Posted by Gimpy on Feb. 21 2003,1:26 amHey, Mikechim. Whats up? Haven't heard from you in a while. What do you mean, bored at work? What are you doing working? I figured you'd be hanging around Arizona or some other warmer climate sleeping in the back of your truck. Good to hear from you.
Posted by mikechim on Feb. 21 2003,10:17 pmHi Gimpy, I only wish . With the grad app process coming to an end I'm hoping to get back into caching. I leave tomorrow for interviews at and I've already been accepted at OSU so most of the pressure is off and I can get back to caching. I've got some people at work all fired up to go, (we did a winter backpacking trip two weekends ago, a foot of snow going in and a foot and a half coming out ). Plus I've got to get in gear and get my Two Towers cache out and another long one I've been sitting on for 6 months.
Nice thing about taking time off is there's close to 20 caches in Erie that I haven't hit yet!!!
