept in the loop for geocaching opportunities to the Charlotte area. Am planning a couple group day trips for geocaching in the area. Dec 19, 2019 7:36:39 GMT -5
