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.

Tragedy in the winter of 1909.

We will never forget the night that we stumbled onto this memorial.  It was nearly dusk and we were a good ways from our vehicle and we couldn't believe what we were seeing.  It's important to note that this is definitely miles from any civilization and right smack in the middle of nowhere.  This gentleman must have been highly thought of by his hunting companions to have erected this memorial in his memory.  Whoda' thunk there would be something like this back in the boonies.  Ya' just never know what is around the next corner or over the next hill.  It's things like this that powers our curiosity.
