I figured I'd share the log from my 1000th find at GC2MQ0X, where I dropped an appropriately themed coin. Thanks for the cointest.

1000 s! We did it.
Arrr, that Cap'n Goldie be devious, mischievous & all-round excellent cache hider. Some may think me over-confident and insane to attempt to sail this one with the wee ones along, but I had set this as my goal for #1000. Our ship set sail from the pirate port of Madison in the early morn and headed into the sun. Before long, it was time to tackle this beastie - note to self (when the description says it's a multi and you look for the final at WP1, you run the risk of looking like an idiot!) The crew disembarked at one of our favorite ports of call and immediately set out towards WP1. There was some confusion due to the early hour rum session, but eventually that got sorted. I posted the older geo-pirate as lookout, while the little monkey and I attempted to plunder the needed info. There were visions of a watery grave for us all, but we had success. Off to WP2, were the scallywags before us had laid false trails to keep us from our rightful treasure. We fought through the deception and came away with another piece of the puzzle, which led us to WP3. Ahh a water trick you say, we've got a trick. At this point there was an attempt to convince the crew that lowering them to our prize was the best idea. Here the crew mutinied and forced me to walk the plank right into the drink. So there I be, one monkey strapped to my chest and one in my arms braving the shark filled waters to secure my map. As we prepared for the return trip, I heard a commotion and spotted a muggle who was obviously confused at the scene presented to him. A wave and a splash later and we were back aboard. Luckily due to some inside pirate info, there was a fresh change of uniform for me. Onwards to the final, were we traded some treasures and left a Legendary Cachekinz, it seemed the perfect place for a sea monster to hang out.
Thanks for an awesome cache to use as my milestone, now it's off to explain to the wife what we did today! Played pirates boys, leave it at that... A little known fact: Pirates & Hippies are distantly related. Dirty dreadlocks, rum, different idea about personal possessions...hmmm. Now where's my rum! Glad to join this crew of swashbucklers that have finished the adventure.
