Q and A with Wildwilly
Q: Where do you call home?
Q: Where does the name Wildwilly come from?
A: I sometimes get a little over the top while out caching. When you cache with me you can expect things to get alittle “wild”
Q: When you are not caching, what do you do? (work and/or relax?)

A: I’ve been caching just over two years.
Q: How did you find out about geocaching?
A: I read a blurb in the paper about geocaching and a CITO event that was going to be taking place in Shorthills Park.I showed up to see what it was all about and before the event was over I was hooked!
Q: Have you gotten anyone else involved in the sport?
A: I promote geocaching like it is a religin. I have encouraged at least 6-7 people to start caching. They are allregular’s now.
Q: What gear do you use for caching?
A: GPS is Colorado 300 by Garmin. Shoes/boots are nothing but Merrell Footwear. If my clothing doesn’t have Marmot onthe label….I will not wear it.

Q: Any recent highlights you would like to share?
A: I recently placed my 100th hide.
Q: Any thoughts on caching you would like to share?
A: I wish the NPCA would be a bit softer on geocaching.There should be a public ban on all drive up caches!
Thanks to Wildwilly for taking time out between finding caches to share a few moments with all of us. Always looking forward to reading about your adventures.
