+tesser Posted April 24, 2009 Share Posted April 24, 2009 What it's like for me to cache in the land of the Most Prolific Cache Hider: I know people have complained about KB's cords before, but I have learned to trust the gps and I find them within 10 feet most times. I don't know what people are talking about. One of the most amazing things I find about KB is that he responds to you when you have questions pretty quickly. I have 64 caches (about 1/3 archived) and I get about a dozen emails a day. Can you imagine his inbox every day? And yet, he reads them and responds when needed. He does maintain his caches, but he also welcomes assitance. He doesn't ask for it, I offer. He keeps track of issues with his caches to make "Maintenance runs." He knows where his caches are hidden. The number hasn't made that impossible for him. One of the most fun things about his caches are that you can go all over the state to find caches (not necessarily his) to complete one of his many challenges. So I find other's caches out in the boonies because of his challenges. Alvin's Phone Line, one of the oldest active caches in the country, has gotten alot of visits and it's in the middle of nowhere. It's required in many of his challenges. Try the KB 100 challenge sometime! His events are kind of a "Stone Soup" kind of thing. He picks a place and we all come, bring a food item to share, find some of his new caches for the event, or some old ones, and shoot the breeze around a fire pit. Nothing much better than that. Someone else pointed out his cache pages. They each are very detailed and must take some time to set up. There is a lot of thought put into themed-series. The 60-mile themed one mentioned retraces the steps of a Breast Cancer 3-Day walk made by a fellow cacher. I never would have found so many benchmarks without his caches. I have found maybe 300+ of his caches, and I have never found a Gladware. Butter tubs, yes, but not Gladware. The logs are protected by baggies. He rarely places a cache in the obvious beacon. He makes you work harder than that. Quote Link to comment
