Hey, 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. :grinnin  Good to hear from you. :wave

Hi Gimpy, I only wish  :D .  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  :grinnin ).  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!!!
