How We Started:
Lisa B. is the President and CEO of Cache Advance, Inc. She is also known as Lookout Lisa. Lisa has been geocaching since 2002, with over 180 hides and now over 8k finds. She is past president (2 years) of the Inland Empire Chapter of the Washington State Geocaching Association (WSGA).

Lisa created and designed Dr. B's Cache Repair Kits in 2005 as a fun project to fill up her spare time (when she's not out caching!) and to help promote responsible caching. Lisa had so much fun with the Repair Kits, that she designed Dr. B's Newbie Kits, and Dr. B's Canine Repair Kits too!

And that is just the beginning...

Who is Dr. B?
In a round about way, Lisa's father (yes, the real Dr B.) was the catalyst for Lisa to start geocaching. Lisa, her brother and sister bought their dad a GPS unit years ago so he could better navigate the Palouse Hills here in Washington State while out hunting and hiking.

Together Lisa and her dad learned how to use it, and when Lisa later heard about geocaching, she knew this was a sport for her!

Lisa and Dr. B now have a tradition of caching together every Father's Day, and it's still a race to the find even though he's over 80 now!! Here they are pictured at right (with Lisa's Border Collie Eve, rescued from a local pound) on top of Mt. Kit Carson out caching on Father's Day 2003.

For 2007 Dr. B, Lisa and friends participated in the Project Breakfast Meet and Greet, and then they did the Ape Cache! See right. Yes, this is the 'original lid' to the Ape Cache, too.

Dr. B is the namesake for many of Cache Advance's Signature Branded items, such as:

 - Dr. B's Newbie Kit
 - Dr. B's Cache Repair Kits (first aid for your cache!)
 - Dr. B's Canine Repair Kits (first aid for your dog!)

Be sure to say Hi to Dr. B if you see him out on the trail!
