PapaNonny Hit 1400!

Sunday was a gorgeous day, so we went geocaching and my mom and dad hit a milestone - 1400 caches!  Way to go!!

We cached for about 4 hours and visited the woods, some parks and a couple of industrial centers.

I like when we find unusual containers like these 2 different versions of a fly....

Sundays are a good time to hit up the industrial centers, because there usually isn't anyone around except for a few quacking ducks.  Notice we have no snow anymore and the lakes are completely thawed...

We walked along a nice bike path to get to this cache in the woods.....

 Here we have 3 generations of our family out geocaching together!

We even found a deer skull in the woods.  I wish I would have taken it home.  It would have made a cool geocache container.

This cache was cleverly hidden in the brick retaining wall...

We had one DNF.  It was supposed to be in one of these pine trees, but if it's there, we totally missed it.

We still had a good morning that resulted in 16 geocaches and the milestone for my parents.

Later yesterday evening my nephew stopped by with some freshly caught crappie for us.  Looks like the fishing is going to start early this year!


  1. CONGRATULATIONS! That is quite an accomplishment and something to be proud of for sure! I may never see that number in my lifetime at the rate I'm going, lol!

    Now, let's talk food.
    I love crappie, perch and walleye! Fillet them up and lay them out on a foil lined baking pan sprayed with non stick oil. Season with salt and pepper and a touch of oregano, squeeze a fresh lemon over them and apply a small "pat" of butter per fillet. And now for my secret ingredient; sprinkle generously with grated parmigiana cheese and finish with just a pinch of paprika. You can add a thin sliced lemon and some fresh parsley to each fillet for added flavor and appearance. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes and then bring them up to a "high" broiler just to color, crisp and finish (5 min) and there you have it. Works well with Mahi Mahi too.

    1. This sounds good and we are going to have to try this recipe!

  2. The fish recipe sounds delicious. My mouth is watering

    We had a great time geocaching. The three generations had fun and lots of laughs. Thanks Kim

  3. Congratulations to PapaNonny!

    I love the three generation of geocachers shot! :o)

  4. Congrats to PapaNonny!

    I also love the the 3 generation of geocachers photo! Awesome!

    I'm jealous of the fish...wish someone would stop by and bring some to me! LOL! Better yet, I wish we would go catch some!

    Hey, people sell animal skulls, bones, and antlers on Etsy... just sayin'...

  5. Congrats to PapaNonny for reaching 1400! Those crappies look good. My husband used to catch these kind of fish.

  6. Wow, I learned something new today. I never heard of geocaching. Looks like fun and the fish look delicious.

  7. Perfect way to celebrate - with a fish fry. Congrats Team PN! Here's to the next 100.


Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Please leave a message because I love to hear from you!
