Hick's Big Announcement

I have something I'd like to share. I've been offered and have accepted a new position at my job. My new job title will be Technical Trainer. My job will be to train our customers and field service rep's on how to operate and repair our equipment.

One great thing about this new position is that I will get to do some travel. I will travel throughout the US and Canada as well as do some international travel. I will average about one week a month on the road.

This will be an excellent opportunity to do some geocaching in new areas and fill in those stat maps with all the places I visit. It will also be fun to really get to put some miles on some travel bugs. I really enjoy moving these trackables and posting pictures on their pages.

Rest assured, I plan to bring my camera and post my adventures here to share with everyone. I start my new job on July 1st, however I don't know when or where my first travel will be. I'm really looking forward to this new challenge.

Congratulations on the promotion. I'd just learned of geocaching when I was taking regular trips to Philadelphia, but didn't take advantage of the free time to find some caches there.

You might want to try creating a map similar to this. It would be easy to do since you don't have many finds yet. Then it's pretty easy to maintain and update.

Congrats! Cognrats! Congrats! See, I told Ma you'd be something someday!

I was on the road quite extensively for about 6 years in a past life and have a couple of things to pass along:

1. Call home every night.
2. Get the number of your local flowershop and use it for a mid-week surprise.

The calls home, specially for The Boy, is something that gets to be looked forward too, for both them and you. The flowers can make a great Friday night return ;)

Good luck and if you ever get up this way be sure to drop by!
