About Me

My photo
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.

A Definite Whoda' Thunk!

A while back I noticed that the Pa Wilds was having a photo contest.  This contest had 6 different categories and one of them involved my favorite subject and that would be Wildlife.  By the time I became aware of the contest the deadline was just days away.  I decided to submit a photo but at this time I also noticed that photographers could literally submit a photo everyday and I heard later that some sent close to a hundred pics.  How's that for getting discouraged right from the start. 

When the contest winners were announced I couldn't believe that my photo had taken 2nd place.  It's my understanding that over 2700 pictures were submitted.  Now if that isn't a Whoda' Thunk I don't know what is.  I also ended up winning the Grand Prize and got some awesome prizes.   I do believe this would be a Double Whoda' Thunk!

Here's a photo taken at the reception that was held for us at the Winkler Gallery in Dubois.  It was a very nice event hosted by the Pa Wilds.  Our thanks goes out to Sara from the Pa Wilds and also Jamie for her efforts.  Another big thank you to Perry Winkler who so generously made this event possible at his amazing gallery.  Another special thanks to Paul for giving us the informative grand tour.
