+stantastic Posted October 20, 2006 Share Posted October 20, 2006 (edited) I've been out with 3 geocaching friends and we managed to do 131 in a day up in San Jose -- that was a record we set in California a few years ago. That was beat within a few weeks by another group. And it was easily surpassed some months ago by another cacher who managed to rack up over 200 in a day. It takes A LOT of route planning before you even leave your house. NO Multi's. NO puzzle caches unless they are already solved and the coords are confirmed previously by e-mail with the cache owner. NO trinket trading (no spending time rummaging through the cache looking for anything to trade). NO signing the logbook unless you HAVE TO because of its size -- otherwise, we print up lots and lots of stickers and just slap them on the log book. It really is a whirlwind event -- get up early, start caching before sunup. Bring lots of car snacks. Maybe a QUICK stop for lunch somewhere -- but very quick. Same for dinner. We did our 131 starting at around 4:00 a.m., finished at midnight, and we wasted a good half hour on ONE particular cache where we refused to just say "let it go, man!" That hurt us. Even with route planning prior to the event, having an auto-routing GPS like the 60CS has proved time and time again to be one of the biggest advantages of getting around town. Firehouse16 My 60CS is dying! OK here's the deal. During as mega caching spree the other day (144 find!) all of a sudden my 60CS's buttons wouldn't work. So I reboot, take the batteries out, beat it a bit. After about an hour it starts working again! Woohoo! I went out the other day and after about 11 hours of caching we only could find 11. I can see maybe 15 but how in the world did you get 144? No life maybe.JK, there's no way, even if they are all placed say in the same park etc. Edited October 20, 2006 by stantastic Quote Link to comment
