Well done Happy hunters on the 600 mark. I need to pull up my socks... you catching me quick. My 155 boost last month widened that gap for a bit.... eish!

Well done Besem om making 1200 !! We wish you many more happy caches!!

 

Thanks! It's been a blast caching in Bloemfontein - oom Louwtjie's caches are really something - and I broke the 1200 barrier as well as the 50-caches-in-a-day barrier on the same day. Now let's see if I can find every cache in Bloem before the week is out... :D

Happy Hunters SA registed on 13 April 2009 - today, 11 April 2010, they reached 700 finds! Congrats!! :P

I think this is an amazing achievement especially since they knew no fellow cachers and barely knew how to operate a GPS when they first started in response to a newspaper article on geocaching. Both of you are an inspiration and an example of sheer tenacity. I am enjoying our collaboration on the events too. May you go on to find many more.

Congratulations on you 700. :lol:

Thanks very much Bruce, we really appreciate your very kind words. Yes, we often have a chuckle when we think of how absolutely clueless we were in the beginning and the trials and tribulations we went through with our GPSs. If you hadn't sorted out my GPS settings, goodness knows where I'd be. :P Who knew that a simple car GPS could be so enjoyable! But we also have to give credit to our fellow cachers who, whenever we asked for help, were always very happy to assist where possible. Yes we've done our first 700 very quickly and it's been great fun but even more enjoyable has been that we've met some wonderful people and have made some great friends with whom we could share laughs, caching frustrations and a great activity! And to think that it all started with a simple newspaper article! :)

Congratulations to the Happy Hunters on 700, GerhardOosMP on 1300 and louwtjievdw on 200! Jinne Gerhard, ek sit 'n harde week van caching in om jou te probeer vang, dan hardloop jy weer vir my weg met 'n caching spree van jou eie!!

Thanks Besem, I noticed that you had a great time in Bloem and it looks like you enjoyed it. You moved up quickly with the scores. Maybe I must go and visit that caching route in America where they do more than 200 caches in a day – 24 hours non stop. That should surprise a couple of catchers. Besem, did you know that you have a twin brother in Rustenburg. About a month ago I got the eye when I greeted “you”. Ja broer, die man het gedink ek hou van hom, maar ek wou net vriendelik wees, eish. :wub: Gerhard

Wow Happy hunters.... that was a great run.... Well I need not worry about you on my tail anymore.... Now I need to chase you guys... But granted you are in JHB so I can expect that you will race up the ladder than me.... Well done guys... still remember Tinkerbell-GP and I racing round to find at least one cache on one of our runs without a bead in... I still took one of them and have it with me.... A momento of the cachers we were missing on every cache we did that same day... and you guys will still in double figures then...

 

Once again.... well done...

Yes we have a few more caches up here in Jhb, I think we still have about 300 in a 100km radius to do. After that we'll be doing a lot of weekends away to get to caches thats too far for a days drive. We're glad that we have 8 other provinces to visit!!

 

Thanks again!! :)

Thanks. 20 EC's in 6 different countries, not even provinces! My 16 owned caches are in 4 different countries around the world as well, with a 5th in development. EarthCaches are certainly the way to go - just love the diversity and experiences of each one. None are the same.

Congratulations Cincol and Carbon Hunter on the Platinum EC masters achievements….we waited a looooong time for the “Masters” to complete this BIG milestone.

 

Thanks you - oming from Africa's first - much appreciated.

 

Yep - living in and travelling to places with few or no Earthcaches has been a challenge. But we have enjoyed developing EC's across the globe, and fromk the logs I recieve, cachers are most apprciative about beiong able to find EC's in regions that there are very few other caches (Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria etc.)

 

I unfortunatley still have HEAPS and HEAPS of ideas for new EC's - from Cape to Cairo and a bunch of other places too.

 

I just need time to get them logged.

 

I must have about 6 in various stages of development on my PC at the moment. Not sure how many will see the light of day. I am trying to get more exciting ones now - than merely those for geological interst. It has been a great journey - I've really enjoyed it - now the goal is 100 EC's hidden and found.
