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.

What's that Bruin doin'

You know the old saying, "sometimes you get the bear and sometimes the bear gets you".  Well, tonight we got the bear.  What was so amazing is that we never even got out of the Jeep.  And to think of the hundreds of miles we put on our hiking boots shooting wildlife photo's and tonight we just shot right out the window of the Jeep.  We were just buzzing along taking the camera for a ride when Jeanne hollered.......Bbbbeeeeaaarrr!   I said, what!!!  And she said,  there's  a a a a bbbbbeeeeaaaarrrr. Danged if she wasn't right, there was a Bear. 

We spun around and started snapping pictures.  The big fella was kinda sour that the feeder was empty but he was gentle with it.  What an awesome night!  We not only got pictures of a bruin but we got to meet the nice people that live there.  She was pretty excited when we showed her the pictures we took.  I think it frightened her a bit.  No, let me rephrase this, I think it scared her a lot.

 Check out the size of that foot

That is an exciting encounter, Tom. I really enjoy your blog and catch up on it at least once a week, but often don't take the time to comment, but is not because I am not impressed. You are getting a lot of outstanding images and are to be commended for your efforts. I also like your other blog, Whoda "Thunk". You really have an eye for the unusual and know how to capture it well and write an interesting post about it. Keep up the good work!
