Hike -n- Seek 2019

Passing along this note from IGO President, Mike Hogle… It’s my pleasure to inform you that Hike-N-seek 2019 will be held in Lynn County and more specifically the Cedar Rapids area on September 13th-15th 2019. Make sure to mark your calendars, as the date has changed since the supporting members were notified two weeks earlier.

No Social Media for Me, Please

I hear rumors that there have been some issues with the IGO’s social media accounts lately. Honestly, I don’t know what they are, and really don’t want to know. Please, do NOT be offended if you are fond of social media and enjoy using it; I’m glad for you, but I’d rather not participate myself. And please, do NOT be offended if you are my friend and feel hurt if I don’t follow you on social media or respond to your requests.…

Just Checking In

[Link corrected on 2018-Dec-16] This morning I finally got this blog to auto-build and update whenever I push changes to my Git repository.

Welcome to Iowa.Landmark's Blog

Greetings from central Iowa! My geocaching names are Summitt Dweller and Iowa.Landmark. I have two accounts/names because I’m both a “player” and a “community volunteer reviewer”. Summitt Dweller is a charter member at Geocaching.com and a co-founder, past president, and long-time webmaster of the venerable Iowa Geocachers’ Organization. As Summitt Dweller, I joined the geocaching community on 18-Feb-2002, and logged my first find on a date that’s easy to remember, because it’s a palindrome (if written just right)… 20-02-2002.…
