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.

Presque Isle is the home of Frank Furter.

I had asked the question on Facebook if anyone knew where this picture was taken.  He is affectionately known as Frank Furter and he lives at the entrance to Presque Isle right besides Sara's.  We had gone to Presque Isle yesterday to be beach bums for awhile and then we planned on hiking the Gull Point Trail. 

The Gull Point Trail is the place to be in November and April or thereabouts.  You might ask why that is.  It just so happens that at the very extreme end of Gull Point there lies a Natural Area that is a hotspot for migrating land birds and waterfowl.  This area is a popular stopover for birds heading from as far north as the Arctic Circle and Greenland and heading  south as far as South America. You see, this is right along a migration route known as the Atlantic Flyway.  The Atlantic Flyway is a favored route that is flown year after year and is favored because of the absence of high mountains and ridges in the flight path.

So this picture makes it into our Whoda' Thunk Blog because Whoda' Thunk Frank Furter lived so closely to the Atlantic Flyway.  Possibly one day I will make an entry into one of my Blogs about the wild and crazed Joe Root.  Whoda' Thunk I would mention Joe Root and not write anything about him.  Stay tuned because someday I will.

Frank Furter is quite the character.  He stand over 6 feet tall and has this strange habit of squirting ketchup and mustard on himself, a habit I don't really relish.  You can see him hot dogging in front of Sara's at the entrance to Presque Isle.
