Following glokar's example from the East North Central division, I'm adding a introductions thread for the South Atlantic area.
I call Jessup, Maryland home, but frequently cache anywhere between Delaware, Maryland, Washington, and Northern Virginia.
"DudleyGrunt" goes back nearly 25 years now. A good friend, employer, and comic shop proprietor, Steve gave me and a number of my friends both individual nicknames and a collective nickname, The Nimrods. Other names included, Squiggy Loot, Buster Nibbs, Oscar Newton, and Deacon Farley. To the best of my knowledge, only DF has done any caching and that was just a near home with his kids.
Though, I first of geocaching from our Program Manager at work in 2002, I really didn't quite get it. I have been geocaching since May 30, 2006, when I was introduced to it by my uncle, ROOKIE49. Along with OpenCaching, I am active on TerraCaching, Navicache, and...umm...that other site...umm...Groundspeak.
I've taken it as sort of my personal mission to promote the existence of "alternative" geocaching services to the general geocaching public. Toward that end, I've set up a Facebook group called Geocachers Unlimited
. Check us out.
I'm active on my local caching groups, Maryland Geocaching Society
and Northern Virginia Geocaching Organization
. There are also two global caching groups, GeoCachers 4 Christ
and the Military Assocition of GeoCachers
When I'm not caching, I may be wearing one of several hats, including Assistant Scoutmaster for Troop 424
in Savage, MD or being active with at my church, First UMC
in Laurel, MD.
