About Me

We are known as PaWingers or just The Wingers by our Geocaching friends. When we found our first cache we had to come up with a name to log the find. We came up with this name simply because of residing in Pa. and because one of our many passions is cruising this beautiful country on our Honda Goldwing. Aside from geocaching we are passionate about most anything outdoors including hiking, kayaking, snowmobiling and biking. We are blessed beyond words with a wonderful son and daughter in law. We're also blessed with some terriffic family and friends. We consider ourselves very fortunate due to the fact that after being married over 40 years we still enjoy these things together.

Some memorials are so monumental.

We ran into these two memorials in State College a few years back.  They really caught our eye because of their design..  What really caught our eye is the name on the motorcycle monument.  Whoda' thunk there would be our last name engraved on it.  The motor home was also awesome and the detail was amazing.  It seems as though every cemetery has monuments that stand out from the others.

Okay, let's move on to these next two memorials.  These were not located in a cemetery but instead we spotted these in places that you probably have driven by and never saw them.  Gotta say the one seemed real unusual.  Instead of the typical, RIP or Sadly Missed, this one simply has the name and "killed by a two ton rock".  Talk about getting away from mainstream.  The other one was also an eyecatcher.  We loved the engraving.  It was like they just began chiseling and then they decided they should insert the word "here".  Apparently the cross was chiseled first and then the text had to just fit in however it could.    We are always on the lookout for monuments in unexpected places and always causes the old "Whoda' Thunk"!!
