Our Gold Sponsors

Susan Stoker & Stoker Aces Production

New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, Susan Stoker has a heart as big as the state of Tennessee where she lives, but this all American girl has also spent the last eighteen years living in Missouri, California, Colorado, Indiana, and Texas. She's married to a retired Army man (and current firefighter/EMT) who now gets to follow her around the country.

She found her first geocache on April 27, 2006 and now she and her husband, caching as Tank Hounds, have over 11,300 cache finds in 34 countries, all 50 states, and 8 states with every country cached. Her first geobash was in…um…a long time ago and it’s still her favorite event to this day. She published her first book kind of on a whim and realized writing was a passion. Luckily, she’s able to earn a living at it and loves writing stories about men in uniform and strong women working together to get through harrowing situations. She also likes to sneak in geocaching here and there to educate the world on what an amazing hobby it is! She has over 80 books published with hopefully many many more to come.

Susan has offered her generous support to our Midwest Geobash Golden Flamingo Scholarship awards. Connect with her at www.StokerAces.com!

Practical Geocaching

Practical Geocaching® manufactures affordable, quality items for Geocachers. Located in Kentucky, we began by solving an early 'Pet Peeve' in caching: moldy, wet, disintegrating log sheets. We started making them of Rite-in-the-Rain™ paper and selling them on EBay. Our product line has grown since then, but we stick to utility items. Contact us anytime with questions, comments or new items that you want. We love to hear from other cachers! (After all, we ARE cachers!) - JimRKY & Bethie_Biker (Jim & Beth Roberts)
