 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
Retired and love to travel with Carol, my LOVING Wife of 55+ years..     We love to Geocache while we travel. Our best GeoVacation was; between May 25th, 2011 thru Aug. 4, 2011.. We drove our Pick-up and 5th wheel travel trailer to Alaska. We put on over 11,600 miles to, in, and around Alaska, National Parks of Alberta and British Columbia, Canada, Yellowstone NP, and back home to Iowa. We found almost 400 Caches up/back. We even found some Caches "above" the arctic Circle.. (About 200 miles North of Fairbanks, AK.) What a beautiful State Alaska is.. .  We would both like to again go to the "Land of the Midnight Sun"..
